ok. those of you that know me know that i live for the hard water season. so it is very hard for me to post this. i do believe it may just be time to put OPEN WATER back to the top. like i said it pains me to say so but this way i can start to count the days before ice fishing gets its place back there next fall. the boat is almost ready to be parked in the garage. so dad can get it ready for the summer. and the hobie cat is showing its gleem waiting to see some spring and summer winds. and on that note how about a sailing forum here in Hso. we have forums for many other things outdoor related. well sailing involves outdoors and water. i would even be interested in moderating this forum i am not by any means an expert. but i just thought id toss that in for a response. ... paul

I have been wondering when this would surface. I have been keeping track each time I log in and so far Ice Fishing always has more visitors than open water. I thought that was the determining factor? I guess when ya get right down to it, the weather speaks more to open water than the great grand glorious hardwater fishing. frown.gifmad.gif Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Wednesday, March 28, 2007 15:35 CDT. It is with heavy heart that I must report 32 people on the open water forum and only 30 on the Ice Fishing forum. mad.gif Alas, I guess that time has come! Oh well, think of the swimsuits we will be seeing soon! See there is one good thing about summer! No, that is not sexist either as I know that the ladies like to check out the swimsuits as well. grin.gif Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

nytelyter, just rig up some pontoons under your house and get some anchors. Then you could just fire up the auger and spin it around a few times just for fun. Make sure you have your 07-08 shelter liscence so you so the CO's don't give you a ticket! grin.gif

Bring on the soft water!!!!

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
