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

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.
