You know you’re having a bad day when….

Well, it wasn’t all bad.   A nice sunset over VBL.

        1. Dr. Bastable,
          I once knew a doctor in Grantsburg, Wisconsin who had a whole wall of musky lures hanging in his office. They were the baits that he had removed from patients over the years that donated their lure to the wall of shame. I think you should do the same in the fish house? There is also a discussion on this topic right now on Walleye Central (fish hook in the face).

  1. Red skies at night, fisherman’s fright?
    Red skies at night, blood in sight?
    It’s time for everyone to check out the movie “Blood Hook” filmed in Hayward Wisconsin. It’s a story about a guy named Gord, who kills Anglers with musky baits during “Musky Madness” and then puts them on a stringer at the end of the dock. See the trailer:
    Or the whole movie on Youtube (skip ahead to the 2:40 mark):
    Gord, you should probably have a movie night as part of next year’s Musky Madness week?

  2. We gave the Robs some live bait before we left camp. It looks like they graduatedto to big boy lures. Rumor has it that they were seen running around camp with scissors as well.

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
