Anglers raise money for Duluth woman

A gathering of lake trout anglers on Burntside Lake near Ely last weekend raised $1,888 for a Duluth woman who is recovering from complications following brain surgery.

The sixth annual “Burntside Bash” was a gathering of anglers who frequent a fishing forum at http://www.fishingminnesota.com. This year, 75 anglers gathered Jan. 26 at Burntside to fish for lake trout and to raise money for Duluth’s Deb Radosevich, who lives with Tom Pfister, a regular contributor to the fishing Web site. Radosevich, 44, suffered an aneurism and a stroke following brain surgery in October to remove a tumor from her brain. She is currently at Chris Jensen Nursing Home in Duluth.

Anglers raised the money through donations and a silent auction, said Ely’s Steve Foss, one of the event’s organizers and a moderator on the Web site’s forums. Several people and businesses donated items for the auction, and food for the event was donated as well, he said.

Donations can be made at Republic Bank, c/o Deb Radosevich Benefit, 3 Thomson Road, Esko, MN 55733.

Its great that the Duluth News even gave us a blurb \:D

Sorry, Northlander, one of the meanings of canonize (since before Canon cameras became so prevalent) is: To glorify.

Actually I think "canonized" means to be named a saint. Let's hear it for st. steve.

Catholic school upbringing taught me that canonize has several meanings, and one is to be named to sainthood. Another is to be recognized or sanctioned formally by the church. Another is to glorify.

But let's not get carried away. My first four laker outings this season were very nice, but my last five included three skunkings and two with only one small eater each time.

There are no laker fishing saints, only laker gods, and we know the gods are in charge and love to level the playing field. cry.gifcry.gifcry.gif

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
