Everything changes everyday. It's imposible to predict much of anything. Also remember that you could fit many 1,000's of MN's other lakes all together inside of URL. Hillman's road alone is 50+ different reports everyday.

KellyP and myself do not "guide" per say in the winter. We run sleeper houses on the lake and it keeps us plenty busy.

I guide during the open water season and early ice for pike.

Where did you go Labs? I went over for more soup today and nobody was around! Thought about busting into your shack and stealing the Swiss Cakes rolls you had stashed.

You know if you don't feed us we will hide the Labshack again. \:\/

They kicked me out and pirated my house! I think I fed them too much food and they want their wives to believe they really were ice fishing! grin.gif

Next time if the waether moderates a little, we'll get the grill fired up! Screw the soup! Time to grizzle down some hunks of meat!

Good seeing you and Jim and Kelly and Patsy...and.... grin.gif

See ya in a couple weeks! It feels good to be back!

Good Luck!

Is Jim your grandpa, Jonny? I've been reading a book based in Waskish (in the 60's), and Bill Callies, the game warden stated a couple times that a Jim Petrowske was a good friend of his.

Very cool. I'm not a Waskish regular, and don't know much about the history of the town. Did you know Bill Callies? If not, does your grandfather ever speak of him?

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
    • Borch
      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
