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...

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
