Good Morning Everyone, Last Night Was One Of The coldest nights of the season in our area getting down to 17 degrees, but as daylight has came forth the temp has jump a few points to 24 degrees. now there is one thing that i don't like and that is wind in the winter time and this morning the wind is blowing at 9 MPH giving us a windchill of 15 degrees and man that cuts right threw the cloths and chills a person. Today we are looking to have partly cloudy skies and breezy with a high of 35 degrees probably won't feel that way with the wind though, our low tonight is looking to be 25 degrees so not as bad as last night i can deal with that. hope everyone is staying warm or at least has a place to get out of the chill when wanted have a great day everyone.
Well i guess winter is trying to show it's self on this morning of November the 17th, it is 7:05 AM and the temp is 26 degrees but rather windy with winds at 10 to 15 MPH it is also giving us a windchill of 16 degrees man that goes right threw your cloths. Today folks it's not going to warm up much with highs only reaching 30 degrees so it will be lucky to get out of the 20's, tonight it will be the coldest of the season with lows reaching 12 degrees with some single digits popping up here and there that should put us some ice on the water. Dress warm folks we live in Minnesota it's not hard to stay warm and have a great day everyone.
Hot Chowder For Cold Weather One of the best ways to enjoy your catch on a chilly, autumn afternoon is in the form of hot Fish Chowder. It's easy to make and—this ain't rocket science—you can leave out what you don't like, or add more of what you do. A lot of recipes call for halibut, haddock or cod, but it works just fine with crappies, bluegills, yellow perch, walleyes, pike (deboned, of course) or other firm, white fish. This will make about 10 one-cup servings, so plan on it feeding about four hungry anglers. It goes great with a cold beer and warm corn muffins or buttermilk biscuits.
Things You Need: 3 strips thick-cut bacon 1 large onion, chopped 1 stalk celery, diced 4 cups chicken broth 4 cups potatoes, chopped to bite-size 1 1/2-2 lbs. fish, cut into 1/2 - to 3/4-inch cubes Salt to taste Ground black pepper to taste 24 oz. evaporated milk 1 (15 oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained How You Make It 1. Cook bacon in large stockpot until crisp. Remove bacon; crumble. Pour off all but 1 to 2 teaSpoons of the drippings from stockpot.
2. Cook onion and celery in same stockpot until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Add potatoes and broth; bring to a simmer. Simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender. Add fish; simmer 10 minutes or until fish just begins to flake.
3. Stir in evaporated milk, corn, salt and pepper; cook until heated through (do not boil). Garnish with crumbled bacon.
Me and the 2 boys went out driving around yesterday and were looking for deer and didn't see any, but at the same time we tried a little fishing while we were out and about. Here is a couple of pictures of the 2 boys standing by his jimmy.
I should add also the it was raining, sleeting, misting, and snowing off and on all day long with highs in the low 30's.
This Is A Picture Looking Down River Where We Were Fishing.
These are a few pictures of the lake were that river feeds out of it is one of our best pike and catfish lakes it is only about 8 feet deep at it's deepest spot but it is low now that is why it is freezing over faster than other lakes, it won't be long and we will see houses out on this lake but there is still slush on the top in some places.
Here is a picture of me standing on the shore of a different lake that is deeper so it is still open all the way, remember it is only like 31 degrees out. This is the lake were i will have my spear house out on taking pictures while im on the house spearing.
Hope you enjoy i will try and get a few more pictures as the deer season goes by, sorry if any are a little blurry the dang lense would fog up and i didn't notice it.
