SNOW??

I hear it's snowing back there in the my lovely home state. Too bad I'm still in Iraq, although I will be allowed to come home on R&R leave before too long. How much are we getting? Does anyone have a digital cam that can snap some pics for me. email to jeremy.c.hinton@us.army.mil

Almost forgot.....please give your prayers to the soldiers recently killed in the helicopter crash. those soldiers were headed home for R&R leave. I realize there are people killed here everyday...but the circumstances are special with that crash.

Thanks,
SGT Hinton

Jeremy,
2" in Buffalo. There are still green leaves on the shrubs and low plants. Enough cover that the streetlights reflect into the house now at night and everything is bright and visible. Cats can't hide anymore.

The snow fence is up in Monticello at the park, and I'm taking the kids there today to try sledding the hill. Yesterday when the kids threw snowballs into the lake, they didn't melt right away - ice can't be far away.

Very little breeze today. The sky is that grey-white color of coconut milk - that color that promises we won't see the sun today - but it probably won't snow any more, either. It's hard to even think of it as clouds - when it doesn't seem to have a beginning or end.

Winter is moving in on quiet feet this year.

Do what we need you to do. We'll be here when your Freedom Bird lands you back home.

Blessings,

Rob

Jeremy,
Those pics are from the river north of Sartell...lot's of water to experiment with presentations. On those outing's we were pitching plastics (mostly super doos) to rip-rap. The walleyes & big northerns were right in with the smallies. Let me know....2004 should be another great year on the river. Take care...Nav

Jeremy,

All our snow is gone. Drew, Myself and our Dad went out to Morris last weekend. One last time before the season ended to see if we could get some ducks. Man there was tons of them flying but they wouldnt come sit down. Drew ended up shooting two of them. I ended up missing a ton of them and our Dad pretty much slept the whole time. We did have 2 Trumpeter Swans land in our decoys. That was really cool to see. They sounded like a small plane coming in for a landing.

Take it easy man.
Cullen

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
