I was out Monday and Tuesday and ended up with 3 and saw maybe 100. Very dismal at this point, although the weekend was real good. A buddy of mine was scouting last night and today and knows what he's doing and he isn't seeing anything.

I did my first big water diver hunt of the season this morning. Not alot of birds around and the one's that are around seem pretty educated, even the bluebills act like they've "run the gauntlet" a few times. I ended up with a pair of buffies and 2 hen hooded mergansers. Gonna be chasing diver's again Wed and Thurs on the big water.

Lots of ringbills last weekend.Especially after the snow on Saturday. The rice is where they were hanging out. We did hunt a lake one morning and got two ringbills but the rice is the place to be.

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.

      Even in the metro the little bit of snow pack is insulating the ice pretty well so far. I've been out 3 days in a row and haven't noticed any significant melting. The forecasted rain for the next few days will probably change things a little.
