i see that your from WBL, the reason i ask is that i grew up, in WBL, just a few blocks from the VFW. on second and webber street right behind the white bear care center.

ive had some good fishing there at the VFW in the early spring and late fall long before they built that fishing pier.

ill probably be out there this saturday, i know its xmass day, but if you happen to be by the lake ill be in a black portable that says cabelas above the door,

stop in and say hello, good luck !

Fins & feathers or DRH, been skunked out on the bear a couple times looking for crappies and sunnies. Do you guys do better during the day or night for crappies and sunnies out there? I tried mainly around sundown and night fishing. Any advice would be appreciated. Email is rosspatrick59@hotmail.com. Thanks!

rosspj,

I mainly fish bald eagle this time of year for walleyes really don't start panfishing till the walleyes shut down. I do know out from the VFW can be good Also would check some of the sunken islands. Metrojoe, I am thinking of hitting bald eagle instead actually for walleyes. Will be out early afternoon In my fish trap voyager fishing one of the bars or islands.

No problem, maybe some other time. Just itching to get out and not to sure where to go. Still healing up from surgery last week so I don’t know if I’d be up to pulling the portable for any long distances. I think I may head over to a small metro lake and see if I can get on some crappies.

Good Luck

Saw some guys out from the VFW today, closer to the south side by all the docks. I don't know how they where doing. Where is there to park there before you can park on the ice? I don't think that little shopping center wants you parking there so what's a guy to do?

You can park at lions park, but you will have a little bit of a walk. There are also spots on the street. Yesterday I parked next to the vfw on the north side of the lot (east side of street). There are only about 4 spots, but it wasn't marked with "vfw only" signs (the south side of the lot was). Althought you may want to check with the vfw if you park there.

I see a lot of people fishing the 14' hole just in front of Kowalski's. Seems about 15 portables in a hole that might measure 100 yards around. Must be nailing them!!! Looks like a case of follow the leader. Couldn't believe my eyes but there was a full-size pick-up out there this morning. Ice cannot be over 9"??? Any reports?

Chisago last night. Got into a bunch of small crappies and quite a few bass. Odd catching bass in the winter like that, fun though. All in all a nice trip. There were vehicles out on the lake but i wouldn't suggest it, about 10-12" of ice. Good luck.

I hit Chisago yesterday too, morning though. Plenty of sunny and crappie action. Nothing big was hitting that morning for me. We had one flag on a shiner, but it was gone before I got hold of the line. mad.gif

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
