I thought with you going up this weekend you would have this bulletin board lit up with posts and comments about slaying the eyes! I'm wondering if you're starting to doubt your ability?!

High Life,

I will be one of "those" guys that everyone tells me is nuts to go up this weekend. You can't catch fish staying at home and telling yourself maybe I should have gone fishing. I am going to Zipple and I will be deeper than I was last weekend. My brother in law and his brother are coming up on their annual trip up north. It was actually colder last year when we were up there at Zipple. I caught 3 eyes last Saturday and the rest were decent sized saugers. There was no slaughterfest last Saturday! If there are fish on the Vexilar this weekend I will get them to bite. The only question is where and how deep to set up. Heck after the smoking you took from Lip Ripper (35-0) I suppose catching 2 fish like you did last weekend felt like winning the lottery.

Those 2 along with 3 "pout" and I''m about ready to hang up the Jigging Shad for good! If the bite is anything like last weekend, the battle will be won no more than 6" off the bottom. I've heard good reports from depths anywhere between 17-32+ feet, but all of them said that last weekend, the closer you were to the bottom, the better. It's not your fishing skills that I am most worried about though; it's if the Dodge will make it up there and back in one piece. Watch that ditch!

Wobbler - you need a vex to catch any fish. What makes you think that it will be any different. I heard through the grapevine that you had a messy diaper. Any truth to that?

High Life,

The dodge will make it! The dodge won't get stuck!

Big Chub,

The best investment I have made in a while was the $10 toilet seat that pops on a 5 gallon pail. I broke that baby in and lets say it was a life saver. I knew the beer, and the boones would do that to me! I brought that seat and bucket into my house, nobody knew what I was doing. It made the day very enjoyable!!!

      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.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      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!
