Just curious, but has anyone seen the graffiti on the bridge that is south of 210 in Brainerd(by the DQ). How in the world do people put that up there? I have been wondering htat for years? Too cold to fish, so I thought I would come up with something

Just hold your buddy by the shoe laces and look for trains. Thats all.

Personally, I've been to that DQ too many times to find friends that strong!!!!

You can walk under that bridge my buddys and me would go under there when we where growing up lol. When a train would come thru you would have to hold on with your life, it got really shakey. Good times thou.

Yep. When I was younger we were under that bridge a-lot. Quite easy to walk on it under the tracks. Never had the need to paint anything on it, but a fun place to goof around on.

That is just craziness. About 3 weeks ago I was driving to Mille Lacs with 3 guys and we commented on that. I can guarantee you wouldn't see me doing it!

I've done some dumb things growing up, believe me. But one of the things about GROWING UP is realizing how dumb they were.

I guess my point is, I don't think its that cool or wise to point out how easy it is to climb on such a dangerous spot and how you think its a "cool place to goof around."

Last I checked, this was an open website with kids on it all the time. If your going to brag about dumb acts, do it to your other "grown up" buddies in private maybe.

There is about a 3 to 4 inch lip that you can walk on on the outside. you can get to it from a catwalk that is underneath. went under there a couple times in high school. scaling thoose beams over the rocks to get out there was the scary part. Kids I dont recomend doing this, I am not a trained professional, we got in a little trouble from the brainerd pd for being under there once.

I've done it too. The sad thing is it only makes me more jealous because of our very poor customer service and product knowledge remaining in the Brainerd area.

Reeds was bought out by Gander Mt. I also liked Reeds for thier product knowledge put I always felt pressured in the store when I was just looking. At Gander I might not get the expertize but I can shop in peace. NO MEANS NO!

Gander played their corporate card and trumped out the competition.

Interesting...I have never felt pressured once in reeds. And trust me, there has been a high percentage of my paychecks run through their tills over the years.

I think that someone willing to offer assistance could be considered "pressure" if you are always shopping at Gander where there customer service for me has typically been sub par.

Back to the original topic... I pass over the Mississippi bridge everyday, and find myself looking at the writing. I grew up in the burbs, however if I had grown up here, I probably would have been found walking the rail a time or two. It doesn't look like there is much (if anything)to walk on, but I guess if there is a will, someone will find a way.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
