Anyone have any luck today with all the wind? No lake names but maybe FOW or structure.

Was out on Centerville today from 2-6:15pm with a buddy. From 2-4:30 saw fish on the Marcum, but no takers, but did lose one on the tip-up. Moved about 100 yards away from where we initially were about 250 yards away from the crowds and seemed like we hit the jackpot. We were hitting 8-10" bluegills as fast as we could bring them up. Between the both of us, we limited out in an hour and a half. Plus we threw back about 15. We were fishing in about 10-12 fow. Was using wax worms.

It was nice, had a lot of fun. It's really nice when you have days like this. But as you know and as anyone will tell you stay away from the crowds.

I was well away from crowds-mostly cause I hate when people set up next to me and start up the augers. Never fish next to people-there are always good places where no one is fishin

Another thing I normally do is punch more holes than I need, say 6 to 12 holes, sometimes up to 18. That way you can jump from hole to hole if things are slow, and you won't have to worry about spooking the fish because your holes have already been drilled. Then from time to time you can use your flasher to check to see if there is fish within that hole.

Was on bald eagle and had more fun chasing down garbage in the wind than I did fishing. 3 of the smallest perch I've ever caught in my life!

No, I was on the SE side of the island. The battery on my vex died after about 2 hours so I packed it in early.

      I will be, but I'm going to be sad since all the perfect hunting weather over the last three days rolls out just in time for opener 🤦‍♂️

      Yes that is correct. Try the BWCA forum. Cliff

      Water temp is 67 degrees in Stillwater this morning.  You can find the water temp from the following website.  Hopefully it's ok to post it.    https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=05341550

      I apologize for bumping this old topic, but I have done quite a bit of research on this, so I want to share my experience. We have one, but it is not the most heavily used piece of furniture in the house. It's in the study, so that one of us can be reading while the other is on the Internet or doing desk work, i.e., we can still be in the same room for conversation. Although it's one of the less expensive models, it is wonderfully comfortable.

      The main price differences are due to the amount of padding from one model to another, and the grade of leather in which you choose to have it finished. Also, some have attached headrests or headrest pillows. Unless the manufacturing policy has changed, some (all?) models are also available in microfiber cloth upholstery rather than leather.

      One of the main advantages of the product line is that most of the models come in a choice of sizes, so that it's possible to match the model to the size of the person most likely to be using it. For example, the Diplomat, Consul, and Ambassador--still the least expensive models, I think--are all the same shape and have the same stitch pattern on the upholstery but are different sizes of the same chair for different sizes of bodies. . . . If multiple people will be sharing a single chair, however, it is generally best to pick the size appropriate to the largest person, i.e., largest basic body frame size. My wife is petite but still quite comfortable using the larger Ambassador.

      If searching online, Stressless is the U.S. product marketing name, but also look for "Ekornes" (Eh-kor-ness), the name of the Norwegian manufacturer. They do have occasional national sales, but not on any predictable schedule, or at least none whose timing I've been able to figure out.

      We bought our chair from Amazon https://10restbest.com/best-zero-gravity-chair the online name of a furniture store in central Massachusetts. I usually try to "shop local" and would have been glad to buy it from a local furniture store with whom we'd done business for years, but they would charge a $65 fee to transport it three miles to our house, whereas the place in Massachusetts offered free delivery. On YouTube there are a lot of interesting videos on this topic, I will share with you, one of them, hope this will help someone. Good luck

      History_Geek, I'm guessing the Vermilion area your referencing is the Vermilion by Hasting Minnesota/Wisconsin border area, this page is regards to Vermilion in northern Minnesota, approx. 200 miles north of that area your requesting info on. I have never seen a cat fish up here, they might be here I just have never seen one here. just saying. Good luck keep searching someone on FM will help with your ?.
