Duffman's interesting afternoon hike

Recommended Posts

Duffman

So I've been going on daily hikes for a couple months now, trying to get in some other shape than round. smile I alternate in between 3 and 5 miles every other day, you could call it a walk cause it's on a paved trail, but I wear hiking boots and it goes thru woods and around a sleugh/lake in the south metro, so I call it a hike. wink

So the sun is low on the horizon and right in my eyes yesterday afternoon, and about 50 yds ahead of me something crosses the trail and heads down towards the sleugh. Now I know I'm not going full on crazy just yet in my life, but that was either Sasquatch or a dude in a full Ghillie Suit. So I round the corner on the trail approaching where this thing left the trail, and notice a couple of kids (10-12 yrs old) another 50 yds down the trail and they keep looking back over thier shoulders at me. So my mind is trying to process what exactly is going on, when I now notice the guy in the Ghillie suit is coming out of the willows on a track to intercept me in another twenty feet or so.

I'm rocking out to QOTSA's "You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire" on the headphones, so I'm sorta pumped up and feel some adrenaline start flowing because the two of us are on a collision course in about 10 seconds, my fist starts to form naturally when I notice this person isn't all that big and has a child like gait. I'm pretty sure he didn't see me while wearing the full mask until we were only 5 feet apart. And then he stopped dead in his tracks.

I figured it was a kid trying out his new suit that he probably got for Christmas, but he sure doesn't know how close he came to getting the side of his head caved in. I smiled at him, shook my head and continued on down the trail thinking...."Man, I wish I had a Ghillie suit when I was his age" smile

It was an interesting hike. Remind me to tell you about the racoon who thought he could hide from me by putting his paws over his eyes on another daily hike. wink

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.
