FM Member Bucks-n-Ducks (Philip Zimpel)is currently in second place as a co-angle at the FLW Event at Devils Lake.With today's(Friday)event cancelled, things are looking pretty good for him. Not only is Philip a very good angler, he ties my spinners for me, and is my daughters' basketball coach. Keep it up Philip. We're pulling for ya.

Hey thanks for the nice words both Jon and Curt.......Also thanks for the air-time Curt, I know alot of people in the Plummer area tell me that they listen to the program.

I ended up finishing in 6th place for the tournament. This was my first Top-10 in a FLW Tour event. What a great experience, if anyone out there has ever thought about doing a FLW or PWT event...........WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? None of you are getting any younger, if you have any questions let me know, we could even carpool together to a tournament. There might even be some openings in the next event( Bay de Noc).

I would have liked to be at the get-together, but fishing in the final day was a great.

I'll be up on the big pond this weekend. Maybe will run into some of you guys then

Do I know you. I'm kinda guessing with that comment that I must know you or something. Yes, I do coach JH Basketball in the winter.

ah, I got a real good idea who you are now......especially with your name on this website. Well if you coach better then you fish, you must be a horrible fisherman, becuase your coaching........well you get the picture:)

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
