Sad Day



Today is a day that I very much dislike every year.  The day I change oil and get the boat ready to go into storage for winter.  It is not like its a surprise since I live in North Dakota but every year I am always saddened when the time comes to put the boat away.

The good news is 2017 is just around the corner and my boat will be waiting for me all ready to go when I get it.  One of the reasons I do love living in the north is the seasons.  The fresh start with winter and again with spring.

So until April, good bye boat and I will see you on the other side.
2016 is a wrap and I sat down and told you all about it.  Be sure to get in on 2017.

I Love Catfish


Man do I love catfish.  Two years in a row the end of my season came and I was not ready for it to stop.  Being from North Dakota a sad truth about catfish is when the water temp goes below 50 degrees the catfishing gets really slow.  You can still target them and catch them but it can me a daunting task.

Yesterday I was out chasing fall walleyes with a buddy and telling him how I was not ready to be done and wish we could catfish longer here in the north.  About an hour later his walleye rod that was soaking on the bottom bent over and the drag started ripping.  It took quite a while on a medium walleye rod with a jig but what he got into was an amazing 23 pound channel cat.  A true thing of beauty and on November 1st.  That late catfish made my whole month.  So in the end I just love catfish.
