HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

21 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say Happy Halloween!! Kind of excited to see all the kids tomorrow night...I will be handing out crappie minnows and wax worms again this year. Instead of carrying little plastic pumpkins up to my door for me to put the candy in, the kids started bringing styrofoam buckets!!!

When that is over with, I think I will head over to Great Outdoors's house for a little toilet papering and window soaping!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I love Halloween! Just got done hacking up my jack-o-lantern....Here it is!!

I'll drive, GO sold me some defective minnows this past Summer grin.gif

Justin, good idea about handing out bait for Halloween, Grandma always said a child who likes to fish will stay out of trouble.

Three vermin plotting an attack on Firebase TGO.

I usually disable the trip flares and claymores on Halloween, but not this year for obvious reasons. smirk.gif

Probably find all three of you stuck in the concertina wire! (just like Tullibees in a gill net) grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You guys kill me. grin.gif

Nobody trick-or-treats up here on Finn Hill. Guess we're a little too low-rent over here. Now, after the last couple years of lights on and candy in a bowl (which Mrs. Catfish ended up eating herself over the subsequent weeks), we just leave porch lights off and don't bother. But that's OK. We know there are a lot of kids having a great time in other parts of Ely on a fun night. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin, what do you hand out to the non-fishing youth? grin.gif

Happy Halloween!

Being rural not many kids come around and the ones that do are driven. Thats what I'll be doing, driving Miss Chiara around the country side.

I'll get the candy she doesn't want for the deer stand. What would Deer season be without Halloween candy. Those bite size morsels are perfect.

If its a good year I'll have some left over for First Ice.

Spot tails, you bet! smile.gif

The party will be held at my house on White street. wink.gif

Turn right at the first traffic light (Central Ave) when coming in to Ely on hwy 169. Go three blocks, then turn left on White street. Go one block, then slow down. I live on the second house on the right on the 2nd block! cool.gif

My red Chevy pickup should be parked in front.

We can have a hugh bonfire, when we burn down my garage after about 60 beers each! grin.gif

Welcome all to the White Street Halloween Extravaganza cool.gif

HEY HEY HEY....Wait just a minute!!!!!!! That IS NOT where the party is being held as this is the home of the one-and-only "Fish Master" grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You guys can sure meet me over here and we can then caravan over to Great Outdoors's house. I will provide the "necessary" supplies (T.P., soap, shaving cream, baloney, eggs, etc.)! grin.gif

Steve- The answer to your question: "What do you give the kids who don't fish?" Well, Steve, I give them brown paper bags with a little dog surprise inside and directions to G.O's!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin, if you REALLY wanted to convert our youth of today into anglers, you'd put a Pocket Fisherman in each trick-or-treater's sack as well as the bait. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin was that word a lunch meat? LOL

The story of Halloween goes back over 2000 years to the ancient Celts. Druidic priests regarded the day as the end of the year. Not only was it their day for celebrating the year's harvest, but October 31 itself was also the day of Samhain, a festival for honoring the dead. In order to appease the wandering spirits they believed roamed at night, the Celtic priests made fires in which they burned sacrifices, made charms, and cast spells.

Portions of the Celtic holiday of the dead eventually passed into Christian culture after the Romans conquered the Celts and tried to bring the Celts into the "Christian fold." It eventually became apparent to the church leaders that the Celts, in spite of their conformation to some aspects of Christian culture, were stubbornly sticking with elements of their old religion.

So, in the seventh century AD, the church moved its All Saints' Day, a holiday for honoring early Christian martyrs, from a day in May to November 1, thus associating it with the old Druid death rituals of October 31. By the tenth century A.D., the Catholic Church had added a new holiday, All Souls' Day. This day was set aside to honor all of the dead, not just the early Christian Saints.

Celebration of Halloween came to America with early Irish and Scottish immigrants. By then, though, it had already started to lose its mysterious overtones and was becoming merely a harvest celebration: a night of bobbing for apples, eating popcorn, and telling ghost stories around a bonfire. It was already changing into the holiday for children with which we in the 20th century are so familiar.

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
    • curt quesnell
      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you
    • delcecchi
      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
