CK -

I believe I asked this before, but how is the water level on Gun? Still pretty low? Weedlines setting up yet?

Just the kind of info I'm lookin' for - are you still finding those crappies on Gun? I suppose the water has warmed up quite a bit by now...in days past, we'd run into a school now and again while trolling for walleyes. Then that cabbage started producing a few as well.

And I forgot to mention the big sunnies we'd catch trolling for walleyes. Wife pulled one in that was a smidge under 11" - I could barely(!) get my hand around it. We both thought she had a decent 'eye on right up until we netted it!

Fun, fun, fun.

even if I knew I could not say.

I've been asked not to mention lakes anymore.

You'll have to privately email me.

palisade1kid@yahoo.com

I was giving almost daily reports.that had to stop.

Now no matter the lake I'll post in Lard lake thread. Feel free to get up with me to see what's what on the water these days.

It sure would be nice to be open about what's going on.

It seems almost worthless making posts nowadays.

Since I'm not seeing responces or questions I'm thinking about using this forum as it was designed which is to give different lake info as it happens regaurdless of the attacks by the few unhappy lake residents.

sorry to be so negative as you are new here,but if you read some of my post in these threads of our area you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm hoping to make you feel at home and whatever I can do for you ,just name it.

CK in Palisade

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
