Cool guys! Got ya down.

If you are planning on fishing Friday night, Sat. morning, just swing into Hillman's by noon on Saturday to make sure you meet up with the crew.

I will be up there late, late Thurs night and fishing Friday as well. I'll more than likely be swinging into Hillman's by 9pm for some socializing on Friday night. smile.gif

Put me on the list also. I be up friday night with my two girls. One's my fishing buddy her sister hasn't been that interested over the past several years but, we were up there the weekend when it felt like Sibera. Caught some eye's and a 41 inch northern. No crappies it was enough to get her to say I want to go back. That's the weekend we picked. Get her one of those slabs and I get the feeling she'll be pushing her sister out of the way to get the front seat in the truck on future fishing trips. smile.gif I'd kinda like to have an idea how far to get the house out on friday night so I'm in the general area. If I asked when I pay for the road pass will they be able by then to get me somewhat close to the big event? Can't Wait.

Chris that's fine, I caught ALOT of fish. No Crappies, but catching 40+ walleye on Saturday was plenty fun. How did you guys do this past weekend? I haven't seen your report anywhere????

T,

Will be checking in Friday afternoon and then going out and doing some fishing. After that probably swing by Tall Tales for a few and then back to the cabin for a late supper and get ready for Saturday. I figured we would just trailer to Hillman's and out to the central meeting place and then start to run and gun.

I'll be up there and will try to stop in. Not sure how many others though. Will be with a group of 8 staying at West Winds plus may have some buddies staying in my shack. Would be fun to meet some fellow FM'ers.

I will be there with at least two other guys. We are all first timers, so be gentle. Hoping to get there late Thursday night if one of the other guys can get Friday off. I might have to buy him a thermometer...

Wow! We're getting a good crew together now! No crappie will be safe with that many anglers working as a team! smile.gif

TTfromBlaine- My shack is down at Rogers Campground still and thats where it will be for that weekend. Its not so easy to move a skid house across the lake. smile.gif I'll be camping down there and fishing out of Hillman's for the weekend.

As to how far out we'll be fishing... we'll definitely be passed the pressure ridge (3 miles), after that, there are consistent groups of houses all the way out to 7 miles or so. I'm thinking that 5 1/2- 6 1/2 mile range but I'm not sure yet.

      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
    • delcecchi
      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.
    • delcecchi
      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
    • Big Red Lodge
      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
    • Bigfatbert
      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 ?
    • Wakemup
      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
