We had 4 inches in Duluth, but most of it is gone with the rain today (9-30). I heard on the radio that Ely got 7 inches. Everything we got was wet slush.

The snow varied greatly here at Kab we had 4 inches, and or had at least 5-7. Everything has melted for the most part, however it has snowed on and off today, with no acculmulation. If it gets cold the snow might stay. For what its worth, fishing is fairly good down by the mouth of Ash River and a few other spots. Conditions are however miserable.

Just got back to St. Cloud from the cabin. Yeah the snow up there was gone but we had a great time getting ready for the opener next weekend. We already have 2" of snow today. Next weekend looks to be promising as the bucks are already making scrapes. Anyway good luck to all the hunters.

Well its snowing pretty good today the are is expecting maybe 3-5" by the weekend, no meltdown in site, looks like mid 20's for highs. Don't expect t-shirt weater like the past.

Its stacking up to be one of the best lookin openers in a long time. The bucks are really on the move, I don't think we are in full rut, but close.

Godd luck to you, Kab is still open for fishing, but ice might move in towards weekend, except at the river openings.

Larry K,
How did you do on Camp 90 for the opener. I have a cabin on Gannon.

ICatcher, We did extremely well. We got 22 deer for 15 guys. We could have shot more but that was enough meat for us. No real monsters but some nice average bucks. Our neighbors didn't do very well though. They had one deer for 6 guys and the other neighbors only had a few deer for around 8-10 guys. But they had a 14 pointer that was a dandy. The guy shot it in the leg and trailed it for 9 miles before it tired out and they got close enough to finish it off. LUCKY for snow. They also walked across the Ash River. The day after it was open. How about you?

LarryK,
We did well. 5 bucks for 7 guys for 4 days. Passed on 4, all 8 pointers. We got 1 140 class buck that we trailed for 2 1/2 miles. Hardly no blood but we kept after it. Searched for hours at a time in some spots. One spot we found a little blood and searched the entire area for about 2 hours and the whole time he was laying about 20 yards from where we were. Just didn't see him. He was still alive.Walked up to him and poked him with the gun. Didn't move. Touched his rump with my foot and he jumped up and squared off on us. Thought he was gonna charge us. Finished him with a good shot. Exciting highlight of the trip. Going to LOW on the 19th. Can't wait.

Icatcher, What a story, thats one to tell the grandkids someday. Good Luck up at LOW. I won't be going up there until after the New Year. But hoping to get to Red for a few days to get some slabs. Unless we can get out on Kab then I'll be going there instead. Larry

LarryK,
We are on the corner of the Gannon and Ash River. We can go by boat or we can come in the back way on atv's. I take it you guys come in the back way? Do you know the little falls guys?

I think so. They are the guys that used to camp in tents for a number of years aren't they. They built a cabin down on the river bottom. I think I know which cabin is yours. Did you have a kid recover his forkhorn buck on your land this year? My cabin is the two story with gray vynl siding before the gate.

LarryK,
Yes they use to camp in tents. We have a cabin right across the Gannon Creek from them. I'm not sure if we had someone recover a deer on our land. I don't remember that. But I'm usually gone all day hunting. Nice cabin you have. I'll have to stop in and say hi someday on the way in.

The reason I asked about the kid recovering his deer is because it was my younger cousin. He was hunting on the ridge that I hunt. (ridge on the left just before you go down the hill to the creek) He said the guy and his kid gave him a ride around to his four-wheeler after and helped drag it out. What a nice guy. But I talked to my cousin and he thinks the guy said he's from Sandstone. Yeah our cabin is pretty decent we had to add on to it in 97 because our family has gotten so much bigger. The first part was built in 63. Its kind of funny but there are 7 owners in it and its all family. Even our deer hunting group of 15 is all family. But it can only get one bigger as my 11 year old will begin hunting next year. He can't wait. Another one of the owners and one of my cousins are going up there tomorrow for four days deer hunting. One with a bow and the other with a muzzleloader. I'll have to let you know how they do. Feel free to stop in any time I'm there I'm sure I'll have a beverage in the fridge for you.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required. 
    • eyeguy 54
      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?
    • mrpike1973
      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
