I caught one a few weeks ago in front of Barkers Island Hotel on a bomber. It totally sunk my board into the depths. I was fishing in the fog so it was sort of erie.

Got it to the side of the boat and my board came up off the bottom. Once I got the fish to the side of the boat I was disapointed to see it was a 49-50" ski. Oh well I popped the hooks out with the fish still in the water and let her go back to doing her thing. Thats the only nice one I have seen this year. Did catch a few dinkers up river trolling spinners.

Now that the season is getting rolling for them I think its time I start trying out Cheffreys "Musky Fingers" recipe. tongue.gifwink.gif

Ya I know but they taste so much better than a ski. At least they taste better than the ones over 40". wink.gif

The Airport flats was full of ski's again on Sunday night. Caught 3 more on the same bomber. The one particular bomber I was catching them on has been retired to the back of the stick box for a long long time. grin.gif

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
