I'm getting really excited for the ruffies this year. My pup injured himself early in the season last year so that sidelined us. Can't wait for the first walk in the woods!

the doves have been scarce, I had a chance at 2 this week, but decided they were out of range, and did not fire, that was it. looking forward to chasing grouse next weekend, I am thinking the woods will be busy with hunters on opener.

Well I talked to a few guides in the arrowhead that I know and it's not sounding good for numbers on grouse. I am going up to the cabin this weekend to mow the grass and get things ready for deer season. I will report how I do and what I see. I will also be scouting so newly logged areas for deer.

I jumped a few but only saw 3 that I could shoot at. 4 flew low and to close to the dog to shoot. The ones I shot at the pine trees to the shot. We did see 4 woodcock or heard 4 saw 2.

The birds were running off the trails and getting back in the bush quick. Finn did his job but the birds were so far back in the bush I could not see them. I went two for two yesterday but had 5 low flyers and some I heard but did not see. I sure love the north woods. PS there is a lot of moose running around I seen 4. Lots of tracks on the trails as well. Fall colors are popping so there is big numbers of people driving the back roads. I seen one accident I dodge truck flew past me and about a mile down the road a  Cadillac and the said dodge met. Please slow down on the little back roads.

Walked down the lane to check trail cams decided to bring shotgun with managed to get one dove. Should have had more but missed a couple and they others I had no shot as they disappear quick when the corn is over your head :crazy: Going to have to go back when I have more time to work the field good.  Went grouse hunting in morning but didn't flush any. We did flush 2 roosters though.

      I fish out of a wheel house, hub or flip. Over the years I have found a camera to be an extremely fishing tool as long as water is somewhat clear. (Dont work well on Red or LOTW). My Flasher or Showdown both mark fish before they show up on camera due to cone area greater than camera view. Biggest advantage over flashsr/showdown is the "light bite" which happens often on ice. With flasher, red (fish) consumes green (bait) turning green to red indicating fish on - setting hook and miss. With camera I see fish barley lip the minnow/worm/plastic often hold a few to 15 seconds than suck bait in and instentally spit it out aka the miss. With camera you see the suck in, set the hook, fish on. Watching the many behaviours really adds to wisdom. Sometimes like last Sunday watching my grandkids playing and learning with Gills & Perch was extreanily gratifying. My camera is self built, in a suitcase totally push button wireless to drop, retrive, rotate left/hight, one button record high def.

      😄 yeah, actual lumber would be littering.  I just meant that as a slang expression for wood, aka branches.     For what it’s worth, I think you know I’m also one who appreciates a good muskie and will gladly abide by conservation efforts for the specie.  I just don’t put any one fish higher above all others when it comes to the management of a lake.  Except maybe lake trout! 🙃

      Lake travel getting better...you can thank me for buying tracks 3 weeks ago!!!  LOL  Good thing is it'll make it easier to get around bad part is the sun will start eating up the ice quickly.

      Cell service is spotty but ATT is available several places on the lake.  You can also use the cell phone at the Sherrick's office in an emergency.  Just ask for Steve.  Call 937 244 1900 for any additional questions. Chuck Ziegler Owner

      The resort is under new ownership and  is open from May through September. There are 4 fully equipped rental cabins, which include boats, motors, full kitchen, generator, hot showers and flush toilets.  Parties of 6 or more pay $450.00 per person per week, all inclusive. Prices have been this low since the 1990's. Great fishing for walleye, northern, small mouth, perch, whitefish, and lake trout. Limited access lake, so the fishing pressure is very low. Located on Johnson Lake with access to Little Johnson and Spring Lake. Borders Voyagers National Park, and Superior National Forest. Call 937 244 1900 for details. Chuck Ziegler , Owner

      As for me I would prefer they pull those trophies out of the lake. Their reproductive ability is more limited and they are soon destined to become food for the ecosystem anyway.   I also advocate for encouraging harvest of year classes that are too large, such as the 2013 year class that will soon be protected. It's not always about me me me. Sometimes it's about what is best for the fishery.

      Does anyone have current knowledge on ice road distances? I know each resort will be different. Hearing roads are 20+ miles out from pine which would put them beyond garden. Heading up after the weekend and curious how far the roads are out. Any info helps, thanks guys. Enjoy fishing with the warm weekend!

      One has to wonder WHY such a fish was harvested.  Sure, you can keep one over 28 inches, but why would you?  Aint like you're gonna eat a fish that's over 22 years old and you can easily get a replica made instead of a skin mount.   I've already stated my opinion on winter anglers keeping fish when soft water anglers can't even target them via catch and release past Labor Day.  Its BS
