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!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
