I just picked up the Aviation Weather forecast and it looks at this time anyway, subject to change, that the biggest amounts of snow will be south of the LOW area. From Bemidji eastward and down through central Minnesota. They are forecasting 4-8" in the St Cloud area, and only 2-3" in Mpls. Sure glad I put a blade on my ATV last week, now I can sit back and just push. Bill

late night

They are saying up to 8 inches for Brainerd. I hope they are wrong. I have spent more time shoveling my truck off the lake in the past two days than I care to admit.

Wildeskimo: I was off Wheelers Point over Pine right after Xmas and they had a lot of snow then. Adrians was doing a great job as always with the main ice road. Lots of wheel houses out there, coming and going. I would touch base with Adrians if you have any questions about the roads, as you also need to pick up the road pass from them. Can't help you with any of the other access points. Bill

It was slow compared to years past. Just didn't mark much on the vex. The fish that showed up were agressive, but it didn't appear to be the concentration of fish as in past years. It was still a good time though. The B/S was flying around the shack pretty good. Amazing how many jokes get told when you're passing time. I did put a report out Riverbend 26-28 if you're interested. Headed back a week from tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Bill

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.   
    • PSU
      Excellent Del, closest one I have seen so far! Thanks a bunch, I'll check it out
    • delcecchi
      I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.   here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.     Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.
