Glenn, my group decided to fish Rainy Lake this entire past weekend.....I didn't make it up to the cabin and fish. Rainy Lake fishing was slow on Sat and a little better on Sunday. Got some eyes, saugers, perch and other "bonus" fish. From a weather perspective, it was a great weekend to be out on the ice.

This weekend is still undecided (as I scribe this message) as to where I will be fishing. I have some people interested in heading up to URL and LOWs for the entire weekened and others that would prefer to fish more "locally". If we are going to be local and stay at the cabin, I'll let you know.

Regardless, on one of the days, I would try hitting Cut Foot for crappies.....search and look in McAvity Bay (deep water) for suspended schools and/or try searching straight out from Narrows public access in 28-30 feet of water. You can also pick up sunnies and perch in this same area. Another option would be heading heading over to Little Cut Foot for crappies and sunnies during the daytime. If perch you are after, Winnie is the clear choice.

By the way, where is your place located?

I have heard many locals comment on how good Peterson lake used to be (key words) for huge sunnies. I've never fished Peterson.....do you ever give your lake a try in the winter, or are the fish far and few on Peterson today?

If we fish local this weekend, I know we will snoop around in Cut Foot during one of the days. In the past, we have picked up some nice crapps in the McAvity bay area. I'll look for your truck as you describe and stop to say howdy.

As I mentioned before, my seasonal shack is on Lake Paglaroni (pag-la-roni) near Bowstring. Funny, most everyone has a hard time finding my place. grin.gif Seriously, I'm on little Jessie. It's nice and peaceful. If I don't run into you, good luck on your fishing adventures this weekend.

The access on the north end of the lake--off of CR35--has been good. I haven't seen in the last few weeks and may have become wet and sloppy during our past warm up period. You still should be able to get out just fine.

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      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.
