We are just starting the reservation book the past few days. Patsy has been calling some of the good, HARDFISHING customers so they get first shot at the dates they want before the book fills up. Didn't call you huh? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Kelly,

I really need to go to the bathroom... I mean right now! but I'm afraid to leave the phone... So if you call and I don't answer I'll be right back... I'm sure you just aren't to the letter "K" yet right? Right? grin.giftongue.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

Do you have a 3 man sleeper available on Oct 9th? grin.gif

I swear I'll go on a search and destroy mission for ya Kelly!

Or maybe I'll sit in the fish house and look at p*#n and catch all kinds of crappies.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, what to do.

I'll figure it out in March.

Foster has some houses ready to rent now. He says he's so broke that unless he rents something quick he'll have to start passing up the Miller and start drinking cheap beer. shocked.gif

For those of you that didn't hear what happened last year when gspman was here this is why I picked on him.

When he was coming up he posted that his group was bringing portables and wheelers and snowmobiles and they were really going to scout hard and find the crappies. I plowed them about 2 miles of trails further to the west for them to go scout on. When they got to the houses they took their boots off, put their feet up and cracked some beers. If my memory is correct they finaly got one portable set up about 50 feet from the house. grin.gif

From the looks of the book Patsy has only called the all female groups. confused.gif What the H+!!,,, but,,,that's not all bad either. grin.gif

Your such a good guide we don't need to scout! You always put us on the fish! smile.gif

We certainly didn't build a reputation for being good scouts last year. blush.gif However our ATV'rs kept getting stuck in slush holes and playing dualing winches pulling each other out. So that went down the tubes quick. I did drive about a half mile away & drilled a bunch of holes & didn't mark anything so back to the hard house. The clincher was that Patsy said she caught a couple out of our house the night before. I figured if Patsy fished for a short period of time and caught a couple we could fish hard for a long time and catch a bunch which is what happened. As for kicking off boots and drinking beer, there's no alcohol in our camp. All we drink is Hi-C.... Well... okay, we do drink a little beer... and have Bloody Mary's once in a while... and there's the occassional Brandy & 7... let's not forget the whiskey & cokes... ahem.

By the way. That portable was mine and I was catching fish. Even in that freaking rain storm that came through.

Now for the rest of the story. The weekend after your group was up we went into the area you were going to scout. 1 mile by 2 miles of lake that hadn't been fished all year, trails all over through it, holes every 200 feet, 7 guys going hole to hole, 2 days, only 2 crappies. blush.gif How did you guys know that there were not any crappies there so you should stay by the house????? confused.gif In any case once again that weekend the crappies won. crazy.gif

It's called dumb luck which usually I don't have much of. cool.gif

We didn't know anything other than Patsy caught a couple from our house the night before. If we would have struck out the first night then we for sure would have moved around the lake more the next day.

You're close Stan. gspman's house was about 150 feet west of where your nephews fished. I think I might have moved it in there while you were still there. 1/4 mile NW of where you fished.

A little light hearted trash talk is good for the soul. So is a 14"-15" crappie.

Beats talking about reality. grin.gif "The bank has givin us 5 days to come up with the payment." "I just found out I'm being laid off next week." "It'll cost more to fix the trunk then it's worth and I cann't afford to buy another one." "My daughter just told me that there will soon be 3 generations living under this roof." "You rolled my truck where?"

There's a lot of times in life when -20 with 30mph winds and 2 feet of slush isn't really all that bad. grin.gifgrin.gif

Good point old timer. grin.gif Funny deal is four of those five things have to do with offspring, as I look back I can see why you would go wonder the ice of red. Some thought you may be lost really you are just hiding. laugh.gif

Hanson, is this the same weather reporter that told you 1-2" before last years slabfest? wink.gif

I don't think so. We got some snow flying in the Cities now so they weren't too far off!

      Use a layer of painters (blue) masking tape on cork first, to help protect it, then apply whatever you want. Electrical tape is used by most, but I like using hockey tape.

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.
    • opsirc
      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      I love big trout. Been hitting snowbank pretty hard the last few days. Lots of follows no hits yet!

      Thanks for the reply Rick... One more hour to check off something from my only get to do it once bucket list doesn’t sound bad at all. If it were you is that where you would go?

      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......
    • Rick
      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
