A well deserved thanks for a Charter boat Captain.

31 posts in this topic

After finding this forum several weeks ago looking for a charter captain, I found many people here recommending Skippers Kid Charter Service. I looked up Skippers Kid and booked a whole day for my son and I. Not only was Tom more than accommodating and more than willing to show us how it’s done we had our limit shortly after 8:00am and we were back at the dock by 10:00am. Was I impressed, Thanks again Tom for everything.

Nice fish Orlip! The boy look's like he had a blast. We also recently went with Tom out on the big lake and I can honestly say I have never seen a guy work so hard to put fish in the box. Tom wants nothing more but to satisfy the customer. He is very experienced and know's how to get fish. On another note, congratulation's on getting hooked on the big lake. You might as well refinance the house now for all those spoons and bombers you are going to buy. grin.gif Take care, and thank's again Capt. Tom. BC

Yup Bigcountry hit it on the head. I went to Marine General for some Crappie stuff and wound up buying 16 new spoons. They just happened to be 20% off and some were only $3. So of course I had to get 2 of every one. grin.gif It is addicting. Oh by the way I did buy every last pink with black dots they had. wink.gif

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites citizens to learn about proposed recreation opportunities in Centennial State Forest, a 3,394-acre state forest in Cass County donated to the DNR in 2013.  The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26, in the Walker Community Center Rotary Room, 105 Tower Ave., Walker. Following a presentation at 6 p.m., there will be time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Minnesota state forests are classified into three groupings for off-highway vehicle (OHV) and motor vehicle use: In “managed” forests you may ride on all state forest roads, signed trails and non-designated routes that are not posted closed. In “limited” forests you may ride on all forest roads and trailed signed for specific motor vehicle use. “Closed” forests are open only to highway-licensed vehicles on forest roads. As part of the overall planning process, the DNR is proposing to classify Centennial State Forest as “limited.” The DNR is also proposing to designate approximately 11 miles of forest roads, to allow OHV and motor vehicle use on those roads. Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, July 26. For more information call: Tim Williamson, OHV acquisition and development specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 218-308-2369. Joel Lemberg, Backus Area forest supervisor, Forestry Division, 218-947-3232, ext. 223. For more information, visit the Centennial State Forest webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.  “We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.” This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20. For information on purchasing tickets, visit the DNR-United page. For questions or orders of 10 tickets or more, call 763-476-2237 or email tickets@mnufc.com. The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program. The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Was out in DL area Saturday....still the same....prespawn staging 8-12 ft but did get some dandies late evening in front of an inlet pretty shallow 4-6ft and they were the most agressive Crappies I've caught this spring.  Mother Nature has dealt us another yo-yo spring up our way and that $uck$

        It's crazy people just have no respect what so ever for the environment or for other anglers.
