The new rod showed up this morning

This rod is so cherry, it feels sweet in your hand. Definitely worth the $$$. It should be able to tame most of the crazy fish that I chase...

Congratulations on the new edition to the family grin.gif Seriously though, that is a great rod and I have a feeling I might be sharing some shoreline with you on the Brule this spring grin.gif

I agree with Porter. I could never buy a new rod in the winter, it would drive me nuts until spring! I get excited enough as it is just thinking about the rivers thawing out in the spring. Having to think about the new toys I acquired over the winter would most likely put me over the edge! grin.gif

That's going to be a sweet stick for ya.

the dreaded cabin fever can be quite deadly this time of year... Good thing I have my tying to help tide me over ;\)

I'm a bit envious, JP. \:\)

My rod inventory is staying the same this year unless I happen to win one at a banquet, but I'd like to pick up a good 6wt for smallies...

...and btw, you could always come down here for a weekend of winter trout fishing. Keep an eye on the forecast and pick a decently mild weekend.

my wife works every other weekend, so that cuts my opportunities in half. so far, I have enough activities to last through the early C&R season.

I'll likely be down in the SE working late spring/early summer. Since I'll have nothing to do down there after work, we'll have to meet up and hit some streams.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
