Happy Easter Weekend To All!!!!!!

posted on 04/11/2009
Good morning to all my fishing pals!!!!

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Easter weekend, and hope everyone finds a little joy in sharing the day with family and friends, as I know I will. Mom, wish you were with us, we all miss you; please give our best to Grandma and Grandpa and the rest of the family.

Well I know that I said I was going fishing yesterday, but unfortunately, I was unable to make it out…very depressing. The only plus that I could get out of it was, the Wigwam Resort was starting to field the phone calls instead of make them…love it when that happens. That is a major plus and I would sacrifice my day on the water to put together some vacation trips for some enthusiastic anglers any day of the week…even though I was really looking forward to it. But, I guess that’s why I live up here, if I can’t do it today, I can do it tomorrow.

I have been hearing from our customers and the local talent that the fish are heavy in Four Mile Bay and right at the mouth of Rainy River. There have been a number of anglers that have been making the trip down to the Birchdale area on Rainy River and they are not seeing the same results…I guess the water is still a bit muddy down that way. I have been saying to myself that I hope the water clear up for the Sturgeon Excursion on April 24th, 25th and 26th…I’m sure it will.

I will keep saying this everyday until it is here, but I CAN’T WAIT TILL MAY 8TH! I am really looking forward to this summer of fishing. I have recently moved back to northern Minnesota to put my roots back deep in the ground to be closer to family and some old fishing buddies, that I would only see when I’d come home fishing a couple weeks out of each summer. For all of you that have siblings I know you will understand my next statement; I can’t wait to fish with my little brother, as much as humanly possible this summer…it’s great to be home.

Being raised in International Falls, MN by a bad to the bone, but yet, loving ex-marine, my childhood was filled with outdoor activities that I wasn’t being able to experience on a regular basis, back in Michigan. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Michigan with its northern Minnesota like landscape, but nothing I have found to date replaces the real thing. Needless to say, that’s why I have come back to “the promise land” (my old hockey buddies will get that one). In my short life I’ve been able to live a very fulfilling life, but I always knew there was something missing and as the old saying goes, you can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy…it hits home for me.

My shout out today will go to my little brother Ryan…thanks for the dinner last night, it was awesome, I can’t wait to go fishing little buddy. Enough said.

Well take care and again I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend. I will be back reporting on Monday. Happy Fishing to all, and to all a good day!
