Thank you for posting. I always think about stopping to read these for some entertainment. About what I expected!

We stopped and read them once.  I know of another person around here that just can’t seem to find peace.

Bummer for them.

Maybe if they would just deliver his mail... all would be good in the world.  ;)

It sounds as though they have bigger issues than just mail delivery. "Trespassing could result in injury" the mail person is reading this and they are thinking they don't pay me enough to do this delivery.

I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

I took those pictures probably seven or eight years ago. If I remember correctly I was heading up north solo, and decided like many others that I'd never fully read the spectacle and would capture it for posterity. I've never met or seen the guy, but I'm sure it would be an interesting time if you drank a few cold ones together.

Speaking of Cotton, does anyone have a report on the El Toro lounge? I've always meant to stop in there but have yet to do so.

I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

I have a cabin on a lake just outside of Cotton, there’s many good fishing lakes in the area, especially the one I’m on. I won’t say the name because I don’t want it bombarded. This fall it was routine catching 40-50 11”-13” crappies every afternoon. Would only keep a few for a meal, but talk about fun. As for the El Toro, it’s the typical “dive” bar and I don’t mean that as a negative at all, real people that if you needed something they’re more than willing to help. Food is from Wilbert cafe in the same building and is good home cooked eats.

All I know about Cotton is playing basketball on that tiny floor. We used to simulate games on a shorten floor and anyone who turned the ball over due to a mistake on boundaries ran laps...  No matter how much better your team was the games were always close.  The fans were hilarious also.  They never intervened but didn't get out of the way either.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!
    • delcecchi
      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
