Oh thanks Paul, tease me for so many days to come, its just plain mean, but i will be in the boat hopefully mid April chasing some crappies around and hopefully one early trip to Devils Lake if all goes well. I am just hoping opener this year is as good as last year. grin.gifgrin.gif

Ya As I dragged my fish house past my boat last weekend I was trying to think what would be more fun right now. then I realized..... WHO CARES I am fishing. I was just sending an email to work to make sure I had the weekend off for opener. I have been kinda screwed last few openers. I worked in Fargo Last year on Saturday but was out at midnight on friday till 6am. slept till 10am worked from noon to 2am and was back on the water at 5:00am. Slept monday after work. It was gruelling. but a tradition. I have not missed opening day since I was a baby. This spring when ICE out we will be dragging the boat to Ransonm county and fishing some small ND game and Fish stocked lakes. One in particular we have iced fished for the first time this year and did great. Will be interesting to see what spring brings us.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
