Should be excellent fishing lately if the wind dies down. Used to be good during deer hunting and before west Union froze up. I think my hands are still cold frown.giffrom years ago when it was 5 above and in the boat on west Union grin.gif

Fish, Looks like you are the only one around here that can withstand those cold temps. You sure did haul in some huge eyes. How large was the biggest you caught?

Well being I called you and filled you in on the info I won’t say much here. The biggest was 10.5 lb caught by Paul V.

I did purchase the Skiple <spelling>spear yesterday. Don’t know if I should keep it or sell it tho. Looks like brand new and he purchased it new from the brothers.

Good luck up north if you guys go.

Any of you guys been out on any of the lakes around Ersking yet? My dad has been out on Little Sarah spearing and he said the water is pretty cloudy he is hoping to hit the lakes soon for some panfish/walleye action. It sounds like the snow is really going to mess up the ice though. How bad is the flooding?

I was out and checked the ice depth on the west side, only found about 3 - 4 inches with about 5 or more inches of snow on top. It didn't flood when I cut the hole but you can be sure there will be some flooding going on.

I would imagine other areas have more ice, west side just froze over Tues. other areas have been froze for longer.

Saw 3 houses out on the west side and a little bit of flooding at the access.

I hope people play it safe for a while, first look and you would think it was Febuary out there with all the snow but with only a few inches of ice, we need COLD weather for sure now.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
