Just Checking In...

Hey everyone, just checking in. Due to the economy and other unforseen circumstances my position at my previous job was terminated a week or so ago so I will have limited computer access for a while but I will check in from time to time from here on out!! With that said I did get to spend about 4 days up at the NW Angle fishing last week which was pretty awesome!! Fishing was good until the big wind hit last Sat! Then things slowed up a bit. Anyway, take care everyone and don't hesitate to flag down the ol' yellow SnoBear if you see me out on the big pond! NAMA

Sorry to hear about the job.

Hopefully a week on the big pond made things a little easier.

NAMA,Bad news! Seems to be hitting everwhere! Was wondering why you didn't email back when I sent you a note on a little fishing report I went on. So what's the plan up there? Any thing at the Cat? Or maybe a little pay to play out of your rig like Sr,'s doing until something comes up? Leech~~

Bummer James, I'd heard the big P had done some cutting thru the engineer and office ranks and had hoped no one I knew was involved. Good luck to you in future endeavors.. Hopefully you'll get a good job somewheres half local so you can stay here on the best pond in the state of Mn.!!

Regards...Norm

Wow Jim! Long time no hear! I have been thinking about calling you to set up another outing this winter. I thought maybe you had dropped off the face of the earth or something. Good to hear you still have the Fox , wasn't sure if you may have had to give it up after you set back last spring. keep in touch I am definitely up for another trip! Maybe you will let me pay for the gas this time! Leech~~

Just got back from the first trip up north for the season. We broke trail up there on Friday as the black stake trail didn't get put it till yesterday. Took our time and checked the ice all the way up and made it to Little Oak with no problems. Fishing was slow all weekend but did manage to catch a nice 25 incher on Saturday morning. Fished a little on the way back this morning but still pretty slow. Heading back up on Christmas day to give it a try agian!

Jim, nice to hear your out and running around. Was there any bare ice spots and did you put those ice scratchers you were thinking about on the Bear? Any openings up there this year? smile

There were some bare spots here and there on the way,not alot of snow yet but sounds like that's going to change in the next day or two here with this storm moving in. The ice is good and flat for the most part though so it was smooth sailing!

That ones mine! She's the only yellow one they ever made. They experimented with a couple different colors early on but stuck to white for production. I like it but I sure can't get away with anything driving the only yellow one out there!

      I will be, but I'm going to be sad since all the perfect hunting weather over the last three days rolls out just in time for opener 🤦‍♂️

      Yes that is correct. Try the BWCA forum. Cliff

      Water temp is 67 degrees in Stillwater this morning.  You can find the water temp from the following website.  Hopefully it's ok to post it.    https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=05341550

      I apologize for bumping this old topic, but I have done quite a bit of research on this, so I want to share my experience. We have one, but it is not the most heavily used piece of furniture in the house. It's in the study, so that one of us can be reading while the other is on the Internet or doing desk work, i.e., we can still be in the same room for conversation. Although it's one of the less expensive models, it is wonderfully comfortable.

      The main price differences are due to the amount of padding from one model to another, and the grade of leather in which you choose to have it finished. Also, some have attached headrests or headrest pillows. Unless the manufacturing policy has changed, some (all?) models are also available in microfiber cloth upholstery rather than leather.

      One of the main advantages of the product line is that most of the models come in a choice of sizes, so that it's possible to match the model to the size of the person most likely to be using it. For example, the Diplomat, Consul, and Ambassador--still the least expensive models, I think--are all the same shape and have the same stitch pattern on the upholstery but are different sizes of the same chair for different sizes of bodies. . . . If multiple people will be sharing a single chair, however, it is generally best to pick the size appropriate to the largest person, i.e., largest basic body frame size. My wife is petite but still quite comfortable using the larger Ambassador.

      If searching online, Stressless is the U.S. product marketing name, but also look for "Ekornes" (Eh-kor-ness), the name of the Norwegian manufacturer. They do have occasional national sales, but not on any predictable schedule, or at least none whose timing I've been able to figure out.

      We bought our chair from Amazon https://10restbest.com/best-zero-gravity-chair the online name of a furniture store in central Massachusetts. I usually try to "shop local" and would have been glad to buy it from a local furniture store with whom we'd done business for years, but they would charge a $65 fee to transport it three miles to our house, whereas the place in Massachusetts offered free delivery. On YouTube there are a lot of interesting videos on this topic, I will share with you, one of them, hope this will help someone. Good luck

      History_Geek, I'm guessing the Vermilion area your referencing is the Vermilion by Hasting Minnesota/Wisconsin border area, this page is regards to Vermilion in northern Minnesota, approx. 200 miles north of that area your requesting info on. I have never seen a cat fish up here, they might be here I just have never seen one here. just saying. Good luck keep searching someone on FM will help with your ?.

      Who's all going out on Saturday for the real opener?  Good rain and cooler temps have arrived.
    • leech~~
      Yeah, they are talking about Muskrats, not sewer Rats!  But Welcome to the forum.  😅 Have you checked out the Trolling thread? 😉
