I am braving the cold today by watching the Pro-Bowl in my warm house with a cold beer.

Good luck out there if you go! Be safe.

I went out from 8-1 today.Actually was not bad out there.The only frost build up i had was on the inside of my tub where it was facing the -40 wind.The thinsulate material is well worth the extra money to me.The carp were hanging around my camera sitting on the bottom right in front of it.

A little off topic but i survived the ice-fishing contest on Le Homme Dieu in Alexandria yesterday, got out of the the truck at 11:30am with the truck gauge reading 8 degrees and sat in my chair trying to fish until 3:00pm then got back in the truck and the gauge read -5 degrees, and with the wind howling in was absolutly brutal. No fish were caught in the group of 16 but it was money well spent and went towards a good cause.

I was out Saturday morning, it wasnt to bad. I had full intentions on going out Sunday morning, but I over slept. Then figured I would go out in the afternoon, but decided to watch football, hockey, and basketball. I figured there is going to be plenty of days to get out on the ice yet this year, the way the weather is going.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
