We had 4 inches in Duluth, but most of it is gone with the rain today (9-30). I heard on the radio that Ely got 7 inches. Everything we got was wet slush.

The snow varied greatly here at Kab we had 4 inches, and or had at least 5-7. Everything has melted for the most part, however it has snowed on and off today, with no acculmulation. If it gets cold the snow might stay. For what its worth, fishing is fairly good down by the mouth of Ash River and a few other spots. Conditions are however miserable.

Just got back to St. Cloud from the cabin. Yeah the snow up there was gone but we had a great time getting ready for the opener next weekend. We already have 2" of snow today. Next weekend looks to be promising as the bucks are already making scrapes. Anyway good luck to all the hunters.

Well its snowing pretty good today the are is expecting maybe 3-5" by the weekend, no meltdown in site, looks like mid 20's for highs. Don't expect t-shirt weater like the past.

Its stacking up to be one of the best lookin openers in a long time. The bucks are really on the move, I don't think we are in full rut, but close.

Godd luck to you, Kab is still open for fishing, but ice might move in towards weekend, except at the river openings.

Larry K,
How did you do on Camp 90 for the opener. I have a cabin on Gannon.

ICatcher, We did extremely well. We got 22 deer for 15 guys. We could have shot more but that was enough meat for us. No real monsters but some nice average bucks. Our neighbors didn't do very well though. They had one deer for 6 guys and the other neighbors only had a few deer for around 8-10 guys. But they had a 14 pointer that was a dandy. The guy shot it in the leg and trailed it for 9 miles before it tired out and they got close enough to finish it off. LUCKY for snow. They also walked across the Ash River. The day after it was open. How about you?

LarryK,
We did well. 5 bucks for 7 guys for 4 days. Passed on 4, all 8 pointers. We got 1 140 class buck that we trailed for 2 1/2 miles. Hardly no blood but we kept after it. Searched for hours at a time in some spots. One spot we found a little blood and searched the entire area for about 2 hours and the whole time he was laying about 20 yards from where we were. Just didn't see him. He was still alive.Walked up to him and poked him with the gun. Didn't move. Touched his rump with my foot and he jumped up and squared off on us. Thought he was gonna charge us. Finished him with a good shot. Exciting highlight of the trip. Going to LOW on the 19th. Can't wait.

Icatcher, What a story, thats one to tell the grandkids someday. Good Luck up at LOW. I won't be going up there until after the New Year. But hoping to get to Red for a few days to get some slabs. Unless we can get out on Kab then I'll be going there instead. Larry

LarryK,
We are on the corner of the Gannon and Ash River. We can go by boat or we can come in the back way on atv's. I take it you guys come in the back way? Do you know the little falls guys?

I think so. They are the guys that used to camp in tents for a number of years aren't they. They built a cabin down on the river bottom. I think I know which cabin is yours. Did you have a kid recover his forkhorn buck on your land this year? My cabin is the two story with gray vynl siding before the gate.

LarryK,
Yes they use to camp in tents. We have a cabin right across the Gannon Creek from them. I'm not sure if we had someone recover a deer on our land. I don't remember that. But I'm usually gone all day hunting. Nice cabin you have. I'll have to stop in and say hi someday on the way in.

The reason I asked about the kid recovering his deer is because it was my younger cousin. He was hunting on the ridge that I hunt. (ridge on the left just before you go down the hill to the creek) He said the guy and his kid gave him a ride around to his four-wheeler after and helped drag it out. What a nice guy. But I talked to my cousin and he thinks the guy said he's from Sandstone. Yeah our cabin is pretty decent we had to add on to it in 97 because our family has gotten so much bigger. The first part was built in 63. Its kind of funny but there are 7 owners in it and its all family. Even our deer hunting group of 15 is all family. But it can only get one bigger as my 11 year old will begin hunting next year. He can't wait. Another one of the owners and one of my cousins are going up there tomorrow for four days deer hunting. One with a bow and the other with a muzzleloader. I'll have to let you know how they do. Feel free to stop in any time I'm there I'm sure I'll have a beverage in the fridge for you.

      Where are you located?

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
