Best Christmas Gift of 2013

This is the best Christmas gift I got this year. My brother gave it to me. It’s a fish finder transducer made by Vexilar that turns your smartphone into a fish finder. The transducer transmits to your smartphone via wifi. It’s the mos...

Ice Out 2013 – Update

What a difference a year makes. If anyone was watching the ice out in Minnesota this year and last, they would see a striking difference. It’s like the Minnesota Twins in 1990-91 where they went from last in their division in one year to winn...

Happy Bloggaversary to Me

As I was driving in to work this morning, I had heard on the radio that it was the 4th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. It occurred to me that I started this blog right around the same time. Then I realized I had missed my own bloggave...

Ice Out Watch 2013

After a snow-crazy April, Spring came in like a lion. We went from 3″ of snow dropping on us on Monday (and 7″ the week before), to 70 degree temps 3 days in a row. With that, Spring made its presence known and Ice Out Watch 2013 can no...

Virtual Derby Results

As much as I’m into fishing, I don’t really get into the pro tournaments. I don’t follow the pro anglers or the tours. As such, I don’t fish tournaments myself. Fishing is an enjoyable recreational activity for me and I don...

Goals for 2013

Happy New Year! After getting home late from my neighborhood New Year’s Party, I had to take some time to wind down before going to bed, so I actually put some thought into my goals this year (unlike last year). I still have some carryover fro...

Year in Review : 2012

As usual, Lego League and the holidays kept me from thinking about fishing during the last few months of the year. Looking back at 2012 and the year, I did a lot more fishing than I expected and accomplished a number of my fishing goals for the year...

2012 Recycled Fish 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon

The magic of technology today is that you can learn about a lot of things that traditional media might not tell you about, especially in sub-cultures. Even so, word of some things get around slower than others. While I was on Facebook this evening,...

MNAngler, Jr. and Crispy Fins

As much as I would like to take MNAngler, Jr. out fishing more often, opportunities are few and far between. I bought him a new fishing rod a few weeks ago because last fall, he dropped his Spiderman rod and reel in the lake. Then the replacement Tr...

Orvis Casting Course

When I was in Bend, OR for my family reunion last fall, I heard there was an Orvis store in town. While I’m not a fly fisherman, I was hoping I could get an idea of where a bass fisherman could wet a line. Besides, I can’t resist a fish...

Rainbow Trout Management

On our way up to my father-in-law’s cabin, Mrs. MNAngler and I decided to look for the MN DNR Fishery that is on Hwy 61 on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We hadn’t been there in years and thought the kids might like it. We found it n...

So ends year #3. Since my last bloggaversary, my activity has slowed down due to my new job, but recently it’s been picking up again. I couldn’t believe I didn’t pick up a rod and reel until almost June this year, but since then I&...

MN-NonAngler

It’s the last day of May and it bothers me that I didn’t publish a single post in April. So I definitely couldn’t let another whole month go without a post. The problem is, I haven’t touched a rod since before ice-out, whic...
