Dont forget that the old tags are done at the end of the month guys. I believe the new ones are on sale now. New ones dont have a sticky back so figure something out to keep them on your houses. I wish they would have stayed with the sticky backs. What does everyone else think?

Yeah the sticky back would make it a lot easier to attach to my old one! They must have been spending to much for the "sticky" wink.gif

On my fish trap i use a hunting lic number holder like the Wi guys have to wear that number or did ya pin it to your back but have the pinned through the netting on a air vent. I did that when i was in ely and asked the COs if they thought it was good and they said yeah.

My house has a piece of plastic sewn on, for the name. The name is on a piece of cardboard, I glue the sticker onto that, and slide it in.

I actually do not mind the new tags. At first I thought they were crazy, but I poked out the small punch hole out in the center of the tag and attached to a key ring attached to my portable zipper. I found they are very durable tags and don't tear. Mine has lasted all season. wink.gif

Norhtlander-

My 2005 shelter tag didn't have the sticky back. That is why this season I poked the hole and connected to the door zipper with a key ring. I didn't buy my license until December and maybe that is why I already have the 'new' style.

Got my new one today. CHEAP paper type material with a few holes in it to put something threw to attach to the door zipper. I guess its cheaper and they get more on 1 roll for the stores. Thats what Gander Mt. told me anyway. Wont last long setting up and taking down. Ill just glue it to a piece of cardboard or plastic and slide it in my license holder on the Otter. That way I can put it on my other portable when needed. Oh well no big deal but the old sticky backing was so much nicer and more durable.

Got a couple of them last week too. Not too bad for the portable, but the hard side might be another story. Also the fishing licenses run out in MN this week too. My WI is still good for another month.

Side Note:

I ordered my lifetime sportsman's hunting/fishing license the other day. Didnt realize it takes apprx 3 weeks to process. Keep that in mind if you ever plan on geting one. So I'll be without a license now in MN for a couple of more weeks. Guess I'll stay in WI to fish! grin.gif

Alright, why can't MN be like Wi and not require a portable to be lic?? I take the grand kid out maybe 1-2 times a year and he has his own CHEAP pull-over ice house yet I still have to buy the yearly Lic. Whats up with that???>>Later the load

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
