All Quiet on the Western Front??

I left the "no fire" zone and the safe confines of the Hillman store and crossed the DMZ preparing for the worst. My destination was the disputed territory known as the "Gaza Strip" grin I kept a close look out for abandoned plow trucks, burning Humvees, and fish house obstacles but made it safely to the Holy Land with out any mishaps except for a couple of wrong turns. The Triangle swallowed one of my rods but Kelly P came to the rescue. He caught a keeper walleye in one of my holes and attached to the fish was my other rod.

You're right, that's taking customer service to a whole new level. As for the Gaza Strip, I've always thought of Hillman's driveway to the lake as a haunted graveyard occupied by the tortured souls of abused plow trucks. My Chevy always gets nervous driving through there.

Yup, it took all of 5 mimutes in your house to discover one you and Doc's problems. Keep the rod ABOVE the ice and you'll catch more fish. grin As far as Fred I thought it was one of his better times. At least he didn't do it on you leg. grin

Reminds me of the first time Twitter and Tigger met. Twitter invited Tigger to join him in his portable to do some fishing. Strange sight as Twitter is 6'4" and Tigger is almost 5'. But in any case they both loved Crown Royale so they took Twitter's bottle into the portable and stuck Tiggers bottle in the snow in front of the door to keep it properly chilled. After a few hours they reached out to get Tiggers bottle. That was when they discovered that Twitter's dog had hosed down the bottle and it was attached to 10 pounds of yellow snow. grin

Gotta go now as Fred is trying to hide behind me and Patsy is yelling something about BAD DOG!!!!! I just hope she is yelling at Fred. confused

      Any updates as to the slush conditions on Vermilion, particularly off the staked trails?

      Yeah I tried the wrench yesterday. I Can't get it to move with a load on it. With no load on the jack it does go up and down with the electric motor though. I ended up ordering a whole new jack since they're only $200. This one I'll take apart and try to fix it and keep it as a spare.

      Was out checking ice.....on west side....even though there is good ice closer to shore, when neighbor was trying to plow a road out farther, a lot of water was coming out of a crack. Please do not go out with a larger truck!!!!!

      I'm also thinking about going up this weekend. We were thinking about Barnacles or Red Door. It will be our first time out of either resorts. Any recommendation or opinions about the resorts and their roads? Thanks in advance!

      Thank you.. and thanks for the advise on the Duluth forum! I will look that up and subscribe.

      Thanks for your response! Sounds like fishing is pretty much the same on this end as Ontonagon. Aside from the rock reefs and possibility of snags on the bottom. I don't run lead core but have a pair of downriggers and some dipsies. I fish a lot on the surface with my Otter Boats with Rapalas and some spoons. I always run at least one dodger or flasher in the mix with a Howie's fly or a spin n glo behind it. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it! Hopefully I can have a good weekend fishing!

      Glad your back Bryan! So far my season hasn't been one for the books but it haven’t been horrible. I’ve been waiting for your videos good to see your back man!

      Thanks for the input!  I definitely don't want to snag one of my rigger weights! I have otter boats I run off a mast on both side of the boat. I run surface spoons and stick baits off the lines. Works well out of Ontonagon and sounds like it will work here also. I have a few dipsies also but do not have lead core on any of my set ups. I run a flasher or dodger on one of my lines also. Usually on one of my dipsies. I pretty much sounds like fishing off Ontonagon except for the snags on the bottom of the north shore. Thanks for your wisdom! I appreciate it!

      I drove by the lake this weekend and saw a large amount of vehicles and houses out there.  We are finding the crappies either out deep in the holes suspended or they are hugging weeds.  I know huge difference but don't be afraid to go shallow or deep.  I wasn't too far from Crystal fishing 6 feet of water Saturday fishing cabbage and getting a mixed bag of panfish, pike, and bass coming through.
