Was out on Washington last night and a guy told me a house was stolen off there in the last week. Not sure what day, but the guy said it was a home built house, not manufactured. For those that haven't put a hitch lock on, now would be a good time to do it.

Thats why I don't leave my house unattended out on washington at night. On christmas eve I had my house out on german and decided to go out for a couple of hrs and when I pulled into the access, there were 2 guys drilling out by my house. no big deal right?, but by the time I had my four wheeler unloaded they were looking into the windows on my house! At 2 oclock in the afternoon in plain view from the hwy and the access! Some people have big

ba!!$ . I'm just glad they decided not to come back once I left that night.

My buddy put false flooring in his shack to hide any thing he wants to leave in it. Plus he has a hiddin lock on the wheel drop. That I spent three hpurs looking for while fishing. It was a good idea. But he had his stolen of french 2 years ago. That was after it got broke into 5 times. Thats the reason why I've never bought a perm. You can't trust people.

in my thoughts what you take on the lake you take home that whey there you don't have to worry if your house is going to get broke into. That just sucks when that happens cause when you get out there and you want to fish and you have nothing. been there done that, and that why i fish out of a portabe. I have a little one growing up and i'm thinking really hard about buying a perm just to get him interrested in the sport but this is what scares me...

I was told that some houses got broke into off of the north landing friday night. I'm not sure how many, but if your house is out there you might want to check it.

Seems we go through this every year. Best way I found to keep a permanent safe is leave the curtains pulled open so a would be theif can see what is in your house with out the effort of breaking in. Next leave nothing of value in your house. If they see nothing they will generally do nothing.

My thief protection is no curtains, small windows and a dead bolt on the door. Leave nothing worth stealing.

Also, Neighborhood watch is the best medicine. If you see something fishy, drive over and check it out. If the felons know that the houses are being watched by the regulars the move on. My buddy saw a truck at night driving around to different houses, he hopped in his truck and bee lined it over. They saw him coming and jumped in their truck. He swung in behind them long enough to get a license plate number. Deputies found quite the haul in their truck and in the shed at one of their parents.

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
