Just a huge thanks to Cheffrey and Grand Superior Lodge for a fantastic spread tonight! Man Im still stuffed!

When we got home the wife and I took the dog for a walk to try and get circlulation back in our legs. I think my belt shrunk 4 notches at the table and I had a hard time feeling my toes. wink.gif

When we got home my wife crashed and Im not far behind.

Anyone looking for a good wild game feed should keep Cheffrey and his crew in mind. Oh and the South Shore Brew wasnt bad either. grin.gif Thanks to Badger for a nice variety of drink.

Frank and Lota is was nice to see you and your better halfs. I hope you guys all had a safe drive home. Those deer were crazy on the way home. shocked.gif

Who knows maybe you guys will be famous in the Big City. I think that camera man really liked you guys. cool.gif

Northlander, nice to see you again and nicer to see your lovely wife. Ha!

Cheffery and crew put on one heck of a spread. Last year my wifes favorite was the ravioli rabbit in a cream sauce. This year she loved the rabbit in a red suave.

After those dishes I might have to let Jr go jihad on the Cottontails on our garden. My favorite was the grouse & portabella mushrooms. Amongst that was Bore-kabobs, Antelope & curry sauce, bison salad w/blue cheese dressing, Rattlesnake casadias, Pheasant, Venison Swirls, and on, and on, and on.

On the way home we almost had venison on the grill a couple times.

It sounds like I missed a good time also. I'm finally done with my two weeks of schooling at work and I was able to get the rest of deer camp in order with the help of LoonASea and my Dad on Saturday.

I spent the last two hours putting things away in the garage for the season and I'm giving some serious thought to heading down to the French and float a couple of crawlers for a few hours.

I'll do my best to make the next game feed when it comes around next time. I think Cheffrey should practice a little more of his talent at our first ice fishing outing for the season. Sound like a good plan to anyone else??

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      Usually we skip the the river until later in the year but it was the cleanest water we found and the only place we caught any fish. Heading out now to give it another try.

      Close to home is possible, try those places first?  I will be out this weekend (if this cold doesnt kill me first)  Better luck next time fins

    • Ok so every year Try to get the guys from work on a fishing trip. Trying to decide on where to go we usually rent a cabin and run portables.

      I am thinking Devils lake, LOW, or Red

      Devils we would do the lodge ice house package because the deal is too good to mess with bringing a trailer and sled or wheelers with.

       

      what would you choose and any other suggestions Leech or Vermillion?

    • I plan on taking all my ice fishing equipment out of my shed this week I cant wait

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope
