Hi-On Skeeter

Recommended Posts

Surface Tension

The day I knew was getting closer and probably would have been over months ago hadn't it had been for the desire and playfulness that she always had that kept her young at heart., it was there up till the very end. The preparation and task kept me numb, it had to be done. Today I put Skeeter down. As I write a knot in my throat starts and tears come, I'm happy that sorrow is here now, she was a great dog.

Hi-On Skeeter.

Losing a best friend like that is about one of the hardest things there is in life. Sorry for your loss. You have a million memories of her to keep you going. Some day you will be ready for another friend. They will never be able to replace Skeeter, but you will grow to love them just the same. Take care.

Thoughts and good wishes to you ST. We put our 13 year old lab Sadie down on Monday. She had one of the best noses out there and would go all day.

Here's to happier days ahead, and to all the great memories.

You still have a great dog, just now in your memories, and Skeeter probably made sure you had plenty of those memories before she left. I am very sorry for your loss and I hope you and your family mend well.

take care

Daniel

So sorry for your loss.

"A dog does not live as long as a man and this natural law is the font of many tears. If a boy and a pup might grow to manhood and doghood together, and together grow old, and so in due course die, full measure of heartache might be avoided. But the world is not so ordered, and dogs will die and men will weep for them as long as there are dogs and men."------Ben Ames William from Wingshooters Autumn.

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
    • Rick
      Nice outing and very nice pics.
    • Wheres_Walter
      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
    • Borch
      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
