HEY BUCK,

NORMALLY THAT IS COMING INTO SOME OF OUR BEST ICE FISHING., I'M THINKING IF STAYS COLD (WHICH ITS SUPPOSE TO) WE MAY HAVE EXCELLENT ICE CONDITIONS, THE ICE HAS IMPROVED ALOT IN THE LAST WEEK., I THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT TIME TO COME UP TO RAINY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey B&D,

Arguably one of my favorite months to fish is march and april. I think it is because fisherman start there preperation for open water, and lose focus or motivation for hard ice angling. Big pike and walleyes are to be had late ice. The other nice thing is you don't have to contend with the brutal cold typically that time of year.

As for the Outdoor weekly article I'm on this week. I would say that they will likely use your photo's as long as it is a nice quality picture. Most publications don't like stringer shots or piles of dead fish on the ice. Nice clean shots with no blood... and of course BIG FISH! Ha! Good Luck! Look me up when your up, or pass a message on through the Fishing Queen!

Hey Rainydaze looks like they put it in the paper...but I wasn't the only one with a fish from woodys fairly reliable guide service! Looks like Dave Genz got the cover, but none the less still some nice eyes from rainy going to be in the paper.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
