I don't know if any of you in here are members of the Minnewawa Sportsmens Club, but I owe them a HUGE thank you. I am in the Minnesota Guard and am over in Iraq currently. For Christmas I received a nice folding multi-tool that is a great gift. Thank you to those who contributed. If you would like to say hello feel free to email me at [email protected]

No.... Thank you for serving for us. Come home soon. The fish are waiting.

Do you read the Outdoor News? If so, they currently are running Operation Keep in Touch or something like that. They are send copies to men and women in Irag. I could get more info if you interested.

Yes I get it every week here as long as the mail is delivered on time. My parents actually had a photo in the Reader's Shots section back in October if I remember right. It was a bass I caught and released on Hickory Lake, just a few miles south of Aitkin. Thanks

I don't know him but I bet I have seen him while fishing on the lake. I stay at the campground that is on the 169 side of the lake

First off, thanks for being there for us. secondly, do you know Phil Hylar? I know he is in the signal corp and beleive he is with your group. When here, he was a sous chef at our restaurant, Canyon Grille in coon Rapids.
I hear from him from time to time so have a grasp for what you guys are up against.

Good Luck, keep your head down and say hi to Phil from Roy if you get the chance.

      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.
