Whewwwwww HOT!!!!!!!

I want to give out a special thanks to Reef Runner and the boys for meeting me friday night! Let me know if your coming back up during the month of august.

It was my sons B-day party this weekend which intailed bringing 2 more 10 year olds with to enjoy the weekend. We had to redicide Sat. schedule due to the heat factor. We ended up going over to the Savanah State Park. They have a swiming beach on Loon Lake. They also have hiking trails but not for this guy on a day like that! I give Loon Lake the highest recomendations to anyone kids or not to go and relax! Very peacefull with no boats running back and forth, clean clear water, playground for the youngsters, and of course very nice people.

Saturday evening I loaded up the three boys and headed for the lake for some evening slip-bobber fishing. We were held up for 10 minutes due to towing in a couple on a stranded jet-ski that were trying to swim it back. We fished the battle Island spot I did well at last week. When we arrived I was informed by the first young adult that "I'm a caster! Bobber fishing bores me!". My son was kind/smart anuff to stop him before he got out of hand. He then politely sat and waited his turn to get his line set up. I did let him cast his plug a few times while he was waiting and it did produce one of our walleys. By night fall we had caught and released 8 wall dogs and one perch and much to my surprise never had a boater around us. There were a ton of people fishing in the hillcrest area but received no reports due to the fact I had to leave early on Sunday to make it to the game fair. I had tipped a few people on this spot this weekend but know one showed up. The wall dogs ranged from 12" to 17" and would of made a great meal. We were using slip-bobbers w/ pink and chartruse lead heads. The best was a chartruse and orange "Fliry Girty". Some of the ice fisherman will know this lure. The make them in bigger sizes than most people see. I stuck with a Techno-fuzzy and hung it over the boat and never touched it till I seen it getting tapped. Leeches big leeches which I still can't find localy in the Mcgregor area. I am still picking up before I get there.
I will be up again this weekend hopfully kidless so drop me a note if anyone wants to get together!

      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.
