I am going absolutely insane here in my cube in Dtwn Minneapolis. I have been working on my lists all day, haven't shaved in two weeks, and have been constantly reading these forums just to keep from totally losing it.

I'm not leaving until tomorrow after work, so there's probably some more I could add to my list. Ooooooh, a little sack of flour to check the wind direction in the stand...check! grin.gif

I'm leaving in 3 hours 55 minutes and 13 seconds, roughly!!! I have Purchase Orders to get out today, some production reports to finish up, but somehow can't seem to keep my mind on the task at hand. Did any of you watch South Park on Comedy Central last night? Cartman couldn't wait until the new Nintendo came out so he froze himself in the snow in the mountains and had his buddy "butters" wake him up in three weeks because the wait was actually killing him. I'm thinking about doing the same. I may have to go and jump in Lake Vermilion and try to freeze myself for these next four hours. Is it time yet.....? How about now....? And now....? Nope still four hours, dang it!

Yes, I'm dying here and I should be paying the company instead of them paying me for today! Just got some hand-drawn maps and ballistics recommendations/yardages ready for my two kids that are coming along. The hard part is forgetting their ballistics to remember my own!!

Unforunately, realized that I have both of their rifles zero'd in wrong and will now need a stop at the range to make sure they are correct. That isn't a bad thing but isn't the day I care to be at the range if I can help it.

Oh well, if I focus on worrying about how they are sighted-in I'll probably be able to quit running thru the packing and lists so much.

I'd rather only have to wait a day and a half than the 2 weeks I have to wait.

Two more hours for me Hee Haa. Might even get to bow hunt an hour or so tonight. We have some fresh snow on the ground (Not much but just enough) Need the winds to mellow out!!! Shack is being heated and the truck is packed. The longest week will produce the quickest weekend. No doubt!!! Good luck to all and be safe.

My brother just called me to tell me he made it in to the shack. Didn't even have to cut any trees down over the trail. He's got a barley pop open and awaiting my arrival. He just had to rub it in mad.gif . I've got two hours to go. Well, actually 2 1/2, but I'm sneaking out of here at 4:30.

It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than to ask for permission!!!

I'm in a similar but different situation. I'm stuck at class yet until around 4, thank God for laptops and wireless internet though. I knew I spent the extra dough for the longer lasting battery for a reason smile.gif I've been zoned out of the professors' lectures today and probably checked the weather and this site about 1000 times already today. I'm leaving tomorrow after a morning presentation and a quick stop at Gander Mtn. I'd also like to shoot about 5 rounds just to ease any doubts I may have. This has probably been one of the longer weeks of the year, though ever since I started bow hunting it's not AS bad as it used to be. Just gotta wash the clothes tonight and make sure everything is packed, check the list about 10 times, don't wanna get out there and realize I forgot the shells. Good luck to everyone.

Ok, here I go. I'm leaving right now. If nobody ever hears from me again it means the boss caught me and put me solitary confinement. Wish me luck!!!

I don't know about you guys but I have been sitting up my stand for about a week and a half now, my wife says I have shot a deer every night in my sleep for a week. Good thing I don't let the anticipation get to me.

Don't even get me started on all the deer I've shot while losing sleep this week. I've shot some bucks that would have made Boone and Crockett use their gloves as TP! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I know the feeling about the shortage of sleep but that won,t get cured till saturday night. I mostly try to keep busy with little projects. Right now I have about 5 pounds of venison in the smoker making pepper blend jerky and I still will sharpen a couple of knives and pack a little more stuff. Good luck to all and I hope the time passes quickly for you all.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
