Pretty smokey looking air out there. Is that from the fires way up north?

Yeah! I noticed the same thing. I think it is probably from the big fire. Is the wind from the North???

If you look at the National Weather Service Lacrosse website, they have a satellite map showing the smoke drifting into our area.

Funny thing is that I went up to the cities tonight, and no sign of smoke. The air currents must have moved right through the Rochester area.

All the smoke in the area was from a couple of barns that burned to the ground right outside of Pine Island.

Those two barns could not of produced that much smoke to fill that big of an area. Plus the amount of smoke that they did put off would not of lingerd around that long.

DT....Maybe it's time to take off the tinted sunglasses? Get yourself a nice pair of those rose colored ones they talk about.

Today everyone is fishing and I'm working....but, I'm getting caught up and during the week, when everyone else is working, I'm going fishing....got a tip on a good crappie spot.

All the smoke and haze Friday was from the Ham Lake (boundary waters) fire as mentioned earlier.

Just fyi.

It's strange to think of smoke being able to make it all the way down here, but with the right wind...

Last year we had a smoky haze from fires that were burning all the way up in northern Alberta. That was crazy.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
