I was wondering why I felt a breeze. Yesterday morning the morning temps were in the low fortys up north. The smell of fall is in the air. Driving to work I don't know if I'm imagining it or not but the trees look to be changing colors. Betting it has to do with the dry weather we have had the last month and a half. This morning on the way to work there were puddles every where. Rained from mid-night till this morning. Ground is so dry the water is just puddling up. I have everything ready to go in the garage already. Just need to knock my arrow and see the buck I have been seeing all summer.

we were up at Itasca last weekend camping and there was a tree or two on the wilderness drive that we biked by changing colors.

I was just in the BWCA this weekend and happened to see a few trees that appeared to be changing already. Sad that it's been that dry. Does get you in the fall spirit though!! Football and hunting, it's an unbeatable combo.

We are now down to 26 days and can't believe summer is gone and we are prepping for Hunt 06'. Several of the oak trees in my neighborhood are starting to drop their acorns.

Isn't this a little early for this to happen? Does that mean that the deer will be keying in on the acorns or will that be long gone time Sept. 16th comes around?!?

If I remember right, I don't think we had a real good Acorn drop last year but the year before was awesome!!! Hope we have a good acorn year as I hunt around a lot of oaks!!! WOW WE ARE GETTING CLOSE!!

Only 5 more sleeps for me. Elk and whitetail open the 28th Aug. It has been dry up here and I don't wish the farmers any bad luck but hope it doesn't rain for a couple of wks as I will be hunting a couple of watering holes deep in the bush. I was out there last weekend it looked promising but it did last year but the timbers showed up and run the elk out of the area.

I have never stuck an elk with the bow but lots of deer so hope to draw first blood this year on the elk.

I have been practising with the broadheads for a little over a month now and it feels good but I am sure the blood will get pumping if an elk shows up.

Good luck to all fellow archers this fall.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
