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.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
