Bony:

 

Are you coming up to the Lake this year?  I just received my leeches, and they are better than the past years (IMO).  Just reminding you if you want to order some for your trip.

Hello AWarrior!

Yes, we will be up for two weeks again!  I have looked at the leech site and am tempted.  Think I could have them sent to the resort without hurting the owner's feelings?  Otherwise, I have to drive with them in the car from the Twin Cities...........and my wife may worry about spilling.........

Can't wait.

I would have them shipped to you at the resort.  Tracy and the Gang would not mind.  Put your cabin on the mailing address. You can order them one day, and they will be delivered the next.  I remember a few years back someone that was staying 2 weeks had a battery charger shipped up. 

Driving with them in the car will not hurt your wife--they are in a plastic bag, in a cooler.  My wife even lets me bring them from here, and it is about 7 hours in the vehicle(once they are in no one thinks of them).   With a little ice they make the trip very well.  I have never lost any

We are up a week early this year due to graduations--will be able to tell you where not to fish by the time you get there.  Hope to see you!!

We start June 11th this year.  Are you a week earlier?  If so, have a great time.  We will probably pass you  between the resort and the Twin Cities as you are leaving.

Uncle Boney:

 

We will be up on the 10th (a week later this year)

If you want, I can bring leeches up for your second week.

Sounds like you have a great deal--payment in beer or tequila--oh boy--that is why they invented the 5 gallon pail !

See you up there.  Looking forward to all of your fishing tales. Fishing has to be better this year.

My sisters and their family will be up on the 10th to join us (Zenny is my brother-in-law), staying in Moose.  We should be okay on leeches; last year the one leech order lasted two weeks.

 

I am sure we will be well prepared to tell you where the fish are not after our first week (I stole that line from you).  Yes, hoping for a more productive year and more walleyes in the pan.

If you can tell me where the fish are not--that will help.  I will fish where you have not been fishing.(ha)  That must be where they are--everywhere you and I do not fish.

Ice is out already which is good.  I hope the trip will be more rewarding this year--looking forward to it already.  I changed the line on one of my rods last night!!

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
