For my Minnesota Friends.. And other to Enjoy...

THIS IS HOW TO FISH IN MINNESOTA Got this one from Jeff's sister in Law.. Enjoy.. It looks reallly neat though.. I will make rounds tomorrow since I have tomorrow off and work the rest of the week.. Take care my friends and hope every one is warm and snuggled up with something or someone..

I was going to build the Gazebo on the edge of my dock down by the lake but I thought .I might just as well build the deck with floats on it and I can then take it out fishing too...... Has 15,000# capacity. The deck is 18ft x 18ft with 12 plastic foam filled dock floats that are 4ft x 4ft by 18 inches high and the Gazebo is 10 ft. Hexagon with a table and chairs. Inside, under the table is my trolling motor so I can take it out to my favorite fishing hole. The trolling motor is remote controlled wireless so I can be fishing outside and operate the motor. On the top of the table I have a LOWRANCE Fish-Finder with depth sounding sonars and temp gauge. I have 2 electric winches with 40# anchors. I have also built in a water pump so I can clean the fish right on the spot.


Now I can relax and fish while my wife can sit and relax.

I hope they have a ladder to dangle off it in case someone wants to swim too (it would scare the fishies thought)

I just put up with fruit flies - I wouldn't want to eat raid.

Very few flies here - fruit or otherwise - I don't know why. Maybe hang some of those sticky strips above the bananas? Peel the bananas, freeze them, dip them in chocolate and then freeze some more? My kitties will eat the occasional fly who finds its way here so I would be careful of any kind of poison.....

The flys in Iowa when I lived there were horrendous - but I don't remember what I did to control them...???

Love that picture...is it true? It's a hoot and really ppretty.

I don't know how to get rid of the fruitflies...except I'd put the bananas in the fridge for a few days and then the flies will go away. They must have been living on the bananas or something. Hide bananas.

Wow! That's quite impressive! I love it!

About the fruit flies: Take a piece of peeled banana and place it in a clean jar. The Jar should be clean so that the smell of the banana will be strong. Cover the top with plastic wrap and wrap a rubber band around the edge so the plastic is tight, the poke four or five holes in the plastic wrap with the tip of a pen. The fruit flies will fly into the jar through the holes and be trapped. For some reason they don't have brains enough to fly back out through the holes. When you've got a lot of little dumb fruitflies in the jar, spray it with raid, wash the jar out and do it again. If you've got a lot of fruit flies in different rooms, use more than one jar. Continue this method until your fruit flies are a thing of the past.

It's a home made fruit fly trap I got off of the internet because we get invaded with them too. I use it and it works.

Happy fruit fly hunting! :)

Works best if the banana is over ripe.

SME said...

Hmm, I'll have to try Gayle's fruitfly trap sometime. I get them from bananas now and again, too, and they drive me nuts. Dogs eat them, but rabbits just stare at them...

This floating gazebo is amazing, I would love to go fishing from it. i don't know anything about fruit flies but please, don't use Raid.

Fruitflies!! The bane of my existence at my old office. We were fighting those buggers for over a year. They just kept reproducing and coming, no matter what.

If they put shutters on that gazebo, they'd have a nice ice-fishing house. ;)

sticky tape. They have it at florists and garden shops.
