URL - Superbowl memory forever

Recommended Posts


Let me tell you guys about what I will always remember about URL. My son and his wife had been up to URL and caught some nice crappies. A few weeks later my son takes the old man up to URL for some crappie fishing. The anticipation was building and building for days ahead of time. We get up there on the last weekend of ice fishing, Apr. 12. As we are standing on the bank with some other fishermen shooting the gab, waiting for our ATV trailer ride out on the lake, I turned to my son and said, well it looks like another good adventure coming up and he turns to me and says, "I feel like I am getting ready to play in the superbowl". And he did too, I could tell. I laughed and laughed and still laugh today when I think about it. That was one of the best outdoor moments I have ever had. It was at URL and URL will always be special for me for that. We did catch a dozen nice crappies and that was fun. We are going back up again this winter and even if we don't catch a fish that will be special too.
I read this on one of the FM threads this winter and offer it again to the young men and old too I guess who commented in Jigglesticks last thread. By Henry David Thoreau "Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after". I printed that out and have it hanging in my office now. I can't wait to sign up on the board at WW. The sooner the better!! Good Fishing.

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.   
      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
