What a weekend
« on: Feb 12, 2019, 01:27 AM »
Day 1... Started out getting to the lake late, then the wind was blowing so hard against my jet sled it would just spin my wheeler, I headed out for a cove that would protect me from the wind. Cove was occupied... no big deal  plan B off to a  bigger cove, it also was occupied but enough room for a few traps... so pull out old jiffy gas auger 2nd pull snapped the pull cord.. pulled out my back up propane jiffy first pull snapped the pull cord.  (what are the odds) gave up for the morning and went home to fix both augers.. went back out for last 2 hours and braved  the wind in the middle of the lake and managed a small cusk to save the day...
 Day 2. Got to the lake early  got to my spot  at day break and about  30 mins later notice a hole my brother baited the spool of the trap was just barely sticking out of the water and of course frozen in place with a baitlesss hook( amateur hour) after fixing the problem he managed jigging a laker up about 18"  after a long day of running and gunning we found some fish for the last hour my brother lost a tank and I caught a fat 24 inch laker that was definatly board worthy but I caught it at 2:15 and would of never made it to the board on time so back through the hole it went....

im still a hot mess two days later...red face, shedding lips, sore back, bad elbow , tired, hungry, hungover and my stuff is still all over the place...hoping tomorrow is better day...can still hear the wind when I lay my head down to bed...hahaha...fun though
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

I hear that... my wheeler, shack and all my gear are still on the trailer, when I heard snow coming my first move wasn't to get it all unloaded and out of the weather... just stopped at tractor supply last night and grabbed a tarp big enough to cover it all lol... will deal with it Saturday. good times.

You are not alone... I feel better this afternoon,  now I've got a head cold,  first one in a few years..you forgot the split fingers, I'm sure you got them too, everyone at work keeps asking me why my finger tips are all bandaged up...I just tell them they won't understand.
When I got home I backed the wheeler in the yard and threw a tarp on it, put the bait in my tank down in the shop,scarfed down a small cheese pizza and went to bed,  work was brutal yesterday, I had to clean fish,last night, it's about all I could handle  tonight, maybe I'll unpack, old spirits returning, I'm already planning this weekends adventure.

For everyone (mostly us old guys) with split fingers - try O'Keefe's working hands. both lotion and paste. Stings like hell on open splits but it does work to heal the cracks.

Yup have that stuff but nothing works like neosporin and a flexible fabric band aid!

Been turning wrenches professionally for 25 years... ive got scars and calluses on top of my scars and calluses... best heal I've found is to sauce up your hands a ton with whatever hand creme your girl has then put on some latex gloves and sleep the night like that... a couple nights and you'll be back to normal.

I've used that and most everything else listed here.
Pretty sure you'll find the salt in the saltwater is drying out your hands. I think the oils help give the skin some elasticity?
Watched Mice and Men at least a couple times. Great movie! CRS doesn't allow me to remember names as well now, Fred, but I always felt bad for that big guy and his best friend who had to put him down. Understood why, though.
Been there, done that, Stealth and Roccus with both the split fingers and throwing the tarp over at the end of the trip. "Tomorrow's another day". Was that Gone with the Wind?  ;)
