😢😢

Somewhere up there today, he's sitting on the far side of a fishhouse, just past a duct tape line,  saying “shaky, could you put this one in the bucket for me?”

RIP Doc

The time you had a few social drinks and did a live post that you just had a good "flurfy".

The time we set you up in 3 1/2 feet of water and you pounded them.

The time you hooked onto "the thing" you struggled with for 2 1/2 hours before the line broke.

The time Fred turned your grill into yellow ice sculptor.

The time you were using a walker after  surgery and you went a 1/4 mile across the lake to visit  another fisherman, with a drink in your hand.

Through the years a lot fishermen tried to find my houses, some found me.  Of all the ones that found me only you and Doc became my friends. Fred will be 12 next month and is getting old and slow like all of us but to this day he has never eaten a dog biscuit unless it was given to him by Shaky. From anyone else he spits them out.

So many wonderful memories. 😀

God, I miss those times Kelly.  You are a great friend and Doc and I commented so many times how fortunate we were that you took us under your wing.  You probably felt sorry for us and thought we were harmless.  I remember your first year with the press-board houses that you later painted sky blue so they would blend into the horizon, that fire engine red truck you had, sneaky snaky roads with a gatekeeper house smack in the middle, that sneaky off-shoot road right off the Hillman road on the south side of the pressure ridge.  That area witnessed the hottest crappie bite I have ever seen and it went on for months and the crappie Highway.  Doc is reading this right now and chuckling.  Take care my friend, stay healthy and give Freddy a hug from Shaky.

I was back on the ice a week after hip replacement surgery.  My wife wasn’t too happy and threatened to tell the surgeon but I went anyway.  After I graduated from the walker to a cane I decided one morning to take a walk and visit some of Kelly’s customers.  Every house I went to nobody would talk to me.  I was just trying to be sociable and a good neighbor.  When I got back Doc asked me how it went.  I said we had a bunch of rufusses for neighbors that were unsociable and nobody would talk to me.  Doc said, “Don’t you remember rule #1?” “ Kelly has them posted in all his houses”.  “Don’t talk to strangers!”  😀😀😀

You were probably wearing that old air force parka held together by about 3 rolls of duct tape that looked like it had been put on over about 3 decades. 😁

 That was amazing. We sat there for over 2 months the closest houses to shore as everyone drove right on past us to get out deep "where the crappies were".

We had some great times and if I remember right it all started over a frozen doorknob.

You mean my homeless coat with the auger burns😀😀😀.  Yes, a frozen door lock that Jon used some WD-40 to unstick  started it all plus the book about Grandpa Fred, “On the Trail”.  Did you ever get that bottle of Captain Morgan I left with Shorty to give to you?  Maybe he and Marlys had a party.😀😀

Shaky,

 

Very sorry to hear of Doc's passing. I read the adventures of the two of you forever and it always made my day.

Will miss the stories about your two's adventures fishing up on Red.  I'm sure he's park over a mega school of those slab crappies and they're biting.

      I heard but haven't seen personally snow did NOT treat little pine nicely. Big pine had a huge cut out from road river, was staring as I was plowing cabins. I keep hoping the next two days this snow keeps settling and melting because next week when we hit -15 to -20 it'll be making ice quickly.    I'm off for Red Lake Reservation tomorrow (Friday) for a trout fishing trip Saturday. before people say anything let me answer your questions.  1. Season is open on Reservation all year long 2. We have a tribal guide so we can fish the Reservation  3. No we are aren't fishing lower red lake   We will be fishing for rainbows and brooke trout. I'm taking a group up from my church in frazee. should be a fun time.    Sunday if weather isn't bad I'm hoping to get out and we might make first trip out with ranger. Pretty excited to try it out.    Should have reports on Monday.

      1) Yes, mommy Slot fish are dead. But not many 17" are mommies yet.  2) Nets compile with slots limits?  That's the first I ever heard of that. Cool! 👍  🙄

      Finally made it up to Vermilion to ice fish. I saw numerous ATVs and snowmobiles running around out of McKinley Park so I took my snowmobile out. I found 9" of ice just outside the bay. The top 1" was white but the rest was good and dark. There was 3-5" of snow on the ice and there was a lot of slush. There were a couple of fish houses out by Birch Island. Fishing was very good but they were small except for the 20.5" eye in the picture. Couldn't shrink that fish enough to keep it. Taking the permanent out tomorrow for comfort. Good luck fishing and be cautious for ice conditions.

      Being able to witness gill netting sampling first hand via the DNR very few if any fish caught in the net are able to swim again and nets catch all sizes.  With that being said I'm not comparing this to the Red Lake band as I am ignorant on the topic and have zero idea how they harvest their fish.  I've also made previous posts on how lakes have acquired zebra mussels without ever being fished. Is the likelihood of invasion into Red Lake more likely from a sport angler? Of course, but without the exact knowledge of who it was and when we are just pointing fingers at others. Are there slob sport anglers? Yes there are but spending the majority of my adult life working on reservations across the state I can say that there are good and bad people in every ethnic group and one bad one overshadows ten good ones. I do hope for everyone who frequents the lake whether band members or sport anglers that it continues to be a great fishery. A PR pike from 2 years ago C&R on Red

      So a Mommy fish caught and eaten by an angler isn't really dead? You do understand that the Red Lake Band also has slot limits and open and closed seasons don't you?

      PJ Fleck's Gophers vs. Saban's Crimson Tide? Signs point to Minnesota bowl against the gold standard.   It looks like Minnesota remains pegged for the Outback Bowl on New Year’s Day bowl in Tampa, Fla.   ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura saw the Crimson Tide’s fall to 12th, looked ahead and tweeted: “The rankings this week set up a strong possibility that 10-2 Baylor could wind up in the (‘New Year’s Six’ bowls, likely the Cotton) ahead of 10-2 Alabama. Auburn (then goes to the Citrus and Alabama to the Outback Bowl.”   CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has Baylor in the “New Year’s Six” top tier of bowls, as does Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, who slot:  Minnesota vs. Alabama.   How about that wild prospect? The Gophers might draw a dynastic Alabama program.   https://www.twincities.com/2019/12/03/gophers-fall-in-ranking-doesnt-alter-bowl-outlook-but-might-mean-alabama-matchup/
