Sounds good! How do we get pictures posted? I have to get some film developed and then try to get them to a digital format. Don't have a scanner. Maybe a digital picture of a picture will work. I'll get them in as soon as I can. See Ya!

WW...a lot of photo development places now have digital options. you can get your roll of film developed and put onto a disk. I've used a mail-in company called Photoworks..out of Seatle, WA. I send my roll of film, they e-mail a link, and I have them all on-line to review and catalog a few day before the prints arrive in the mail. lots of good options out there.

would love to see some of your Ida catches!

While I don't have a picture because it happened years ago, I do have a true fish story that most people refuse to believe...

My dad and I were trolling on Lake Washington near Mankato. We were making our way back and forth between the two points looking for Northern. We were both using purple beetle spinners. I got a nice hit on mine, and my dad stopped the motor. As he was reeling in to net my fish, he got a hit as well! As my Northern came up to the boat, I could see he had two lures in his mouth - both purple beetle spinners. Apparently one wasn't enough for him - after he hit mine, he took my dad's too. Sure wish they had digital camera's back then!

OK, finally got about 3 different rolls of film into Walmart and had them put them on disc. Don't know how to put pics up. I will probably e-mail them to Rick and ask him to put them up on this post. Here is the description of pics the way that I have them labeled:

Picture "Ida 3" - Pair of 18"
Ida3.jpg

Picture "Ida 7" - 24.5" release
Ida7.jpg

Picture "Ida 9" - 19" and a 22" (22" relesed)
Ida9.jpg

Picture "Ida 11" - Pair of 20" (good picture they look bigger then that trust me)
Ida11.jpg

Picture "Ida 12" - 23" release.

Enjoy

Wavewacker,
your pics are up.

If everyone starts asking me to do this I won't have time to get my work done.

I highly recommend you click the FAQ links and learn how to post pics here yourself. you can use free servers like imagestation to load your pics on the web.

Thanks Rick,

Sorry for that. Didn't know that I could post pics myself (still don't actually but I will dig around in the FAQ link). Thank you very much however for putting them up.

July 5th, 2003. A hot sunny day. Hardly ideal for muskies. But Pete Wilson and his friend Hank Murphy from Phoenix, Arizona were going to give it a try. The two 14 year old anglers were the crew on board Kent Scheel's crestliner. Kent is the manager at Alexandria Outfitters, and a member of the Alexandria Guide Association.

"No way can you catch a fish with that!" one of the boys said as Kent produced a 10" jake bait. "We'll see" he replied. "You just hang on." About 20 minutes later, trolling in about 29 feet of water the thrill hit: "I think I've got one!" Pete stammered. And the fight was on. A beautiful 47 inch musky, well over 25 pounds. As Kent tried to net the beast, the handle of the net broke from the fish's weight. Resourcefully, he gripped the edges of the net and scooped trophy into the boat. The boys were 'totally psyched'! As you can see by the picture:

After a few pictures this beauty was released. A lasting Minnesota memory for the two teens from Phoenix!

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
