    28 degrees is lowest temp in the next 9 days. Gonna have to check the wind forecast, might have to cast the river one night here soon to keep from going stir crazy. Can only watch so many youtube videos.

    Figured it would happen Seen people fishing a November the 16th , And on the way back from deer camp, The Bay was frozen close to shore in spots . Just shows how much I love Spending shanty time at the zoo. But there is plenty of ICE at Lake in the woods. Might stay there for the rest of the season if I can find a job doing some maintenance on fishing shacks Or build a few brand new ones. I can build a million dollar house, I can build one sweet Fishing shack. Can't wait to hit the ice at Lake of the woods, Gonna leave their in fish my way back to Michigan. But there is no place like home, Love being part of the elite whale hunters . Good luck be safe and hook them in lips on a gold True Turn

    I've watched that a few times on here, and it always brings a smile to my face......lol....great bunch of people.....not a care, just to have a good time.......some of us pass on things to our kids.....my kids will always go to my "morel spots", long after i'm gone.....and like my son in law said yesterday, on our way up to caseville..."i have to get out more, do things like you do, ice fish, prospect for gold, take the kids out more"...so even if we don't take them, we set the best example, that living life is about living it....When i started plans for alaska, a few years ago, someone said to me."aren't you afraid of the grizzlies??", i said, "hell no, i'm more afraid of sitting on the couch and drinking coffee and wait for death to take me, the couch is a lot more deadly than any grizzly....it's killed millions"......lol....
