Was just working on some ice fishing stuff on my website tonight. Kinda reminded me about Medicine for some reason. I can't wait to start yanking gills and crappies out there this winter! What a fun little lake! Can't say that I've ever had a "bad" day out there on the ice.

Aquajoe.. I wont fish medicine regularly until sometime this fall.. I'm too busy chasing catfish, and the sturgeon season is coming real quick. I will be spending a couple weeks fishing Lake Erie and the Allegheny river very soon too. I'll be hitting medicine more late next month... when I'm not sturgeon fishing.

Fishing cats and sturgeon all the time.. everything else just looks like... bait!

Hey Med,

I was out for the first time in months last night and the fish were NOT snappin'! But it was as pretty an evening as you could ask for and I was just glad to be out again.

Hey Med and Lee,

I went out tonight and it was real nice. Not too much traffic! Fish were kind of hanging tight, cool.gif probably because of the storm last night. Caught a few nice ones. Looking forward to fall!!

Hey Lee! I've been meaning to get a hold of you for some time, but it's been an insanely busy summer for me. I started classes last week so I'll have more time to get out now. grin.gif

I figured you might be a touch busy. I've been runnin' hard myself - fixing up a cabin north of Bemidji. I actually left my boat up there for a month or so, but started jonesing for good old Medicine and brought it back down!

My first time on the lake today and who do I meet, MedicineMan. Nice to chat with you a little. We did get a few bass today and one smaller pike in an unconventional way grin.gif, trolling cranks in 10-14 feet of water. The sunfish were pretty aggressive today, I think we pulled in 5 on cranks too.

Rosspj59, it was nice meetin' ya! It kinda sucked that the storms chased everyone off. But I got into some nice Bass so I'm happy. grin.gif

Just wondering, but i know med has some nice white craps, but i've never gotten into 'em. I've caught tons of blacks, especially in the winter, just never had luck w/ the whites, and i hear they average about 2" bigger. Any tips, especially once the ice sets in?

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.
