Since deer hunting wasn't going so well, I took the boat as plan "B". Decided to head to South Lida thinking I could find some crappies and walleyes. Got to the access, the pirvate one between the two lakes and decided to pass. The access looked too soft for my little 2wd. Headed up to Franklin. You know that by the time you're at plan "C" there will be a marked diminishment of expectations. I marked some fish and caught a few northerns and perch. As soon as the wind did a 180 degree turn, the fish just quit hitting at all. The cool thing was the elk ranch near the lake. The elk were bugling constantly all afternoon long. Bad hunting, bad fishing, still better than work. I thnk I've got the same problem as Bison9. Burning smell by the driver's side rear wheel. Shakes a bit when I get up to speed.

Funny part is (read my other post in the Pelican thread), mine was due to a parking break being engaged while I was barreling down the highway... crazy.gifcrazy.gif

My parking break indicator is shot on my truck and I had no way of knowing that it was engaged - It probably just goes to show also that my brake wasn't working great to begin with if it wasn't gripping as well as it should have while engaged... It's funny how disengaging the parking break will make your truck run a lot smoother... smile.gif

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
