Shorelunch

Nothing better than a shore lunch on LOW . . . especially when the wind isn't howling, it isn't snowing and some type of extra-terrestrial bugs aren't invading.

hoggs222

Hoggs is my nickname (one of many). My last name is Hogetvedt, so nobody liked pronouncing it incorrectly all the time. The 222 part is because 22 was my number in baseball. Kind of a favorite number. I had registered before under (Contact US Regarding This Word), but I forgot that password! So I went with 222.

not_nuf_time

I have three kids, all play travel and high school sports, seven sports in all, so its year round and sometimes two activities at a time. Oh yea, I coached about 90% of them. And I have a wife to share in the Northwest Metro Sports Taxi Co. Hence the name. My name should be "Hauling 24/7" or "Money Tree". confused.gif

Quickstrike

got my name as a kid when fishing with my dad or uncle. it seemed i always hooked the first fish and that's where quickstrike came from. i thought it sounded quite catchy and i've used it for anything needing a nickname ever since.

ddsbyday

People ask me what I do for a job. I used to tell them I do dentistry as a profession. I now tell them that I hunt and fish and leave it at that. Don't get me wrong but as soon as the word dentist is mentioned the conversation turns to teeth,horror stories,personal miserey,and becomes work. I would rather talk about hunting stories at the access after a great day waterfowling than have someone I just met explain to me all the reasons they have only one tooth and ask me how they can make sure they don't lose it. Don't get me wrong I love dentisty and I will answer your questions to the best of my ability but it may have to be after the hunt. DDSBYDAY

Well the only thing that came to me (quick thinkin') was I lived in Duluth at the time so what could I associate with the Lake Superior & fishing??? Captains work on ships and charters on the lake so I ran with that plus my initials! THUS.....Captain B.R.K!!!

Plus I own a 16ft Lund and I am the Captain of that vessel grin.gif

upnorth

Born, raised and lived in Duluth for years, something 42 of them to be precise. Got out of college(2nd time around) in 99 and figured I would have to move to the twin cities to find work and actually wound up moving up north to the Range. Hence I am "up north" grin.gif (can't spell my handle correctly in a post or it gets replaced "with contact us about this word statement")

pig_farmer

I had an interview at a mold shop years ago

And when I met the guys in the shop they played a joke on me by giving me wet limp hand shakes,one guy was nekid under his smock. Another guy (a brother) stood behind the foreman and rubbed his groin. I knew they were jerking my chain. I took the job and on the first day I wore cut off bib overalls and a regulation wife beater.

I walked in and one of 'em said "we got us a pig farmer"

Made some life long friends there.

Ragenald

I am going to sound like a nerd, but here goes...When I was registering for a site years ago I was reading a book on a medieval life and they focused on a peasant named Regenald. The guy basically got the crap kicked out of him his whole life and had no real hope for the future; at the time, I could relate. I just keep using it, because I can never remember a new one when I change it.

I have 2 wonderful children (Hunter-9 and Hailie-5), a good wife, and a 22’ pontoon. Need I say more? Actually all I would need is the kids, the wife, and a fishing pole and it would still be a great day to be alive! smile.gif

walleye_guy18

2 years ago I was into walleye fishing and was 18 thus walleye guy18. little did I know that in a couple of months I would become addicted to musky fishing. I guess I should really change my name to musky freak our something along those lines since I haven't picked up my walleye rod for 2 years, its really a shame that the st. croix just sits in the corner while the big musky rods get to have all the fun

Mine means "Big John" in Spanish. I used to weigh about 265 so the name fit. I've since lost about 65 pounds, but my friends still call me Big John.

      I plan to lake fishing next week too, hope the weather will be nice by that time.
    • Wanderer
      Did you have much for floating weeds or moss in the stretch you were fishing?  I’ve had lots this year, the same as last.  Been enough of a pain I’ve quit fishing it.   Always love the vids!
    • tacklejunkie
      I haven't seen any reports locally this year. The other forums all have updated reports.

      I can’t find varmint loads any where, Any help?

      Here’s a picture of the water...6 feet deep off my dock...very clear right now

      Got out on Fathers day with the Kayak down the Mississippi River for some good ole Smallmouth Bass action. River was low which made a great float and the smallies were hungry! They just couldn't resist the wacky worm once again. We have such an amazing fishery here in MN, glad to call this state home.  Enjoy.     
    • smalljaw
      Great smallmouth photos!  I feel better now.
    • Muskies
      Thanks for sharing...I was lucky enough to grow up on sand bay. As for muskies, I’ve caught a few smaller ones. The picture is of the lake today...it was a nice day but work needed to get done...no fishing

      Getting closer for me. We will be up on 7/25. If you guys see a red Lowe FM 165 (Fishing Machine) w/90HP Merc, that will most likely be me.  We stay at Idlewood so with no CA this year I suspect we will be traveling east a lot. I know by then Black Bay is "supposed" to be done but I manage a few eyes in there this week. I just like fishing that area, I fished it a lot years ago with my dad. There are big pike everywhere so I will hit a few spots that week.  The reef's I like best for eyes are mostly all east.   The way the border looks I don't think Smalljaw will get to see his cabin in CA this year. That really stinks! Years ago I wished for a cabin on an island on Rainy, that is still a fantasy I guess. I wouldn't be too happy if I finally had my cabin and I couldn't visit it.   I am retiring this summer if things line up right. After this trip with my wife I might try to get my dad back up onto Rainy if I can figure it out. He is 83 and in decent shape except a bad back. My mom is our concern, she has dementia and needs watching, so far my dad is her full time caregiver. My dad started taking me to Rainy when I was in my early teens so I owe him. I know there may be better places to fish but Rainy just keeps me coming back.   Muskies, I really enjoy you posting. Oh, have you ever caught a musky on Rainy? I have not that I recall.   Thanks for letting ramble on your thread.   Bill    
    • Wanderer
      @ozzie I’ve been wanting to get on some whiteys for a while and have talked about hitting the chain for some time.  Just might have to try that tip now that I have an honest fishing boat again.   Or let me know if you have an open seat sometime or want to jump in with me. 😁
