How are you coming on the damage to the cabin? HOpe it wasn't to serious and you're getting it done before the snow flies.

I'm shutting down the water etc, pulling the dock and lift this weekend. Sure not looking forward to it but I guess there's not much I can do to slow down mother nature. Two weeks from now I will be in SD so maybe that will take my mine off of it for awhile. With the leaves pretty much gone I can almost see into your kitchen window from my dock LOL.. grin.gif.Have a good fall, perhaps see you there on the hard water. Bill

I was there last weekend and saw the damage first hand, not too major. I have someone lined up to fix the roof but they hadn't got to it yet, it was pretty rainy last week, hopefully it will be done soon. Three out of four panes of glass were broke out on one window, took them out and brought them to Mora for glass replacement, will be ready by this weekend. I put a piece of plywood over the window for now. The roof shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred bucks and the glass should be under a hundred, so no insurance claim will be needed. Cut up a few downed trees.

So things should be back to normal soon.

I'll be up Sunday to take the dock and pontoon out, my fishing boat and lift are already out. The following weekend I'll be shutting the water system down. I have a busy schedule this fall so I need to get things done when I can, a little earlier this year than normal.

Ice fishing will be here soon, maybe I'll try over your way this winter (early before the "village" appears). Dave

Sounds good. I hope to be up before the ice is thick enough to support full size vehicles and big wheel houses. The fish we've been catching that way have been awfully small, occassional decent size, but mainly 6-8". Released 3 others 21", 22" and 23" last weekend.

Glad to hear no major damage to the cabin. Hope to see you on the hard stuff. Bill

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
