I live in walleye central. 8/day.
You get walleyed out.
Walleye dip is divine.

When I cut into a package of flash frozen halibut or cod from Alaska, that I caught myself, the whole package is just more enticing to me than eating walleye.
Still eating off a 60” fish from last November.


Out there doing it best I can.

A fitting place to visit on Memorial Day.

Headed home today (leaving the old truck behind and flying out of Bemidji). Hopefully the work we did this last 10 days or so will keep the place running for a another few years. I'll be back in September to confirm all that, of course. Hopefully by then the grouse will be much more active and these darn mosquitos will not be. I'm even consdering investing in a "mosquito magnet" device for the place, which is really saying something. Darn unpleasant this year, for sure.

Mosquitos are tough all over Minnesota, this year, Lloyd. There are a few reasons why, but, nothing to do with climate change, so don’t take that wooden nickel.

Have a safe trip home.

Best,
Ted

Talked to a lady from Bemidji on the plane today and she pretty much confirmed your assessment Ted. I just hope I don't get Malaria or Zika or even West Nile from all the blood donations I was involuntarily making up there, even inside the house(!). In my 20-years or so of visiting the place, I've seen it like this before.

Lloyd,
I don’t think malaria is a “thing” in northern Minnesota. Good chance you’ve already had Zika and West Nile.

This one is spooky:

Had a motorcycle friend die of it last month. Not the way I want to make Wikipedia.

Best,
Ted

Sadly, I'm familiar with that one too. Sounds far-worse than what I went through with just garden-variety Lymes. Sorry to hear about your friend. I'm pretty careful about ticks anymore, as you can imagine.
