Yes I am. Zachary Paul Wells was born Sunday 1:06 pm December 1. He is 8 lbs 13 oz 21 1/2 inches long and perfect. Talk about a rush. Here is a difficult transition to fishing. Have you been out? Maybe we can plan an outing? I really have to emphasize planning now, but with a good heads up I could probably drill some holes and drown some minnows.

Congratulations!
Wow! Big healthy guy! I like the name too. Maybe Robert C, you, and myself can get out sometime before Christmas. You pick a lake/backwater and a time and we'll see if it works. Get sleep when you can and enjoy!

I'm game. My neighbor said I can borrow some of his rods. I'm curious to see what it's like to pull a fish from a hole. Erik has my e-mail, here it is for you, Mistermom.

I fished elk last year a few times with little success. I managed 1 18 inch walleye in two trips. The DNR sight shows good numbers of fish but I must not know the lake well enough. I also fishd elk in the summer and fall by boat and was skunked. I have caught some nice bluegills on Blue and some northerns. I am game for anything. Have you ever fished martin? Martin has treated me a lot like elk. I graph fish but have little success. Have you ever fished julia/briggs? My brother generally does ok on those lakes. Plenty of time to figure out where to go. Just thought I would throw out some thoughts. Have you heard from Robertc? I think he would fish in a barrel if that was the only option.

If I didn't know for a fact that the barrel was empty - I'd fish it.
I'm good for 21st for a 1/2 day or so. My Mom & niece fly in from Vermont afternoon of the 22nd, so 22nd is out, and I'll need to be home at a reasonable hour 21st, so I can make my house look like nobody lives there 8 days a week before my Mom shows up. I'm game for Friday night, too, if that's an option.

Glad Zach is a great baby.

I did fish Martin twice last year and caught a few small walleyes and a nice size crappie ice fishing. Open water I got skunked. I'd be willing to try Martin again. I think the place to go is on the NE end straight out from where the river runs out. I'd also try Blue. I thought we should make it close for you so in case you got to get home quick you can... My baby is yelling got to go. Later.

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
    • side_laker
      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports 
    • tview
      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
