Hemi,

Looks like a bunch of fun. Did the Shorthair get whiplash? What is that device around it's neck?

She was a young one...only 6 months old and took off after a jack rabbit right into a bobbed wire fence. Put a 2" slice right through her ear (you could pull it open and see right through). She was taken to the vet right after. Blood everywhere but she still wanted to hunt. That was her ear taped to to body so it did not flop around, she had 10 stitches put in.

I am glad I had taken down the vet information for the area (SW ND) and knew what vet was open, had the number, and directions to get there. Nobody else in my group had any info and were just going to drive into town to see what they could find. We later found out that the vet he was going to find was closed on Saturdays and would have had to drive two hours to got to the one I had info on.

Don't want to highjack the post....but thanks Kallista, the yellow is my 2.5 year old Kash. Unfortunately he will be retired from full day pheasant hunts after next fall due to multiple joint issues (his parents were OFA good or better on hips and elows).

The one in the back was my buddies bro-in-laws dog, 8 years old. Not the great hunter in the world but kept up for 3 days of hunting until she cut her bad fairly bad. Only the two labs came away from the weekend uninjured.

Ken, is that pic of you guys from a ND hunt?

Actually South Dakota... I gave up on North Dakota about 6 or 7 years ago. Even though it's a draw license, I can live with missing a year now and then.

Good Luck!

Ken

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
