Jonny's recovering from surgery on his appendix yesterday, and let's all wish him a speedy recovery. There's work to be done, deer to be hunted, fish to be caught! grin.gif

Hope your recovery goes well there Jon, you don't need that organ anyway. grin.gif

Sure hurts like a SOB when an appendicitis attack comes on, yikes! Had mine out about 3 1/2 years ago now.

They asked me to rate my pain in the ER on a scale of 1 to 10. Even though I replied 10, I still wasn't a priority there.

I thought I had a stomach ache that wouldn't go away, next thing I know I'm in the dang hospital again.

Pretty amazing what they can do now days, three little punch holes in my belly and that is it in and out in one night.

Better now then later I guess. I'm have been getting ready for early ice pike fishing, rigging tip-ups, checking over portables so on and so forth so good to get it out of the way now instead of big pike time.

Should of had yours removed in 3rd grade like I did. Was at home for 2 days after it exploded before I couldn't walk any more then decided i'd better tell mom to take me to the hospital.

Happy Recovering!!

I got a 4" scar on my gut where they took mine out, and if memory serves me it was like 3 days in the hospital. Sounds like they are a bit better at it these days.

Good thing they got it before ice fishings season grin.gif

Get better soon Jon. Red Lake needs you.

You don't need that particular organ any. Just takes up more space. If I had to find a bright side in it, I'd say you can now eat more. grin.gifcrazy.gif

I can't even see the scars where they went in to take mine out. I think I had 3 small 1/2" incisions. They send a camera in the one incision and the other tools in the other incisions. In and out of the hospital in 1 day with about 2-3 days at home recovering. Its really wasn't that bad.

Being a "tough guy" and not recognizing the pain is what will get you in trouble. I had a horrible gut/side ache that I kept trying to walk off thinking it would go away. It never did. Finally took a couple buddies to tell me I looked like crap and should get to the ER. Glas I listened to them.

Hope all is well Jon, the deer are waiting for you on one of you rice beds. They are in rut now, so hopefully you can go and shoot a nice one! Glad to hear you are doing fine, and maybe send the women down to Bemidji to get you some NEEDED gear for early ice! When they return leave a note saying a buck was grunting and running around the house so you had to go take care of him so he doesn't get dizzy! grin.gif

I know but they wouldn't let me have it! Told me it has to be checked for bad stuff then disposed of properly. Figure the dang thing cost me enough money I should get to keep it.

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
