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.

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.

That guy is just plain cool, and I like to think I'm the envy of the neighborhood, like him, even thought I'm not.

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.

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

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")

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.

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.

      Where did all these weeds come from? Makes fishing tough!
    • Muskies
      Finally able to get out. Took my daughter and boyfriend bass fishing for a few hours. Caught 13 and had many tail boils. Neither had caught a bass before so loads of fun. Using poppers, shallow diver crawfish and vibrex spinners. All caught in 4 feet or less casting rocky shorelines. Nothing large with the biggest 2 1/2 lbs. After found a few walleyes hanging out along deep weed lines in 15-18 feet. One 19” and the other 26”. Walleyes are transitioning out to deep water. Also mayfly hatch happened last weekend. Water temp at 68-69 degrees.

      Ely is getting just as bad.
    • Kettle
      Yea the flies are horrific currently up here. Yesterday was really windy so panfishing was tough, out for walleye today

      Back from a week.  Tough fishing for us.  Scratched together enough for a fish meal, but it was hard work.  Tried just about everything between Taylors Island and Fraser Bay.  Huge mayfly hatch in Niles Bay early during the week.  Hit a few northern and some smallmouth.. .  Covered a lot of miles, fished hard, and it just never turned on for us...  Oh well...  Till next time...

      6/2/21     Catching lots of walleyes and bonus smallies on Mille Lacs. On shallow to mid-depth rocks the first few weeks, now deep gravel or mud when it is calm/clear and mid-depth rocks when it is windy and cloudy. Caught several of the elusive slot fish during the open period, kept and ate a few. Catch and release now and remember closed walleye fishing and no live bait July 1-15. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      6/16/21     Catching bass, pike, sunfish, and crappies on west Metro area lakes. Starting to see a few muskies as well. Water temps in the low to upper 70s depending on the lake. Still catching fish in shallow to mid-depth depending on the lake. Good luck and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Congrats!  Bummer that the dead fish was the difference especially if it was healthy and swimming when you entered the bay!  What weight did you have pre deductions and what was your fish/weight breakdown?  Curious what people were catching... Did you fish the same spots on tourney day as you did in prefishing? and if you don't mind sharing did you fish crosslake or make it out to whitefish?  Sorry for the questions but I always am interested on the where, how, and how many in this tourney but never stick around for the long drawn out awards handout...

      Got back yesterday.  Found some really nice bass and a lot of them, both large and small mouth in the 15"-17" range.  Found a couple of walleye, 14" and 15".  Had a great time as usual and the weather was calm for much of the time we were there.  Had most success with slip bobber and leeches/crawlers.

      Headed up this afternoon for a solo weekend. Throwing for Musky but might pull some cranks or spinners and see what happens.
