Stopped at Sportsmans for lunch today & overheard 'em talkin about 107 mph winds Monday night. Went out MN 6 as to see how much damage there was as most is out there. Post Office, Funeral Home, & the Church just a block off Main had some significant damage too.

Only a few small trees in the ditch on CR 35, the damage along Mn 6 disappeared as we got north CR 19 & closer to CR 37 too. Heard that there was quite a bit of damage over by Ballclub & again over on a little lake just east of Deer Lake called McAvity Lake.

Got back from our last trip and between the bugs and the wind it was brutal. I have never seen the skeeters that bad, even the wind didn't keep them away by the cabin. Considering the wind we did OK fishing. Got a dozen walleye and picked up enough nice sunfish for a fish fry. We got the sunnies while trolling for walleye but never tried fishing them. Going back Thursday with the next crew.  Will try walleye and panfish both this trip. Made it to Hayslips Friday but left before the meat raffle started.     :happy1:

Back from the north land. Gunner, it was great meeting up with you. Good visit, no meat but I'm used to not winning. We ended up getting our limit of walleye for five guys and the bonus sunfish I told you about. Got three on Bow and the rest on the other two lakes I told you we were fishing. Good trip except for the hoards of skeeters.     :happy1:

Glenn I used to love catching any northerns.  When I get the Y-bones out of them I like them as much as walleye.  I may have to get back into that.  Sure fun to catch.  I trolled with a 14' boat and a Rapala or a Red Eye.  On the small lake type thing we were on bobbers along the weed edges worked good too.

Good to get together with you too. :cool: Neighbor & I found some hungry fish last night here. I had 3 eyes but 2 went ~ 11 & the other was 17". He had a lot of action too, but only 1 eye  that was a shade small (14.5"). Out early today too, had 3 in no time but they were all younguns. :scratch: Maybe, we could meet again over there sometime soon & have time for a couple of cold 1's.

Plain old red and white daredevil has to to be responsible for more northern catches than any other bait by a wide margin.

I know the Dehns, they took Sis's old fiberglass beast of a paddle boat off our hands. They live on Eggar Rd & usually sell sweet corn as they have a huge garden on a separate lot. She's usually pretty involved with the kitchen at the SL Community Center too, when there's anything very big going on. Seem like good people to me. :cool:
so, while i was up there i did some investigating!!!!!! :happy1: :rotflmao: i had the names to the sand lake township board, so i stopped at the spring lake store. she told me we are in Lake Jessie township.  she went on to say the reason most the sand lake township people had spring lake addresses is due to the U.S. mail service!!! made sense.

NOW.......... :sleazy: i hunted down the Lake Jessie township board members!  :happy1: :happy1: she asked me a question that kinda bothers me though. she asked if out main road going in was a Township road. she said the road she lives on is not and they wont grade it???????????????

Kind of figured that was the deal with the SL TWP people. :scratch: Didn't realize your road was a JL TWP road either & I'm not all that surprised that they don't do much for maintenance on those. :huh:

 Heard there was a LOT of damage over on Little Jessie from Friday's storm when we got the paper today. A lift flipped upside down with a pontoon still on it, quite a few other boats, docks & lifts damaged too. Property damage from all the trees down as well. Knocked out the co-op's substation up by Talmoon too & there's still a bunch without power, Tim said. Word is it was a twister, I know my brother's cell rang just once & really loud just before the weather hit here (~ 11:30). He said it was a Tornado Warning from the Sheriff's dept. Hardly a stick to pick up here!! :crazy:

the other day my brother sent me an email. one of his kids friends that deer hunts with us went up that way to go camping, thiings didnt work out so he asked if he could camp in our yard. we were fine with it.

later on in the day after watching the weather forecast i sent him one back telling him that maybe he should use the cabin cause the weather was sounding nasty.

long story short he was super glad he had that opportunity cause there phones went bazerk too and he said it it was pinpointed right on the cabin area. e did sauy everything was fine at the cabin.

There's 2 or 3 over here on Portage that are even closer to the water. A decent SE wind & a couple probably have waves over the top, in fact.

One of my major projects this past weekend was putting in that new first dock section. The one it replaced was downright dangerous.

Of course I had all kinds of help!! :happy1: :rotflmao:
