More than a friend

5 posts in this topic

I've been think about life and how you never know how many days you have on this earth and how your time is spent day to day on issues of life. Have you been helpful or hurtful to those around you? What kind of impact are you making on those the closest to you? What about the people you meet that you don't know, are they left thinking " he sure was nice are helpful "or "theres something about that guy" are they left with a positive memory? I just lost someone very dear to my heart and there's nothing I wouldn't of done to help him out in anyway. He died March 23rd at 24 years of age, much to soon for anyone, specially him. He was a like a brother to my family and a son to me. He was a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, with two tours in Iraq, a husband and a father, loved by many. Love to hunt and fish and flex his muscles, tough as they come! Memories of him will last a life time in all our hearts but the loss of him will forever leave a void. He lost all hope, felt all alone even with so many people around him that loved him, he lost hope and we lost someone very dear to our hearts! "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a Hope" without God there is no hope, I failed my friend, don't go a day longer without finding hope in the Lord, it maybe to late!

I have lost a friend very early also. And it seems that sometimes the saying,"Only the good die young" holds so true for a lot of us. As humans we always look and try to find "reasons" and "whys" to fill our voids. But it might just be a simple as it was GOD's plan and there was nothing we could do. There will never be a end to the "what ifs" or "I could haves", but with time, scars heal. Scars heal, life goes on, but scars are permanant, which will always make you think and remember, about the good times and bads. My prayers go out to you, his friends, and family.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
