Just got back to the St. Cloud area....again, we had an awesome trip filled with 'eyes, pike, perch, and stories....what a gas. My boys (7 and 12) absolutely enjoyed every tug and tap on the lines....we caught about 100 to 120 walleyes...we'll be back toward the end of February.....thanks again for a trip to remember!! I still can't believe we got that 40" pike in on 6lb test....by hand! Happy New Year! grin.gif

Sorry I missed you guys today but one of the hard and fast rules of Hillman's road is that if you have rentals on Hillman's road and Buddy says lets plow you have 20 minutes to be there with your V-Plow. He did give us a little warning last night by telling us to be there at first light to push the main road west.

After hearing Jon's story about his white pickup, we just thought that you were out toward the line looking for cracks shocked.gifshocked.gif Whata a story!!!! Again, many thanks for all the hard work you do...we had a great time....the only thing we forgot to mention was that the smoke alarm had phantoms in it....Jon replaced the battery, but suddenly it would go off around the same time the walleyes would show up...strange....you might have to charge extra for that house! smirk.gif

That thing was going haywire again today, I replaced it with a different one and no more beeping.

I need to remember to bring the camera home and get those pics of the perch king and his perch he was hooking uploaded.

Kelly, Patsy and Jon, Thanks for putting my Grandaughter and myself in that GREAT SPOT. We had ball catching all those eyes. After Jon left things started to go gang busters. Are you planning on leaving that house there for the season. I sure liked what was on the bottom of those holes. Again, thanks for a great time. That little girl went to grama's with a smile on her face and a experience she won't soon forget. You should have heard the yarn she was spinning to her grandpa. He told me I taught her well. He said she is a true fisherman, she can tell fish stories with the best of them. I told him she has a ways to go, she doen't know how to lie yet grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I would like to get back in that house with Georgia, she would have a ball.

Later Kelly, sorry you were tied up in the road situation, but what a fantastic road, you guys are real pro's.

Thanks Again.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
