Moral Dilemma (Codeman, Ninetoe...Kelly)

Recommended Posts

Polar Bear

Life is difficult. Tonight on the golf course I made $45... the problem is; my concience is bothering me.

You see, just as my opponent was lining up a 3 foot putt I casually mentioned to him how I had recieved a 1200 dollar fine from the DNR this past January while relieving my bladder on the ice of Upper Red while ice fishing. He was concentrating so hard on the putt that I wasn't sure he even heard me until I nailed him with the punchline just as he was beginning his stroke.

He pulled the putt 8 inches left of the cup because he was laughing so hard. My team won the tourney and my share was $45.

Here's the problem: Should I;

(A) Give Codeman a cut of the prize money because it was his story in the first place?

(B) Give Ninetoe a cut because he told me the story and caught me hook, line and sinker ?

© Give Kelly a cut because he introduced me to you guys?

or (D)... Keep the cash and say the heck with all of you ?

Decisions, decisions...decisions... wink.gif

Polar Bear, Can you explain the joke a little bit more for us. I might like to use this one on Tuesday when all of the coaches go on our annual golf tourney. I would keep the money if I were you. Maybe buy them a drink next winter when you are fishing up there. Thanks. Kooba

Kooba , Polar Bear would have to e mail you. Its not postable smile.gif.

Polar Bear , you could buy me a case of Hamms! That way you would still have $40.00 left to divvy up! smile.gif

You could buy Kelly an air bag for his flying saucer truck , so when bumpers4Me runs into him he wont get hurt wink.gif!!!!!!

CodeMan could use a sun lamp for when he's around Iceman!!

Well just a suggestion, you probably already spent it in the clubhouse.

Keep in mind that NINETOE'S fine only came to $5 so it wouldn't hurt my feelings if you reimbursed him his fine with the case of Hamms.

As far as the air bag goes for Kelly, I would seriously consider opting for the full air bag suit to be worn by him any time he enters the West Wind. I envision one of the latest model space suits worn by the space shuttle astronauts. One of these bad boys should protect him on the ice, in his truck or when somebody loses their keys at the bar.

Another option for the $45 would be to donate it to the Upper Red Lake Weekend Widow's Society. I know there are plenty of women out there that qualify for benefits once the ice forms on the big pond.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
