Last night I was sitting outside, at my new house in Newport. We are about a block and a half from the river. Heard the gesse talking... thought "welcome home from nature".

Now, I have to find out how far south to take the boat out to hunt.

The parents of the brood on my pond have been testing their new feathers,and making 30 and 40 yard flights just off the water. The young ones haven't got the urge yet.

I left for NoDak this morning for work. I drove up 94N to 29N took hwy 5 all the way over to great town of Bottineau and then down to hwy 3 to hwy 52 into Jamestown where im typing this now and saw nothing in the air. I saw a few potholes full of divers and mallards. Still no color to the mallards. Didnt see hardly any geese. The only geese saw were near Monticello in a field approx. 25 of them.

On a side note I still dream of hunting the local geese on Tonka. Boy does it stay full of them.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
