Hi Dave! Haven't talked with you in a while. How's the fishing been for you?

I saw in another post you've got the barge going good. Brought back good memories of our trip to Moose in May.

We're coming up again to Cedarwild in August, I think it's the 16th thru the 23rd? Are you available for any fishing time? Sure sounded like fun when you mentioned drifting the sunken islands at night fishing for eyes . . .

hey there sloop! we (putz, uncle nutsy and i) went out the other night and fished after dark. we got two eyes at 16.5" and 18.5" missed three more bites. it has been a dry spell, for about 3 weeks, and that was a warm welcome. it was very nice out, cool breeze and nice starry sky.
i put a head gasket in the old evinrude 35 horse, and she runs like a champ. i think i will run that old ship till it comes time to scuttle her on the big red some where. i think she would make a nice crappie crib smile.gif
i know i have a ****ed wedding to attend around the 16th of august. but other than that, i might be able to squeak away. it's a wait and see deal.
the humps can be great fun at night. i like the sligtht breeze, and clear sky, but i will go any time i can afford to get away really.
i have had a career change recently, so i'm not sure on my schedule yet. i do know i am going to be at I.B.O.T. fest on the 26th of this month!! i would be looking forward to a night out on the moose with ya if we can swing it. keep in touch...good fishing!!

keep your drinks on ice!!! jigglestick I.B.O.T.#5 have you clamped today???

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
