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 went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      🤣 neighbors don't bow hunt and they might just get a deer iffin a deer happens to run over them.😉   Thanks!!👍

      Is that that little guy at the feeder with the cr*ppy rack?    Your neighbor got the ‘tirdy pointer last weekend with his bow. 😉😝   Good luck Smurfy!

      To the original intent of the post, I fished about 10 days ago and now done. Time to play with guns. Got the home front and cabin pretty much all set up for winter. Next up go get dat turdy pointer.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...
