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.

      Appreciate it barbel. Any info is good info this time of year. Head up in 4 days. I think all the fisherman are all haunting the woods instead of the water right now. Thanks again

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.
