Had a great day of fishing yesterday coupled by a sad turn of events. Our dog Bailey had a stroke and is struggling. she's almost 14 and for a choco lab that's a good run. Having trouble walking and is disoriented a bit. I feel her biggest fear is leaving us without a protector as she is pretty needy it seems. tough to watch, making her comfortable, she doesn't appear to be in pain. just tough to go through. love on your pets, they are gone far too soon

So sorry to hear this Ryan. They love us so fiercely it's so hard to see them go.

Sorry to hear this Ryan. It sucks bad to have sick dogs.


It ain't always the deer you're after.

Sorry Ryan, almost nothing worse.

Prayers from further north.

Sorry to hear that Ryan. One of my good buddies just ran over his 5 month old lab yesterday. Family is pretty sick about it.

Paul, I thought about you as we drove through Wabigoon on our annual pilgrimage to Lac Seul last week. All but one day we had good weather and great fishing. Biggest catches were a 40" pike, 29" walleye, 19" smallie and a 70" dad (me). Good times. Well, except for the hook embedded in the back of my hand. We did the push it through and cut off the barb trick. I was really surprised how tough skin is. Pushing it through was actually hard to physically do. Finally I started cutting from the top and then it went through easier. I don't think I am getting an infection which is a minor miracle considering the hook was just in a northern's mouth. If anyone has to do this, it isn't as painful as you would think.


What you do today is important, you are trading a day in the rest of your life for it.

Yep, I've done this too !

Not too bad, as long as nothing is touching bone, then it's a whole other story !

Did you come up through Pigeon River, rather than International Falls ?

Glad you had a great trip, I was just lamenting how slow the spring fishing has been for us this year.

worse part about pushing a hook through can be the geometry of the hook. They don't all (hardly any) have a circular radius, so they don't roll through very nice.


Something clever here.
