It is a great time and goes to a great cause -- increasing a great animal with a beard and feathers. THIS IS NOT AN AD, I am promoting birds.

Nice code, eh?

Oh, yeah, on my way to DL today I saw a bald eagle just off the road eating some dead thing. I wish I had my supid camera -- those media folks should be ready.

Hitman.............SMmmmmmmooooooooooottttthhhhhhhhhhhhh move.

I will agree with ya on it's a good cause and it brings in a lot of money for the protection of the Wild Turkey.

Ps it's a great way to win a lot of cool stuff. I know some people that have gone to them in differnt locations and have wont 1/2 dozen guns and a lot of other cool stuff. Gotta buy those tickets to win stuff though and I know they would drop acouple bills but the reward is great.

I never seem to win much at those deals. About 10 years ago I won an 870 at a local JC deal, but since then not much. Seems like every other year I win throwable seat or lantern.

Anyone need a lantern?

No matter which one you go to -- It is for a good cause.

if you want to talk funny, look at the pummeling hitman gets over on the OT forum for asking about crappies. shocked.gifgrin.gif

Now that's funny!

Or are we all the funny ones for putting up with hitman's humor? laugh.gif

Dead --

It is Turkey Time.

For you fellas and gals that want to get out of the house this is your deal.

It is NOT in Moorhead at the Marriott. It does NOT start at 6 p.m. social hour.

It is a great cause. They are nice people.

I am NOT trying to get anything free.

Please don't throw me in jail. crazy.gifwink.gif

I don't think posting about an event like this one you're mentioning is taboo. If you ever have a question about it, just email fishingMN and ask them. They will let you know quickly if you can put all the info on a post. FishingMN is pro anything outdoors, especially if it can raise money to preserve it.

I actually won something cool. I got $425 cash on a rip the card in half game. The very attractive gal, and that had Nothing to do with my choice cool.gif, talked me into the queen of spades. There were two decks and I won.

I gave her a $20 tip. i am so generous when i am a winner -- which is not very often.

Sweet. I'll use it toward my new Lowrance 336. smirk.gif

Dahitman, I had the 2 of spades on that 450 that you won. It all came out in the end when I hit #210 on the leg band draw and won the NWTF over under 12 guage. One can never have enough guns. I am starting to see more and more turkeys over my way usually on the way to the lake. I hope to see more and more of them. Also hope we have a good spring cause it's gonna be like South Dakota around here with all of the pheasants Iv'e been seeing. I think there is a P. F. banquet coming up soon too.

      My cousin sent me a couple pictures from last week's trip. After the storm, the perch kind of took over the bite and those pictured were all caught on crawlers in 22' of water adjacent to a rock reef . We caught lots of walleyes in this same area. The other picture was take from the Pike River bridge as we were leaving Friday morning. Good Fishing. MarkB 2024 perch.jfif Pike River bridge June 2024.jfif

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April. 
    • Kettle
      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night
    • smurfy
      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
