Fishin Envy!

I was flipping through the TV channels for something to keep my mind off of ice fishing today and what do I find, Babe Winkelman and his friend Jerry from Hill City fishing for slab crappies on Upper Red Lake and eating Johnsonville brats. I believe that this was the show that they shot at Morts Dock last spring but I did not see any mention of it in the credits. Man all it did was make things even worse especially when a couple of friends (soon to be X) called to let me know that they had been on the lake all afternoon catching slabs and lots of walleyes and plan to head back out again in the morning. Oh why did I let everyone talk me out of going fishing this weekend? crazy.gif

I saw Babe and his friend fishing on URL 2 years ago on TV.. could be the same one or did they say it was produced last spring? well anyways they did catch alot of fish, and they had a small plane fly over the ice houses and taped it and holy smokes, there were alot of ice houses, more than what has been out there at once this year! Maybe its the new shoot they made? I missed that show! I would love to see it again.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
