Fisherman wounded in combat...


Tonka Boy

Recommended Posts

This past Saturday AM my bro-in-law, Sgt. Jeremy Wolfsteller was struck by an insergent bullet while fighting in Iraq. 11 US soldiers died, and 6 others were wounded that day in Tal Afar. After about 9 hours of surgery Jeremy was stabilized enough to transport to Germany where he could be treated better. We're still getting conflicting reports, though we have learned he was struck in the hip shattering it, as well as hitting his spinal cord, puncturing his spleen and lung, and lodging in his arm pit.

At this point we are optomistic that he will survive his injuries, however we don't know if he will be paralyzed or not. They are running further tests today and hopefully will have good news in the near future.

My prayers go out to "Wolfy" that he can once again skate and hold that fishing rod that he's found a new love for. I'll be by your side the whole way bud...after all you are not only my bro, you are one of my best friends!

Best of luck, "Wolfy" gave great service to this wonderful country. It's people like him that let us wake up being free every morning. Thank you for protecting freedom, even though thank you is not enough....

I just want to offer my support with good wishes and prayers for Jeremy and his family. I hope that he fully recovers and that his sacrifice for our freedoms, and the freedom of others, is never taken for granted, and is remembered and appreciated by those of us who are not there, and do not have family and friends serving at this time. God Bless You Jeremy, and Thank You.

Thanks all!!

Jeremy is still on life support, but we did finally get one doctor to say he expects a full recovery amongst all the bad news lately. He's not out of the woods yet, but all your prayers and thoughts are a big help. grin.gif

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Welcome to the forum. Buying clothing and gear for outdoor activities is part of the fun! 🙂

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
