Check out wilderness warmth out of cove. Great roads to get you out a ways, wheel houses can be pulled out with vehicles. Talk to jay,amber or Brandon for some advice.

People driving out of appledorns. Spent the night out there, alot a trucks on ice. I was about two miles straight out of appledorns sunset bay resort. Nice roads and about 12" of ice. Lot of 1/2 ton trucks where I was fishing. Plows were going further out when I left. As always check with resorts before you go out with vechile.

Are they driving out of garrison sports yet? I want to get the house out next weekend but I saw how close to shore the pressure ridge is this year and want to wait until they get the bridge out. How much ice is out of garrison right now?

Would double check on Wilderness Warmth and Cove. Jay said ice was NOT good with flooding as of a few days ago. They are not pulling yet. A guy died off the point last year (maybe year before) so double check. Jay does keep up nice roads on the weekends but they often are not plowed during the week.

judging from last weekend, there is a chance in you know what that you'll be driving out of garrison sports. I went out of there last weekend and it's pretty crappy ice. the ice is actually o.k. but it's all slush on top. I went with the wheeler and couldn't get any farther than garrison reef.

Drove off of Wilderness Warmth last Thursday. They were pulling all the big houses out and plowing roads all day. I'm not sure how far out we went, but it was at least 1 mile.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
