Sweet photoes there Walli! Nice to see you are enjoying the surroundings as well as the fishing. Those pics with the early morning fog remind me of a story I heard a long time ago. The jist was that the indians always traveled in reverence during the morning fog because in the mists you could see the vague outlines of the shapes of fallen warriors marching along. Next time you have time just sit and watch out across the water and if you look long enough you will start to see the shapes gliding along the surface in the mist. Another of those small wonders in Gods creation! Thanks for sharing!

1st time posting. Nice photos Walli! Haven't had much luck the last two weeks at Prescott. We tried jigs/fatheads. Last Wednesday gave up and hit the Vermillion. Picked up a few nice saugers. Will try again on Thursday. Any suggestions, Walli?

There's only one master and I answer to Him, without Him there would be no river or fish. Thanks though! I grow up fishing walleyes on lakes only, then about eight years ago I went down to the river, didn't really catch that much but thought, boy is it beautiful down here and as the years have past, I fell in love with the river. The last two years the river has been about the only place I fish, I've put alot of time in and had to change a few things to adapt to river fishing and I still havn't got it figured out, because the river is always changing, its nothing like a lake and its alot tougher but the rewards are even sweeter! grin.gif

Hey Walli1, I've got to agree with you there! I don't fish the Croix all that much but have absolutely fallen in love with the Miss & the Minnesota. Its a whole new game that requires different techniques and a lot of learning and that is what I love about it! Its been tough but definitely rewarding!

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
