From what I understand, Paul was working on doing something the second weekend in Feb at Appledorns. This is just what I heard, not confirmed.

Paul will be having it out of Appeldoorn's on the east side of Mille lacs on the 8th and 9th of March.

A little Robin told me they had picked up a few 14" plus piggie perch.

Paul will be here to give you details later.

Alright here are the details to the 1st Annual Piggy Perchin' Party \:D

Location: Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay

Dates: March 7th, 8th, and 9th

What is this: This is a chance for all FM'ers to get out and do some Piggy Perchin' together. This is not a tournament, just a chance to get together, fish, and have some fun.

We will have a Grill out near where we are fishing for all to use. We will also pretty much be fishing as a group, or at least in the same general area. Whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome. This is going to be a ton of fun, as are all of these gatherings, so don't miss out on this one.

Call us now to book your spot for this event. Rate is $35 per person, per night, based on double occupancy. We will also have spots available if you have a bigger group.

Paul are those rates for shore cabins or fish houses. If for shore cabins is that the rate for any cabin?

That rate is for shore cabins as all fishhouses need to be off of the lake by the last day of February.

Here are pictures from Tony Roach's trip today. Looks like the Perch bite has picked up a bit \:\)

How limited is the lodging? In other words, how fast will it fill?

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Not on mine either!!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
