With all this warm weather I got the itch to put the big boat out on the big pond. Spent yesterday retying all the new leaders. See I need to buy more lures, can never have enough smile.gif Trouble is I have to put it back together, seems the mice have been storing food for a few years. crazy.gif Could not fiqure where the smell was coming from, starting tearing up the floor what a mess. they had food packed all over the place. Keep telling myself the minute I cut the shrink wrap off it will snow big. grin.gif Well just have to keep dreaming for now. Anyone know of a good sealant I can seal the plywood for the floor with? Hate to put it down without some kind of coating. Well maybe I will just hit the ice aGain for now.

I went out of Two Harbors this last Sunday. Sunny, calm and not to cold. Went more to try out the new boat than to fish, but was definitely a good day to do it. I was surprised to see only one other boat, 14 footer working the iron slips. If the wind behaves, I'll probably go again. Not sure I can wait 'till May.....

To much Laker, crappie and gill fishing ahead plus the boat is in hibernation with a cover and tarp over it. Out of sight out of mind, for now anyway.

Spar varnish stays flexible therefore doesn't crack, use a few coats to seal your floor.

Still the best ice fishing of the season left. Honestly though I would love to be out trolling in the old Lund.

      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?
