Hey Uncle Bill, I would have sent you a private message but I can't figure out how!

Have you been seeing any grouse in your neck of the woods lately? I have a place on West Rush and usually tromp around the public stuff along the croix looking for ruffies. I'll be up every weekend in October doing the cast and blast thing.

FYI there was a Fishers of Men bass tourney on Rush last weekend and the winners brought in 5 bass for 24+ lbs! There big one was 6.89...WOW!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Ferney,

I have not seen many grouse around my area.

I'm somewhat surrounded by hay fields and pasture.

Could be the grouse are back in, or near the woods.

I have seen alot more pheasant this year, compared to past years. Alot of deer too.

6.89# bass !!.... Sheesh!

I don't fish for Bass, (except on the river) but even a non Bass fisherman has to be impressed with that.

Good luck,

Unc.

Thanks for the info!

I went out Sunday morning for a couple hours. I flushed 1 within 50 yards of the truck and missed it. I thought it was going to be awesome and never saw or heard another one. I did flush one woodcock but I don't shoot those anymore since the breast is so small. It was a great day to be out! I'll be back up this coming weekend trying for a doe (early doe season) with my kids in my turkey blind...any suggestions on a spot? I tried a spot last year and had 4 others for company nearby so I was a little concerned about our safety!

Thanks,

Ferny.

Oops, I forgot to add that I agree with you about the pheasants. I saw quite a few this weekend.

Ferny,

If you're asking me about State owned property, I don't know of any. Sorry.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
