Just returned from Lockport and the St. Andrews dam on the lower Red River this morning, it was piggy city man!

My buddy Shanon Bredeson and I hosed the Sumo Piggys big time! We caught 50 cats that went PAs in 3 days and NIGHTS, many more piglets too, nights were very good to us.

We caught so many 25 to 30 pound plus Piggys that you wouldnt believe it if I listed them all, so I will just say this..... AWSOME......ARRRR----ARRRRR----ARRRRRR!!

Bad deal was on Sat when they shut the dam down it slowed things a lot. This may change again fast at night as soon as they adjust again.

The frogs were hot, so were shrimp at night on 6-8 inside bends down from the diversion. Some hot float action on sand points with scattered rock near the channel.

Had a blast! Hooked Shanon on cats for good I think?

Thanks for fishing with me up North Eh ther "Big Bud" Eh.

Shanon can you say "Hay Eh, its a SUMO Piggy?

Sounds like you had a good time up there. Congrats.

I went out to D+H to get some frogs but they were spoken for so got some large suckers instead and a thing they call a waterdog thrown in. It looks like a newt to me but has gills. I was thinking a mudpuppy but I don't know.

They were selling them for bait so is very common but I couldn't bait him up and put it in my aquarium. Too cute to bait up for me.

I guess I'm a softie, aye

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
