Everything changes everyday. It's imposible to predict much of anything. Also remember that you could fit many 1,000's of MN's other lakes all together inside of URL. Hillman's road alone is 50+ different reports everyday.

KellyP and myself do not "guide" per say in the winter. We run sleeper houses on the lake and it keeps us plenty busy.

I guide during the open water season and early ice for pike.

Yep... those sleepers keep Jon and Kelly pretty busy... and when they have a free minute, they are busy babysitting me!!!

Good Luck!

Where did you go Labs? I went over for more soup today and nobody was around! Thought about busting into your shack and stealing the Swiss Cakes rolls you had stashed.

You know if you don't feed us we will hide the Labshack again. \:\/

They kicked me out and pirated my house! I think I fed them too much food and they want their wives to believe they really were ice fishing! grin.gif

Next time if the waether moderates a little, we'll get the grill fired up! Screw the soup! Time to grizzle down some hunks of meat!

Good seeing you and Jim and Kelly and Patsy...and.... grin.gif

See ya in a couple weeks! It feels good to be back!

Good Luck!

Is Jim your grandpa, Jonny? I've been reading a book based in Waskish (in the 60's), and Bill Callies, the game warden stated a couple times that a Jim Petrowske was a good friend of his.

Very cool. I'm not a Waskish regular, and don't know much about the history of the town. Did you know Bill Callies? If not, does your grandfather ever speak of him?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
