Recommended Posts

Jim I noticed on your bio that you are a stock car fan also.Tonight at the Alexandria fall classic I had the pleasure to sit with Lou Fegars ,his lovely wife and their son.They live on Lake Minnetonka and expressed the excellant fishing they have enjoyed for years.Got to pick Lous very brite racing mind and found out that he started racing in 1949 at where Sargent Field now stands in Chicago.Thier grandson was racing tonight and they were telling me which cars and drivers at the races were built by them or used to race for them.This was a great experience for me.told them how much fun I have had fishing the lilly pads in front of thier home after they described where they lived.Saw your relly dale too.Second time ran into him at Alex this season.Maybe a fishing venture with what I call a racing legend would be fun Eh!Small world after we discussed people in common from the area they live in.Kind of makes the crossover between fishing and racing more comfortable for me.

Prime, Most of my race watching now comes in my den. More fun being there, but then we don't have many drag boat( freaky fast fishermen) races around here. I took my wife to her first stock car race in Redwood Falls. She grew up there and never went to any of the races. I brother-in-law lives 6 blocks from the track in Alex. I had guide trips on the friday and saturday, in the cities. A gentleman from Texas, wanted to learn more about walleye fishing. Has only 1 lake 50 miles from his home that has walleyes in it. Showed he a few things to try, He really enjoyed the fishing here in Minnesota. He caught his first ever walleye and smallmouth. Says "I'm coming here again, this fishing is fun". On the water at 7:00am, left around 4:30pm. smile.gif fishing all day life is good.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
