Eric, I wish I had a better fishing report for you but fishing has been slow for us on Bowstring and Moose Lake. Usually this time of year we head to Winnie for some hole hopping. Good luck and bundle up! \:\)

Hey Eric,

With the butt cold temps we're gonna be having, I think I'd stay home and dig out the bowhunting videos!!! Drop me an email and I've got a couple spots that may be worth trying.

Hey Rob,

Amanda and I hit that spot last Saturday afternoon. 2 other portables out there as well, one was a buddy of yours, can't think of his name right now. We fished from 3-6 and caught 15 crappies and kept 6. Nothing real big, but the keepers were 8.5 to 9.5". No bluegills but I think I had some on the graph that wouldn't bite. I'm hoping this cold will freeze up some slush and make it easier to get around. Thanks for the tip!

Brian

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
