I am losing my mind!

3 posts in this topic

This weather is making me crazy! I am coming up Sunday morning staying through Wednesday in I-Falls and this dang river is going to drive me nuts! I have had reservations for over a month hopeing I would have some good weather and good fishing....but I would be satisfied with just good fishing but is sounds like neither is going to happen. I wish Birchdale was open!

I hear ya Milkdud! We're supposed to leave tomorrow as well, but I think we'll wait. My fishing partner & I are both lucky in that we can leave on a very short notice. This year is a perfect example of why we don't make reservations at the resorts close to Birchdale. Love Clementson, and Royal Dutchman, but they're generally booked at least 1 week in advance, often more. Tough at the motels in town also. We started staying at various resorts on Wheeler's Point about 3 years ago. It adds about 1/2 hour to your travels, but most resorts have openings at the drop of a hat. Let's hope it opens up soon, and stays realtively mud-free! We'll probably head up next Wed.-Thurs., but it depends on Mother Nature. Good Luck, post a report when you return.

Just got back from Birchdale and feel good about what I saw.

Appears to be open to about 100 yds. below the big rock in the middle above the ramp. There was a boat going from side to side there checking for depth. I was trying to send him a telepathic message where to fish and he settled in where I told him. Glad that worked.

Open water down the US side to the ramp. Hope it widens a bit tonight. Good wet/soft spot down the middle that I hope breaks out tonight.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
