Cliff, sorry did not get much of a chance to see you two, after Friday night anyways. The dock bite for us was ok, biggest was a 20 incher, Grand Daughter was getting some very nice perch, they are cleaned and in the freezer. A Lot of people out trolling in front of the cabin. Watched them net some fish, sitting by the fire was a good place for me to be. All in all is was a good weekend.

We did ok sunday and monday. Caught a bunch of fish in 4-8 feet on sunday evening including a few slot fish biggest that night was 22. Monday morn our shallow water was slow so we moved out to 17-35 and low and behold I caught my biggest vermillion walleye to date. It measured 30 inches on the nuts. Pretty beat up and spawned out but still a good catch.

My family and I were there for the first time ever this past weekend. I have also only fished walleyes since opener of 2006 so I am a rookie. I thought we did pretty good, caught a total of 22 with only one in the slot at 18 1/2". About half were caught at the dock in the evening and the other half caught drifting minnows in 13-15 feet with a couple caught in 24-28 feet. My son outfished me on Sunday and my daughter caught the last two of the trip on Monday night. All in all a great time and I am looking forward to going back some time in the future!

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
