Great Video! Is it the lighting or is that fish really dark in color. Either way it's a great catch.

I found a few spots last week where the shakers were flying out of the water like that...great to watch! That heat wave really got um going.

Scudly, you need to rearrange your photos vertically. Nice looking fish!

I went ice fishing 26 times without a trout this winter. Below is a pic of my first open water trout of the 2009 season.

Well i got'em tom...

was a little rough starting out.. talk about frustration.. was close to just snapping the pole over my leg... lost like 4 flies before i even caught a fish... but after that.. nothing but smooth sailing with a couple more flies lost along the way.. almost came natural after i got the swing of things.. casting under trees/structure with little to no problem

1st trout caught on a fly rod for me..

and then a couple other pics..

troutfly3.jpg

all in all.. caught around 15 or 20 trout

PS: the shakespeare combo i bought felt great.. i've tried fly fishing with a friend's cabela's rod years ago.. and from what i can remember it handled the same.. if not better for me than the cabela's backup my buddy had

itchmesir, you inspired me to get out the fly rod. Second trout ever fly fishing. I lost a bigger one. I wish I could have seen it...

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
    • Interesting. Have never seen one around our place in the winter,  although it is surprising sometimes how many birds seem to stay very late into the winter.
