You didn't hear if from me but I heard those swimming dead logs are already in with all the rain and the cool summer, just don't tell anyone that I told you that.... smile

Should be out casting from shore tonight, no reason why they shouldn't be coming in.

Water temp yesterday was 76, I'm sure it's got to be lower today and tomorrow with it going to the mid 40's tonight.

Frankie - Did he ever have them?

Theres always a few stupid salmon in the river in august. Problem is its a gamble with bad odds, plus they run the river when its too warm and die. Lucky I know enough people up there to time things well. A few years ago a big pod of fish came in early and there were dead fish everywhere. The guys in the lake are reporting a good summer, lots of fish and good sized. Most of the activity is still deep so were on scheduel...

Tim and I fished the big O for some ellusive marble eyes and found a few around grin water temp is still 73*.If we keep haveing cold nights it will get better we didn't set the world on fire but we caught a few fish. The pics were blurry It might have something to do with the humidity and dampness but it shows there still is waldos in there

It's about dam time I got off the shnideand got my @ss back in the boat.. Todd if we can stay in the teens again tonight on the white bass count it will be another good night.. winkgrinwhistlelaugh Call ya when I get back from my game..

with no wind the fishing was not as good as it was last night I think tonight would have been a better early evening bite but who knows. I scratched a limit of nice eaters and Todd caught a couple, fished hard from 9:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. We had a good time busting chops about the band playing at the beach they were freaking horrible. Didn't know you could butcher a classic like "Freebird" like that and pay to get in...:D I landed a nice 4 pd. smallie... Good times Todd...

Good job guys.

I got out today and the word is that the bite has been zero and it was like that until we finally put something together. We were trying out deep and looking for fish but nothing and the humps were empty of walleye's but full of nice perch so we put our heads together and found something promising and going out tomorrow morning to put it to the second test. We ended up with 10 fish in 2 drifts and will update tomorrow.

Was out doing the bass thing the other night and stayed until it got dark. At sunset, I was looking at a very bright light at my 10 o'clock, boat in 6 fow casting in with a blue crome sexy shad . . . picked up 3 waldos. Landed a 14.5 and lost the smaller one and a larger one. Switched to a Frenzy, black and crome suspending, had one hit and later a big smallie. Lots of baitfish on the screen . . . also lots of white bass. If you guys haven't done it this Summer, now would be a good time to check your ice flasher batteries; connect, check and recharge to 100% and then disconnect.

Got a chance to fish a bit with Steve and Max, lake was very windy and rough. Didn't catch mych but I did catch this new digital camera it's and Olympus Stylus-550WP I bought this a.m. reading and getting used to it now. Here are some pics of the trip..

Only walleye Steve caught and it was earlier in the a.m. before I arrived. Max can't wait to take a bite out of this 20"er.

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
