Happy Thanksgiving all!

Recommended Posts

I hope all you piggy hunters are well and fit to belly up to the turkey today with friends and family. We Americans can be thankful for many things as we live in a land of plenty.

Enjoy the holiday and say a prayer for our men and women in service to our country, and for all in need who are less fortunate in these trying times we all live in.

God Bless.

Happy Turkey-Day to all (one day late). Dittos on the wish to the guys and gals who fight for something bigger than any of us.
Ed, the offer still stands if you'd like to get out and smack some honkers. I've had pretty good luck lately.
Any recent word from the Red around here?

Eh Scoot, would be fun doing the feather bag hunt deal but I am not set up for it this season, but thanks for the offer man.

The Red has been good for some and not so good for me, slow most days recently. If you slip jig the most likely areas they would hold walleye during the day you will find a few good fish, some piggys too.

If the weather holds I hope to get out again this afternoon and see if they are willing to play mouth the jigs. Cranks have been dead the past week for me. Jigs and floating rigs have produced the best on average tipped with big fathead minnows. White appears to be the best jig color followed by orange.

      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.
