Staff notices quality posting patterns with good information being shared often in a friendly manner. We then compare to a criteria we have set-up and see if the person qualifies. If the person qualifies we see if there is a need in a forum they can help in. Then we ask if there is interest. If so we send expectations and if they agree to them then they are promoted to Specialist.

There is no question that I should be promoted to a specialist level.

I am sure that I catch more 10-inch 'eyes than anyone in the area. cool.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

I want to have an "A" by my name. If not, maybe 10-inch specialist? smirk.gif

F-dog and I got out on Saturday and nailed a few crappies. A couple of 12s and F-dog got a nice 13"er. I don't know if I'll be able to get out again before the ice gets too crummy. This rain doesn't help...

Dead, fished that crappie lake close to home til 1am last night. Me and Ryan got 18 9-11 inchers before we left. Marked lots of fish that didn't bite, when they turn on its going to be a slaughter. We'll have to get out again before the ice is gone, I think it's going to go fast.

I hear ya about the ice going out quick. I think that rain predicted for tonight will do some serious damage. I can't get out until Saturday might again, and I'm afraid the ice will be too bad by then, with all the rain and high temps they have forecasted frown.gif.

Let's talk on Friday for another Saturday night adventure if the ice is still good.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
