With the new hunting season upon us, this is also a good time for all of us to reflect back six years ago. We often

take for granted what a great country we live in.

God Bless America and all those lives lost on this Day!

I still remember and will never forget, when the high school principle barged into chemistry class and said turn on the TV. It was right before the second plane hit. God Bless America, and God Bless our troops.

unfortunately as a nation we have a very short collective memory and seem to already have forgotten this.

Great post though, we must NEVER forget what happened and always remain vigilant in protecting our future. God bless the USA!!!

I was in back of my classroom getting ready for lab, I had Bob and Tom on and thought they were joking, then the second plane hit and they got real serious, then I knew something was up. I told another teacher to turn on the TV, I was the first in the school to catch on to what was going on. It sucked. I was a brand new teacher in a brand new school. Not how I planned on starting the school year.

I was in one classroom and a teacher who jokes around a lot came in and said someone had flown a plane into the building. We thought YA RIGHT turned on the tv and they zoomed in on the second tower getting hit. Never seen those teachers turn so white in my life we knew our lives would never be the same after that.

I was at home with my family and mainly due to my 1 week old daughter.

My wife came upstairs and said to turn on the TV, a plane hit the World Trade center. Just then the second plane hit.

I remember just feeling sick, and wondering what was going on. Completely confused and scared, not knowing what was happening.

I watched MSNBC "As it Happened" last night. It was a minimally edited replay of the entire event. I cried when I heard the voices of the people calling in on cell phones, the fear and shear terror in their voices was all it took.

I was in CO at the time and woke up from a phone call from my mom. I too turned on the TV just in time to see the second plane hit. I will never forget that day!

Like a lot of you it seems, I turned the TV on just in time to see the second plane hit. I had KQRS morning show on and Tommy B was talking about it and he said (before the second plane hit) something like, there is no way that could be an accident can it? I turned on CNN to see if it was being covered and then watched the second one hit.

I was late to work, I was trying an arbitration case that day on a Union Grievance and we all sat around and waited 45 minutes for the arbitrator who said he just couldn't leave the TV. We went through the motions of the hearing, checking the news during each break. Man it was hard to work and concentrate on putting on a case. I remember going home that night and watching the news until late into the night. A day I'll never forget.

I turned on the tube before I went in to work to check the weather and saw the report of the first one crashing and I thought it was a movie clip or something. Then it sunk in that it was live reporting, then the second one hit. I can still see myself sitting in the chair stareing at the tube in disbelief.

I was driving from Corona Ca, to LAX to fly back to Milwaukee. When I dropped of my rental car, and walked in to the Midwest Terminal it was completely silent. Needless to say I didn’t fly that day and luckily was smart enough to get a hotel QUICK knowing anything close will be booked... 4 days later when I flew back LAX looked like a 3rd world Country with all the armed guards at the airport.. Everywhere you looked you saw a guard with a machine gun...Pretty quite on that flight going back to Milwaukee...

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
