I do fish Kidder Dam, although not much this season so far. Word is it has picked up some.

I suspect today will be very busy at Kidder. Yesterday there were 5 boats on the dam and numerous shore anglers. Walleye and pike are biting well on jigs.

You do need to pay very CLOSE attention to the slot for keeper fish. It is being monitored very closely by the DNR & the NDG&F, as well as by the local sportsman.

Know the regs and have a tape measure. If you are too close to 18", it is better to toss them back and avoid the fine.

Every walleye from 18" to 28" is a mandatory immediate release.

Remember 2 Walleye less than 18 inches in Total Length and no more than 1 Walleye/Sauger or Saugeye Greater than 28 inches in Total Length.

The pike limit is still 3, with NO Northern Pike Greater than 27 inches in Total Length. Any pike larger then 17” is a mandatory immediate release.

We encourage everyone to release all big fish, bring a camera, get some memories on film, and hang them on the wall.

Double your fun, get the thrill of a catch and release, and opt for a replica mount if you need a fish on the wall.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
