Fishing Opener is Here! and...

3 posts in this topic

Can't wait!

We even have Duluth's radio station morning D.J's broadcasting live here this morning from 6 am to 9 am. Coffee and treats.

They are doing all sorts of "spots" live on the radio in all sorts of Ely places. Lunch at Journey's End (formerly Minglewood), Friday night at Vertin's with live music, Saturday morning at White Iron Beach where they'll have free barbeque, Saturday afternoon at the Ely Surf Shop; ice cream & coffee, and Saturday evening at Sam'z with karaoke and food!

So, if you are in town stop in and say hi. Or maybe you'll be somewhere else in town and see Jason & Bill from KQ95 or even just listening to FM 94.9. There appears to be lots of free entertainment and food this weekend! laugh.gif

Sorry, not trying to commercialize, just would like to see as many of you from the board as are in town! And enjoy our celebration of Minnesota's Fishing Opener.

Of course I won't be here this morning, it will be John and the crew. I'll be in around 2 pm (come on, it's almost 5 am, and I'm still at the shop, I can't come in any earlier)

Sure wish I could make it home this weekend. This will be the first opener I've missed on Basswood in 8 years. Sounds like the town will be hopping. Good Luck.

The opener is here....and my outboard is in pieces.

Put the muffs on and started it in the yard and lo and behold no water coming out of the telltale frown.gif So off comes the lower unit and check on the impeller and sure enough scratched and worn.

It seems like something crops up every year with that motor, last year it was the ignition sending unit, year before fuel/oil pump year before that it was trim and tilt. Starting to have a love hate relation with that boat crazy.gif

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
