You may get a hoot out of this?

I gave a presentation last night in Wahpeton ND to the Red River Sportsman's Club, a kids ice fishing clinic.

At the end I did a pop quiz kinda deal. Asking questions about what I had talked about, then gave out a lure or something cool like Millennium Lures and Bass Candy soft baits from my grab bag of fishing goodies.

I had asked about 20-30 questions but I was starting to run out of good questions.

So I asked, "Ah....What is my nick name?" I had introduced myself as Ed "Backwater Eddy" Carlson at the beginning of the evening.

One young man, about 7 or 8, jumped up waving his hand like crazy, jumping up and down just having a cow, certain he had it pegged.

Me-Me-Me-Me!!!!!!

Ok, what's my nick name?

He said "I know...It's..."Backwater Idiot".

I said, "Well...OK, That's close enough for me" I gave him his lure..the crowd went crazy laughing.

Kids...ya got to love um Eh!

Funny stuff- sounds like the sort of thing I would have said when I was a snot-nosed little spud.

By the way, good to see you're still posting on here, Ed. I was starting to wonder if the owls got ya the other night.

Ya, them whatever they were got closer, and closer, more of them. A heard of Hooters, and creamers, what a commotion. About 10:00 I packed it up.

Get this Scoot, until last night I had not realized I lost my favorite rod/reel combo. My Boron sumo walleye stick, the 36" custom.

OH..#$%t... frown.gif

Went back after the Sportsman's Club meeting last night and with the aid of a flashlight I spotted the reflective orange tape shinning on the rod tip.

Lucky I put it there, I think I may have missed it without it. It had fallen in the brush on the way up that hill.

Felt pretty darn happy when I located it!

Uf-Da!

I bet you would have been a crabby boy without it, eh? Glad you found it. When I lose stuff, I usually lose it for good. Either you're luckier or smarter (or both) than me.

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
