Successful season?

8 posts in this topic

Since this forum is sitting empty I figured I would try to get some activity in here.

 

So, how has everyone's season been going?

Mine has been good so far. I do need to get out more. So far in league play, I've been lucky the first two rounds and won.

I have also been lucky, to land a ball in the fairway. Nice early year, probably only 5 rounds in so far, but I get to start my day working on the course, can't complain :)

After dealing with the dreaded shanks for most of last summer and the early part of this year, I am finally past them for now.  Been playing almost every weekend and league on Thursday night.  Yesterday played Inverwood for the first time, broke 90 for the first time this year, had nevered played there either.  

Waiting now for a replacement 3w, my not even two year old taylormade 3w had a structural defect and they are sending me a new one, free of charge.  Hoping to get a new putter soon too.

 

and then it will be hunting season, ice fishing and wishing for golf season

Made it out for my fourth round of the year on Saturday afternoon.  Me and a buddy golfed timber creek with a couple randoms. Beautiful day and made better with three birdies. Lost it on the back nine ended up shooting 83 after a front nine of 39. I'll take it after close to a month lay off since my last round. Beer was cold, greens were aight and did I mention the beers were cold. FORE!!!⛳️

Went to Mississippi National on Saturday. The course was in ok shape considering the shut down a couple years back. There is still room for improvement.

 

As for my game, it could have been better. Not representative of my season so far.

 

$40 for the Highlands and a cart is still a deal imo.

Minnesota National is on the list but not high on the list this summer.  The Jewel and a brother in law weekend at Dacotah Ridge are for sure on the list.  A return trip to Stone Ridge is up there as well.  7 weeks until the annual trip to the John Deere Classic.  Hoping to get to tag long to the PGA Championships too

I'm hoping to make my first trip to Jewel this summer as well as Inverwood.

Heard good things about both.

Few courses opened up today and more due to open this weekend. Anybody planning on hitting the links? I golfed once the day after New Years, but never in February. Might be shorts weather with highs in the 60's. Bring it on!

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
