Hey Tim!

Definetly would love the company! I don't know when exactly but I will drop you an e-mail or post something when I plan on going. And you drop me a line if you think you might go too.

I'd like to get Daisy out at least a few times this winter and try to sharpen her and I up. I don't remember the guys name but I'll figure it out from the ad. How many game farms can be around Glendorado? I'll keep you posted. Thanks!

Hey Spinach!

Great! Sounds like a plan. Are you guys available at all during the week? Or are you strictly weekends? This next weekend I'm out of town; but the following weeks are fairly wide open. Looking forward to it! I'll e-mail you both when I figure out what I can do.

Hey Guys - sounds like it is time for a Glendorado Gang reunion. I was at the farm Friday afternoon. The farm is very huntable this time of the year. They have cut some new walking paths in the wooded area behind and north of the barn and all the boggy areas are frozen over and walkable. Only standing corn is to the southwest.

The birds are not has big as they were earlier in the season but the ones I saw Friday were decent in size and very good flyers. I can hunt during weekdays from 10:30 am until 2:00 pm.

When you call the office you will be talking with Mike. He takes appointments and manages the operation during the weekdays. When you call the cell phone number you will be talking to Rick, the owner. Let me know when you want to get together and I will try and make it...would be nice to get together and see how all the dogs have progressed since last fall!

Hey WW!

This Friday may work for me for a 10:30 to 2:00 hunt. I will check it out and re-post tomorrow. Would be great if you, Tim, Spinach, as well as anyone else interested could swing something on short notice.

Friday high 26 degrees, wind from southeast 8 mph and a chance for snow showers. Sounds like perfect pheasant hunting weather to me! Count me in for three birds. I drop the kids off at school at 9:00 am and can be at the farm by 10:15 am. I need to leave the farm no later than 2:00 pm to make it back to Woodbury in time to pick up the little rascals...who else is in? I will call Mike Wednesday with hunter and bird count. Glendorado was running a special earlier in the season - 10 birds for $100. Not sure if that is still valid or not...regular price is $12 per bird. Remember no scratch hunting allowed!

What the heck, I'm in for three as well. If its OK with you guys, I might just bring the video camera and not carry a gun. So if you know someone that would like to shoot, please feel free to bring them along. With these puppies coming I want to get some video of the dog working, to show potential puppy buyers what they are in for. What time do you guys want to meet up there?

Setterguy - bringing a camera sounds like a good idea. Thought Kenai was going to have a litter? How far along is she, when are the pups due? Hopefully a couple more of the Glendorado Gang will read this post and have nothing better to do that day and will join in on some fun. I plan on being at the farm around 10:15/10:30 am. Hey Tim, Spinach and BDR lets hear from you guys!

Well the breeding went well, got two breedings in. It didn't look good for the first couple days. She got pretty aggressive with him and he was reluctant, but we finally got it done. I am pretty sure she is pregnant, she has been getting a little bigger and acting like a total goof ball. The pups should be on the ground around the 7-10th of February, so she is still fine to hunt. Some say its actually a good thing to hunt a pregnangt female. Something similiar to reading to your unborn child I guess! See you guys there at around 10:30.

I didn't even bother asking BDR. I am almost positive he will be at or on his way to Winnie. There is probably some others with that conflict too...... Of course, you could get in a short hunt on the way up...... Hmmmmmm? wink.gif

PS I'll be there around 10:15.

Setterguy & MM - just got off the phone with Rick a few minutes ago and he said the farm was filling up fast for Friday. I ask him to save a field for us and that we would be there about 10:00-10:30 am. He had to raise his bird prices to $13 from $12 each. He explained that the law of supply and demand rules this time of year regarding game bird pricing. We still have room for a couple of more if anyone else is interested.

MM - we will dedicate the first bird to Drew, the second to Daisy and the third to you. Duty calls and family comes first and foremost. Maybe I'll bring the digital camera along and will post some pics over the weekend! I plan on at least one outing a month - weather permitting...hopefully we all can get together in Feburary.

