How did you turn out in the great white north?

I ended up finding a few gills this morning and proceeded to join Muc33 at the Round lake tourney. Although we (I) only got one bite and one 'eye it was good enough to get me $100. This is the first time I've actually made money for a day of fishing and I kind of like it. There were 178 entrants in the contest and 17 fish were caught in three hours but it was a good time BSing and waiting for that flag to finally fly.

PerchPounder, you lucky devil you! Congrats on your day! I still can't believe how thick the ice is! The JIFFY had a workout! Maybe we will meet up at the next event. I'll be back to Round pretty soon tto get some more of those eyes.

Yeah I know. Luck of the draw but I will take it anyway I can get it. I think we could have had more fish for our group but we weren't trying too hard. Maybe next time.

Way to bring home the bacon.....er.....fishie.....er.....CASH PP!! grin.gif

Just once I wish God would let me ice fish this season without trying to blow me across a lake.

Reelemin, TerryT, Fishin4kids, Trouble 28, myself, and a few others were out on Shetek. The weater really made moving around difficult so we just hunkered down and fished.

I thing Reelemin came in with 5 crappies, Terry T had a couple of crappies and a nice pike, I ended up catching about a dozen walleyes too small to keep and 7 dandy crappies.

I'm still kicking myself. A little over a week ago a friend of mine offered to let me use his Marcum camera for a couple of weeks. I said no thanks. Yeah, I'm that dumb. Once again I saw a ton of lookers on the flasher, but few takers no matter what I did. It seemed the ones that actually did want the bait came in so fast you couldn't even catch them on the flasher. It was fun. All in all, I'll call it a good day on the ice. Sounds like you guys had some good times down on round, too.

PerchPonder sounds like a great day on the ice. Fishing and making money - does it get any better ?

Boilerguy, that was a fun day on the ice. My gosh that wind is unbelievable down there on the prairie. I had all 4 limbs stretched holding onto the inside poles a few times. Even attached to the wheeler and me sitting i9n the seat, I thought I was going to be air born a couple of times !!! crazy.gif

Fishing was so so, Just enough action to keep ya there. Like Eric said the wind kept us from being mobile.

Lots of lookers and a nice crappie every so often would charge and nail the hook. Fun. I also iced a coulple of small (very small \:o , half a fish stick size \:D ) walleyes and a perch.

Boilerguy, its been great fishing you, good luck the rest of hard water season and I'll catch up with you when the water is wavy again. \:D

Tami, if you thought the wind was strong yesterday..... holy moses today was incredible.

Sounds like you guys and gals had a good time. We had some fun too and the Round Lake Sportsmans club had a great turn out. It was great to see SkeeterB there and some other FM'ers. Thanks for coming out.

We really found the walleyes on the night bite on Round the last two days. Gotta get my girls a plate full of fresh ones this week before the season is kaputz! So we will hit it hard and try to fill the fryer one of these nights.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
