When you use the services of Jonny, Kelly, and Patsy, you are in for a first class operation.

This past weekend some guys and myself rented a sleeper from these guys. Holy Cow!!! This house was huge enough to play hockey in!! It's clean to boot!!! It was one of the few I've rented that didn't smell like rotting fish, or a fart, or some kind of science experiment. They come out and check on you often, show you a few fish catching tricks, and of course warn you about the URL seals.

Part of a great weekend.

What an awesome time. Anyone thinking about hitting URL should really ring up the Waskish Minnow Station. To say you will be pleased with their services is an understatement.

Legal disclaimer- Jon, just cuz you can, doesn't mean we actually did play hockey in the fish house. grin.gif

Quite a few crappies and even more walleye.

No pike or perch, but Jon knew we wanted crappie and eyes so that's where he put us.

The DNR officers.

and to add to the post about Kelly and Jon, They are the best. I was the guy holding everything up with my truck not starting, they went completely above and beyond to help me get it started, and never acted as if I was inconveniencing them, I cant thank you enough for all your help. They also put us on some fish on friday night we caught 2 perch 2 crappies 1 northern and around 15 walleye, then after the sun came up all we got the rest was like 4 walleye 1 northern, but all in all was a Great weekend, all thanks to Kelly and Jon, I would recommend them every time. Thanks again!!

Boiler the house looked fine, we did find claw and scratch marks where Bob was sitting. \:D

Spinner fisher, its not like we haven't been broke down on the lake before, bad place to have a dead rig. I'm just glad we got your rig going and didn't have to drag it to town.

Boiler Guy- You were not too far from us, but it was way to cold to venture over. Sorry man maybe next time. We ended up with 100 walleye's, 20 crappies, 2 northerns,and one perch on Scott's circle! grin.gif

Labs- nice to meet you and glad you guys got that car started.

I posted details in update posts.

Woodman, it was nice meeting you too. Did your buddies ever find Ludlow Island? grin.gif Me thinks they probably didn't want any more stories form Jon and I.

Getting that car started was easy for me... just drive Jonny over to their car, hand him my genrerator and let him hook up their engine block heater... "DOH crazy.gif 'I' knew we should've hooked that up!". Couple hours later, I guess she fired right up. Give Jonny a warm bowl of soup when he brough the generator back and all was good. Note to everyone on the big lake! Don't point your grill into the wind when you park your vehicle!

On a weekend like that, I was almost glad I had a diesel... I think it ran for 40 outta 48 hours! But boy it was always nice and warm when you jumped in it! Which wsn't all that bad as the thermometer on the dash showed -24 degrees! blush.gif

Good Luck!

Ken

Labs- They asked me where it was and I told them St. Cloud. grin.gif There were so full of it that night, that I shut my talky off so I could fish in piece and quiet. My dad caught a huge crappie and eye when he was out for the afternoon. It was great to get him back ice fishing again. My generator sure paid for itself this weekend, best Christmas gift I got! grin.gif

Truck ran lots due to everybody driving it to go to the bathroom, and to shore to get stuff. I should have charged them for the use of it so I can fill it up again. The wife was shocked at how much gas was left when I got home.

Great weekend and lots of memories for URL! whistle.gif

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
