i was out today cut alot of holes till we found them in 12 fow got them on a orange jig and i dont know if i can say the name of the plastic trairer or not so for now i wont but you had to pound the jig off the bottom and lift it and hold for a few sec and drop it back down and when you would lift it you would have weight on it then set the hook, we the wife got there drop there i put the under water eye down so she could watch and did she have a blast. i dont know if it was the time of day or just luck that i found them today but from about 9 to 2 we got them,

Sounds like a fun day. Were the fish still biting at 2? I'm heading there tomorrow afternoon and I was wondering if the afternoon bite is good. Can you drive most everywhere out there now? What is the ice thickness?

I fished St. James yesterday. The sunnies were a tough bite all day according to the fishermen on the lake. We tried several spots and depths and finally stopped in 9' in some weeds. the camera showed several sunnies down there but really had to coax them to bite. ended up with about 15 sunnies and kept 6. Not the bite that was out there last winter.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
