Where has Slick Steve been?

Anyone hear from him?

Hows the purple foot syndrom going?

Crack in the ankle healing?

Hope all is well.

Tom

I'm here, Tom, just haven't had a lot to add lately frown.gif...heck I haven't been on a lake since the week before Christmas, but that might be changing soon... cool.gif

The purple foot syndrome is getting better, not quite as dark as it used to be, at least... I guess that means that my foot isn't switching football teams? tongue.gif

I got a minor infection shortly after the scars healed up, and that took about 10 days or so to get rid of, but it looks a lot better now, no more oozing, and stuff... tongue.gif Doc thinks it was a reaction to the stitches he put inside, since the x--rays & stuff didn't show it anywhere near the bones or hardware, which was a major relief.

The crack is getting better... put away the crutches last week, and am giving it a try without the walking cast at work for the first time today. Hopefully it'll keep healing at this rate. It's a little stiff, and going down stairs is kind of awkward, but I can walk on a flat surface pretty decent so far. Therapy & exercises are a pain, but the movement is a lot better than it was.

How's the ice in your neck of the woods? I'm thinking of giving it a try this weekend if the weather's decent... maybe me, you & MTNet can get together and tie into a few Crappies or something?

Thanks for checking up, too, nice to know that a guy's got friends, ya know? cool.gif

Speaking of people missing, I haven't seen Ace's input in quite some time. What happened to him?

You picked a cold weekend to hit the ice, Slick. But a good heater, and my shack, we'll be set. You in Tommy?

BigVLover, Ace got banned from FM.

MT, thanks for the info. Why was he banned, if you don't mind me asking? I always liked his input in addition to ther other guides and amateurs on the site.

Yeah, looks like I picked a chilly one to get out there again... but hey, with the heater going, Carhartts & long johns, we'll be fine! cool.gif

My only real concern is how far we'll have to walk, especially if it's cold. Haven't gotten to test out the hardware in cold weather, but it needs to be tried, you know?

Tommy - How's the ice? And is the blue sno-cone out on that Green Lake? And are you in for Sunday morning?

Sunday it is. Chisago? Green? You pick, I'll drive...just not on the n metro ice.

But with this cold weather, your foot will turn back to a beautiful shade of Vikings purple. grin.gif

Thanks for the advice, Gary... I was kind of wondering how it would handle the cold... seems like it does collect a little more than it did before, even in the short times I've been outside without the walking boot on it.

So far so good, though, just a little soreness in the ball of the foot area, mostly from not having been bent very much for so long.

MT.. I'm almost thinking about South Center... if for no other reason than to try someplace new... but let's see what the day brings... grin.gif

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
