If the fish are biting of course. Nice turnout of about 30 kids last weekend, grand prize at the drawing was a 50 dollar savings bond, several nice rod and reels given away and a few small tackle boxes. After that the remaining kids stood in line for variuos tube baits ect.. so everyone went home with something. Obviously the adults where more into the fishing than the kids ,and after about an hour ,several holes where minus a few young fisherpeople as it was more fun to slide on the ice and play tag than fish. Still, a good time had by all.

I won't be there this weekend, but plan on the outing in Febuary.

      Live to hunt another day by wearing a life jacket or float coat Hunters hitting the water this fall in pursuit of ducks, geese and other waterfowl are reminded to include life jackets on their hunting gear checklist.  “Hunters in Minnesota are trained from a young age to always put safety first,” said Lt. Adam Block, boating law administrator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division. “For duck and goose hunters, that means always wearing a life jacket on the water – no exceptions.” More waterfowl hunters die every year from drowning than from other types of hunting incidents. Swamping, capsizing and falling overboard are all common factors leading to these deaths, but in nearly all cases the hunters would have survived had they been wearing a life jacket. “Before launching the duck boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket or float coat,” Block said. “It’s the one item that greatly increases your odds of surviving a water emergency and living to hunt another day.” The wide variety of comfortable, camouflage life jackets designed specifically for waterfowl hunting includes inflatable vest and belt-pack styles, insulated flotation jackets, and foam-filled shooting vests with quilted shoulders and shell loops. “Typical foam-filled vests or float coats provide optimal insulation against cold air and the effects of hypothermia, but without question, the best life jacket for waterfowl hunting is the one you will actually wear,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR boating and water safety outreach coordinator. “Choosing a life jacket style that works for you, and wearing it every time you’re on the water, is not only a good choice – it’s the best choice you can make.” At the very least, all boats must carry one U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, and boats longer than 16 feet must also have a throwable flotation device immediately available. Children under 10 must wear a life jacket. Other water safety tips for duck hunters include: Don’t overload the boat; take two trips if necessary. If wearing hip boots or waders, learn how to float with them on. Stay near shore and avoid crossing large expanses of open water, especially in bad weather. Share trip plans with someone and advise them to call for help if you do not return on schedule. Use a headlamp, spotlight or navigation lights to alert other boaters to your presence in dark and/or foggy conditions. Carry a cell phone or personal locator beacon in case of emergency. Visit mndnr.gov/boatingsafety to download the DNR’s “Water Safety for Duck Hunters” brochure and learn more about water safety for hunters. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Water has skimmed over in half of Pike Bay (as far as I can see) this morning, it will leave but kind of early. I live on north side of the Bay.

      I had this issue in that area this past summer.  Surprisingly, virtually every resort and hotel in that area does not allow pets (not sure why).  So I said screw it, and we booked a 5 night stay at someone's personal cabin through airbnb instead.  It worked out pretty well, and we were right on the water of a small lake about 15 miles south of Brainerd.  The cabin we stayed at was comparable to a resort/hotel rate if not less.
