I'll just miss you... arriving on the 9th (staying through the 16th). Staying on 8th (&9th & 10th) Crow Wing. Has been six years since our last vacation to PR (or any where for that matter). CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU how excited I am.

And, the more I think about it, who needs a resort cabin? I'm just gonna LIVE in my boat, out on the lake!! <lol>

Loadin' up on Scum Frogs, Senko's, Gulp's, swimmin' jigs... gotta replace some skirts on my spinner-baits, and buzz-baits, replace line, etc. etc. Man, am I pumped!!!

Thanks Jonah. I saved those emails! I don't know how much in & out of the water stuff I'll be doing. If fishing is good on 8/9/10, I'll probably just spend the week there. On the other hand, I might try fishing some other lakes that have public access AND had also been on my "count-down" list of lakes: 5/6/7 Crow Wing, Spider, Crooked, Big/Little Mantrap, etc.

MIGHT try to get over to Skunk too... too early to tell, but the way I look at it, time spent going from lake to lake is time that I could spend FISHING! <g>

I'll be thinking of you hitting the books, while I'm out fishing! On the other hand, keep an eye out for those young co-eds!! blush.gif

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

      Sounds like fishing has been good, that's always a great thing to hear.  Is there much snow on the lake away from the roads or pretty much impassable?  I can't believe no one has asked if we need an extension yet...a remembered frequent post back from the old days. ha ha.

      It’s been over a week since I was out there last marked a ton of fish but but was really slow. Any improvement in the bite?

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.

      The plan  this morning has again changed from plan a to plan b as yesterday afternoon.  The red  baron broke her front drive shaft, taking out the transmission pan to boot. Darn the luck! I may of heard it clunking if I had the exhaust fixed. Hindsight  I try and always look at these things as they are ment to happen for a reason and its part of the business.
       Sunday night after the Vikings game when I headed back on the lake, mother nature has pretty much taken out my 1/2 mile or more side road to the houses. When I was visited Dan and mel Robbie was on the phone with there friends that were on the way up and they were going to go meet them to bring them out in a car? So funny as they had no clue the road/trail was completely drifted in?  I had to plow a new trail to get the to Buddy Hillmen's Highway which was not drifted in. When I got back to old Minnesota I was standing there visiting nad look at the rattle wheel . For some reason they did not have it down so I said, Hey I'm fishing this one and put a minnow Tail hooked on this huge big pink banana looking jig. With in 3 minutes I had the big one of the day 18 1/2. Last night Robbie beat it out with a dandy just under 20.
       Last night the hammer and I went to check on snowbear Joshes customers so we took his truck out there, wow what a treat to have good heat in a truck. I'm so use to being in a cold truck I was baking in there. The family he has in his grand ice castle are having a grand time on a grand lake. Scott and Jen were playing a  game with the kids. Olivia and Conner. I took a pic of the game as it looked like a fun game for our grand kids. Grama Joe was worn out from all the fish they had caught I think. Grandpa Mike was watching all the lines. really nice family.
       joshes other customers called at the bewitching hour to see what the slot size was so they must of started to get some action. I'll swing in and check on them this morning.
       Jonny boy spent Monday night in florida and got his 4, crazy any other year and the house would of been burned out after 3 days. He was going to sleep in montana last night so it will be interesting to see how he does as there have been  at least 20 fish caught out of that house in two nights. The guys were also doing real good in north Carolina and that little 2 man sleeper seems to have some good ju ju when it come to catching fish. Phil sure built a cozy  house.
       Hoping to have all our parts by some time Friday to put the red baron back on the ice, It sure is nice having Jonny boy be able to help as I can not work like that anymore. Barny from Kellier is going to braise up the pan as its a specialdeep pan due to it being a fire rescure truck before it became a lake truck.
      The last thing is last nights sunset was spectacular, it just went on and on from a gorgeous pink, in to a dark orange glow. I got a couple pics I posted on our facebook page Cookies on upper red lake.

      He guys, just wanted to share a video of my kids fishing for crappie and sunfish. Be awesome outdoors!  
    • leech~~
      Thanks, for the info.  I'll just look at the Steelhead and Looper on my wall to refresh my memory!
    • oilandwater
      Have heard of very few.  An occasional rainbow (looper and steelhead, make sure to learn the difference) mixed in with the catch in Two Harbors, along with lake trout near the bottom on the right day.  I've seen a few cruising under the ice in McQuade, but pretty slow there.  Rainbow action will pick up as spring progresses.
