well the reason im going over there, besides the fact that the lake i have been fishing has almost shut down walleye wise, is that i want to win something go figure. anyways i would like to have someone come join me, if no one does, i will probably hit HOL or big D or maybe Cormorant lake, cuz im sick if the small lake im on, i would like to hang out with some FM'ers and just hang. i sold my Ice house toinght (awesome, now looking for my clam 6800) so if anyone has any space in a house, or just someone to stand outside thier house, im here.

That place is nuts. My brother-in-law goes every year. There are way too many people there, but he has fun every time.

Remember to be there at 5 am to get one of the holes along the edge, boy those fellers are nuts.

nuts is right,

I used to do the three day Muskies Inc tourney up by Leech every year with a buddy and we had fun as well as some very close calls on some big fish, but every year I'd analyze how much money we dumped into winging 12# lures for three days, sleeping in a tent in the rain and I figuired for just a little bit more, I could be drilling the eyes, smalleys, and muskies in Canada instead. Needless to say I quit going.

Very Nice! I'm gonna have to wait till next year to upgrade. That is a heck of a deal. Right now i'm saving up for some addtions to my boat, gotta be ready for the May 10 opener. I would definatly go with to Brainerd, wow, what a prize list they've got. But I gotta work, I'd like to hear more of the one that is in Park Rapids area. I'll have to check on line and see. If you hear of it let me know, I may have to burn some vacation time. Later, the Perch

Just called Park rapids game and they will be selling tickets at the legion till 12:30 so i think i will be going to that one too, except you can only fish one line so i see. anyone thinking about this one, i think i will be going, if anyone wants to drive or would ride with me over there i think thats what im gonna do. I dont know if anyone is firmilliar with that area over there but if you get the chance there is an AWESOME diner in Adely about 20 miles away from park rapids that is unbelieaveable. -- not a plug just a suggestion

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
