Crappie Keith.

Do you have a job or are you a professional crappie fisherman.? Do you have a magazine?

Were you just born last month because I have never seen you here before and there can't be to many crappies left in the lakes up there that don't have a hole in there mouth. And suddenly you have taken over the local scene on here.

How many fish can you eat in one week.? Do you like tartar sauce.? So many questions. So much fishing to do.

Thanks. grin.gif

Interesting, Crappie Todd and Crappie Keith. You two would make a good couple. You should get together and go fishing sometime.

Siss has got some dandy eyes in her.

The gills are not bad either.

Too bad the creek weeded over going into 10.The 70's were awesome for fishing.

10 had some of the nicest p'seeds you ever saw.

Hey Crappie Todd

here's a taste of how the winter went.

My name, Crappie Todd came from a Guy named, Dave Gentz. I date it back in the about 1985. It was about the time Dave became popular with Babe winkleman. No longer a team they used to fish Gun lake. Most people know Dave, his name is all over the state in the winter time. Also I fished Lake Hattie at Tuck A way resort and was in the beginning and rapid end to a magazine named "pan Anglers news.... I still have copies of it. I wrote beiefly.

I fish crappies 85 % of the time and gills 14 % and snag a walleye accidentally now and then @ 1%.

I eat a few and stronly believe in catch and release because the lake I am on...... I have been blamed for its down fall. So, I have an attitude towards the DNR thinking I am one man lake ruining crew.

Walleys are my weakness.... I posted looking for Bull heads. You must have seen it.

No one responded. I deleted it.

Mabey we will bump in to each other some time.

CK is the best thing to happen in years to this site....there were many times people used to ask questions about the area and did not receive any answers from anybody local....We used to catch nice bullies on Portage just east of Gun..

It's going to be THE place to golf around this area very soon.

Wayne is in the middle of his 6 year plan.

He sure has done a lot of stuff over there to make a world class place.

Back to fishing.

Going out in the predawn time to Round then after daybreak to Sqaug until 11.Then RJ Fritz,MeanGene O. and my boss plus Mallard to my monster gill holefor a noon run.Then back to those eyes at dusk to 11 pm.

I was thinking the same thing.

There are those that love the pics I'll post up or possibly glean some trick or method I'm using.

Others assume I'm taking all of these fish home to eat

and they want it to be known that I should stop.

I've seen the whole gammet of responses.

I'm just a humble fisherman ,promoting fishing.

It is and always has been my goal to get guys excited about fishing.

Teaching others to fish or to become better at what I call my main passion in life.

If you want to see something really cool there is this 8 year old kid that comes from a broken home that I've helped to get into fishing and now he's tying his own jigs.

It's so cool to run into him & hear his stories of fishing .

He gets so pumped.

I believe that's why God put us earth to help & uplift others.

On the other hand if you want to go out fishing in a lake that's producing I'll share it with you.

I spend near 200 days a year on the water & or ice just to keep the pulse of the fish.What I do ,I could get 300$ a day in guide fees ,but for the most part it's all free.

I've made a ton of friendships this last year doing this & I'll continue to have a blast rearing.

So in conclusion being apart of a forum in FM is important to me.

Helping others grow,promoting our industry and reaveling in what mother nature has to offer all of us!

I see nothing wrong with these pics. I have seen hundreds just like them posted all over this forum.

Can you please elaborate about what portion of forum policy this violates? I just reread the policy and find nothing wrong with them.

it might be the pics that have some fish laying on the ice? I think I've read something about that in the forum pic rules but cant remember.

You'll hear no bashing from me! keep up the good work.

What a strange frickin' post. CT - do you have a point to make here?


Actully I guess I can say Yes to that. Your on every posting for the area there with about the same pics. You have so many pics I have trouble looking at the posts because I have dial up and can't even use the forum to simply look at it. Down load time might as well be nap time.

It great you have pics of you with your fish. But whats your point posting em every single available forum there.

If you continue to post where I can't use the forum to look at other responses in words, than I will just shut up and go away.

Its not about anything more than that.

What ever happened to asking nicely?

I have dial up as well and have no problem looking at the pics.

