Go to Red Wing on your way home. Launch was pretty good today. Those 50 days seem like forever right now!!! I wonder if I can arrange my tackle in any other ways?

Tell me about it. I have cleaned out my tackle box times and organized my hooks, changed my line, cleaned the boat, now I am just waiting for the water to open up on Minnetonka for some Crappie fishing. Then there is that glorious day that starts the season. I can't wait and my wife can't wait for me to shut up about it. Apparently she doesn't like to look at maps and put together a game plan a month and a half out.

It's just to hard. When your not catching them, you have a watch time and a little knowledge. 48 days, 15 hours, 15 minuets.

Your sick to already be thinking about first ice. I was going to tell K Dawg to relax and try not to think about it. But Ryan there is just something wrong with you.

All in good fun. I'm thinking about crappie fishing on Minnetonka and can't wait for a couple more weeks before that first bobber goes down for the year. My wife is a psychologist and she is trying to tell me that this obsession is not normal and should be treated medically. My response was "your darn right I do." I am glad I am in good company here.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
