I was excited as well until I read article.

Looks like next year we will feel the pinch.

Anybody have any more details on why the low survey numbers??

We didn't do THAT good this year.

a friend of mine's father has a house on the north shore and he told me that the fish were just thick floating up there this summer. He said it was way worse than other years as far as what they had to pick up.

Lotsa dead fish from heat or CPR or what ever....

Judging by the lower catch rates this fall, i'm starting to believe the net surveys frown.gif

I hope the perch numbers are still good. I really don't care what I keep or throw back, I am there for the fun that is Mille Lacs in the winter.

The question is how a "boost" for local business this winter going to affect those same business' next spring and summer? I know a lot of them are hurting up there right now.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
