If you think the river's low now...

Recommended Posts

My dad listened to Ed Shultz's (the former conservative, former Republican, former non-sell out) program a while ago and an NDSU grad was on talking about his dissertation work. While working on his PhD, this fella wrote a sort of "history of the Red River" manuscript. Sounded interesting! While we think the river's really low right now, he said that in the decade of the 1940's, the Red had no flow for approximately 1000 days. These weren't consecutive days, but spread out across that decade. No flow- imagine what that did to the fishery for the years to follow that. I'd imagine a mess of fish died due to low oxygen and low forage during that decade.

I'll probably ruffle some tailfeathers with that first sentence, but disregard that- that's just my bias and loud mouth. Hard to believe the river was that low for that long- hope it doesn't ever happen again in our lifetime.

Scoot -

I know this may belong on the political board, but I've noticed Ed's political bent has switched sides too.

What happened? Just curious.

Don't know. My guess is that he didn't see a nitche for himself as a conservative talk show host- too many of them around already. So, being an opportunist, he jumped ship in hopes of becoming big. He may have been successful too as he recently inked a national program.
However, this doesn't say anything positive to me about his character and integrity.
Just my opinion.

Thanks Scoot -

I used to listen to Ed quite a bit, but I am down in the cities during the week most of the time. I tuned into him a few weeks ago when I was home, and I wondered if it was the same guy, LOL.

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
