Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am writing today on a sad note. Yesterday Jon Fenner expected to go fishing at his fish house but discovered it was burned to the ground by vandels. This was not just any fish house, you see Jon was born with a carotid artery. At age 22 three strokes left him paralyzed and wondering if he'd be able to enjoy his passion of the outdoors again. After a long recovery his family pitched in and bought him a fish house from Five Star Fish Houses that is specifically designed with wheelchair access for Jon and his needs. What I am proposing is to raise some funds for Jon and his family so they can get back to their lives. Lets help touch a fellow outdoorsmans life by bringing the love of the outdoors to him. I will keep you posted on any information that I find out.

Rick is taking donations in the Ice Fishing forum. Look for the post entitled "disaster on the news last night". You can donate from there if you'd like.

Here is a link to the ice fishing forum that will tell you about the very sad ordeal this young man has been through. In this thread Ricks posts have a link to place a donation through Fishing Minnesota via pay pal using credit cards or debit cards. Fishing Minnesota is trying to gather enough to replace the custom built fishouse to fit the anglers needs that was burned to the ground by vandals.

Thanks for setting up the account Rick! I am ignorant when it comes to that stuff. I have a donation bin set up at my bait shop, what should we do about that? Do you have an address or could we go pay pal. Do you know when donations are being cut off...or do we want them just to keep filtering in? Lets do what we can guys!

Channel 5 news tonight showed the surprise and gratitude on the face of Mr Fenner when a brand new fish house was donated and delivered (value 4200.00) to him today. I'm sorry I do not remember the name of the fish house company, but this is truly remarkable that so many sportsman and women have donated to this young man so that he can continue his favorite pasttime. A gentlemen near Chisago donated 1000.00 toward his fund and another 1,000.00 to the reward money. It is truly great to see that humanity and compassion have not died. Bill

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
