Just wanted to say Happy Halloween!! Kind of excited to see all the kids tomorrow night...I will be handing out crappie minnows and wax worms again this year. Instead of carrying little plastic pumpkins up to my door for me to put the candy in, the kids started bringing styrofoam buckets!!!

When that is over with, I think I will head over to Great Outdoors's house for a little toilet papering and window soaping!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I love Halloween! Just got done hacking up my jack-o-lantern....Here it is!!

I'll drive, GO sold me some defective minnows this past Summer grin.gif

Justin, good idea about handing out bait for Halloween, Grandma always said a child who likes to fish will stay out of trouble.

Three vermin plotting an attack on Firebase TGO.

I usually disable the trip flares and claymores on Halloween, but not this year for obvious reasons. smirk.gif

Probably find all three of you stuck in the concertina wire! (just like Tullibees in a gill net) grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You guys kill me. grin.gif

Nobody trick-or-treats up here on Finn Hill. Guess we're a little too low-rent over here. Now, after the last couple years of lights on and candy in a bowl (which Mrs. Catfish ended up eating herself over the subsequent weeks), we just leave porch lights off and don't bother. But that's OK. We know there are a lot of kids having a great time in other parts of Ely on a fun night. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin, what do you hand out to the non-fishing youth? grin.gif

Happy Halloween!

Being rural not many kids come around and the ones that do are driven. Thats what I'll be doing, driving Miss Chiara around the country side.

I'll get the candy she doesn't want for the deer stand. What would Deer season be without Halloween candy. Those bite size morsels are perfect.

If its a good year I'll have some left over for First Ice.

Oh that sounded bad...anyway, I'm wearing my pumpkin shirt and jack o lantern socks (I have a crazy sock fetish-the weirder the socks the better)! Did anyone read the front page of the Duluth News Tribune today? We have REAL witches living amongst us....

Spot tails, you bet! smile.gif

The party will be held at my house on White street. wink.gif

Turn right at the first traffic light (Central Ave) when coming in to Ely on hwy 169. Go three blocks, then turn left on White street. Go one block, then slow down. I live on the second house on the right on the 2nd block! cool.gif

My red Chevy pickup should be parked in front.

We can have a hugh bonfire, when we burn down my garage after about 60 beers each! grin.gif

Welcome all to the White Street Halloween Extravaganza cool.gif

HEY HEY HEY....Wait just a minute!!!!!!! That IS NOT where the party is being held as this is the home of the one-and-only "Fish Master" grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You guys can sure meet me over here and we can then caravan over to Great Outdoors's house. I will provide the "necessary" supplies (T.P., soap, shaving cream, baloney, eggs, etc.)! grin.gif

Steve- The answer to your question: "What do you give the kids who don't fish?" Well, Steve, I give them brown paper bags with a little dog surprise inside and directions to G.O's!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin, if you REALLY wanted to convert our youth of today into anglers, you'd put a Pocket Fisherman in each trick-or-treater's sack as well as the bait. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Justin was that word a lunch meat? LOL

The story of Halloween goes back over 2000 years to the ancient Celts. Druidic priests regarded the day as the end of the year. Not only was it their day for celebrating the year's harvest, but October 31 itself was also the day of Samhain, a festival for honoring the dead. In order to appease the wandering spirits they believed roamed at night, the Celtic priests made fires in which they burned sacrifices, made charms, and cast spells.

Portions of the Celtic holiday of the dead eventually passed into Christian culture after the Romans conquered the Celts and tried to bring the Celts into the "Christian fold." It eventually became apparent to the church leaders that the Celts, in spite of their conformation to some aspects of Christian culture, were stubbornly sticking with elements of their old religion.

So, in the seventh century AD, the church moved its All Saints' Day, a holiday for honoring early Christian martyrs, from a day in May to November 1, thus associating it with the old Druid death rituals of October 31. By the tenth century A.D., the Catholic Church had added a new holiday, All Souls' Day. This day was set aside to honor all of the dead, not just the early Christian Saints.

Celebration of Halloween came to America with early Irish and Scottish immigrants. By then, though, it had already started to lose its mysterious overtones and was becoming merely a harvest celebration: a night of bobbing for apples, eating popcorn, and telling ghost stories around a bonfire. It was already changing into the holiday for children with which we in the 20th century are so familiar.

Better yet, a "Nightmare on White Street" party at Jason's, er Justin's!! shocked.gif

Then at midnight, he can tell you the story of a group of people that went on a lonely road, let's say to Burntside Lake, with evil intentions of mischief. mad.gif

None of the party ever returned! shocked.gif

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.
