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

      I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.   Way to go on the muskie.

      Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion.   read it in the Duluth news tribune   https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4731617-Iowa-angler-lands-monster-musky-on-Lake-Vermilion

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.

      On the south end...  A fantastic week of fall walleye fishing.  Walleyes in good numbers across the south shore of Lake of the Woods.  Most popular depths are 14 - 24'.  Anchoring up with a jig with frozen shiner is the ticket.  Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well.  Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught.  Jumbo perch and pike in the mix.  Walleyes also being caught around Knight and Bridges islands and structure off of Long Point and Rocky Point. On the Rainy River...   Strong reports this past week and weekend of good numbers of walleyes along with some big walleyes taken.  Fish in spots with current breaks from mouth of river to Birchdale.  There is still a strong current and fish are congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore, behind points or holes in river.  7-16' a good start depending upon the spot.  Very good reports this week.  Have jigs up to 1.5 oz if in the main channel, lighter jigs in slack water.  Many personal best walleyes and sturgeon this week. Up at the NW Angle...  Walleyes in traditional fall spots.  Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish.  Jigging continues to be the go to method.  Big black crappie and jumbo perch bite happening also.  Traditional fall muskie bite continues strong, lots of fish boated.

      Anyone ever find one that works? My truck topper light wiring got corroded from the salt spray coming in during the winter.
