I hate to sound like a broken record, but I have to give credit where credit is due!!!!! I took the whole family up for the weekend....2/29 and 3/1 and 3/2.....fished out of the Petrowske's luxury 6 man chateau....what a palace......caught fish sporadically during our days there....managed a few slabboes in the 15" to 15.5" range.....C & R about 60 walleyes and 2 BIG LEAGUE PIKE 36+" and 37+".....what a treat....my bride was very pleased not only with the fishing, but with the accommodations and friendly and thoughtful service....my kids had an absolute blast AGAIN.....if I can squeeze it in, we're going to try to get another trip in....heck, Jon's stories were worth the trip....Jon, the pix are in your e-mail box! Feel free to use 'em wherever!

We were there on the same dates and fished out of one of Johnny's 4 man houses. Johnny was great. On Saturday he saw that we were doing some drilling and hole hopping and proceeded to just plow us a big circle without us even asking him. He just said "That'll make the walking a little easier" as he drove by on his way out. Caught 5 craps, a number of walleyes and a few pike. All craps on red glow demons. When they wanted it they came after it! Thanks, Johnny and Kelly, always a great time.

Your kids just seem to attract nice pike. cool.gif That's good that your better half enjoyed it. When I heard URL rookie I was concerned.

I can tell you one thing Perch Hunter and his older brother Blake (whom has also been pictured on FM with big fish) are some effecient anglers. I seldom see them sitting still. Always jigging, checking bait so on and so forth.

We are starting to see a upward trend. Each night the reports get a little better and a little better. I think/theorize once the snow drops it might just go nuts.

      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.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      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!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
