Yes, it's impossible to hold conversations on Tony's new blog but right when I'm about to block the site he posts "ended up dropping $1600+ and my new roll is at $10,400". But enough about Tony...... I have nothing really to say.
Hopefully Lester does well in Alex, I haven't fished that area yet. Lester I'm coming up your way over Labor Day weekend to fish the walleye capital of North Dakota: Lake Sakakawea

I tried posting yesterday but was having pwd problems. Then I found I had my user/pwd cached in my Safari browser today and will do a little bit of catching up....
No poker at Osakis VFW any more. Replaced it with bar bingo and needless to say I did not attend. For the one week in the cabin I had fresh fish dinners on three nights and still brought home enough fish for another dinner serving 3-4 people. Besides the 4-5 pound pike I posted the pic over at VPN on their last day of service I caught one keeper walleye (had to be over 15") 15.75" which I ate and also caught a 30" pike that was about an 8 pound fish. I do have a technique for cutting out the Y-bones and for certain pike is a firmer fish than walleye and I will leave the taste up to individual preference. I did manage to piss off the resort owner by bringing in my rented boat only 5 minutes before a hail storm blew in one afternoon. He knew a tornado warning was in effect but I did not. It shortly thereafter also rained in sheets and winds hit 30-40 miles per hour. Gimme a break I have fished in that level of weather when it was SNOWING OUT before. My daughter was with me a little over half of the week and when we weren't fishing we plowed through the Season 8 DVD set of Fox channel's "24". We did have one bad day with more rain than I would like but we had fine vacation dining (my own butchering of a whole beef tenderloin produced two fillet mignon's wrapped in bacon that each weighed just over a pound each by butterfly cutting three inch thick sections down to the tendon and thus creating a 1.5" cut of meat) going on in the cabin and just kicked back and had a great time. BTW: sliced watermellon cubes in a beer mug filled with champagne are AWESOME. Slice the watermellon over the beer mug so all juice ends up in the mug with the champagne. The infused champagne tastes great and then when using a fork to fish out the mellon cubes those are just as good. I just thought of something I need to deal with right now so I will check in on this thread again later.
