The one that got away...

Perhaps I should have told this story a while back…maybe now works fine. As many of you know my wife and I were expecting our first child together early last winter. Have to admit at first I was not too thrilled considering we have a seven year old handful in the family already. As the due date grew closer I accepted that I was going to be a new daddy and bring my first little fisherman into the world shortly. Tragically on Friday the 13th of October at about 1:30am my wife suffered an abruption and started bleeding to death internally. This caused a separation between the uterus and placenta causing our little girl to suffocate to death. I thank the Lord every day my wife is still here but will always wonder why anyone would lose a baby that is perfectly healthy and not even premature. Guess we will get those answers when our own time comes to go to the big, deep, clear lake in the sky full of 65 inch muskies.

I will close this sad story by saying thank you for letting me get this off my chest so we don’t have to talk to much about it in the boat or at the dock this season. See you on the water!

Brian,

So sorry to hear about your loss, bud. I'm sure it must have made for a tough fall and winter. My brother and his wife went through a somewhat similar situation but not quite that scary of an ordeal. The musky Gods will shine down on you this season, I'm sure.

Brian,

Sorry to hear about your bad news. My mom went thru 3 herself after I was brought into this world. That's why I am an only child. Hey, for now, Alliah gets all your hugs and kisses all to herself. Consider yourself lucky to have her and when the time is right she will get a sister or brother. Glad to hear Muskie Girl is OK (give her a hug for me) and thanks for the heads up so we can just talk about fishing and my beloved White Sox on the boat this year (just tryin to make you laugh a little there). Stay strong my man and I will see you in about 10 weeks or so.

Sorry to hear of your loss Brian.Glad to hear your wife is doing good.It is hard to understand the Lord's plan in a situation like this but is all in his hand's. Also it can be a comfort to you to know that little baby is in heaven with the Lord. Our family will keep you and your family in prayer as you deal with this loss. Rick U.

There are no words to express the sorrow of losing a loved one and no way to explain the Lord's master plan.

When I was younger, I used to hate when my mom would say "every thing happens for a reason" because I wanted to know the reason. But you never can explain a mystery. Now as I am older, I try to take it as it comes and I too use "everthing happens for a reason". I hope you and Sam receive all the support you need anytime you need it.

So sorry to hear of your loss. My wife and I lost our first, a little boy, in December of 2005. You'll always question why it had to happen. He was perfectly healthy, my wife just went into premature labor at 21 weeks. It gets easier with time. Now we know that our little daughter, who was born on January 24th, 2007, has an extra little guardian angel looking out for her!

Thankfully your wife is OK!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      65-66 in Norwegian yesterday and 63 in Niles.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!
