We stayed in one of there houses on the first, the 4 of us had a great time. The house was nice, even though they told us it was one of the oldest. We caught around 20 walleyes, kept 12 in the 15 to 16 range, missed a few more, including one that had to be over 25 that we all saw swim by the hole before it broke the line. I caught the only crappie of the trip, but it was the biggest i had ever caught at 14 1/2, and one jumbo perch on the rattle wheel at 4 am (I didnt get a pic). Just wanted to say thanks again guys we had a great time, I will be giving Patsy a call today to see if we can get up again this season.

I'd like to take the time to thank the Petrowske boys as well. 4 of us were up over NY's and it was colder than a sonofagun. Although the 'eyes weren't as cooperative in our house as ones around us - the crappies managed to find our hooks... Can't wait to get back up there!

Glad to see everybody had a good time and got some dandy nice fish. Kelly and I would normally have stopped in and chatted a little more then we did but we are keeping the houses on the move steady chasing the fish around the lake and its keeping us pretty busy.

Todd, how come they made you hold the little fish? grin.gif

I guess I was too busy drinking PBR and cooking to get the big ones this time. I'm looking forward to giving it another go in another month or so John. Thanks again and good luck!

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
