I went out here last night. I got buzzed by some ringbills, the dog saw them before I did. I turned around to fire and they were already over my head, fastest (Contact Us Please) thing I have ever tried to shoot at. Right then two drakes came right into my spread, by the time I reloaded they were gone, then a nice pair of mallards landed about 50 yds behind me in the cattails. All of this happened in a span of abotu 20 minutes, other than that, high flying groups and a lot of sky. I'll have to wait till later in the season for some bigger and less shy mallards to move in. Yesterday was frustrating for me, I will be back out there next week after work to give it a try again....I stay away from there on weekends, it is quit the scene.

Back to my point about staying away from pelican on the weekends, especially in the fair weathr part of the season. It is hard to have a good hunting experience with 500 other hunters right in the same area. No wonder birds don't come around there a lot, it is one giant shooting gallery any given sat am during the season. I do not live far from the lake, and I like to drive by it on sat morns on my way to other spots and just laugh as I see 100 trucks competing for a space in line at the launch. I keep weekends to hunting private land or north dakota. I love going out to pelican because it is very close to my home, but I get sick and tired of showing up at a lake around 4 am only to get a barrage of spotlights shined in my face every spot I go to.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
