It's not even thanksgiving, and there is already that yucky Christmas music playing on the radio!!! confused.gif Doesn't it get sickening enough playing that crap AFTER thanksgiving and having to put up with it till January?

Don't get me wrong, I love the Lord, I just hate that sickening music that has nothing to do with Him at all!

What's next, Are they going to start rolling out the Christmas tunes right after Labor Day?

Cal....It's only a little over a month away? It's a seasonal thing...a week or so from now and it will be all fine and good. It's only for a short time...it could be worse. And it's not gonna change! Why put yourself through it?

We started playing classic Christmas music a week ago....Dean Martin, Elvis, Bing Crosby....gotta work up to it, get in the mood, it helps soften the blows of the up comming Christmas debt. Grit your teeth, you'll get through it. It's like snuff, some people like it, some don't! grin.gif Hey, what about switching stations?

I don't suppose it's anything different then preparing for the summer or winter openers in advance? FleetFarm, Cabellas, Gander, they all come out with seasonal stuff well in advance of the actual event...of course you don't have to listen to a new reel, or a tip-up, or a pair of waders in their ads...but they are just trying to lighten peoples spirits and get people in the Christmas holiday mood!

I agree! The Philistine merchants have to sell, sell, sell and some college educated bozo told them Christmas Music puts people like us in the mood to spend, spend, spend. Personally, I just give a card with money in it and they can go buy what they like AFTER the Christmas sales are over and get it for 50% off. No shopping, No listening to dumb music, and more time to fish.

P.S. If they tell you giving money is NOT Christmas remind them that GOLD was one of the gifts they gave at Bethlehem!

I know one thing, the Boy Scouts best get to steppin with their wreaths if they want us for customers again this season! I danged near bought one from Cub when we went grocery shopping this morning.

If something doesn't develope by Friday, we'll be going back to Cub. Yesterday, we put up a nice little Balsam my wife picked out....get an early start on the fire hazard!

She has some gifts wrapped and under it already! I used to be a "Bah, Humbug!" but over the years, she has changed me and I helped!

Now I look forward to Christmas, why, we were even dancing to some Elvis Christmas music just this afternoon! cool.gif

Calvinist,

I agree with you. It's the season to avoid the radio and the malls. Christmas has become insanity. Time to hunker down with family and celebrate the real reason for the season.

I don' know about the rest of you, but Jingle Bell rock and "I saw momma kissing Santa Claus" every hour on a canned station are not my idea of classical Christmas music.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
