Anyone planning on heading up this weekend? I'm planning on going Saturday night and looking forward to the extra hour of fishing due to daylight savings time. Also looking forward to having a few less boats on the water.

If things go as planned, I'll be there Friday and Saturday night.

When does daylight savings time "kick in"?

I bought alot of Huskey jerk last weekend and was not able to get out and use it!

The boat is ready and I mite go out! I might give up deer hunting for another chance at Mille Lacs!

It should be pretty slow at the launches? I have plenty of venny for the next year and I know I will get plenty from others this year! Might as well save the hunting Lic. Fee's and use twords gas to the big pond!

I'll know later on this week what my plans are so you could call me before Friday if you'd like to find out whether or not I'll be up there.

The seminar went really well. Great discussion.

I have not been out to ML since July. Is there still a problem with shallow landings?

What is the best landing to go out of on the west side?

The public landings are low to, in some cases, not usable. If I was to pick the best public landing on the W side, I would say Pike Point, right in Garrison.

I ended up booking some guide trips down here for the weekend so I won't be making the trek North; at least not until Wednesday when I leave for Bambi camp.

Good luck to all this weekend. No reason it won't be a good one.

I'll give you a call tomorrow afternoon. I started to mark a lot of bait in our late season hot spot last weekend. Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good. I'm hoping for a better bite than we had last weekend. We'll have three guys in the boat tomorrow night which will allow us to try a lot of baits.

I wouldn't launch at a public ramp. Pay $10 at a private ramp. It makes things so much easier especially if the wind picks up. We launch at Terry's. Good depth and easy to find at 2 in the morning.

Good luck. I'll look for your boat as we'll be fishing the north and west side as well.

D, sounds great! Do you still have that doctored HJ that pulled our biggest fish last year on that unreal night? I have a doctored FT I call "bloody nose". It was a hot bait last Wed for a couple hours.

We will start up there with you but we are going to go searching for those pods of 27-30 inch sumos later in the night. We haven't picked up a 29 or better yet this fall, we are overdue. From what I've read and heard the fish still seem to be keying on small yoy perch but that may change tonight. wink.gif

Thanks for the tips on the landings guys. The wind will dictate if I go to the big pond or not with my 16'er. As nice as it is out right now it looks like I missed a good opportunity this morning.

I hope to make out there tonight.

Good luck this weekend.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
