One of those days

Recommended Posts

Eric Wettschreck

Have ya ever had "One of those days?" I just got home from an evening on a prairie pothole. Oddly, we had to wait quite a while at the landing. I think one of the plugs on my motor fouled. (I hope that's the problem) My cranking battery died. My aft running light wouldn't work. My best friend has been fighting off some type of plague type illness and got terribly ill on the drive home. While filleting fish I about amputated my upper body. My dog got a hold of one of my fillets. Yup, it was one of those days.

On the good side of things, Klan boilerguy will be eating fish for lunch tomorrow. So, putting things in perspective, it wasn't all that bad after all. grin.gif After all, I could have been at work. frown.gif

I ripped off my thumbnail.

Oh, and I got in trouble for being too fast at the access, so some guy was going to teach me a lesson by blocking the ramp for 5 minutes because "people need to slow down".

I was thinking the same thing only I hate county music.

Update, I dropped a cylinder I'm fairly sure. #3 has no, none, nada, zippo compression. frown.giffrown.gif Hopefully just a head gasket.

You could quit fishing . Not an option ? GOOD ! Fix the boat , rub a little dirt on the wounds , shake it off and get back in the game ! The weekend is coming and there are fish to be caught ! Summer is finally hear and its fishing season !! Rejoice - celebrate - but take it easy at the landing . We all have days like that but we are forward looking people with short memories . Time to get ready for the next adventure , right ?

At least it was only a bad day, and not a bad week! We had a vacation where all kinds of stuff went wrong from heart attacks, to hooks through fingers, losing cameras, trolling motors and anchors in the lake, puncturing a steel rod through the oil pan on the old "holiday roader". blush.gif Still, a day like that stinks. If that's the worst day you have, it should be a good year, right? grin.gif Hope ya get the motor up and running again soon!

With an attitude like that I do believe your luck will turn around. Im not sure when though. Maybe after you get a new motor for a great price.

This was a story on a blog maintained by the pastor of my church…

Windy but AWESOME day on the lake!

Put my boat in like usual. Tied it to the dock. Parked my truck & trailer. Walked back to the dock just in time to see my boat floating across the lake with no one in it! (The rope hook had somehow come unhooked.) Dude...what am I going to do? I just stood there watching it drift across the lake thinking about all those fish I was now never going to catch.

There was one other boat on the lake and he noticed an unmanned boat floating by which means someone either fell out or someone was stupid enough to not tie their boat to the dock. When he looked back at the dock and saw a man (me) standing there without a boat and on the lake was a boat without a man - it didn't take him long to conclude which scenario was happening here. He was gracious to tow my boat back to the dock.

Cool...now on to fishing - except I tried to turn on my depth finder and it was BROKE!! AHHHHH!!! Now I would be fishing blind - nothing to show me weedlines, structure, depth. Guess I will just have to fish the old fashioned way - AFTER I clean up my entire can of Diet Pepsi that I just spilled!!

Five hours later when I came off the lake and went to get my truck - there was a nice note from the park police. (Some would call it a ticket. I like "note" better.) I forgot to put my parking permit in the window and now I have to go to court and explain. I have the new permit - I just didn't have it in my window!!!

You might say... "Dude, you should have just stayed home. Did you catch anything?"

"Did I catch anything?!!"

What an AWESOME day! And no, I didn't keep any. I like catching them. I like eating them. I don't like cleaning them. Besides, let's put 'em back in the lake to make more so we keep enjoying it!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
