Hey Jim,

Did you make it out crappie fishing the past few weeks? I was going to swing by this morning and say hi, but you weren't around. I'm into my second week now of ice fishing rehab/withdrawals. Work is totally insane, over-rated, and it is going to be a long season!

I sure would like to get out with ya sometime this summer and crush some of those Burntside Walleyes! I will give you a call sometime this summer.

Take Care,

Justin A.K.A "The Fish Master"! cool.gif

Jim took too much Geritol, Justin. With a mouth that size, you'll understand how such things can happen. His obituary will be in the next editions of the Ely newspapers.

Kidding!!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Sure, now I've done it. I'll just have to keep my sonar tuned for torpedos this summer on Bside. shocked.gif

No bubba, no smarting here. I have some characteristics of a rhino, including its thick skin.

You'll note from the date that it was April Fool's Day, and I was just having some fun with you, you old bugger. grin.gif

Geritol?? AHH-HAAA!!! That makes sense- He probably needs those vitamins to give himself a little boost reeling in those 14" Burntside Walleyes! Then, after he reels those monsters in, he needs to take a few days off to recuperate and order up the Ben-Gay from Sam's Club in the economy sized 5 gallon pail!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Later,

Hey Steve-

Jim is a pretty crafty guy, I will give him that. You just need to enter his brain to get the best of him! Just remember he has copious amounts of time over at the bait shop to think of these things. He is just really worried that his new Bowflex machine isn't going to get him into shape for Walleye fishing. I can understand that because that landing net gets awfully heavy when Justin is in the boat!

You got that right, Steve grin.gif When (and if) Justin gets into my boat I will have to drink a six pack of Geritol, since I'll be catching all of the Walleyes, and Justin will contribute his usual limit of Rock Bass cool.gif Don't worry JG, I'll carry the load again! smile.gif Remember a takeoff of the old song title, "You aint my Brother, you're heavy" grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

That's it, El Stevo, the gloves are off,Babeee mad.gif Just for that, I'm sentencing you and Justin to be fishing partners this summer, so I only need one torpedo to rid the world of you two vermine smile.gif I'll know when you guys are on the lake, since the boat will displace enough water to bring the level up 3 feet. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Jim, I'll use small words so you can un-der-stand: You ain't got game. grin.gif

P.S. -- It's spelled "vermin," not "vermine." Of course, Hillman told me you flunked spelling. grin.gifgrin.gif

I'll finally pipe in on this one and be on Jim's side. Hillman? YIKES! HA HA OH man...Steve I believe you just gave Jim enough ammo to last a life time. Hillman...oh boy. The self proclaimed "historian of Ely". shocked.gif

Anywho...have a fun time Jim. GAME ON!

Harv, I didn't give Jimmie any ammo at all, because I don't hang out with Mr. Hillman.

But Jim doesn't need me to supply him with ammo. He loads his own bullets, and he's always gotta wear those knee-high rubber boots while he's doing it because of how deep the bull---- gets. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I'm surprised Jim hasn't thrown a haymaker back yet. I think he's out in the garage along Burntside Lake calibrating his new torpedoes. grin.gif

Yo, Jim, don't zap my house with one. Wait until I'm alone in the boat so you spare my wife and the cats and dogs. SOMEBODY'S gotta survive to cash in on all that life insurance. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I don't know Steve, when you quote Mr. Hillman, it appears that you two are good Buds! cool.gif I also notice that you use the term Bubba quite a bit, must be from the series "Nash Bridges." Perhaps we're seeing a preview from the next community play. Is Mike playing your partner Cheech? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Bubba, I've quoted you, too, to a couple of friends of mine.

"Maki says you can catch lakers in shallow mucky bays," Foss said.

Does that mean you and I are hanging out, bubba? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I should have known when the going gets tough for old Maki, the fat jokes and Rock Bass comments would be flying!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Jim is just upset that his Hoveround electric wheelchair won't pull his new Otter sled out on the ice. His is also mad that Samz place isn't going to stock Ensure anymore!!!!

I have to admit that I find Steve's comments about Iron Mike particularly disturbing!!! I think they may be bestest buddies!! grin.gif Also, his bubba comments raise a red flag that he may be a fan of the TV show "Walker-Texas Ranger" That is alot of ammo The Great Outdoors can use to his advantage!!!

Oh, boy...I can't wait to see what is on here tomorrow night...... grin.gif

Later, Justin

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.
    • Ron Vroom
      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
