Weekend

4 posts in this topic

To the guys in the green chev fishing porty about 7 miles out of Hillman's this morning, thanks for the pull. Hope that tow strap treats you well for many years to come. To the dozen or so guys within a 1/4 mile of me trying to get unstuck, I will recognize several of your rigs for a long time. The guys from Glencoe (I also have the name etched into my mind) that couldn't even spare a shovel since they were leaving "shortly" best hope I don't run into them when I don't have a father and young son waiting for my return. A pardon granted to the plow truck that cruised 50 feet from me, turned around, and by again. I will make the assumption that you had clients to deal with and will gladly clink glasses to the theory that the customer comes first. Hopefully you came back and I was already out.

Fishing was slow. 5 crappies and 5 walleyes for the 3 of us. Marked alot of fish that would come up but not commit. Gotta respect all the fathers here. Tough to keep the concentration on fishing with all that a youngster can come up with to break it. Very tight personal slot of 15 1/2 to 16 1/2 led to many keeper eyes being returned highlighted by the 8 year old landing a 22 incher completely solo to the surface. In spite of all the self centered fisherman, a great trip once again. Can't wait to get up one more time for March crappies.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!
