By the way this board is going, I would say pretty slow.

But! get up and have some fun. Who knows, you could get in on some good fish.

Like they say, a bad day of fishing is still sure better than a good day at work. IMO tongue.gif

went out last night and caught 9 walleyes but the weather was horrible and we only fished from 7 30 to 10 00. The biggest was 26 1/2 and we only got 2 keepers but it was a good time for the most part. Heading back out today hopefully

We were up yesterday and got into the perch, lots of little ones..had to really work for the jumbos, but it was fun doing it. Artificals out fished live bait by alot! We were kinda monitoring the other boats.

The wind was really kicking and it was hard to hold, for us anyways. One time we thought we had really dug in, we had..the anchor got hooked around a huge cable and we had to fight that thing for about a half hour before we were able to get loose....up it would come, then down it would go...finally with cranking and tugging we got it to the surface and got ourselves free...I wasn't about to give up my anchor without a fight!

The anchor deal was the first thing....then we are sitting there fishing, minding our own business and a boat with two young 20 something lads pulls up, anchors into the wind and within 5 minutes with the whole of Mille Lacs lake out there for them, one of the nimrods casts about a 4 pound orange beetle spinner right into our boat!

It wasn't the wind, the wind couldn't have moved that thing!

I had serious thoughts about whipping out my Buck knife and cutting it off....using it for an anchor to help us stay put! I opted to just ignore it for a minute or two, let em sweat...then I just plopped it back over the side...the fella did apologize, but if that thing would have hit me in the head? I would probably be drinking soup through a straw right now! grin.gif

All in all it was fun and I really didn't get angry with that young fella with the bad aim...I was just puttin on...food for thought.

Gotta go up again next week-end, maybe the wind will cooperate a litte better....which reminds me, I best go buy me one of them 400 pound Mille Lacs anchors.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
