well be goin up to the huntin shack up on the echo trail to cut wood for deer hunting. wondering how wet it is we got a 3 mile 4 wheel ride back and this time last year i think taking a jon boat would have been better. it was wet. just wondering if i will need my hip boots. heard there has been some rain and even some snow in the past week up around that area.

Things got pretty wet up there on Wednesday. We got plenty of rain, and then wind and snow on Thursday. The swamps are pretty full of the wet stuff, trails are muddy and the rivers are up.

Without divulging your exact location, what general area are you heading to? I was moose hunting in the Nina Moose area. The river went from needing to get out and walk the canoe in spots to a rushing torrent in less than 24 hours!

around the echo trail near byuck, i think thats how u spell it. last year the forestry came in with skidders and tore up our trails to our shack. it was so bad we ended up dumping 2 wheelers and coming back in the daylight to pull them out. i was told they put in a new trail for us hope it didnt get washed out.

Put down a bull on Saturday morning, and spent the next day and a half getting it back to the road. That was the first bull seen in 8 days of hunting. Others in the area also reported an extremely tough first week, with the heat and then the extreme snotty weather.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
