I have been watching all the posts, but can't figure out which day I should go out this week. I have the whole week off and want to get my son on the lake. Has anyone got a report of how the waves are like the past few days? N.O.A.A. says it will blow about the same everyday out of the East, Northeast. Just trying to save a few bucks on fuel (so I don't have to turn around mad). Thanks! BC

I just looked at the weather and Friday or Saturday look like the best days. IF THE FORECAST IS RIGHT, Saturday would be my pic.

Thats what I am hearing also. Unfortunatley, my son will be with the scouts in the B.W.C.A. at that time, so he would miss out.

Maybe Thursday if the wind lays down. BC

For you I hope she's nice. I live twenty some miles away from her and can't even begin to tell you how many times over the years we have been shut out. She's tempermental, just ask the local forecaster's whistle BC

My son sure is Randy. He hunted the youth hunt last fall and shot his first two ducks ever. We will not be going to Canada this year, but will hit it hard here in Minnesota. Might plan a trip back to Winnie, it's been a few years. How about yourself? I suppose ya got plans for the river again. We were just downtown and the big pond had one footers with quite a bit of chop. I plan on running there early in the a.m. to see if she will let me try and take a few of her bounty wink BC

Dang right it is man. CONGRATS! Thats a fish of a lifetime for many many people dude. Make sure you put that one on the wall it looks massive even in the pic.

I may head out today and try to catch it again or one even bigger. My wife would $#@! herself if she caught one like that. Heck I might. grin

Oh and GOOD JOB on releasing her for someone else to catch some day.

By the way did ya see my 33"er swimming with her by any chance? Some day some day.

Got out this morning and launched at Mcquade at 6:30am. Two fish on, two fish off right away. Fished a total of eight hours and got only one more bounce on the rod, to no avail. Beautiful day until the N.E. wind started to show. Back at the launch three other party's had similar luck, two hit's and one fish, one small laker and lost a large one that broke line. Overall the fishing appeared not well. We tried meat on flies behind flashers, spoons with dodgers, clean spoons, heck we even threw a 57 chevy bomber at them. Not good. Not much for marks down below either. I hope you guys do better than we did for this coming weekend. I will probably bow out for a while after this one. Gas is having a lot to say over my decision also. Godd luck. BC

Marine General had a batch of custom 57 chev Brads made up and I got a few along with the reverse 57's. I think they still have some left but lots of the custom colors are gone already. Call them and see.

Last I heard they were out of the 57 chevy's for this season, but are taking names/pre-orders? for a batch to be made for next year. Word had it that they brought in 400 in 2008? and all were spoken for over at least 2 months ago.

Makes sense. Therefore I have 10-57 chev Brads going for $25 a pop. Just jokin guys. wink

get on the list now because they do move fast. I do find that the reverse 57 works just as good at most times though.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      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!
    • Better Than Working!
      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!
