Well glad I went to this.! The carvings,  working decoys and custom spears were amazing some peoples talents  are truly inspiring! The items there brought back some great memories of me and my fathers spearing days together. 😀 Had the good fortune of running into Smurfy we had a good chat both of us were blown away by a hand carved ruffed grouse on a log it was absolutey one of the best pieces i've ever seen the detailing was behond imagination.  Price was $3,000 which explains the workmanship and time put into it I should of took a pic. Smurfy introduced me to Mike 89 it was great to finally meet you hopefully in the future we will get more time to know each other. . Thanks again for posting this show I guarantee ill be back again next year.

It ain’t over already is it?  

 

I asked my my wife if she wanted to go instead of installing her new kitchen appliances.  Guess which one she picked?  I’ve been to that show a couple times.  Always plenty to look at but the high point would’ve been pressing the flesh with you other site members. 

 

And I actually mean that. 👍

Hats off to you Mike I couldn't believe the amount of people there. The place was packed definitely had to be a little stressfull keeping things in order. Wanderer would of been a blast to meet you.  As  avid  waterfowler myself I like you appreciate good wood decoys. Especially some of the old working gunning decoys of years past. One display had some of the old herters cork working decoys from the 40's 👍 I have some of the herters myself and a few of the old paper decoys on display myself.  Things of beauty for sure with some serious history behind them.

      There is still a lot of ice out there, my best guess is that it should be pretty much ice free by the opener. Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      Launched out of mcquade and ran down to the entrance today. Played bumper boats and went 10/11 on coho. Beautiful day!!!

      How's the ice melt looking?
    • DLD24
      I'll let ya know how rugged it is, it spent about 2 hours underwater when I put my wheeler through the ice a month ago. I'm scared to try and turn it on haha.
    • ifishwalleye
      Just wondering how much ice is left?
    • bassbouncer
      I was in the Landing today to do some troubleshooting. Looks the same as it did. They’re working at getting ready.

      Thanks Borch:  this helps! I emailed the whole committee--hopefully one of them sees the ridiculousness in this. Basically:   1.)  the DNR set up a pilot.   2.)  The DNR analyzed their results and refused to enlarge the scope of the pilot 3.)  Legislature will, if passing this amendment, force the DNR expand a program that their own conclusions did NOT support expanding.  (* this is the time to insert your own clever comments about government doing stupid things contrary to evidence...)   Anyone that enjoys using the numerous MN lakes with public accesses NEEDS to take an active roll in this--let's overwhelm the server with emails from concerned fishers!; If we don't, I worry more and more lakes (associations) will place more and more barriers (in the "name" of AIS) to practically make the public lakes private...

      A bear in a residential area of North St. Paul was shot and killed today by a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer as authorities determined the animal posed an immediate safety threat.  The bear was a male and estimated as a two-year old, about 110 – 120 pounds. The bear carcass will be processed and the meat will be distributed to people in need of food. Due to the density of residences and roads in this area, it was unlikely that the bear would have been able to escape to more suitable habitat, especially during daylight hours and during the morning rush hour. Growing interest in the bear’s location was leading to a gathering of onlookers. Bears can become agitated and pose a danger to humans when they become trapped or cornered as this bear had become in the neighborhood tree. Law enforcement is authorized to dispatch bears in the metro area if they pose a public safety threat. The DNR does not tranquilize or relocate bears. Relocated bears seldom remain where they are released. They may return to where they were caught or become a problem somewhere else. It is not unusual for people to see bears in the spring as young males search out new territories. They are also are looking for food sources at a time when berries and vegetation are scarce. If people encounter a bear, the first thing they should do is back away slowly. They need to give the bear an escape route and make noise to scare the bear away. People should also clean-up and remove potential attractants such as bird feeders, garbage, and compost bins to reduce the chances of bears moving into developed and residential areas. Bear sightings outside of their primary northern forest range can be reported on an interactive map-based application on the Minnesota DNR website at mndnr.gov/hunting/bear/bear-sightings.html. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A buddy and I fished Warroad yesterday, 730-400 5-fish biggest 39. We talked with a local guy who lives on the river said they have not came in hard yet. The 39 and 36 we caught were not spawned out. So we will give it another try next week. Also the ice seems to be going pretty fast  open I would say pretty close to a mile out, when it opened up in front of the docks 4-days ago, and its gonna get better.  Stay Safe Good Luck  Bear55

      Does anyone know where I can find out which lakes smothered out in the southern Minnesota areas? I have looked on the DNR website and can't seem to find out any information there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
