Support the local businesses

2 posts in this topic

Just a Reminder to everyone to please support the small guys. I know that it is awsome to go into a "Box store" and see all the fish tanks and the thousands of rods and reels and the guns and the furniture and so on and so on... But lets remember that the guy you buy your minnows from needs to sell more than a dozen minnows to keep his lights on. I Always make it a point to support the local businesses when I go on vacation. This guy is here in his store waiting to tell you where and how to catch fish or where the birds are at or whatever. The only way to make sure he is still there next year is to do a little business with him. The kid at the "box store" doesn't have the foggiest notion what they are hitting on the last three days but I bet the guy at the local bait shop does and as long as he is there he will be happy to tell you! smile.gif

good point, if everyone who stopped for info bought just a few new lures and a box of line or so it would go along way. so they cost a couple bucks more but the local store just may be there again next year .whats an extra 20 on a thousand dollar trip.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
