I'm stayin' with Russ on the 5th and 6th and I'd like to fish next to the pressure ridge.

Could you please ask Patsy if she'd move one to within walking distance of his shacks?

I'd be willing to pay her an "exterior decorator's" fee crazy.gif

With the gas some of us will have, we'll be able to create our own pressure ridge complete with rough ice around it. If you can get past the smell the fishing should be great.

We'll be ready gspman. I've been looking to the west and there is a HUGE area not being fished. confused.gif I think we'll put over "there" and see what happens. grin.gif

I saw one North Dakotan "over there" once.

BUT

He now wishes that he'd never "seen what happens".

Cool. Put us wherever you want (as long as it isn't over the line blush.gif ) and we'll fish hard. If the weather is decent during the day some of us could do some scouting for you too. There's a bunch of us - my group, and another group coming up with us that reserved a different house - so there should be a few of us willing to do something different during the day.

I know you guys fish hard. We need you now. blush.gif Unless we find something better in the the next few days be ready to pack your lunch and head for the front lines. grin.gif Foster is holding the north flank, Tigger is chasing rumors, Buddy has opened up a new front to the SW a mile and 1/2 wide and I'm scouting. You're gonna be the point of the spear. cool.gif

Always hanging around Patsy. You dirty old man. grin.gif She'll be happy to see you. smile.gif

Good thing gspman isn't here tonight, he'ld cry. frown.gif This morning the house I was going to put him in had one other house 150 yards north, a couple houses 1/4 mile to the NE and nobody else within miles in the other directions. Tonight,,,, the mean people are packing in around that house so tight they are blocking the driveway, driving 5 feet from the house and parking their hard houses like it is parallel parking. It looks like 35W at rush hour. All in a 100 yard area, beyond that, nobody else for miles. There will not be another crappie caught there for 2 weeks. What don't they understand about "spread out". confused.gif

      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.
