Started at the point on the WI side just south of 94 where there is a big "private beach" sign and a little tiki bar looking thing. Caught 1 decent walleye on cranks here. Then fished the humps out in front of beach on the WI side between 94 and catfish bar. Pulled in 1 keeper eye and a few drum using bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses in 20-25' water.

Made it down past the kini to the flats in front of the state park launch around 11ish. Pulled in 4 saugers, a bunch of spotted catfish(? is that what they are called??), and a few more drum on the same rig in about 22-24' water. Also managed to get 4 decent bluegills that we kept.

Anyone else have any luck?

I hit the river early as usual and I was off by 9, started infront of the buffs park picked up two eaters before sun up and added one more around 7ish, caught a mix bag also heavy on the cat side, worked my way back down towards steamboat caught one really nice smallie but couldn't seem to find any eyes after 8 but there's always tomorrow, I'm planning on being on the water early again in the morning

Fog so thick you can cut it with a knife, thank God for gps else it would've been tough to go any place. It was so so did manage to get one dandy eye which I released (24 1/2) and a few smallies no sheeps today, left the river by 9:30 red lund

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
