You can fish anyplace you want. Its a big enough lake that you can find some place to get away to.

We will be there.

Agreed, it is a big lake with plenty of spots. How has the panfish bite been lately? Where are most people going out of (contest headquarters)?

I was thinking about fishing the lake tomorrow, but don't really want to be part of the contest. I guess after a long week I am just looking for some solitude. Does this contest allow people to fish all over the lake or is it in a specified area. If so, where is this area at. I am not the antisocial type, just don't want to fish a contest like Island Lakes where you are in a big circle and your neighbor is looking at your lure through his hole.

Watched a guy roll onto the ice there at the bridge a couple of weekends ago after making an attempt to water skip. Are they driving everywhere else on the lake other than that spot? Any red flags that I need to be aware of?

I just talked to Tim at Hi Banks and he said the contest is from 11:00 to 3:00. $5.00 entry and you can fish anywhere on the lake. Weigh-in is at Hi Banks and the prize drawings will be at Eagles Nest. He said they have 24" of ice and you can drive anywhere on the lake (except under the bridge of course!! grin.gif)

Good Luck,

Mud

Steve and Dave,

A couple of weeks ago I went back to the landing with Lota to get our head lamps so we could stay out tell dark. We met a person with the DNR not the one I have met many times on the lake this year. So I asked him if he had heard about the guy from the DNR that went through the ice under the bridge. The guy next to him that I also new said he had not heard about that story. So I sat there and told the story the way I had heard it and finally the guy doing the DNR survey fesses up and said that he was the guy that took the splash under the bridge. Long story short we all got a good chuckle out of it and we were off to fish the rest of the night.

Not that this story has much to do with the topic I just thougt I would share. If your reading this and haven't heard the story it was kind of cute I'll share it with you sometime.

Good luck fishing tomorrow guys. I'll be thinking about you from work.

Take care,

Tom

Dave,

Last I checked there were no vacation spots left open for tomorrow. If we do not make our plans months in advance things just seem to fill up. I'm sure you guys will do just fine.

Take care,

Tom

      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.
    • delcecchi
      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?
