All Quiet on the Western Front??

I left the "no fire" zone and the safe confines of the Hillman store and crossed the DMZ preparing for the worst. My destination was the disputed territory known as the "Gaza Strip" grin I kept a close look out for abandoned plow trucks, burning Humvees, and fish house obstacles but made it safely to the Holy Land with out any mishaps except for a couple of wrong turns. The Triangle swallowed one of my rods but Kelly P came to the rescue. He caught a keeper walleye in one of my holes and attached to the fish was my other rod.

You're right, that's taking customer service to a whole new level. As for the Gaza Strip, I've always thought of Hillman's driveway to the lake as a haunted graveyard occupied by the tortured souls of abused plow trucks. My Chevy always gets nervous driving through there.

Yup, it took all of 5 mimutes in your house to discover one you and Doc's problems. Keep the rod ABOVE the ice and you'll catch more fish. grin As far as Fred I thought it was one of his better times. At least he didn't do it on you leg. grin

Reminds me of the first time Twitter and Tigger met. Twitter invited Tigger to join him in his portable to do some fishing. Strange sight as Twitter is 6'4" and Tigger is almost 5'. But in any case they both loved Crown Royale so they took Twitter's bottle into the portable and stuck Tiggers bottle in the snow in front of the door to keep it properly chilled. After a few hours they reached out to get Tiggers bottle. That was when they discovered that Twitter's dog had hosed down the bottle and it was attached to 10 pounds of yellow snow. grin

Gotta go now as Fred is trying to hide behind me and Patsy is yelling something about BAD DOG!!!!! I just hope she is yelling at Fred. confused

      July for me.   I have had a couple openers that were pretty thin soup as well.

      Who writes this stuff? Neo nicitonoids are insecticides, not herbicides so far as I know.

      Was nice to hear that the Croix upstream of Stillwater was pretty much normal level, so I fished out of Osceola yesterday. Was an absolute beautiful day to be out! Didn’t get as hot as expected, nice and cloudy, and a nice wind blowing upstream. For the first time in history, I didn’t cast a twister tail on the river. For some reason I was deadset on jointed rapalas and clacking raps. Only caught 1 smallie, 1 walleye, and 1 pike. Lost about 5 fish, 1 of which I suspect was a turtle. Overall experience resulted in one of my better outings of the season!

      Always have had struggles in July.  Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

      You can expect excellant walleye fishing with little competition. Don't be afraid to take a trip over to Elephant lake to chase some slab crappies as well. The feed bag should be on.

      Does anyone know of any good shore fishing spots on the Minnesota River in Carver. Not Carver County, but the city of Carver. The river is pretty high right now, so I don't know if that affects anything. I know this one little ledge you can go to once you are inside the campground, and I have seen evidence of people fishing these, given some got a lure stuck to a log in the water with line still attached. And, what kind of lures should I be using. I wanna go for anything, except maybe catfish or muskies, because I don't have the gear for those. I did see a post the other day about shore fishing for White Bass on the Minnesota in Mankato, so would something like that be good for me? I guess my one question would be, let's say I am trying to jig with a soft plastic, how do I "avoid" the current? Thanks for any tips anyone can give me! If not in Carver, than in the nearby area, like Chaska, Jordan, etc.
