As some of you are aware, I am likely to be having surgery on a herniated disk in my lower back shortly (I am going for consultation this TUES.), and probably will be having a rather short ice season.
:sad:
I hit a local inland body of water with my step - son this afternoon, figuring my time is short - and we got a few perch and one decent walleye about 25".
It takes a little wrangling to get a 4+Lb. fish to come thru a 6" hole when they're ticked off.
:lol:
#5 glow perch jigging shad rap, 25 FOW - 4:30PM.

:chillin:
It was great to be out and now my step son wants an Arctic Armor suit too.
:D



I sure hope I heal fast - maybe I can still get out again YET!!

Nice fish Robert....Later if ya want to I can get ya set in a chair in my jet sled and I'll just pull you out there? :) Then I can set up the hub and lift it up and over ya ;) You got the will, we can find a way.

Seriously though, good luck with everything and prayers for a speedy recovery.

Good luck with the surgery Robert. The pick of that eye is making me jealous. Guess I'll stick to the big yellow bellies. Shoot me a PM if you have any chances to get out before the surgery.

For those of you that need translation on the above sentence... as I know Robert can read it without any trouble... :D

I see that a blind squirrel can find a nut every once in awhile.




Hmmm
.... although it looks like you probably found it laying around on the ice instead of catching it though!!


Ok... ok... I'll give you credit this time around!!

Do those Artic Armor suits come in cLoWn CoLoR?





So how long is the recovery going to take? :confused:

Maybe some late ice sMeltZs?... or a brownie or whitey or two off the pier this spring?

Here's hoping that things go well with the back!!


Will definitely be in touch!!

Just about everyone here has already said it, but I wanted to add my well wishes also. Nice Fish, a successful surgery, and a speedy recovery. Hopefully you make it back out before last ice.

Thanks to all of you fine folks for the kind words & well wishes.
I am going under the knife at the end of this month, I am officially scheduled with a surgeon.:)
It's kind of a scary thing - but I can't keep popping pills & gimping for the rest of my days...





Here's what those fillets looked like AFTER she spent the night in the trunk and just before my step son took off her pants & jacket....

:lol:

Have fun & be safe!!

Nice eyeball Robert. Best of luck on the surgery, your rehab, and before you know it, you'll be back out there losing large northern again.

Actually, this ain't too bad a time of year to be laid up for a while. Best wishes!
