Please say a prayer for the family of John Lueck. He passed away this past weekend. He was the owner of the Oasis in Pequot Lakes.

Thank you,

Walleyedan

I knew John well. You could go in and have a cup of coffee and he would talk fishing. It hard to understand. Nice family, seemed to have everything going for him. Appreciate what you have, not what you dont have. Im going out on pelican today, dont care if I catch anything. Want to feel that breeze in my face and be happy. Have a good one.

Done

I didn't know John, but I'm sure his family will need our prayers and all the help they can get.

Thanks Dan, for your post.

The Fisherman's Prayer For John Lueck:

God grant that I may live to fish

Until my dying day

And when it comes to my last cast

I then most humbly pray

When in the Lord's safe landing net

I'm peacefully asleep

That in his mercy I be judged

As good enough to keep.

I knew John well, and it was a tragic suprise to hear of the circumstances. I never thought he was the type. He had $$ and an awesome mom/dad, kids and wife.

I was saddened to hear of it. I still feel strange!

He was a heck of a guy, always smiling.

...he'll be missed.

May God take you into his kingdom.

God bless.

I dont know the whole story, just what I read.

My heart goes out for his family. Dealing with a mental illness is a hard thing. As a society, we need to deal with depression like we do all other illnesses( Diabetes, Cancer, HIV, etc). Be proactive, get help, get educated on Mental Health issues. Nobody knows the pain he went through, one can only imagine.

May he rest in peace.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
