Definitely the scum of the earth. Two years ago while my Dad was in the hospital some scum broke into our cabin up that way and trashed the place. So while dealing with my Dad being in very serious condition I had to go up there and fix the broken window and clean the place up.

glenn57, Doesn't suprise me a bit! It's more than likely my old "neighbor". IF that's the case, he ONLY moved 6 miles. My Dad caught his 2 brats (10-12 years old)breaking into our storage shed by the dock "red handed" (Actually IN the window!) And the little S*bs STILL tried to lie out of it! The neighbor on the other side of us lost a 4 wheeler to thieves. Guess who had a "stripped/wrecked" wheeler for the brats to drive! Our washer and dryer were ripped, This guy had a stack of washers and dryers(3 high) behind his house!! NO, Mine was not in the stack. ALMOST the best thing that could happen, did. He and his MOVED! Why almost?? WE don't know HOW FAR AWAY! I'm sure he's still in the area, as he couldn't afford enough powder to blow himself to (you know where). In the time he was a "neighbor", we were broken into 7 (yes 7)times. Since he moved, NADA! If it IS him..... I wish you luck and a clear/clean shot! Phred52

we have 80 acres of land between Longville and Hackensack and our hunting shack has been broken into numerous times. Once they got ahold of our fire extingisher and dusted the whole place so we had to gut it and remodel the whole inside. And after this guy who lived a couple of miles away moved we havent had any problems we also think he poached a nice buck off our land

Browning24, That sounds just like one of the times we were broke into. Sprayed fire extinguisher all over the living room, went through EVERY closet, drawer and cardboard box there was! I wish I could find that old "neighbors" name, at least his present neighbors could be alerted. Phred52

From what I heard the reason they spray the fire extinguisher is to remove any finger prints, and also make one heck of a mess.

Browning24, I have a Backus address, I'm located about 6 miles east of the town. There's a bunch of us "so-centrals" in that area (44 I'm aware of). Phred52

Nutty, It sure covers everything up! Also tells me that clown wasn't just a "rookie". He obviously has used the technique before or learned of it from one of his more "experienced" friends. Phred52

Hey Nutty!!! Welcome! #45. I'm on Hattie, a little south of you yet, but none the less "gods country". It amazes me the fact that I can walk into Godfreys and meet someone from this area! Last summer, I had a trailer of scrap, I pulled into the Godfreys parking lot and struck up a conversation with another area semi-resident! He was in the process of cleaning up the cabin grounds after his father passed away and was wondering where to take the recycleables. If I recall correctly, he was from Nicollet. Small world. Would I be correct to presume you're on Ox Yoke for the smallies?? Maybe the other?? I've heard tales of the lake, just never made it there myself. Maybe now that I'm retired, I'll find the time.

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Mayflies were just getting started on the west end of the lake last weekend.

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!
