good luck to all of you that are going this year. it looks like they should be in full rut. calling should be great if the wind stays calm.

I may be staying at a bunkhouse near the moose loop road, but I'm still waiting on a confirmation. If that doesn't work out, I may be staying at the same campground as you, or the Echo Lake campground. If that doesn't work out, then I'm just camping out in the back of my truck on one of the turn-offs...a blue Dodge Dakota with a black topper and the Ruger stickers on the side. It's all good to me. grin.gif If I see you, I'll stop by and maybe we can share a coffee, pop, or beer and compare notes.

We hunted Zone 28 Saturday with no luck. Lots of wind made for difficult calling. We managed to call in a couple timber wolfs but that was it. Pull out today because of the rain. Anyone have any luck?

I just spoke with my roommate. He got around a 900 lb. bull out of zone 21 today around noon.

BigDrift,

Did you guys get one? I never made it to your campsite...was always coming out in the dark and was too tired and hungry, so I'd head right for the sleeping quarters. Hope you had luck. I saw a massive bull (I keep calling it a "postcard bull" to my friends) on the first Tuesday and ended up with a small bull on the second Saturday. After packing out the meat, I am glad it was a small one. wink.gif

Thanks benelli_dude for the tips! grin.gif

If you are talking about whoever was driving the white truck from Cook, I'm not sure. I never saw him. I know I heard him calling for a few days in a row and I saw his truck parked at the same clearing this past Sunday, so I'm guessing that guy didn't get one yet. I saw a lot of sign in that Lake Jeanette clearing I was hunting when you saw me, and I even saw the back-end of one that first Monday in there, but I moved closer to the other end of the zone. No hunters down there. That's where I got mine. The guy from Melrose that I met at the place I rented out was coming back this week, so I know he didn't get one yet.

Good job!

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
