I stayed a bit closer to home and hit O'Dowds. I couldn't believe how many perms are out there in front of the landing...a small city with a quite few vehicles driving around.

I got off the beaten path about as far away from everyone as I could and started deep. Found very little action, so I drilled a series of holes up the break and finally found a good bunch of fish at 15'. Lot's of perch with some eyes mixed in. Nothing real big, but a few of the perch were suprisingly plump.

Got a chance to try out my new AquaView Scout II. I was impressed with how clear it was!

went to Prior yesterday afternoon with my SIL's boyfriend. Caught 8-10" crappies for about 3 hours and then they shut down, were still on the Marcum but they shut down.

12" of ice and full size trucks all over the place. Only a matter of time before prior makes the news again with trucks falling in.........

dtro, I thought about going to Odowds but figured I didn't want to walk all the way out to the deep hole. Where were you drilling holes on the break and catching walleyes..... grin.gif

I wanna get out tonight.

I was tooling around on the snowmobile last night on Prior and stopped and talked to a few people.

Let me know if anyone wants company on Prior or O'dowd today.

Went out on local drainage pond looking for some slabs, all I got was about 30 5"-8" crappies. This was Christmas Eve Morning.

Besides that, been working on my basement every night for almost 2 weeks. Got to get it done.

Good luck to anyone who goes out. cool.gif

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.

      Looking for an unforgettable outdoor adventure this summer? Sign up for one of the I Can! programs offered by Minnesota state parks and trails.   Reservations are being taken for the following beginner-level programs, which start in June and continue through the end of August: I Can Camp! – Develop (or brush up on) fire-starting and camp cooking skills and sleep on air mattresses in tents large enough to accommodate two adults and up to three children ($60 for one-night programs or $85 for two-night programs). I Can Paddle! – Get out on the water for a guided canoeing, kayaking or sea kayaking adventure (prices vary).  I Can Climb! – Experience the thrill of rock climbing with instruction provided by trained professionals from Vertical Endeavors Guided Adventures ($10/child, $20/adult).  I Can Mountain Bike! – Learn riding techniques and explore mountain bike trails with guides from the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Club ($15/child, $25/adult).  I Can Fish! – Kids will have fun of casting into the water and enjoying the excitement when there’s a tug on the line. ($5/person, children under 12 are free). The I Can! series also includes the Archery in the Parks program, which is free and for which no reservations are needed. “Not having the right equipment or know-how can be a barrier to spending time outdoors,” said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota state parks and trails. “The I Can! programs make it easy for families to enjoy camping and other outdoor experiences by providing tents, canoes, mountain bikes and other gear. Friendly instructors also provide plenty of tips and encouragement so that adults and kids can both have fun learning new skills.” Registration and more information For more information including program dates, times, locations, and minimum age requirements—visit www.mndnr.gov/ican or contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday). To register for a program, visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations or call 866-857-2757 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. daily, except holidays). This series of introductory programs is made possible with funding from the Parks and Trails Fund, created after voters approved the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment in November 2008. The Parks and Trails Fund receives a share of sales tax revenue that may only be spent to support parks and trails of regional or statewide significance. The I Can! programs received a Government Innovation Award in 2015. More than 12,800 people have participated in these programs since they were first offered in 2010.
