Calling Mr. Axel (or anyone) - I am going to be up in the area again for a week this year. I would like to get the boat trailer sandblasted/painted while I am there since my trailer just sits in the parking lot all week. I was just wondering if anyone in the area does this kind of work? THX

Be careful on how you promote a business, part-time or not, without being a sponsor. Thank you.

The trailer is for a 17' Basstracker. Not sure how to measure the trailer for size.

MT - I will email you.

TO - Sorry, did I put something wrong on here?

JD, you're fine but thanks for asking. Mountaindew was walking a thin line on some of the information in his original post, so I edited.

I hope you guys are able to connect.

MT - You have mail.

TO - Thanks, I did not notice the edit until after I posted.

I am going to be up there chasing walleyes on Tetonka from May 16-23rd. Hit the lake for the first time last year and after about a day had a good pattern going. Hopefully, I can get on another good bite this year. If anyone is in area during this week and would like to hookup just let me know. When my wife does not go out in the boat with me I usually have room for one.

JD, you'll have to keep me posted on what's happening. I'll be guiding down here May 18 - 20, so perhaps we can bounce some ideas off one another because you'll be a few days up on me. My cell # is 612-756-2184.

Mountaindew, no sweat. Thanks for understanding.

TO - Have your number written down and put in boat. I'll try to give you a ring Thur.night 17th or early Fri. 18th. When is too late/early to call? It would be fun to kick around what is working and what is not. I'm hoping same pattern will work this year as last however we all know it is never that easy.

Couple questions for you? How are the water levels up there so far? Has it ever been a problem getting between Tetonka and Sakatah?

How far a drive to Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville? I would like to visit the store with my wife and daughter one of the days we are up there. I can always use some new tackle (who can't) and sometimes find lures you don't see in other places. Also, would like to meet a few of the people there.

Thanks and really looking forward to the trip.

Sounds good. You can call up to 10:00 pm and as early as 5:00 am. I'll be fresh off a trip to Mille Lacs so we'll definitely be banging ideas off one another.

The water levels are decent right now but there's plenty of room for improvement. Personally, I've never had an issue going between lakes but anything more than an 18' boat could be a little challenging in a few places.

To Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville, you're looking at 15 minutes tops. Tell Joe, Matt or Katy I sent ya'.

Talk to you soon.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
