To all interested,
It is believed that Dru Sjodin's body was found around the Crookston area some time today. Law enforcement is currently gathering more information and a press conference will be at 3:00 p.m.

God bless Rusty (Whiskers Guide Service), all other law enforcement involved and all of the volunteers helping.

Looking at it one way, it's a crying shame that we have creeps that will do this type of thing. Another way to look at it, maybe now her family and friends can put some sort of closure to this.

It was dru that was found.. the coverage is on fox news.

I just want to thank, and honor ALL those people that NEVER gave up hope and continued to search even when this got glim.

Now that dru is found, im sure her family and friends will now be able to rest knowing dru is now in a better place.

god bless to everyone, and my prayers are with family and friends...

Again, just want to honor all that never gave up.


I also ask the moderator to post this thread to all forums in FM...

My thoughts and prayers go out to Dru's family and friends. This is a very sad day but I hope it brings closure for everyone.

Its time to let our criminal justice system do its work and I hope justice comes quickly for Mr. Rodriguez.

Although my heart is heavy with the sadness of this situation...part of me is overwhelmed by how people responded.....its great living in this part of the country... where people come together and help each other in the darkest times.

The problem is they will only lock this creep up and forget about him. They need a better solution. This kind of thing tears me up.

When I watched the coverage on this case last fall I was struck by the sudden sense of mortality that her sorority sisters showed. Suddenly they were no longer ten feet tall and bullet proof, like most 18-22 year olds with their lives ahead of them tend to be.

Then there was the rash of adbuction hoaxes in the region. Stores sold out of pepper spray and in my community self defense classes couldn't keep up with demand. The local student who babysits for me asked me to teach her to shoot because her uncle had bought her a gun!! She didn't want a gun so I told her to give it back and I bought her a personal alarm.

This sort of thing victimizes everyone. Right now I hope the media gives the family some space and I wonder where they will ever find a jury.

Thank you all for your warmest thoughts..

I only did my part as best I could.. As well as did every one else that helped.. I spent more time on the water sice the ice let out than I think the last two summers put together..I think I almost wore out the gas tank on my boat.

I believe that all the prayers and thoughts of Dru helped us bring this to a close..

If there is anything good that came out of this it is the way the Legal system is now looking at Repete offenders and Hight level offenders when released.. Even violence crimes between men and women.. The courts are dealing with them to the upmost..

Believe it or not, the Media also is a big help.. With out them helping to keep the story alive, such cases as this can so easly be swept under the rug and forgotten.. Even with the big news over East, they still kept on top of this local tragity.

I spent much time with Dru'e Dad over the last few weeks.. That man is a saint.. I'm not so sure I could have conducted myself so coltrolled as he and his family have through all of this.... . My hats off them......

I'm not so sure I will ever be able to look at the river and this area the same ever agian with out saying a prayer and thinking of them..............

Excuse my ignorance here- I was out of town over the weekend and didn't get my hands on a paper last night. Sounds like her body was found in the Red Lake River? Is that right?
This mess has stuck with me for quite a while now, like it has for a lot of people. God bless Rusty and everyone who stuck with the recovery efforts.

Scoot, Her body was found in the big ditch at breeds West of Crookston on the river road, where we used to have kegs. I think you know where I mean. Anyway Its a sad story that can be put to rest. Prayers go out to family and friends. God Bless.

      On the south end...   Ice fishing continues strong and it is still winter on the border.    Overnight temps in the teens and twenties are maintaining ice nicely.  Fishing continues to be excellent.  It has been an incredible year for walleyes and saugers with both numbers and size.     Resort fish houses and sleeper fish houses are available.  Some ice roads are allowing pickup trucks pulling wheelhouses as well.  Check with each individual ice road for specific limits.   As always, and certainly this year, it is important to stay on the resort ice roads.  It is tempting to go off on your own as there isn't much snow, but that is a risky move any time of the year.  Resorts and outfitters keep their roads on the best ice and monitor it numerous times per day.   Lake of the Woods enjoys an extended ice fishing season each year.  Fish houses are allowed on the ice through March 31st, the walleye / sauger season goes through April 14th and the pike season never ends.   The majority of ice fishing for walleyes and saugers is taking place in 24 - 34 feet of water.  Jigging one line and using a live minnow on the second line is the way to go.   Pike anglers fishing shallower shoreline breaks and reporting good activity and big fish.  Pike activity will only increase as we approach the month of March.  Arming your spread with a mixture of live and dead baits will allow you to quickly figure out what the pike wants that day. Alewife, smelt, herring, numerous sizes of live suckers, or even large shiners work well. On the Rainy River...  Most ice fishing is taking place on the lake.  There are a couple of resorts that ice fish on the Rainy River.  Know ice conditions or work through a resort or outfitter for safety.    The river is open east of Birchdale.  Those who enjoy the spring open water season on the river are optimistic the river will open early.  Is your boat and fishing gear ready when it does? Up at the NW Angle...   Another very good week of ice fishing up at the Angle.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout, pike and some big crappies in the mix.   Water conditions are clearer this winter compared to most.  For that reason, the morning and evening bites have been stronger than midday overall. Jigging one line and deadsticking the second line is the way to go.  Electronics help in determining what the fish want that given day and will up your catch of fish.   Ice fishing has been excellent, come on up.  It's still winter on the border!

      There's only one Waterfowl guide in the country that I went to. He runs about 20 trips a year. So he harvests about 185,000 less teal a year than some of the individual southern states. In MN, lots of the teal are gone before the early teal season

      Wow, don't want to be one of those guys.  But, you don't think such liberal limits down there, hurts the northern population next spring?

      Kettle..........we really didnt have a winter.......even up in your neck of the woods!!!!!👍🤣

      I only duck hunted this trip. Definitely going back next year. Winter gets too long for me. I met some amazing people and might help with guiding for them in the future. Would love to escape a month or two every winter

      just seen a show about duck and dove hunting down that way, Scoot Lyseth and the Dead Meat show!!

      I think it was opened so I don't think I would trust it.  I will find use for the wooden blocks however.

      Some morons just shouldn't be allowed out on the ice. Thanks for pitching in to clean it up.   On the bonus side, is it a quart of oil that you can use?
