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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
