Capt. Quicksteel

Recommended Posts

OK, I've waited until January 6th and nothing! When are we going to start to talk about this year's excursion? I'm ready to start worrying about water levels and boat landings etc.

That looks like the boat that Mrs Boilerguy hooked into last year laugh

This is on MY TO DO EVERY YEAR LIST from now on.

This is a blast from building snowmen in the boat to catching the preistoric monsters of the deep. I got on the calender

Yes, last year the snow in the boat in the morning was not cool.

Temps were on the cold side also.

I have been up the last 4-5 years and I think this year, I am going to wait a couple weeks later for nicer, more enjoyable temps. Fishing is still good and not sitting in the cold and maybe snow does not thrill me.

The Sturg are a blast.

Totally cannot wait for the '12 SE. This year is going to be EPIC. Been going up the weekend after tax day every year for the past 5yrs. If it ain't broke, ...

Last year 42 of us came up in our group. It's not really a traveling trophy but it's a take home plaque. I got them made in Rochester for $22 for each 5x7 (pictured), and $17 for each 4x6. Last year plaques were given to the top 6 fish (all were over 60"). I think there were 25-30 guys that wanted in on these plaques and I charged them $5 each.

Gold, Silver, Bronze

Yes Harvey Lee the battle was epic but the lund won.

I dont know about that and you would have to ask MRS. boilerguy about that as she tells a different stroy and how the monster lund was a tough battle and finally in the end yes the lund did win overall and it was released to fight another day grin

I know Mrs.B didnt have much fight left in her by the end of that wrestling match laugh but she still managed to make snowmen on the boat..

Darn anchor ropes!!

Lol.

I once played the Moby Richard of Sturgeon in the Mississippi River for 45 minutes before I realized I was hooked on an Underwater cable.

FishinLogician and I hope to make the Sturgeon Excursion this year for the 1st time since the inaugural event lo those many years ago.

I like the idea of a Walleye/Sturgeon Double Header.

We may end up trying to go during the week instead of the weekend.

I like the plaques. Nice touch.

Hey, it was catch and release. I had to let the boat go! Thems the rules,boys. Otherwise I would have had that baby landed within a few more minutes.

The struggle sure helped combat the cold.

And you must admit, I made an awesome snowman wink Luckily, Gordie was on hand to supply a few things needed to build the little Mr. Bill-looking guy, but strangely enough had no carrots for noses in his tackle box. That's why he ended up with a washer on his face and looked like he was yelling, "Ohhhh noooo."

April 19-22nd.

Schusters Resort

or

WigWam

Both have special HSO pricing.

It will be a busy weekend, as another group has their Sturgeon Run the same weekend.

Team South Central/West Redneck is booked at Schusters.

I have 2 questions. First of all, is there some kind of event at wherever the headquarters are? Last year we fished and saw all the boats but didn't really get to talk to anyone. Also, how is date set? Is it opener or are we going by DTRO's horoscope or something like that?

The dates are set by a combanation of different things.

Take the date of Dtros birthday, divide by the weight of my dogs last pile of puke, add the number of times Bunt says "Nice", and subtract the number of pictures of Mrs. Boilerman catching a lund last year........take the final number, mark the calander, take that calander, throw it in the trash, and Rick tells us when the date is set. It's a complicated process be we're getting better at it.

HQ is where ever all the HSO'ers meet up. Team SW/SC Redneck (myself, Mrs boilerman, Bunt, Gordie, Archerysniper) will be at Schuesters. Look for the guys with the hats and stop by for a howdy.

      I retired 2½ years ago.  My wife finally agreed to move up north after she retires the end of 2021.  When she retires there is nothing that would keep us in the cities.  Blaine has been very peaceful over these turbulent times, but I have a lot of buckshot for my three 12ga shotguns just to be safe.  Anywhere from Barnum to Soudan would be fine for us (easy day trip to Vermilion).  Would go as far west as Grand Rapids.  Would love to live on Vermilion but the prices are just too high now.  Best of luck to you.

      How far north?????🤔😅
    • leech~~
      Wife just retired. I retire next May. Hope to follow you north before the next round of riots and lotting in Brooklyn Center! 👍

      Is it a hard stall like too much pressure that kills it or does it just die out?   The hard stall would most likely be caused by your pump locking up.  A die out would be fuel or maybe even spark, although less likely.   What pressure washer?
    • JerkinLips
      Repairing our house in Blaine for sale in the next 2 years so we can move up north.  Duck hunting, fall fishing, and sighting rifles in next week.  Winterizing our place in Soudan also.  Been a great fall for these projects.

      I have a power washer that runs for a few minutes and then stalls out.  Can't restart it for hours.  The shop said it was a carb and so I replaced that and it still happens.  I thought it may be a problem with the vent in the gas tank but left the cap loose and it still happened.    Any ideas?   Thanks for your time.   Tom

      If I had more time I’d fish between hunting outings but I have to be thankful to have any hunting time right now.  And believe me I slip it in whenever I can.  November will probably be better on that front but I need to keep working when there’s work to do being I’m seasonal now.   Granddaughters birthday today and then some home chores before getting back to work on Sunday till the job is done.   With the calendar migrating divers moving through the state right now I sure feel the urge to be out there!  I guess I’ll have to wait until the late season migration but it could be good!

      My brother and dad were on Rice lake by Eden Valley Tuesday. They got one 23 inch walleye and a northern. All returned for the next angler.

      I got a 3 day weekend (very rare); so today after my annual physical I spent the afternoon cutting Chinese Elms in the CRP. Was great temperature for it. Probably put boat away this weekend as most landings have docks pulled. Just don’t feel like battling the loading process. Do some deer scouting and maybe clean up the inlaws lawn at the lake. Will try to get the dog in the grass for a rooster also.
