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 wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
