I wanted to rub this into all those Sox fans on the Cass Lake board, but I decided to do this with class and tact,(unlike some Sox fans over their)and post this in it's proper thread.
Get the brooms out fellow Cub fans !! Sweep em back to 35th and Shields where they belong.

Hey Walleyediver,
Do you still have that broom the Cubbies used on my beloved or did you sell it to the Brew Crew for a new fishing rod??? Payback is a mother, not that the Sox are doing any better but we don't have a 100 million dollar payroll and the two best pitchers in baseball since Cy Young and Sandy Koufax. Cardinals are clicking, sure is going to be a long season on the north side. Notice I did not talk about fishing on this thread, wouldn't want to confuse the two like all those other low class Sox fans I heard about.
It might be...It could be...It is...A sweep by the Brew Crew. Two runs in three games???
Come on Slammy Steriod, start juicing again before it's too late!!!

Way to Go Mudcutter,
That is one of my favorite sayings over the years. Last year there was this little old lady outside of Sox Park and she had a sign with this saying on it and I clipped it out and it is on my office door along with my plaque that reads, "My two favorite baseball teams are the White Sox...And whoever is playing the Cubs!" GO SOX, Curt

Hey Commanche,
It's been mighty quite up north these days, huh? Not too much chirping going on just some good old fashion sweeping, tomorrow completes the double dip. Sox are only half game out and two games in hand, things are looking up. Maggs is back and Freddie will settle into a groove. I hate to break the code but can we talk a little fishing over here. I am going up to Cass on July 24th and might be interested in doing lunch over in Mokena or Orland Park to trade Hot Spots maps and talk some Cass Lake fishin. I go primarily after walleye, then perch and Northerns are accidental. This year I am going to try a half day here and there and try my luck at muskie though I am in no way a muskie man. I went out for a half day with Dances With Fish ( Bob Gray ) who is a regular on this web site and he got the bug planted in me when he landed about a 43 incher, it was a pig. When do you go to Cass, where do you stay and what do you fish for. How many years have you been going? We have been going for 17 years and we stay at Wishbone. Looking forward to hearing back from you but until then, STRETCH......YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD....YES! Go Sox (and whoever is playing the Cubs) Curt

Windy,
I'll be going to Leech on the 24 with the family. We are planning a day trip to Cass so I can get ready for the PMTT. I would be happy to hook up in the next week or so. Tuesday and Friday of this week are out. What are the rest of the days looking like for you?
We've been going since 1982, taking one year off. Used to stay at Tom's, and started goin to Leech last year with the family. Did the camping thing for a couple years with the boys.
Fished for anything growing up, but for 7 years now, mostly muskie. In our group (actually, between 4 guys), we've caught 5 50"+, with another 4 over 48" over the past few years and countless smaller ones.

Hey Mudcutter, just to bring you up to date, the Cubs did play for the NL Championship last year. So your little anaology is frankly quite useless, as are most folks from Iowa.
Larry
PS How is that pro baseball team doing from that part of the country ??

Mudcutter RULES!
Hey WalleyeDiver,
All of your idles went thru Iowa to get to your favorite team. DID YOU KNOW YOUR TRIPLE A FARM TEAM IS IN DES MOINES?
That's Iowa, my friend.
So you make a valid point about the lack of pro ball in Iowa.......there is NONE! Good luck to your team....they're old and the young ones are always hurt.

      When I was drilling holes for people and I could hear screams and squeals over the noise of my auger drilling holes it makes the trip worth it for me.  We have dubbed this trip Dad's and Lad's, its a get away for dad's and their sons to enjoy the outdoors, spend a night away from home and usually catch a lot of fish.  A set of twins were competing against each other last year and one of the kids was over 9 fish landed.  Not many kids can say they've caught trout through the ice and in this setting it's a lot of fun because of the aggressiveness of the trout.  I have a feeling we'll be doing a 3rd Annual trip in 2020.

      Looks like a awesome trip the smiles on the kids faces say it all!

