Went out to a secret lake that had almost fished out a few years ago. The crappies are back. Not great size yet, but the numbers are good.

The lake has always been one that you only caught fish right at dark. 8 feet deep at its deepest.

Well, I took my 11yo and his friend out at about 2:30. They were board, so I said they could run the wheeler around for a while. They were as loud as a train outside the house and around and around they went. About 40 feet from the house. Dropped my first line and the action started. Fish after fish came through the hole as I got more and more frusterated that the boys were making so much noise. So, I sent them back to the house for a while. The fishing shut down completely when they left. After an hour, the mom of the friend called and said they were coming back out. As soon as they got to where I was fishing, they started to drive in circles around the house. Fish started biting again. Go figure.

There might have been something to the drives we did a few years ago out on a rice lake at the tip up get together.

It is funny you mention the noise factor. There was a big drill rig on Birch Lake (north of Babbitt) this summer and I was hearing that people would fish right next to it and pound the walleyes.

We live right by the St Louis up by brookston and camp on the river often. The tracks run right next to the river. As soon as you hear a train, you better be ready for the bite to start.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
