I heard about this crappie bite years ago. I just get too busy with work in March since I am landscape designer. I was always told late February into March in Isle Bay. Its a very distinct spot. Hopefully this will be my year up there.

Lubey, maybe we should head up there sometime together. I know the spot I just need someone to force me to go up there. I dont like traveling that far to the big water to fish solo. We're both on the same side of town.

      probably eagles if fishing. I think the fultures like highways. :):)

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
