Foiles

3 posts in this topic

saw this on the Avery forum and thought that it was a good story to show ya.

I just have a great story to share. Last week an ironworker buddy of mine fell 13 ft off a scissor lift and broke his pelvis and wrist. Unfortunately he is gonna miss the majority of the season. Thats the bad part of the story. The neat part is that as friends we wanted to do something nice for our bud. We put in a call to Jeff Foiles, my buddy's favortie call maker. We found out he was in Canada and decided to email him about having a call made for him, and possibly getting Jeff to give him a call in the hospital. In the email we included out buddy's name and a number where he could be reached. We thought it would be cool if eventually my buddy heard from Foiles. About 3 hours later my buddy called and told us that Jeff Foiles had called him in the hospital and offered to send him a care package to make his healing a little easier. Now I persoanlly think that Jeff Foiles really showed a lot of class and character here. He did more to cheer up our buddy than I would have ever expected. I would like to publicly thank Jeff Foiles for cheering up my buddy during a time he is really bummed out, thanx.

i do have to commend him for that. ive never met foiles, and i have to say ive never heard anything nice about him, but we do know that after one bad thing is said about someone nothing but bad is said from then on out.

if that made that guys day then good for him and jeff.

Foiles is a freind of mine and did you know that Foiles was an Iron worker also before he made it big in the call biz.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
