Weapons grade loopers???

8 posts in this topic

I heard a rumor that somebody flashed a piece at the French over a turf dispute. Anybody hear about that??? Apparently nobody called it in...

Didn't hear about that, although its not too surprising I guess (frightening though). Sounds like that scene in the big lebowski grin.gif Some of those fellas firmly believe that the loopers were put there for their enjoyment alone. It's definitely frustrating to have to fight a crowd to catch fish, but there are other options than pulling a gun. If s#!t like this continues, there could be a good market for fly vests or waders lined with kevlar blush.gif I was planning on doing a little fishing this weekend, hope I don't get shot....

A buddy of mine was driving by the Lester yesterday, and he said that a semi had lost control and was hanging over the lakeside edge of the bridge. From what he told me, it sounded like some of the concrete from the bridge had been knocked into the water, and there was diesel fuel leaking as well. That river's been a zoo lately, so its more than likely that there were several fishermen down below that filled there waders with a little more than water if you know what i mean. Scary stuff...

Anyone confirm either of these screwy incidents?

Definite on the semi in the river, was on the news last night. Guy was pronounced dead at the hospital, sounds like he had a heart attack or similar as they said he most likely died before the accident occured. I think they said about 50 gallons of diesel in the river.

Didn't hear about the gun. I try to stay away from the French (too many crazies-no offense fellas).

As for the Lester, consider it verified. I was down there yesterday after work to check it out. What a mess. Lots of granite slabs in the river mouth, but she is still flowing and fish are getting through just fine. Of course I don't know from catching any because that never happens.

I once shot a man in dispute over a highly guarded pout hole, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

MrS - An eel pout sling shot isn't exactly the piece I was talking about. smirk.gif

I drove up to the Lester just now to check things out. Looks like a pretty scary deal. I'd have hated to be underneath the bridge when she came down. I hooked a wild fish last Sunday right where the bridge came down. It did make the mouth more interesting though.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
