I was out on Spring Sunday AM from 6:00 AM till noon. Fished the west side of Thorton's point with limited sucess. There was 10" of good ice. There was one moron that came across the point from the south landing and went all the way to Hunter's point at pretty high rate of speed in a Ranger pickup. Everyone was watching expecting to see him take a swim, but he did make it.

There were two vans parked on spring in the spot where I was just fishing in my BOAT just two weeks ago. It is about 12 feet deep there! Zoinks Scoob!

We were out Sunday afternoon. 9" of ice. I could not believe how many fullsize pickups were out there. Or for that matter any pickups. I must have seen 5 different trucks out by the point. There was no bite for us, but I got to use my AV for the first time and saw several Crappies & Perch. We just could not persuade them that they would be better off on the end of ourlines(LOL!)

we had 10.5 inches on my ruler - way to many trucks out there - i love the guys who think if they drive like 60 mph then they will be ok. why to many morans. we got one eye all weekend. the bite is well very very slow.

Wastewater - sorry i missed you - dropped phone in slush bucket sat night and i did not start working again till this morning. only have your number saved there so when i got your messege i had no way to call you back - went out late with brother so we did not hit the ice till about 1 anyway. hope you did better than we did.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
