CT,

I am with you there. Ain't no sense in really endagering one's health by venturing into this cold. Me and 13 buddies are headed to LCO (Hayward) thursday am so I think I will spend this weekend watching a little soft water angling on the ol' tube sorting, packing & staring at the lake map. Got a buddy that headed out to the pits this morning (atleast that was what he was gonna do as of lastnight). Will let you know how he did as soon as I talk to him........physh1

Well....is it cold enough for fishing now. It seems to me about a month and a half ago everyone was hooting because there wasn't any ice. Now you can't hardly breath out there without getting frostbite on your innards. I drove by Fosters this morning....hit the garbage in the lot for a couple minutes and found a nice pliers and a great little led headlamp, and 76 cents. There were two vehicles parked that must have been belonged to people fishing and as I was leaving a guy came in the lot with a dog for a walk. I had all I wanted in 10 minutes of lot walking. We're supposed to be back up in the tropical twenties sometime next week....that's when I'll think about fishing. Until then, I'll read about it or get into the summer tackle boxes and do some cleaning out. I have some new stuff to find a home for and I can always get into my bulk bags and fill where needed. One can never be too attentive to the tackle ya know. This is, after all, MInnesota and tomorrow we might be fishing open water. HA!

Hey Tom,

I was the buddy icephys is referring to. I got out to the pit about 8:30 and was set up and ready to go by 8:45. First fish on at 8:50. Not bad. Boy was it chilly out there, and glad I have an ice shack. Fished for about 2 1/2 hours. 41 bluegills and 1 nice crappie. Probably had about 9 or 10 gills I could have kept. Released them all back. I was fishing just on the NE side of the point kind of where the channel comes out from what I could tell. I was fishing about 9 1/2 feet of water. Had two poles going pretty much steady. It was a blast. Is there a spot out there where there might be a few more crappies and some bigger gills? Would appreciate any info you could provide. Pretty nice to find the needle nose pliers and headlamp. Did the headlamp work and if so why would some dipstick throw that in the gargabe? Oh well people do strange things. Hey I even managed to pick up a couple pieces of garbage out at the CC pits on my way back. Trying to do my part for the environment. Can't wait to head up north with Icephysrman and the rest of the guys to rip some lips on them pike!! WHOO HOO.

Hey nutso! physh here....u forgot to tell CT about how you almost burnt down your new shack...ha ha ha

But I am with you on the trash thing...Everytime I go to Foster's, there is crap all over, especially during the summer. Heard a rumor (a while back) that the city was looking to sell the land around Foster's to developers....If people keep throwing their trash out like that, I wouldn't be surprised if they did....

CT, great job on the clean up effort a while back. Missed that one but (we) will continue to do our part everytime we are out there....Will let everyone know how we did up north when we get back........Jim

Why do I sense that there is more to this fishing adventure than what has been mentioned? Are we into arson ?

Hey CT,

S'pose I better clear this one up. What icephysrman is alluding to is me almost burning down my own shack with the mishap of a defunct propane heater. Tossed that one out of the shack so it would not burn a hole in it. Now it's time to get a new one. Oh well that's the way it goes sometimes.

Gotta love that combo....propane and defunct. lol Sort of like having three too many martinis and only having to drive a mile to get home. And who says fishing isn't a dangerous sport? lol