If you can't read any forums that contain pictures then are you going to ask eveyone who posts pics to stop so that you can read all the forums easier?

Also if you check out the Mille Lacs forum at all there is a thread there titles Mille Lacs Pictures. There are pictures of perch sitting on a cutting board next to a filet knife. If those pics are ok then I am sure these will be just fine.

Keep on keepin' on CK.

We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount and live release tournament pictures are ok as well. All other dead fish pictures are not allowed.

      Well another game fish season has came to a end. The dnr will be having a meeting this week in Kellier to discuss the up and coming open water season.. I be leave our cabins are wide open with narly a date penciled in this summer including opener?
      Grab a cup of java because this is going to be a long blog.
      The first thing is what a great ending to another game fish season .
      The biggest thing and this come from my heart is" Thank you" to all my new and repeat customers . With out all of you I would not be able to enjoy working on such a grand lake. When that old timer Dave shared that with me I was in Awe. "Its a grand lake and it owes me nothing, nothing was his quote and boy did that stick. The walleye fishing this year could of been better. I'm all most to the point of calling them the elusive upper red lake walleye?
      Just like every season for 14 years now we have had great fishing, good fishing and poor fishing. I guess its the luck of the draw when you come up. We caught a couple,, we caught some and we caught a few over the season. The fishermen have become a little more tight lip about there walleye catches over the last couple years. Its so funny when You ask a fishermen how they did. The ponder and say oh we got a few? I've always been like how many is a few? Its always well we got 18? To me a few is 3, a couple is two and some can be 1 or more.
      The dnr will be releasing a summery of what's happening on the lake in the next upper red lake association news letter. If your interested in joining and becoming a member its 25 dollars a year or 50 if you want your business listed on there web site.
      I have a few gripes I want to share also. Some you will have to read between the lines.
      The first thing is Saturday night I was coming off of the lake on Hillmens highway. Buddy Hillmen is so dedicated to his road and there is no one prouder when it comes to maintaining a ice road.
      As I was coming on to the landing a big wheel house turned off the highway. I new right away they did not pay 10 dollars and there's a sign right there that says 10 dollars. I rolled down my window and he was like wow I did not know where to pay. Where do you pay? He had no problem finding the access but did not see the lights on in the bar with a few vehicles there? Give me a break.
      Kelly, Buddy Hillmens mechanic got 3 Thursday night pulling in. If you can not afford 10 dollars a day for your wheel house ? I personally think wheel houses should have to pay more?
      I also had a few customers that tried to slide by this year and its very frustrating . The deal I have with buddy hillmen is I can use his access and in turn my customers have to pay 10 dollars a day. I'm on call 24 hours a day for any ice road work ,plowing, bridging, etc. Over the years I have been accused of fishing where some one was going to go? fishing on some ones way points? Cutting someone off. Every year its something and again this year was no exception? Any side roads I personally plow to my houses are always open. Do I want fishermen by my houses? Nope. My customers pay good money and I do not want them looking out the picture windows and seeing a wheel house 30 yards away. There is always plenty of room where I plow as I'm the rouge plower. I have no problem plowing out a driveway for a wheel house as it helps pay for my equipment as it takes a beating out there.
      Its been a crazy season and its not over for me as I again chase the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. to be continued

      My snowmobile is dead so I can't vouch for the rest of the lake (anyone want a '97 Polaris 600 for free?) but when I augered through the ice in my bay, the ice was over 2ft thick - came to the middle of my thigh. However, there were several layers that the auger broke through and definitely some slushy ice mixed in. I would definitely be wary of areas with current! Stay safe

      Your all done Brian, thanks for stopping by!

      2.27.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side, we are seeing walleyes being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits. Canada is still producing but the crappie bite has been hot and cold within the last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Until next week! Sunset Lodge Ice Team

      I managed to get a couple of days off, so plan on pulling my wheelhouse up to LOW (Wheeler's Point) Wednesday morning. Reports have been kinda sparse, so am wondering what the latest and greatest is? Don't expect your Honey Hole spot, just general locations, ice and lake travel conditions, etc, etc. Any help is appreciated. Thanks 'Pout
