Is there a bank where we can send donations? I can't attend but would love to help out Deb and Tom. Is there a silent auction type thing going? Maybe we can bid off the FM site. Sorry, if you read this please refer to the Burntside bash post for more info. Prayers.

Tunrevir I edited your post to say Tom not Steve. Tom is Debbie's long time boyfriend.

I dont know of a bank account yet.

You can send a check to me and I can get it there or you can send a check to Frank or Steve and they can get it to the proper hands. Check the Deb Redosovich Burntside Bash post for their adresses.

E-mail me if ya need my help.

We haven't really talked about a special fund set up for Deb through a bank, and I don't think we need to do that. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. I've already gotten a few e-mails from folks saying they were mailing me checks made out to Deb. I've got a box in my office where they'll all go for now. Send them my way or Frank's way or to Northlander, it's all good, and they'll get gathered at the Bash and combined into one big ole packet of caring to present to Deb.

Kallista its the thought that counts. I know Deb would understand your situation better than anyone. I hope all is going well with your daughter as well.

Maybe you can make it to the bash and give a little something there. Maybe make up some flies that we could raffle off? That would be great. Nothing like catching a fish on a flie/lure given to ya by a fellow FMer.

Hopefully if things go right we will be able to have Deb at the Bash and be able to say HI and give her a hug.

I believe that there has been an account already set up at Republic Bank in Esko for Deb. I will call her sister and find out for sure and post info in case folks want to go that route.

All three of us will be at the dinner on Monday, we'll see you all there.

Kallista,

That's quite a haul for a person to make on a Monday night coming from Ely. You are such a kind hearted lady. The flies are a great contribution.

I just got off the phone with Deb's sister and she said they are hoping for a good turnout tonight, and that little by little Deb is making progress each day.

See you all there tonight. Drive safe.

I was amazed when we pulled into the parking lot and there was no place to park. It was great to see such a large turn out for such a worth while cause.It was nice to see fellow FMers and to get some time to chat with Tom (Skippers Kid) about Deb to get a more detailed description on her progress. I really hope and pray that she will make it to the Bash.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.
    • eyeguy 54
      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up. 
    • Squirrelhawke
      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.
