2nd bass caught today and this year.

Looked like it cracked 20", and she was plump.  5 - 5 1/2 lbs?

 Feels good to be casting lures again.

Ha! Tough getting those selfie pics in a canoe. And I didn't expect it to be so big online.

But yea, "In your face!"

Probably head back there later in the week to fill up the Otter sled again with more Green goodies. Can't be beat! Planked on the grill isn't bad either, but you need to constantly baste meat.

Isn't bass season closed now?  Unless you're fishing a continuous pool on the river...

Don't worry I don't keep bass, only released after I wore her out with quite the 2lb test battle 😆 Gills and crappies taste much better ...

Keeping it would be called poaching at the moment.

      The University of Washington's projection that was in the link updates every four days with an update later on today. That is the model the federal government is using. Here is a link talking about the one in MN.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/bringmethenews.com/.amp/minnesota-news/coronavirus-big-differences-in-minnesota-model-national-model

      good common sense things too!!!!  good share Tom!!   
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for sharing the link.  Would be nice if they showed projection to date vs real to provide some insight into the ability to project.
    • Wanderer
      Thanks for the reminder of which model Walz is watching.  I’ll look it up.  The one I posted the link to was from the University of Washington.  I don’t get to see all of Walz’s press conferences but catch them if I can.  I’m on the weekly MDH call, along with a few others several days per week, and in multiple meetings per day.   Drinking from a fire hose has taken on a whole new meaning.   By the way, I’m posting on my lunch break from cutting down some trees today.  I’m wearing the appropriate PPE.
    • Kettle
      Walz is basing his data off of the Malcolm model which was derived from by biostatistitions here in MN. He believes our peak is Early May-Early June.  I don't think fishing opener will be canceled but recommendations for less travel will probably be stated.

      I understand the concern about the disease and live with a very concerned wife, one that hasn't seen her mother in over a month, one who won't leave our homestead and sends me out to get our perishable groceries once a week. I then come home and put my clothes worn into the wash and then take a shower. I am fortunate that I live more than four miles from town and have the acreage that can wander on and be outside but to maintain my mental health I also need that joy of fishing so will carefully chose where and when I do so. I have enough equipment to fish for a very long time without having to go to a store for anything but fuel. I hope there is no delay in the opener, it can be done with very little contact of others if one plans ahead and pays attention. I also know that I am fortunate in this because I have achieved over my 60 years, a paid for home, no debts and a diligent saving habit. We all have no choice but to weather the storm, how we come out of it in the end is going to be the big unanswerable question. Forced further shut downs in my opinion will only create a heightened level of civil unrest an more resistance. The resorts may be open but when restaurants, cafes and their own dining facilities shut down, how can they host anyone, Not all of them have self contained cabins and rooms.

      I had plans to fish Leech this year in opener as my sister purchased a cabin last year there.  At this point I probably will not go on opener, unless things dramatically change in the next month.     I am not so scared for myself, but wish not to pass it in to someone else.  I still work outside of home everyday so I may be more exposed than some.  I try to limit myself to the gas station and grocery store for public places.  I am sure I would certainly know if I got the virus with having a smokers lungs, and being over weight.  But hopefully my 42 year old body can still handle it?   My biggest fear at this point is, we are allowing our day to day lives to be controlled by our governments.  Not just by their suggestions and best practices, but by executive orders with the penalty of the law.  We may be treading in dangerous territory.  All in our passive nature to protect each other.   We need to continue to be very careful of our individual impacts on others by being responsible humans.  By making a personal sacrifice we can help others, that is the responsible thing to do.  But we can't stop being the people we are, by fearing our mortality and giving up our rights and freedoms.    Opener is a small sacrifice for me, as is missing Rainy River, as would be missing turkey season if things would change, or a vacation in the future.  All small sacrifice by themselves, that I would be willing to voluntarily do based on the information provided me.  I feel, as individuals, we are more than capable of making those decisions wisely given the appropriate truthful information.  We don't need an entity to tell us what we can or can't do.   stay safe everyone.
