I would like to apoligize as I will be mostly off line for the next week or two.

I just moved and the phone company needs a 911 adress to hook me up. Well the new place doesn't have one yet so I need to call the county...but not until after the sheriff department puts in their two cents so the mapping guys can come out and map the new road. Of course now you have to name the road before the county can make it a road so they can asign 911 numbers. Once this is done the numbers have to be registered...then...the phone company calls the county to verify the adress and 911 number. Then I can apply for new service that should take one to three weeks to hook up.

So after I call my rep who calls congress then contacts the president and notifys the govener to parden my computer and house so I may have internet I will be back on line and trying to answer questions as the ice slowly creeps across the lake.

Until then I will keep highjacking wireless bands and try to pop in every couple days.

I'm getting closer!!! I have an adress with 911 numbers and everything, now I have to meet with a guy to make sure they can get the service in, then the crew comes to run the cable and I have to meet them....then the last guy comes to hook it all up. This should take two to three weeks and I will get to meet the entire phone company! wink.gif

Definetly a spin on "We can hook you up in two maybe three days" I heard weeks ago. confused.gifsmirk.gif

SOON very soon. Looks like Monday we will be returning to our regularly scheduled programming!

Probably a good thing as I have not looked out from under a welding hood in a couple of days anyways. No time for internet or TV sure makes for alot of time to build super~plow trucks.

Heck I even read a book this week! wink.gif

...and we are back!

This is awesome! I checked the weather, read my emails, watched the news on TV and even answered my first phone call. Pretty cool even if it was a wrong number.

I have to admit the guys at the phone company had to run circles today but they got it done.

I understand not coming up from under a welding hood, but you read a book???

Please tell me it was "The history of battle," or "The book of meat." or " The big dang book of sheer manliness." or a tech manual, or a Chiltons manual.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?
