Missing the opener

9 posts in this topic

this is one that I'm happy to miss, but even happier that I can look forward to next year's.

Had one of those cardiac events on 4/15, 2 days after I turned 56. Out of the clear blue (almost). blush.gif

Hope brighter days are lying ahead! Enjoy every moment in the boat, once you're back fishing!

Good LUck!

of that there is no doubt. Only missing 'cause the cardiologist wants a piece of my A$$ before he greenlights me to crank in the boat.

Me and the grandsons will probably shorefish on the RLR instead. cool.gif

Don't worry as the season winds on it just gets better and better. Plus opening weekend on Upper Red Lake is not good for the blood pressure.

Thanks, folks.

Ya know, it's interesting. MY BP, cholesterol and weight have always been pretty good. Exercise, too.

I had some chest pains, went in and got it checked out. They ran a batch of tests and determined one of the artery's was 97% blocked. They shoved in two stents.

Why? Heredity and 35 years worth of humpers. And I had quit the smokes about 3 weeks before this happened.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
