I couldn't drink. My gf and I were heading back last night and since it's a 3 hour drive near midnight, I couldn't just rely on her to drive in case she got tired.

What's not to like?
It was nice at first, but after about 4-5 hours of not catching a thing it got real old real fast. I tried fishing for the first time in 10-12 years this past summer, and I really enjoyed that. Being out on the lake and attempting to get a tan(even though I just get red)...that was very relaxing.

Bundled up in a little house with a bunch of drunks when I can't even join them, when they all get 4-5 fish between the three of them, that's just...annoying. Then throw in the fact my gf's grandma comes out four hours after I did and five minutes after she sat down she caught a huge ****ing walleye and it was like pouring acid in a wound.

A lot better than spend money on $10 drinks in some loud, sweaty bar in downtown Minneapolis.
Tried to play cards, but nobody could agree on a single game, then three of the guys were too drunk to understand a game me, my gf, and another guy were trying to teach them, and it was just meh. Fish fry afterwards was very nice though.

Also, drinking and card playing helps a lot.
Lake of the Woods. Went in from Springsteel island, which is about 10 minutes north of Warroad.
