Muskie entering hole     She came back a while later and was in and out for the last hour of my last sit of the season     Pike sampling a decoy  

I got a DL Smithing spear this weekend. 

Thanks MJ - you too.   I finally got a hole cut yesterday.  No luck while exploring a new lake but at least it got the blood flowing again.   Plus I got to swim the last two Grumpy

Actually spent the vast majority of the day sitting across the kitchen table from my dad just chatting, sipping coffee, and watching the rain come and go, then took him out for dinner and a beverage. And while the words "wow, this day really got away from us" were said, it was anything but a waste of a day.

Now I'm sitting "finning" a batch of grumpy's (thanks to Dealer for giving me the name) that have been on the table for a month being ignored.

Sounds like a good day. I have to be in southern Illinois tomorrow night so I guess i'll have to head out in the morning.

I worked on the big truck most of the day.

Just donated these decoys to the St. Francis American Legion. They are both good swimmers. The red/white is wicked slow with a nice wide turn. Green/white is a little quicker and with the large metal tail can be tuned to swim big or small, or left straight to swim pendulum style.

American Legion posts and VFW's are falling like bowling pins lately. St Francis is holding on by the skin of their teath. They are holding a Bojia feed and silent auction next Saturday. So if anyone is in the area, there may be deal to be had. All proceeds go directly to support the legion and the community charities and scholarships they work with.

My dad runs the Horseshoe club there, so I also made and donated a diamond willow and brass picking hook as well. With some minor effort it could be converted to a gaff hook.

The team as a whole took 7th over all and Jounior Varsity team is going back for the next round. My son did Ok but didn't qualify for the next round. He is shooting a summer youth league to practice for the school league next year.

There were almost 4000 kids signed up and shooting for the state qualification and it was a great experience to witness.

Another rainy Saturday. Cutting fins for a few decoys. Waiting for things to dry out a little bit. Going to see if I can buy my decoys back later this afternoon. wink

Unless someone else outbids me.

I'm thinking it's getting close to time to start laying out the bases and skis for a fish house. If it's going to get finished I will need to get it started soon.

Well I didn't have to worry about being out bid. It seems they were misplaced confused

Everyone there is hopping they got misplaced and are mixed into the "support our troops" auction and golf tourney next weekend. I hope that's the case, cause then it's still going to a good cause. If they got pocketed I would be very upset.

Hopefully they are found and someone wasn't low enough to steal from a charity event

I am hoping that's not the case. I still spent a hundred bucks , I just picked up some rods I didn't necessarily need instead of trading my donated items for cash. In the end it would just mean 2 less decoys to get ready for the darkhouse booth at the hard water show. And another trip over there next Saturday to see if they show up.

I will be a lot more selective on what groups I donate items to in the future smirk
