Since the ice conditions are pretty bad here in the Walker area, I talked to wife into a little Christmas Trip.

Decided to leave the fish house at home and rent one from Chad Benson. Seems to have pretty good houses and a pretty good price and I have heard nothing but good things from people passing through the store on their way home. Only can stay one night, have to be back to work on Friday.

I got a kick out of his fishing report when I read that people were having to pull the rattle reels up at 1-2am so they can get some sleep. grin.gif A sales pitch or not, thats what I wanted to here.

Hoping for some consistant walleye action with a 40"er mixed in. Not expecting any crappies but thats ok. Everything is going back down the hole anyway.

Got the Glow Red and Glow Yellow Demons and Rattle Spoons ready to go!!!! It should be a fun little trip.

I will have a full report when I get back late Thurs. We will be on the South end going out of JR's. Doesn't sound like we will be going out that far, maybe a mile or 2, 10-12 FOW, I told Chad that I was more interested in a good Walleye bite. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

We too are heading up on Wednesday and are coming back late Friday. I would love to find the crappies, but I really wouldn't care if we don't. As long as the walleyes keep us busy it is always worth the 250 mile drive!

There's a good chance my son and I will be there Wednesday also for a day trip. He's only 4.5 years old but I think he's ready for a good walleye bite grin.gif I'll be coming up from my folk's place in Grand Rapids so it's not too bad of a drive for a 1-day trip.

      Measured 6" good clear ice today about 50 yards off the north side of Moccasin point. Walked out for a little ice fishing. Remember ice conditions vary around the lake, depending on sun exposure and current in channels/narrows. Be cautious, safe and verify your local ice conditions.  Directly off the Moccasin point boat landing, in the channel ice conditions looked poor. Picture is from Northside of Moccasin point I the early morning  when ice looks the best

      Finished the 23 waterfowl season over Thanksgiving. Got to hunt two days of the long weekend. Saw a modest number of ducks, and harvested mallards, bluebills, and ringnecks as the water began freezing over during the weekend. One of our tougher seasons with different migration patterns probably due to unusual weather patterns with constant fluctuating between well above average temps for a period and then almost instantly well below temps before going well above again, and so forth. Still will cherish the memories with family and friends and relive the sights and sounds of out on the water during fall. Will be posting ice fishing reports in the fishing report clubs as soon as the ice is safe. Happy Holidays everyone.

      Thanks for sharing this exciting career opportunity with Orvis in the Minneapolis area. It's great to see companies looking for passionate individuals to join their team, especially in the world of fly fishing.

      Shocking, I know.  And what may be more surprising is that one need not head westward to find them either.  There is a thriving, reproducing population of them right here in Central MN.

      Cosmo and I took the afternoon off and went pheasant hunting in the fresh snow yesterday.  Tried some new spots that I have never hunted before.  Raised 28 total.  I got a double at the second spot.  Two roosters flushed simultaneously and I dropped both of them.  The first one one fell dead but the second one went down as a cripple.  After retrieving the dead one, I went over to where the second one went down and after some good dog work, Cosmo came out of a patch of grass with it.  Then the final spot produced another rooster for a December limit.  Hunting after a fresh snow is quite often my most productive and enjoyable hunt of the entire season.

      Did you ever trade the 30-30?  If not would you consider selling?

      Caught some crappies on the north end of Osakis on Nov 15th. Pulled from 25-27 feet. All laid on their side in the live well. All kept but one.
