I'd guess that it takes an hour and a half to get to Red from the south end of Leech.

Jiggle...It only seems like more than an hour and a half for you...The extra time it takes you, is time spent in the URL triangle! grin.gif Did you get the jiggle (wiggle) auger taken care of? Only a couple more weeks till you can start the "shakes". You goin out with the orange army this weekend? Give me a call...we need to stop in the "office" one more time to get warmed up for the W.W.. I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel, only a couple more jobs to complete,so should be available depending on your schedule. Give a call...Ken

I mileaged it to Leech the other day from here (Blackduck) and it was 40 miles to Walker. From here to WW it's 30-35 miles, but that's a quicker drive with nothing imbetween...that URL triangle just sucks you right in and pulls you there pretty quick grin.gif

And the triangle: When it sucks you in, does it deposit you 75 years later at the same age you were when you found it? Does is suck up your Fish Trap, Chevy, Strikemaster and puke them out at the W.W.?

Wouldn't that be a hoot? KellyP goes out on the ice in that old red pickup, loses his bearings, and comes back in the 22nd century. The W.W. is still there, and his tab is still at $400, and there still are people around who remember the legend of Kelly. grin.gif

stfcatfish,
You are full of bad news again. You're suggesting that this is the 21st century. You are so silly! :-) A bunch of us headed out there centuries ago, are we still there?? If you are correct this is all a figment of our imagination. This crappie thing never happened!!!!! shocked.gif
If that is the case I hope none of us ever wakes up and this continues in our dreams. smile.gif
In all due honesty it is the night before deer season. My little girl is back for opening day once again. About 10 years ago she quit being my little girl and became one of my best friends but I refuse to admit to myself how many years have passed by. To me she is always gonna be the little girl that needs help lacing her boots in the morning.
After an evening and early morning retelling all the good and bad stories of the years gone by we have come to the realization that all the big bucks we have taken were after 10:30 in the morning and there has not been one taken at first light. So opening day for us will start at 10:30 as that is when we have had our best luck. We might not be there at first light when a nice buck passes by but we'll have a good time at 10:30. One of these years we will have to try this first light thing but why waste a fun day by getting up too early??

Kelly, I hear you. My girls are 14 and 12, and live with their mother, and every time I see them they look so much older. And I suppose I do, too. We're supposed to be wiser with age, but I don't see much evidence of that. grin.gif

And if you're in the triangle, you've got the company of thousands of others from the URL city on the ice.

Have fun with your best friend. cool.gif For me, deer season will be with the rellies outside LaCrosse on Thanksgiving weekend.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
