Well...If I were you, I'd come down with more than just a flu bug and take both days off grin.gif Maybe get pneumonia or strep throat???

Ironman, If I could pick a day to come down with scaup-itis I would pick Thursday, give the stiff NW winds another day to move some birds. Either day looks great though, rain, sleet, and wind.....perfect. I will be out thursday and friday, save some for me. Good luck

if you want to take a couple of days off, i would try tomm. you can get a lot of birds right before the front passes through. remember if its so bad out there you dont want to be out there the ducks dont either. there is a book called duck hunting in the 20 or 21 cententry (sp?) by 2 guys from wisc. you can get it from the local lib. good detail on when to hunt as fronts come through. big changes in the pressure are good signs. try to go just berfore the pressure drops (tomm) and after it settles thrus. hope this helps and good luck.

Well, the forcasts hour by hour, for now anyways is saying rain should be changing to snow right about shooting hours. So I think I'll be going tomorrow. I anticipate..or rather hope for a good shoot. Btw, I have an open seat if anyone is interested. Nice blind, around 50 dekes, boat and motor. Shoot an email..I'll check it tonight. dlluginbill @ aol . com

I've already switched with a fellow worker,I don't have to be until 12:00 thursday and work till 7:00 not a bad option to have when mother nature throws us a curve ball like this weather front.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
