A little makeup


Recommended Posts

Kelly...I only wish two things of last night,

1. I was there when it happened...
2. You were there when it happened...(the spin would be even better)

Little Mikey seemed to dip a little two far into the ol' bottomless twelve pack starting at breakfast time and by "prime time" he needed to take a body mandated "nap". So we made sure we put him in the top bunk with the themostat on 90 and we started fishing. As the fishing slowed at around 8:00, Paul and I got the idea to have the boys "doll" up Mikey for the ride home (we didn't expect movement till morning).

At 9:00 the word came on the radio that the makeover was complete and we should check him out, so we walk over as the finishing touches were being applied...red moustache, red goutee, freckles, earrings, and several other addornments (that can only be mentioned at W.W.) applied to his face. To top it off minnows in the mouth, nose, ears, packs of smokes and underwear were added. Feeling sorry for the minnows in the shorts Chad decided they needed a little water...so a bottle of water was added from the knees to the belt line. (It only took Paul 3 hours to convince Mikey that he really didn't wet his pants).Pictures were taken of this fine peice of art...and everyone went back to fishing vowing to keep a straight face when he woke up.

Well, that happened sooner than later, within 15 minutes the report "dead man walking" came over the radio. Seems Mikey wanted to go in to have a "couple" more beers and some pizza, so of course everyone obliged. In to the W.W. they stroll with 25 guys with there jaws hanging looking at Mikey. He sits down wondering whats going on when the bartender tells him he has something on his face. So off to the bathroom he stumbles with a round of applause from the bar. Kelly as you would say "good plan, poor execution". He only managed to get about half of it off. After finishing up at the bar we tucked him as we were off early in the A.M.. OOPs, Mikey still has last nights face on... oh well, off we go, the ladies at the gas station in Grand Rapids really liked it and OOPS, again, Mikey left his keys in my truck. I had to get Paul home first so he could start plowing so Mikey had to go in my office to let my partner and secretary see him first hand (I don't think the pictures will have the same impact now).

All in all another typical and succesful trip to URL.

Good Luck! Rip some Lips!

I also would like to see the pictures. Make sure that you get doubles so Paul gets a set.

      Thanks for sharing this exciting career opportunity with Orvis in the Minneapolis area. It's great to see companies looking for passionate individuals to join their team, especially in the world of fly fishing.

      Shocking, I know.  And what may be more surprising is that one need not head westward to find them either.  There is a thriving, reproducing population of them right here in Central MN.

      Cosmo and I took the afternoon off and went pheasant hunting in the fresh snow yesterday.  Tried some new spots that I have never hunted before.  Raised 28 total.  I got a double at the second spot.  Two roosters flushed simultaneously and I dropped both of them.  The first one one fell dead but the second one went down as a cripple.  After retrieving the dead one, I went over to where the second one went down and after some good dog work, Cosmo came out of a patch of grass with it.  Then the final spot produced another rooster for a December limit.  Hunting after a fresh snow is quite often my most productive and enjoyable hunt of the entire season.

      Caught some crappies on the north end of Osakis on Nov 15th. Pulled from 25-27 feet. All laid on their side in the live well. All kept but one.

      On the south end...   Ice continues to form and make progress on Lake of the Woods.  With that being said, it is going to take some time before it is safe and fish houses are out.  Resort ice guides have been out checking ice thickness, flying drones over the ice and basically staying on top of current conditions.   Back bays are locked up and there is some spearing for pike that has been happening.  Ice conditions even in back bays vary, so for safety, please work through resorts and outfitters.   Most of Big Traverse Bay is ice covered.  There are still patches of open water, some cracks that have opened up, etc.  This is typical for this time of year and it will be a bit yet before most can give the green light.     Lake of the Woods is big and there are many areas of the lake resorts and outfitters go out on.  Each business will be monitoring ice conditions in their area and make informed decisions when it is allowed to access the ice through their ice access and what weight limits will be allowed. Resorts and outfitters have started marking trails on the ice in bays and close to shore.  When it is time to get out on the ice, we encourage working through resorts and outfitters and staying on marked trails for safety. On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is ice covered.  Local resorts and ice guides are monitoring ice conditions in areas of the river they offer ice fishing.  As you have read in this report previously, work through a resort or outfitter for safety reasons.      Up at the NW Angle...  The Angle is ice covered (as a whole).  Outfitters and ice guides have been marking ice trails.  The ice roads and trails are not open yet, but much of the ice has frozen smooth and is coming along very nicely. There are always areas throughout the winter where there is current up at the Angle so it is important to stay on the marked trails, both when they open up and throughout the ice fishing season, which goes through March, Mother Nature dependent on course.
