Buddy may or may not be king... or chopped liver, but I'm pretty sure Foster is the court jester! grin.gif

"the court jestor" dropped his plow and headed into a new area on his never ending search for the seal motherload and ran right into the pike you were looking for last weekend. We plowed right over them. frown.gif He said that in his 35+ years on URL he has never seen a winter time run like this past week.

Out deeper? I got to thinking and talking with Jim P and we figured they moved out to deeper water starting the eating binge early this year. Normaly this doesnt happen until March when you are trying to stay away from the pike. If I remember didn't they move out early the winter we had warmer average temps and thinner ice four or five years ago?

Of course it is Red lake, the only lake I know that the pike move out deep pre-spawn to feed heavy then make a long run under the thawing ice for the spawning grounds.

About 3/8's of a mile out from the "hardline". Remember that GPS point you mentioned as we plowed in? If Foster keeps working west he will run right over it.

The strange thing is that right now the crappies movement/bite is more like March then Febuary. Definate west to east movement and right now we are sitting at the same place as March 15th last year. There also appears to small schools and/or scattered crappies all the way west to the "Line". Good fishing or limits are being reported all along a 3 mile stretch of road from 6 miles on out.

spider is a great guy to ask but it seems the place to be is on the north parts of the lake ( hillmans, hudecs) stop at hillmans and ask they will give you a updated report. They all know their stuff when it comes to that lake so basically just stop at any of the fine establishments and just ask at the bait shops and they will point you in the right direction!! wink.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?
