I had the pleasure of taking my father and son up to URL and stayed in one of Kelly's houses. The fish house was excellent, and I thought he was considerate to come by every once in a while to check up us. I would definetely love to come up again.

We only caught two crappies, a few 10-12" large perch, however, caught and landed about 60 walleyes (We kept a daily tab for bragging purposes.) We did not leave the fishhouse like was recommended...perhaps, when my dad is not with us so as not to leave him alone. The camera revealed alot less fish during the daylight hours, so we tried to flash and pound them in with various jigs and rattling type lures. That attracted enough fish which hit the minnows under bobbers. Our main action occured at night. We are night owls anyways so that worked out good. If you can stay up we got into ALOT of fish during three main time periods. 12:00-1:30AM, 2:00-3:00AM, and 5:00-6:00AM. What we did was turn our drags down all the way, until the line pulled out easily , and listened for the drag to work in our sleep. Both crappies were caught in the middle of the night, as were the perch. I didn't expect that. Anyways, we had a great time and will be back!

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
