NO FIRES THIS WEEKEND!

1 post in this topic

Hey Guys and Gals,

With the opening day hoopla brimming I'd like to pass on a friendly reminder that the northwoods are kinder dry right now. The Gunflint fire looks to have just jumped Gunflint lake and heading towards personal dwellings. Although this isn't in our immediate backyard, our conditions are quite similiar. Lets use this as a gentle reminder of the volatile situation. Firefighters are being called in from all over, and they don't need any more work. Even a small seemingly harmless fire can start a disaster. Please refrain from any sort of fire as well as take it upon yourself to help educate any others whom might not understand the potential danger. I witnessed a fire yesterday likely by some kids in the woods across from my home, and was able to take care of the situation. I hope everyone reading this post will also take a moment out of there Fishing to pass on the word should they come across a similiar situation. Good Luck and Good Fishing!

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
