Ok guys Ive had the Flu for 4 days going on 5 at 3pm. I have tried everything that Walgreens recomended and nothing is doing the trick. Im drinking tons of water and Gatorade but I can only hold down some soup and Pudding. Any recomendations? I got to get better so I can make it to Winni Saturday!

What ya need to do is, sit down and put one of your favorite fishing videos into the vcr and press play, have the wife give you a nice relaxing neck or back rub and then grab a bottle of raspberry snapple and sip it real slow, and you will feel like a million bucks!!

P.S.- If ya don't feel any better, at least ya got a neck rub from the wife while watching fishing! grin.gif

Hope ya feel better Northlander.

Big coffee mug, 3+ glugs of brandy, stir in piping hot water, and add ample amounts of honey.

2 of these should put you sound to sleep.

If not, add a benadryl and it will.

Good rest seems like the only cure.

Blackberry Brandy, my Aunt swears by it.

If you drink too much, you'll forget about the flu symptoms... tongue.gif

Get more rest, not much else you can do until it runs it's course.

my family swears by the brandy and honey as well. Has worked for me in the past. I really think you can't go wrong with it.

I concur with the walk-in idea. I had the Y strain of the flu about 7 years ago and it lasted 5 days before I went in to the doctor. You may need antibiotics, and not alcohol. Sure beats the South Beach diet for losing weight though. Good luck.

NL, You sound like you were talking more about stomach flu ("not holding anything down") then influenza flu or viral symptoms. Stomach flu usually resolves within 24-48 hrs, 72 would be long. If you're not holding anything down, I would start having some concerns about dehydration. I would probably see your doctor. If it is more the influenza flu, viral, with the typical body aches, chills, fever, cold symptoms, it is not uncommon to feel crummy for several days. Either way if you don't start feeling better fairly quick, I would see your doc...particularly with the weekend coming up.

Cold Care P.M., It's a Herb Tea For seasonal Conditions. Get it at Super One and it works. Makes you feel better and usually cuts a few days off the Cold/Flu. I use it all the time and believe me it helps. Maybe it's just the fluids but it is soothing and makes me feel better. Get Well and Get Fishing

Thanks guys. If I dont have a handle on this by tomorrow afternoon Im going to call my Doc. Im able to hold some stuff down today. Drank 4 plus liters of Gatorade in the past couple days along with the Alka stuff. Nyquil is just making me groggy and sweaty. A hot Brandy and Honey really sounds good. Ill have to try it.

You know your sick when your dog wont come by you! frown.gif

Steve all you need to do is get better so you can make it up there. Then again twice bakes would probably be good too!

Late entry but.... the best thing you can do to prevent getting the flu is washing your hands and not sharing eating utensils/beer cans/other "fomites" with other people. The virus (over 200 viruses cause gastroenteritis/cold symptoms)is spread in this manner. Usual gastroenteritis (stomach flu) lasts 24-72 hrs in adults. Chicken soup is good for colds/flu because the fluid and salt will prevent dehydration. Otherwise it has to "run its course" as others have suggested. How's the fishing on Shagawa by the way?

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..
