This weekend

Thinking about going up on Sat afternoon. Just wondering if you can drive out or if we need to bring the wheeler? Haven't decided where exactly we'll be fishing but any info on ice conditions would be great. Gonna try to target eyes but heard they haven't been biting. True or false?

I was up last weekend. We took the wheelers out to the flats on saturday. There was all kinds of full size trucks, and drop down wheel trailors out there. I would say you can drive anywhere pretty easily depending on how much snow they recieve this week. Just be carefull around the ice heaves.

I was out manely for jumbos this weekend but tried for walleyes. Got 1jumbo and no eyes I wasnt happy mad.gif. But I hope you have better luck than me and keep it slow on the roads.

I was out on Saturday and made my way around the lake with my car Olds 88 just fine. I didn't measure but there had to be well over 20 inches of ice I would guess about 26. The auger was almost on the ice!!!

That sounds like enough to drive the Colorado to me. I guesss we're thinking about going out to shermans or maybe nine mile. Still haven't made up my mind. Fished shermans once last year and got skunked but we didn't have the GPS so we really couldn't tell where we were. My buddy said it was up to me to put us on fish but this is only the second time out on the lake for both of us. Guess I got my work cut out for me. confused.gifOh well I'll give it a shot. If I fail maybe I wont have to do it again . grin.gif

      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?
