hey grfm, i feel kinda dumb, but i forgot your first name.... confused.gif any way i saw some one called from your number yesterday. couldn't figure out who it was. i felt like crap yesterday, but started feeling a little more human by the after noon, so we went out on our little lake over here. we did o.k.
then sat by the fire till 11:00. we are heading to red some time this morning. we wont be back till later tonight. tomorrow would be a good bet to get together. i may try to call you from the truck on the way up to red. or on the lake while we are hammering them big slabs grin.gif or you could try to call me this morning too. what ever works.
later, jigglestick...

Hey jigglestick! It was great meeting you (and Andrew) last weekend. Thanks for the help!
The walleyes weren't cooperating on Moose very well (3 walleyes in two full days of fishing) but we ended up going to Winnie and doing well later in the week. I think Moose will pick up ion the nesxt week or two with some warmer weather.
Let me know if you need a fishing partner any more weekends this year. Pigsticka and I could maybe make a trip up if you're interested.
Also,my family and I will be up for another week in August at Cedarwild resort. I'll let you know when we're coming in case something works out.
It was fun for Nathan to go out in your 'Barge'. Nathan says thanks but he wants you to work on your netting tecnique!
;> ) Just rufflin' your feathers!

hey sloop! it was fun taking you guys out. i wish i would have had more time earlier. joe came up kind of last minute. we went out quite a bit this last weekend. we did real well also. sunday we caught 5 eyes during the day, and went back out after dark, and got 11 more! i only got 1 or 2, and goose did about the same. the boys got all the rest smile.gif man were they having fun. i caught about a 4 or 5 pound muskie close to where nathan caught his. i saw two more about 20 lbs, and 25 lbs!! the big one was in 10 feet with cabage honing in on a crippled perch. way cool. drop me a mail.
grfm--you should have come our way. we had a blast sunday. i lost you on the phone, i have that wonderful cell one service frown.gif it doesn't work very well by me. i will be going out saturday if you are interested. it should be fun, as long as the weather stays good. just fyi, we went to wabana on monday to fish sunnies, and we got about a dozen borderline to nice ones. they were not in heavy yet. another week or so i think.
one more trout lake to try, would be nickle. easy to get a canoe into, and fairly decent fishing from shore too. nice fish to boot.
drop me a line or mail if you want to go on saturday.

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
