Between yardwork,FM sales work and getting the race car and trailer ready and also getting the boat ready there is no time for fun now. blush.gif

Now, when that is all done this next week, look out as Tom will be back in action. cool.gif I cannot complain as I hunt and fish almost all year long. smile.gif Sometimes things do need to get done. frown.gif

Thanks for thinking of me and my lack of fishing. In a few weeks it will be catfishing, mushroom picking, racing and the trip to the Sturgeon event. Then it will be racing and fishing all summer long until bow hunting in September and then all fall hunting and fishing again. Its just one big circle.

Sometimes a little work in between. Takes money to play and I play alot. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Sounds like many lakes are open or nearly open. That ice sure did go fast. Heck, it wasn't more than 1.5 weeks ago when TO and I saw 18" out there!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
