Spring is the busiest time of year with opener and open water fishing coming up. Summer can be alright if fishing remains good. However, I've seen it before go days without a post if the weather really heats up and the fishing slows down.

sparcebag yes indeed you did point me to the coyotes...I actually just got finished tanning it and it turned out very nice.

as far as the fishing goes, my girlfriend's parents have a place on Diamond just east of the public access at the county park. Around opener last year I caught quite a few fishing the point on the north side of the lake...on 4th of July weekend I had a lot of luck in the evening and early morning fishing real shallow.

I didn't have my boat up there but plan to haul it up a couple times this summer. Drop me your email address and maybe we could get out and stick a few.

Dr Walleye, its one lake west of west Sunburg,Gravel road that goes south from supper club at Sunburg,all the way to county 40.Both sides are fishable and you can get a boat in east side.Lots of bass and very big panfish.Try the west side with smaller boat or canoe its been kinda ignored last couple ice off seasons.They connect to Monson and Paulson and other good shallow slough lakes .You can get some frisbie sized panfish out their ,but almost all year long they taste muddy.Smaller ones are still OK now.Bring the camera. cool.gif

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
