Just wondering if any of you guys have been out in the area for grouse. I have seen two here at the resort, and I have a very excited 11 year old son to get out for some birds. Just wondering if some of you have been out.

I have a 9 mile drive on a dirt road to get to my cabin. when I came in Friday at about 5:30 I counted 7 grouse on the road. My guess is the woods is loaded with them. By the way walleye fishing was terrific in spite of the heavy wind and all the musky fisherman running around.

Keep your hook sharp, Tadpole

Doug, I am on the Tower end, I have about a 1/2 mile drive to my place and the other day when I came in I had 5 (Partridge) Grouse sitting on the road. I had to actually slow down and let them cross the road. Looks like it might be a good year for the birdies, I probaly will get more "birdies" in the woods than on the golf course.

Must be nice to own a resort. No work to do, make lots of money, and have all the time in the world just to hunt! Oh by the way, the boy and I saw 22 chichens and shot 10 sunday, on the Holms road.

PT-

Ah yes!! The life of the resort owner. I am free to work any 12-16 hours a day I choose. I don't have the worries of what to do on Saturday for 22 weeks out of the year, because Saturday is not a day off, for that matter, no day is a day off. However, I am most blessed, first of all to be able to do what I love, and that I love what I do. I once heard that making your vocation you avocation is the key enjoying your work. Once again, I feel very blessed, and I am thankful everyday for what I do for a living.

Oh, and thanks for the tip on Holms RD. Might get up there sometime between afternoon bon bons and evening crumpets.

Doug

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks
    • Borch
      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
