Well me and a buddy went out today for our first legit varmint hunt. Had a beautiful big fox come in to the cottontail distress after 2 minutes at our second set. Came to about 10 yards in front of my buddy, and before he could get a good shot with his .22 (he figured all we'd see is squirrels) it decided something wasn't right and started trotting away. He shot and then I shot on the run but missed. First predator ever called in!

Driving back home, we saw two more sitting out in a field by a grove of trees. We turned around and went down a minimum maint. road about 500 yards away and snuck through another grove of trees. Got on the distress call and within 3 minutes we had one heading our way. Got to about 30 yards before the .22-250 put her down. First varmint ever...talk about exciting! I'm hooked!

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
