Please remember to buy your new fishing licenses before hitting the water!  We are swinging by the store tonight and buying ours just so we do not forget!  I can about immagine that gamewardens will be out checking!

Good Idea!  I usually fold mine up into 5 folds so it folds up into my billfold easier.

I had the CO inform me of this on the lake Friday.  Duh - Slap head.  Before I left town, I was on my way to get a new one and totally forgot about it.  So when he asked where my 17 license was, I first initially thought he was talking about my sled registration, then it dawned on my, he was talking about the fish license.  I only got a verbal warning, nice of him.  He said I should not continue fishing illegally but understood internet access where we were was not good and I should head closer to shore to renew.  I asked if I was the only one for the day.  Answer was no, about a 1/3 had expired licenses - go figure.  


After he left, I called my wife and she got me a spouse license, photo'd it and texted it to me with 15 minutes.  So good to go.


He popped some guys next to me for cleaning fish on the lake and not leaving skin patches and not keeping the carcasses.  They were told to eat them immediately.

He's only doing his job but I feel if your fair and willing to listen to what he says they are more then fair on not issuing a ticket.  I've had guys get cocky or smart to them and boom tickets get issued instantly.  Sucks if your in a group and the first one up opens mouth and inserts foot instead of being polite.  We went the other night and both of us got our licenses so we wouldn't have to worry.  Girlfriend did take a pic and saved it on her phone so if she forgets it in her purse she can show the picture as hopefuly proof.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
