cancelled

5 posts in this topic

I had been planning a trip with 6 of my closest friends to LOTW.

We were scheduled to be up there March 7-12th. Tip up fishing for big jacks.

My step-dad has had cancer for a very long time and in the past 5 days, the cancer has taken over his body. Hospice will be coming in tomorrow to make him as comfortable as possible.

He and my mom live in Iowa and I'm stuck down here in Texas. That makes it so much harder.

So to all of you on the ice....enjoy yourself and good luck!

Thanks Fisky for the help you gave!

Sorry to hear of this Doop, I will do my best to catch a few in your honor. I will be up there March 13th - 17th.

I feel what you are going through. We had to bury my father in-law today. I have lived next door to him for the last 13 years of my life and he too has battled cancer for the last 4 years. He passed this Tuesday evening with my wife and her mother at his side. Hospice has to be one of the most incredible services in the world. What wonderful people. You are in my thoughts and I hope your father can rest in peace.

Sorry to hear that as well. Went through that process with my mother-in-law about five years ago & a good friend a few years before that. It's a nasty disease that we're all impacted by in some way sooner or later. You & your family will be in our prayers.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      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.
