Closed roads

After this mornings rain West Wind has closed their road. I see on Jerry's Report that Roger's has also closed. Halad posted that Benz's is closed. I can not be sure but I did hear yesterday that Hudec's was closed and the phone is not being answered.
Mort's closed a couple of days ago. Hillman's is foot traffic only.
If a person wants to walk out there is room to park at the Waskish Beach.
Thanks everyone!!! smile.gif In the years to come we can look back at this year and smile. grin.gif

it's all just a blur. looking in my glove box at the access tickets, i think i need to get a season pass. hard to believe the ice season is over. like you kelly, i'm oddly looking forward to a break. a release from the grip, from the phenomena that takes hold and doesn't let go until there's no choice but to wait til open water. hard for one who's never been up there to understand. but all it takes is one successful outing to understand fully.a big thank you to every one who helped out myself and every one who i drug along with me. a big thank you to those who finaly made the trip with me, as the best part of going for me, is watching the expressions of disbelief, amazement, and pure child like excitement.what a great year!
will i be back? is a frogs @$$ water tight?
one week before i have to go back to work. time to take advantage of this beautiful weather and see how much my kids have grown. i hear my youngest is walking now.
go live life!!-------jigglestick-------

I imagine that there will be one hell of a party in the Waskish area tonight! Thank you everyone for a wonderful season. A special thanks to Kelly, you know how to take a trip and turn it into an adventure! Now you all deserve to go into hibernation for a while. Later.

The end of the year "party" was pretty much Tim and I sitting at the end of the bar and having two drinks each while looking at each other with that deer in the headlights look. Then off to get some sleep. smile.gif After all the people all winter there wasn't even one customer in the bar.
What a year! I met so many great new people this past winter and the worst thing is that it is all like a big blur.
I met "idiot's-son" the last 2 nights. While he may change the name we gave him he fits right in here with the rest of us. You're all gonna like him.
Friday night I shuttled out two guys from Iowa. One's brother had told him if they got their limit in one night and were back the next day that he would, "kiss their A** in the middle of main street at high noon".
I wish I could have been there for the show. smile.gif

The promise on Main Street never took place, he was to busy asking when the fish fry would be. He thought maybe we should go back this weekend, I said sorry, ice gear needs to be packed away, time to shoot some turkeys. I would like to thank Kelly for taking care of us Friday night, it was a long drive but well worth it, that last fix for the year was great. It was great meeting those of you from the forum in West Wind Friday night after fishing, I plan to spend more time there next ice season. Wishing you all a great boat season, I will keep my eye on the forum as first ice approaches, see you then.

Jitz...I hope you mean more time on the lake not in the bar...you'll end up turning out like us! grin.gif hehehe Glad you made it home alright Friday night, what kind of drive is that 7-8 hours? That would've put you in bed about the same time as us! You slid out of the bar just in time...it got crazy right after you left. You sure there isn't anyplace safer to fish between Waterloo and Waskish? Tell your brother we've given him a rain check...it'd be better to see it in person in Waskish next year than the pictures than the pictures now! smile.gif

Good Luck! See you next year!

It doesn't seem that long ago that I was at URL and they were just letting the trucks go out on the ice for the first time, but 8 trips and 36 friends later the season is over. My last trip was with the family for the week of April 6-12 Wife, son, son's friend, and I made 2 last trips out on to the ice. Mon. the 8th "I am sorry I am so bad at names" but the lady working in the tackle shop at WW gave me perfect direction to get on top of the fish. At 8;30 you couldn't keep them off the line. I quiet after a 1/2 hour just to watch the kids pull in fish after fish. Next days fish fry was the highlight of the year. Same results on Wed. All year and with everyone I brought up to URL, we always had a great time, even when we didn't catch limits. I have enjoyed the area for its hospitality at WW, Hilmans, Sandys and Hudec's. I have a cabin on the river so I don't spend as much time with the locals as I would like, but you have all made each trip a great experience. I have Ice fished, Open water fishing ,fall Northerens were great, Bear Hunted 3 for 4. Deer Hunted 1 for 5. Snowmobiled and Four wheeled. URL is a good as it gets. I will be back the week before opener looking for some spring Crappies. Most of all
THANK YOU!

LABS4ME - We did not drive home that night, we had a room at the Americ Inn in Blackduck, back on the road at 10:00 Saturday morning. I am glad we left Friday night when we did, it had already been a long day. Next ice season we will be looking for lodging closer so we can stay at the bar longer. As far as spending more time there next season, I hope to split my time equally between the hard water and the bar, hate to drive that far and not be socialable. Take care all and be careful in your boats.

Jitz

P.S. That "triangle thing" that seems to go on up there, according to my brother I haven't been quiet right since that trip, do you suppose that comes from being with Kelly-p or you guys in the bar?

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.
