Hiya -

Mother-in-law got the itch and reserved us some accomodations at the usual place for the 2nd week of July and let 'em know we'd be needing a guide...not just any guide...but Sir Oveson. He really should be knighted, y'know. grin.gif

Maybe this year you can shake some time loose for that drink by the campfire!

Man, I'm looking forward to it!

A1, good to hear from you, can't believe you are going to get away from those catfish long enough to get up here. I will make sure I can get away for a little while, wife and I hope to stay down there occassionally. Lots of changes there since your last trip up. I hope Sir Oveson can accomodate you, he says he is not going to guide much this year, so feel privledged. He will be a youthful 92 this year. guts

Hmmm maybe Mother-in-law can coax him out with some homemade lefsa!?! If I'm willing to rice up the taters, she's willing to make some!

I'm looking forward to it! "Up North" is like stepping out of the skin I wear every working day and letting the sun, wind and water soak the soul!

Say, I was wondering if deep trolling with dipsies & such would be a worthwhile tactic for big pike? What's yer take on deep trolling action in the summer up there?

Ron, the water temps and baitfish locations will be the indicators for big pike. I've known big sucker minnows to do the job when nothing else works. Using dipsies and or deep divers could work well, as might using leadline and a diver combo.

I've caught many a nice fish, using a 1oz or heavier slip sinker and a #18 floating rap rather than live bait.

I should mention that some of the nicer pike that are consistently caught throughout the summer, are simply caught using a large bobber and big suckers, lots of these are taken near the area of Gold Portage and in Hacksaw Pass, both locations near the resort.

I'll probably have more ideas and locations as the time approaches, and the facts come in. guts

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
