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 just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes? 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?

      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.

      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
