I can hardly Contain myself!!

6 posts in this topic

I am getting more and more excited for open water fishing. There is a little work to be done to the boat which will be accomplished in the next couple of weeks. New depthfinder with GPS, moving current depth finder to front of boat, doing minor maitnence and putting in some new carpet in one area where the carpet had some uneven wear. This ice needs to go so i can get out on the water at least once before finals and work starts!!

I Saw open water today on Prarie Lake near Pelican Rapids. It is open for 100+ yards from shore. Not long now.

I am in the same boat as you guys...no pun intended grin.gif. Just cant wait until the lakes open up and I can drop my boat in. This rain probably has helped speed things up a little.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
