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.

Good Luck!

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?

No I am to young to know Bill, but I have heard much about him.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.

      yep, lotta lead on the sippi from this guy. LOL  sometimes I do a simple drop shot setup. tie a #4 hook on and leave about a foot or less of line. then just pinch the split shot on bottom and jig away. didnt have to tie on so many hooks.  
    • MinnowBuckets
      Nice report! Glad to see there are others still getting out on the river too. I need to get simpler in my presentation and use the fathead/split shot technique more often. I can’t afford to lose 3 swimbaits or rapalas each time out. 😭
    • eyeguy 54
      dont talk yourself out of it. might hit a couple spots again this coming week for fun. Over the years I have had off and on luck till thanksgiving time. Couple pics from this fall.  I just like a fathead on 1/8 oz jig or a plain hook with a split shot. Quite the battle when the 28 inch northern tried to eat the bass. It got stuck on the jig so reeled them both in. Ran into the current two times. Fight city. LOL
