Who's the Jerk?!

12 posts in this topic

Who's the jerk that ripped on Gail for not having the river open?!

The ignorance of some people just leaves me shaking my head. The one person that's doing the most to keep us all informed, and she get's crap about controling a natural phenomenon? The freakin' weatherman can't get it right more than 24 hrs. ahead and we're supposed to tell you 2 or 3 weeks ahead to the day? Get real.

Probably one of the same guys that call us demanding to know what day it will be open and what day would be the best fishing and if we would guarantee him fish. If your looking for a guarantee of fish it tells me that you are used to not catching fish and are probably the guy raving at the ramp about "no fish in this #$%#&@*! river" when I've just hit 100 fish in 4 or 5 hours.

We always say that the A-hole factor is about 1 in 1000 with our fisherman customers, and that is so much better than any other business I know, but this guy gets the Golden A-hole Award from me!

Tell Gail you're sorry for being stupid and maybe the River Gods will smile on you again. Otherwise I hope someone pours gas on your bait and your boat springs a leak.

To end on a positive note, this all say it together:

THANK YOU GAIL!

Gail:

I hope the jerk doens't make you think we are all that way. I for one think you're special and appreciate what you have done for me and the boyz when we come up there fishing (note fishing not catching) even if our tape measures are a little off. So Gail THANK YOU for the wonderful job you do for us cit-idiots and your hospitality.

Gail and Doug are great on the way they pass on information to us less fortunate, the reason I fish is to get away from the real world, its sad some dumb a$$ cant get that. So Clementson and R/D keep up the good work, your second to none to me and I've never even stayed at either of your locations cool.giflaugh.gifcool.gif

All the effort Gail, dutchman have done to keep us informed is greatly appreciated by many. Far more people rely on the info than we could know. Gail I will be seeing you tomorow night.

It would be very hard to plan a trip without local reports.I know I am very grateful.

There are many options for those who just can't wait. My group will be starting our trip tomorrow. Boats loaded with ice gear. Looks like we will be putting in at Pelland or fishing down river on the ice. Maybe even a trip up to the lake is in order.

I would also like to thank Gail, Doug, and Marilyn for all their effort as well as their continued pleasant personalities. It seems its hard to find that as much anymore and customer service like that keeps people coming back. Don't think it goes unnoticed...

I can't belive that someone would give them a hard time. They don't have to keep everyone informed on the condition of the river, but they do and should be thanked.

Agreed, without the Royal Dutchman and Clementson's reports we'd all be driving up checking on a daily basis. Granted it's only 2 hours for me... wink.gif

Yeah Northlander, I too am wondering where my call was. I just spoke to BDR two weeks ago and he stated he wasn't coming up this year... He's trying to go incognito... grin.gif

Thanks again Gail, the reports are great, don't let the overly anxious one's spoil the excitement!!

Don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch. Seems like there's always got to be that one (Contact Us Please), doesn't it?

Hey thanks guys, it sure makes the trips worth it. The last couple weeks our lives got turned upside down and Doug has been great with you guys on this site, a BIG thanks to you! I couldn't ask for a better neighbor!

Art checked river today and tonight we got a call from a friend that just back from Birchdale area and told us the open water has reached Manitou! I'll be posting more pics tomorrow and course checking again! It's getting exciting now!

Thanks again & Take Care

The updates and postings are more then helpfull to a true outdoors person. These bad apples (to say) are the reason be it hunting, guns in general, fishing, and almost everything outdoor are giving outdoor enthusis such a bad rep. Its a wonder why funding and children are struggling to get into these wonderful activites.

If anybody wants to be guarnteed perfect conditions and fish jumping into the boat would be better off buying them at the store and leave the unperdictable fishing to the sportsman. You guys on the border are doing a great job-Thanks.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
