Who was it?

6 posts in this topic

I was at a cross country meet in Faribault tonight and I saw a green ford truck with Fishing Minnesota and Hotspot outdoors decals on the doors. Who was it?

Was that the Fairbault Invitational held on one of the local golf courses? I ran there in high school a few times. My senior year it was about 95 degrees with high humidity and we had runners dropping like flies. A few were carted off the course and brought to area hospitals. Not alot of fond memories of that course. That last year there almost did me in. I must have drank a gallon of water from bottles that were tossed to me as I ran and it didn't seem to do a bit of good. I was always a track man myself anyways.

That was me. It was run at Alexander Faribault Park. My daughter was in it and I must have run a mile myself trying to encourage and then get ahead, encourage some more etc.

I'm very proud of her and her long distance running. I received a call from John of Fishing the Wildside and had to ask him if he minded talking on Monday as I was on the run myself trying to get in place for her smile.gif

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
