Fox line in, part of it anyway...

2 posts in this topic

Well I made it out today and got about 2 dozen sets in. just a few footholds and the rest were snares. I could only set one area out of 4 that I wanted to set because of heavy overflow. With the full moon we have super high tides so there is LOTS of water on the ice in many spots where I wanted to get into. If I could have taken the snowmobile all the way to the spots it would have been no sweat to waterskip, but there is a large cutbank on the edge of the overflow so this is a line i will have to walk to put in. No way was I going to walk through 3 feet of slushy river water when it is 10 below out. Hopefully it will subside quickly. Might get another dozen or two sets in tomorrow.

Feels great to be back out on the line again. I have also spent alot of time looking for sign of a wolf pack fairly close to where I live. They were spotted from the air the other day, but we could not find sign of them since we had a bunch of fresh snow. I will get down there again in a few days and search them out, OR i will get up in the air and find them.

Merry Christmas everyone, and may Santa deliver you full traps in the mornin.

Hey Fish, good to hear from you again. Good to have you back out trapping again. I'm going to have to get a fox line going after xmas too. I can't have you out doing me again. I wish you luck, keep us up to date.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
