I was out there a couple times tis summer and last winter and it was very slow. I havent had good fishing out there for about 4 years. Im thinking they might go off this winter, the walleyes will anyway!!!

In the winter do you need a state park sticker to get on Monson?/ I'd like to try it but never fished it before

you only need a sticker if you park at the pulic access, lots of guys park along the south or east shores, I talked to the park ranger a couple years ago and he said its the best thing to do, although its kind of a grey area, whatever that means

too windy for my portable but watched another guy go out sat. afternoon, he chiseled about six times to get to water so it can't be much yet, I'm guessing 2", still waiting for the wind to die.

Herringbone, if that guy chiseled 6 times to get water. He either, has a very dull chisel, or he needs to hit the gym.

For only 2" of ice? I zap that in one shot.

Last yr was my 1st up here as I moved.. I fished the Pond and got sunnies, crappies,, a couple of bass and a couple of NICE northerns which were let go.. theres still a few eyes in there as i saw them on camera but nonewilling to bite.. wonder what they feed on in there?? Also got a couple of Jumbo perch too but those were few and far between.. If all goes well ( if i get permission from the boss) I will be out there friday afternoon and possibly sunday too if i find fish smile.gif

Where do you park when you fish Golden pond? On 9 or on the south side?

usually on 9 in a field approach, i have never parked on the south side and that seems to be the hotter spot late ice anyway

Was out to Monson last night. Amazingly, no one else was out there!! But I can see why, caught only two crappies and they were both dinks and went back.

Anything happening on Games or Golden pond? Seeing a few houses out on the north access of Games, and also a few portables on Golden Pond... Lots of houses on Norway!!

was oon the pond last sunday with minimal results.. 6 keepers in 4 hrs fishing time.. i saw a few caught and apparently they are down there according to a guys camers, just not hungry... think this has anything to do with the pond being alot lower than last yr??

The bay. It was also my second time out there.

Time to try somewhere else. Hoping to make it out again tonight, but only if this rain turns over to snow...

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
