So what is the story behind your choice of avatar? Mine is just a simple big fish story on my favorite lake.

I just like to shuffel through various pics. In fall I had a pic of me and the kids with some geese, this one is of a 'eye I got ice fishing on LOTW, hopefully I'll get a pic of a pannie in the near future, and then hopefully I'll get a pic of an 'eye after the opener. Just change my avatar as the various seasons progress. smirk.gif

Just one nice eye I hooked on the Rainy River a few springs ago. BDR was behind the wheel and camera that day.

Mine is from my last perch trip on Mille Lacs Feb. 24th.

It might look like the video repeats, but really I was hammering them left and right...What a day!

Oh, if I look a little jaundice (yellow) that is because I traded one of my livers for a portable ice shelter the week before the trip.

My dog's sight pointing a robin in a shrub. Pretty good style and intensity for a pup.

My two kids doing the "Fishies" dance around the minnow bucket. Needless to say the wife doesn't appreciate the dance that much. It is performed in the garage now, that is until the boat hits the lake

Mine is a picture of me before the opening kick off of a football game against Red Rock Central from my Junior year, came back in the second half from 18 down to win that one.

I really should get something up from the championship game in the Dome, or maybe something of a fish.....

Ummm... I guess its just a catfish. tongue.gif

Actually, it was the biggest cat in the boat that remarkeable weekend last June on the Red River. 40 cats in 2 days fishing for a grand total weight of over 600 pounds. Unreal! I think we had 6 cats over 20lbs.

First big catches, even if dwarfed by later catches, are always memorable. Thats what this one is.

I started bass fishing only a couple years ago. This pic was of a 3+ pounder in the first year I started that I pulled out from under a fallen tree trunk in 3 feet of water in Mink/Somers on a wacky rigged 4" black senko. It was a hot, windy summer day, and the sun was just tipping over the treetops. This is the fish that sealed the deal for me and my bass addiction. My buddy Greg snapped the shot. Since then I've done most of my bass fishing alone, so my bigger fish don't have photos.

Two December birds, my favorite time of the year to hunt roosters. Snow and heavy cattails.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
