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!!

      You can say that again.    I've only heard you can't stay in the same place for more than 2 weeks.  I've seen people camping on some way back forest service roads.  They didn't look like designated camp sites to me.   How long/how often do you plan to go?  Tent or camper?

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.
