Mistermom, I had no idea you had roots out towards Brooten. I grew up in Willmar and my parents live on Games lake (New London) out that way. Small world.

Well, actually my wife is from Brooten. I am real familiar with the area though. I was a camp counselor at Shores of St. Andrew and on our off day we would hang out at Porgies (?) in Spicer. Yes, church camp counselors do hang out in bars. My wife and I are probably going to retire out in Glenwood in about 25 years. I'm ready to go now. Fishing these metro lakes just can't compare.

I'm originally from Cambridge. My Dad's farm is 7 miles NE of there. It is no longer a farm, however, it is now 173 acres of pheasant, deer, grouse, duck, goose, and the occasional bear paradise thanks to CRP and the nations taxpayers.

I saw your thread in the pheasant forum. I know exactly what you mean.
I've had to toss people off my Dad's property a few dozen times every fall. I used to say to them, "Hey do you mind if I come to your place and barbecue in your backyard?" They would come back with, "well I don't have a couple of hundred acres...." That's why the state has WMAs, state forests, and hundreds of thousands of other places for you to hunt.

Sorry! Trespassers bug the hell out of me. Anyway, once I get the little darlings back in school we should hook up and do some outdoor activity before December and parenthood. Later.

Sounds good to me. I have a 14 foot lund while we still have open water and a clam ice house once it get's cold. I fish alone a lot mostly due to proximity (I live in the sticks). Let me know when is a good time for you.

Let's compare schedules in September. I do get some free time during the week once the kids are in school. Weekends get a little booked.

      Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

      I caught a skinny 33 inch walleye out of red lake back during the crappie boom. I will get the photo as it hit a big airplane jig. I want to get a pike jigging.

      City of Virginia is mandating conversions from steam to gas so all the contractors in town are swamped. Couple more local options Martys heating Malmstrom

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉
