Oh thanks Paul, tease me for so many days to come, its just plain mean, but i will be in the boat hopefully mid April chasing some crappies around and hopefully one early trip to Devils Lake if all goes well. I am just hoping opener this year is as good as last year. grin.gifgrin.gif

Ya As I dragged my fish house past my boat last weekend I was trying to think what would be more fun right now. then I realized..... WHO CARES I am fishing. I was just sending an email to work to make sure I had the weekend off for opener. I have been kinda screwed last few openers. I worked in Fargo Last year on Saturday but was out at midnight on friday till 6am. slept till 10am worked from noon to 2am and was back on the water at 5:00am. Slept monday after work. It was gruelling. but a tradition. I have not missed opening day since I was a baby. This spring when ICE out we will be dragging the boat to Ransonm county and fishing some small ND game and Fish stocked lakes. One in particular we have iced fished for the first time this year and did great. Will be interesting to see what spring brings us.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
