To start, there is way too much to consider when it comes to giving thanks!

I just want to mention a few:

I often find myself taking for granted the opportunity I have to go fishing, when and where ever I want!

A state that holds endless fishing opportunities that we can freely explore!

A wife who often sacrifices her time so I can enjoy mine!!!

A son, that will soon acompany his father in the wonderful out of doors!(I can't wait)

Family and friends!

Last but not least, a country I can be proud to call home! Pray for those and their families who are called to duty! May they return home to what they strive to protect!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!

PS. Thanks Rick for a great website!!

Keep the rods bendn'!!!

And a very happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. That son will grow up fast. Enjoy him while you can. I'll "visit" my son and his kids via telephone this year.

Hey, this weather ain't all that bad, either. I'll look for a couple more open water outings before ice.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
