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.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