      Set up deeper on rock reef for the rest of the weekend and only managed one fish (26" eye), missed a couple others. We wanted to stay deeper due to all the traffic on the lake. We did enjoy a good time at Fishing for Ducks, we saw a nice walleye pulled through the ice but it only measured 27.5". Talk about a bummer for that guy!
    • Jarrid Houston
      Roads to the islands always need to be taken very cautious and I would encourage going with someone who knows the area..  I believe they were shutting down the highway H extension due to this recent weather we just got?  Plenty of fish and opportune situtations in the bay.

      Another crazy busy weekend is in the books. I really enjoy giving out my fishing/what's happening on the lake reports but finding the time has been tough. To say its a grind is a understatement.
       I can tell you again as the season winds down I'm never ready for it to end, as I truly love being out there in my trucks, moving houses, plowing the  hillmen highway, giving advise, helping other fishermen when they do something silly, Driving into a snow bank, dropping there gun down a hole or any other important object like there keys. Every year all the workers seem to get a little grumpy as fighting mother nature, going from sun up to sunset takes a toll physically and mentally. It also seems I ruffle a few feathers every year and its never my intent  so I have to chalk it up as a long season. If I stepped on anyone's toes it sure was not planned or intended as all most every day plan a turns to plan b and c. Mother nature dictates where I go sometimes as well as any plowed roads that can make our job easier. The cookie shuffle worked very well this year as I tell everyone that gets lost in my maze of trails. I'm not a road engineer.
       Man did we get overwhelmed with wheel house's this past weekend, any fish coming from southwest had to go threw a gauntlet of hooks to find my fishermen.
       I had two wheel house's  that I set up at the end of the hillmens highway and was surprised how bad they did. I guess I should of went south not east? The nw road has gotten to much to maintain, there's one lone house out that way that will need a new trail made .
       Its all started Thursday as jonnny boy and I prepped for the weekend with Joe, Zack, Adam and   his crew arriving fro florida. Zacks birthday wish was fishing red lake, they had a blast. They went to westwind where they enjoyed a fish fry, plus they took home a few fish with a couple even getting a ride in florida fish house as we moved a small distance to put it on fresh ice for there last night sunday. Last year when they came we landed on the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie mother load? I think  they had dreams for a year of repeating that. Every year is different and again this year was no exception.
       Ben who proposed in old Minnesota to Shawna 8 years ago were in old Minnesota with there two adorable kids. Louie the fishing machine and his little sister Willa plus there friend Nelli.
       They had a blast also with Shawna getting a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie to boot. They also managed to take home a nice batch of upper red lake walleyes.
       Hunter and his two buddies were in north Dakota. It was slow but they also managed to take home a batch of fish.
       Charlie and Rizzo were in montana , They were very serious about there fishing and went home with there 8.
      Jeromy and his gal were in north Carolina Saturday, sunday . They also managed to get there 8.
       Sunday was a very tough day as we had all 5 houses re rented. I was planning on moving all of them so we battled mother nature the whole time as a ne wind with 2 inches of snow made it impossible to see. At one point I was getting sea sick as I struggled to see, With the sky, horizon and the lake all the same color. wow what a struggle.
       It took us  7 1/2 hours but we got every thing cleaned, moved.
       Mother nature has given us another bout of snow so tomorrow I will let every one know how the houses did the last two days as its time to check the fluids and fire up the fleet

      Figured I should report back... I fished prime time on Saturday morning and Saturday evening. No action. It didn't help that I forgot to grab the vexilar on the first outing, but it didn't help to have it on the second outing either! ha! Marked a few but couldn't get them to bite. Used a GPS chip to punch some holes over structure, but when I came back with the vexilar, they weren't quite as deep as I hoped. Thanks for the pointers BrianF

      Around this time last year this thread was started by @Royal_Dutchman. I got my trip planned for April but by the look of the extended forecast it's not looking to promising, especially compared to where it was at last year on Feb 23rd. 
    • osok
      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
