Gervais hasn't been a topic for awhile. Others have been out there once or twice though.

G-man, glad to see you are still out there and hit the forum. We still need to hit some open water together before the hard water season is upon us.

I would like to hit our ice fishing lake for some open water pannies, pike, and bass one of these nice fall days.

With fall upon us many of the anglers start getting in hunting mode and fall bite can be fantastic.

Hey Mr Pike. I've been to one of the ice fishing lakes last weekend for the first time out in several weeks and did very well on numbers...only a few decent size. Give me a shout sometime soon!

Mykal, glad to hear from you !!!!!! I can not believe the summer is almost over and we have spent limited time on the water together.

I hope you have all your spots marked on Mille acs to get old man pike on the lake for some fall pigs pulling the cranks.

Hey Andy is getting married. The wedding is next weekend. He and his wife to be bought a nice place just outside of St. Cloud. He now has all the space he needs for all his fishin and hunting toys. One really neat feature at there new place is a gazebo that is built into the deck. It is fully wired for watching a game or playing poker.

I have been fishing a lot more local this year then in years past with a few trips to the cabin and few weekends on mississippi chasing smallies.

Andy also has discovered this great little walleye lake for ice fishing a little North of St. Cloud for ice fishing. There is one piece of sturture in the middle of the lake and the eyes come up at dusk and attack.

Anyway we need to hook up my friend and catch up. I assume you have been hitting Mille acs quite a bit and getting close to guide status on the mud and sand smile.gif

I hit the lake the other night from 330-930 targeting muskies most the night and never even saw a fish. Before calling it I took a couple trolling passes and picked up a little walleye.

I'm still around. My wife is almost ready to pop. Any time now.

I got out this weekend with my father. He came up and visited for the weekend and brought his boat. We hit Minnewashta twice. Did alright, mainly around the rockpile. Caught a nice variety. Nothing huge.

I'd second the 'we still need to get out together'.

Mykal- I still got checking out your boat on Mille for fall walleyes in the mind. I just hope I can make it work.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
