Well, on Friday my wife and I "landed" a 7pound-8ouncer and on Monday we brought her home for keeps! Had a baby girl and named her Madelyn. Everyone is doing good except Madelyn has her days and nights mixed up. Man am I tiiirrrreeeedddd! smile.gif Helping my wife out with our new baby and taking care of our 2-year old boy at the same time because daycare gal is on vacation right now. Oofta!

Wife had a c-section because the baby was completely breach and I watched the whole thing. Kind of like gutting a duck or goose out. HAHA!! Just kidding. It was awesome to see. This is the first real break I've had since coming home on Monday and wanted to catch up on the forums.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Later.

Dear Sleepless in Gaylord,

grin.gif Crangrats man! The wife and I are glad to hear that everything worked out for you guys. Congrats to mama as well. C-sections are cool. I watched both my wifes. The second one the doc. asked be if I wanted to see inside shocked.gif. I can actually say that I have seen all of the female parts inside and out. laugh.gif It brings back memories of chasing around my 3 year old son and not sleeping at night with our newborn. I didn't know that a human could make it on 15 hours of sleep a WEEK! Good luck with everything. Won't be too long and you'll be back on the water. You don't do any waterfowl hunting do you? just curious. Later, Paul

Thanks to all for the kind words. I first thought 2 kids would be a bundle, but so far it's going really well...at least until they're both running around raising a ruckus! smile.gif

As a matter of fact, yes, I'm an avid waterfowl hunter. Not sure if I'll make it out for the early goose season, but I haven't talked to my wife about it yet. Our 2-year old boy was born on August 18 (had his b-day the day before our girl was born) and my wife was okay with me going out one day per weekend for a 1/2 day after he was born, but now with 2 kids I'm not sure. Hopefully she'll be okay with the 1/2 day for 1 day on the weekends, but we'll see. If not, that's okay as I know there is things that she could use some help with. I'd like to go, but if it doesn't work out, I'm fine with that too. Nice thing about where we live though, grandma and grandpa are only 2 blocks away, so that really helps! smile.gif

Finally got about 6 hours of sleep last night as I kept our daughter up and as active as much as possible for a good portion of the day yesterday. She didn't like it too much, but it worked out well! smile.gif

I better get going.

Later.

Awesome! Congrats to Mom and yourself.

Get some rest because in about 14 years your sleepness nights may return!

Enjoy them while you can. It is so cool.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
