Three years of snapped lines, reels freezing up, more follows than a musky fisherman and the one where we both thought we had it, and neither of us did and it went down the hole is over!! Finally brought in a fighting Laker late in day Saturday. The wind was whipping, the tip ups were burried under drifts, I thought I hooked my Marcum cord, but it was a Laker! Fought like a SOB but I brought it home! Over all what a great trip, glad we got two days of nice weather before all heck broke loose. Barracuda broke his long streak and finally brought some Lakers home too. Thanks to all the FMers for tips on stinky bait last week. We stopped at the General in Duluth and they had what we needed and some good advise. Can't wait to get back up there next year. Only 363 days and counting!

sorry, sorry, sorry. Sizes ranged from a couple pounds to close to five. Last week I was looking for smelt, herring, cisco's. The advisers recommended the General in Duluth. I think next year we'll skip live bait all together and stick with frozen, dead smelly stuff. Thanks for the congrats! I was pretty down after a fighter snapped the leader on a tip up after a long tiring hand over hand fight at the bottom of the hole, so when I pulled one up, it was even sweeter.
