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

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
