Don't know if you are staying right on Pimusche or nearby, but the water level is down on Pimusche making the public access pretty difficult to get out with your boat. So if you head out of the public, you need to make sure that the motor is up and there will be a couple of spots you will have to get your feet wet and do some pushing. Once out, concentrate along the shorelines (cabbage isn't out there like it normally is), bobber fishing using a jig tipped with a leech and you will find the panfish, also have had a few pike take the bait while bobber fishing the shorelines. Again, take it easy getting out on the water and at some of the humps. Good luck and let us know how you did!

Well caught alot of little northerns on little joe rigs with a minnow along the west shore and had a few big hits but nothing really to speak of. No walleyes at all and had about 15 crappies jigging just south of scenic hi way lodge on the other side of the cove with a jig and minnow. It was pretty windy which made it difficult. Look out up in the northern part of that lake. we hit a tree stump full bore and gave us a scare. The lake is down about 18 inches and we saw alot of stumps to the north. Night fishing produced only a few crappies. Drank alot of beer tho and had a good time. I will return next year. A frined of mine who goes to BSU says he has had good luck on bemidji with muskies. Has 15 on the year

Hey Trout, thanks for the report. With the water levels down we haven't been on Pimusche in about three weeks..it's pretty tough at the landing, and there are a few spots out there where you really have to watch it..but we've had good luck out there on the panfish.

      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.