      Just remember when you point fingers there are at least 3 pointing back at you!!!  This is never an easy subject to debate because of the emotions that are involved.  Every time someone blames the RLB for commercial fishing or netting, I get why they are opposed to it, but at the same time I just laugh a little.  Yes commercial netting can be a bad thing, but if it is regulated closely and they are on top of things, why do we care how they get their allocated pounds of fish?  I can promise you that what ever poundage is reportedly taken out of the state controlled waters is higher due to thieves that can't fish by the rules.  I don't agree with certain pollical issues that play into the area up there, but that debate is way beyond my education level!!  I do know that we sure do complain a lot about the RLB, and how they get their walleye poundage, on a huge lake that we can't even enter!!  I think the RLB has a good handle on what is happening on their portion of the lake, and if there is any illegal activity going on their side, they will handle it accordingly.  I don't believe they are looking the other way towards illegal netting the way it may have been in the past.  What I do know of Red Lake is that it is a beautiful lake that is certainly abused on the state controlled portion with illegal harvesting and horrible actions regarding disposing of garbage in the winter.  If we could clean up our act, and were perfect, then I think we could look at other and try to figure out what is going wrong, but first we need to correct our issues!!  Good Luck

      Thanks for the report Kettle. How much snow you end up with from this round? Heading up next week for my first trip this winter. Thanks!!

      Did you NOT read the part of the story where the tribal fisheries was created by the BIA (whites)? Other bands in N MN also had fisheries created but did not stick with it as Red Lake did.   What I don't understand is the misinformation spread and how we always are jealous when someone (the band) has something we don't?   To me, if you want netting banned then you should be prepared to give up your electronics trolling motors and just row on lakes where you want to fish.   We're in this together. Its working.

      What a weekend...I almost need a day off to recover from the wild weekend I had so here's a quick update. Friday we packed up and took off for Red Lake Casino for the night, $70 hotel fee for 2 queens and a fireplace nothing fancy but beat getting up at 2 am to drive north.   Saturday morning got up early and fished the Red Lake Reservation and got back to the lake I've fished before and done great.  I hadn't drilled a hole yet after getting people out on the ice and helping guide vehicles and I was hearing "I GOT ONE" "FISH ON" so you knew it was going to be a good day when sun hasn't come up yet and we are pulling fish out of the ice instantly.  It took us about 2 hours to limit out on trout and a few of us saved 1 fish and took off for a second lake after getting pictures with the kids and our catch.  Second lake was a bust but you never know till you try!  Came home and the was able to get home before dark which was nice after the long day we had on the ice. Sunday we took off with the ranger on a local lake in Becker County.  Ice was flooding bad near shore but was solid out 200 yards from shore.  It was our first trip out with the Ranger so it was a dry run to see how it was going to work with everything attached and hooked up for ice fishing.  Everything worked but fish didn't cooperate.  Fished a few spots using the Hellix mounted to the dash as a guide but just couldn't put fish on the ice.  Ton of small pike were active again and I did land one bluegill that measured 9.0 inches.  We did leave a little early due to the weather coming in and we had to unload prior to heading back to Moorhead.   I'm hearing mixed reports of ice reports for example on Big Pine where our cabin is I'm hearing 6-7 inches then a guy posted Friday night he was on 4 inches.  So these lakes are very hit and miss so please with the snow take time and verify a safe route especially before bringing kids out onto the ice.   This upcoming weekend I'm going to be limited availability because of the Ice Show at the Scheels Arena in Fargo.  Got a lot of friends coming in to man booths and give presentations so it'll be fun to catch up with them and the girlfriend will be in the Women Anglers of Minnesota booth all day Friday and half the day on Saturday.  I'm hoping to sneak out Saturday afternoon and fish after dark and hopefully get into some crappies or blue gills.  Hopefully I'll have better pictures next weekend.   Attached should be our Ranger with fish houses behind, group photo of us trout fishing, a few people holding up some trout (Gloria got a big one, not in our group but they forgot their phones on shore), and lastly my pretty solo bluegill I got Sunday.

      Safety matters.   Not sure what you know about backwaters ice fishing @Bucketcastle but a newbie is best served going where others have already paved a trail. Especially in the backwaters where currents can be tricky.   So if you're new to those backwaters definitely look for parked vehicles and follow their trails. You will catch plenty of keepers that way as well.   Have fun.

      Taking spud bar out Friday, if safe I'll be on Coon Sat.
    • CJH
      Be safe, still saw some open water this week.  It will build some ice in the next few days, but with the snow, its better to be safe than sorry.   NO fish is worth it.
    • Bucketcastle
      I'll be out with the spud bar next weekend taking it easy.  @papadarv I hope you have enough ice to test it out.  Looks like a fun set up.
