When you use the services of Jonny, Kelly, and Patsy, you are in for a first class operation.

This past weekend some guys and myself rented a sleeper from these guys. Holy Cow!!! This house was huge enough to play hockey in!! It's clean to boot!!! It was one of the few I've rented that didn't smell like rotting fish, or a fart, or some kind of science experiment. They come out and check on you often, show you a few fish catching tricks, and of course warn you about the URL seals.

Part of a great weekend.

What an awesome time. Anyone thinking about hitting URL should really ring up the Waskish Minnow Station. To say you will be pleased with their services is an understatement.

Legal disclaimer- Jon, just cuz you can, doesn't mean we actually did play hockey in the fish house. grin.gif

Quite a few crappies and even more walleye.

No pike or perch, but Jon knew we wanted crappie and eyes so that's where he put us.

The DNR officers.

and to add to the post about Kelly and Jon, They are the best. I was the guy holding everything up with my truck not starting, they went completely above and beyond to help me get it started, and never acted as if I was inconveniencing them, I cant thank you enough for all your help. They also put us on some fish on friday night we caught 2 perch 2 crappies 1 northern and around 15 walleye, then after the sun came up all we got the rest was like 4 walleye 1 northern, but all in all was a Great weekend, all thanks to Kelly and Jon, I would recommend them every time. Thanks again!!

Boiler the house looked fine, we did find claw and scratch marks where Bob was sitting. \:D

Spinner fisher, its not like we haven't been broke down on the lake before, bad place to have a dead rig. I'm just glad we got your rig going and didn't have to drag it to town.

Spinnerfisher, sorry I kept dozing off while talking to you but I'm middle aged and slipping into old age while trying to do a young mans job. Sometimes there is just no gas left in the tank. tired.gif

Boiler Guy- You were not too far from us, but it was way to cold to venture over. Sorry man maybe next time. We ended up with 100 walleye's, 20 crappies, 2 northerns,and one perch on Scott's circle! grin.gif

Labs- nice to meet you and glad you guys got that car started.

I posted details in update posts.

Woodman, it was nice meeting you too. Did your buddies ever find Ludlow Island? grin.gif Me thinks they probably didn't want any more stories form Jon and I.

Getting that car started was easy for me... just drive Jonny over to their car, hand him my genrerator and let him hook up their engine block heater... "DOH crazy.gif 'I' knew we should've hooked that up!". Couple hours later, I guess she fired right up. Give Jonny a warm bowl of soup when he brough the generator back and all was good. Note to everyone on the big lake! Don't point your grill into the wind when you park your vehicle!

On a weekend like that, I was almost glad I had a diesel... I think it ran for 40 outta 48 hours! But boy it was always nice and warm when you jumped in it! Which wsn't all that bad as the thermometer on the dash showed -24 degrees! blush.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs- They asked me where it was and I told them St. Cloud. grin.gif There were so full of it that night, that I shut my talky off so I could fish in piece and quiet. My dad caught a huge crappie and eye when he was out for the afternoon. It was great to get him back ice fishing again. My generator sure paid for itself this weekend, best Christmas gift I got! grin.gif

Truck ran lots due to everybody driving it to go to the bathroom, and to shore to get stuff. I should have charged them for the use of it so I can fill it up again. The wife was shocked at how much gas was left when I got home.

Great weekend and lots of memories for URL! whistle.gif

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
