I would have thought that by now someone would have reported what's going on. I just heard a boat roaring around the lake. No one have satelitte on the boat to tell the rest of us what's what?

I second the motion, where are the fish biting?........It's tough to tell when you are sitting at a baseball tourney in Eden Prarie and your boat is in your garage in St. Cloud.

We were out on South Lida for about 3 hours. Solid rain, one strike on a spoon but no fish. It got very cold and we packed it in. By the time we got home it was snowing. frown

was on shagawa today and did pretty good. my dad and i were on the water for 6-7 hours and caught 7 fish. 4 smallies at 2 were 2lbs 5oz, 1 4lb 6oz, and 1 4lb 11oz. Then we got 3 eyes at 21in, 20in, 18in. not sure how much they weighed. hope this goes this well for the rest of the week. hopefully better.

Slow on Mille Lacs for 95% of the people I talked to or saw. Did see a couple of nice catches on shore but they could have been shared between a handful or two of people. 4 fish in 7 hours for 3 guys, started with 3 in about half an hour and then the bite stopped on a dime. Law of averages bit down hard on me this year after two GREAT openers up there. Late ice out, slow winter, lots of forage, etc. etc. Things will get better up there as the water warms I believe. Could have used some wind!

Cold and ice still on at least half of Big Bay on Vermilion, but we did pretty well.

Boated 41 walleyes and kept 16 with my clients on Saturday.

Mostly male fish, 13" to 17", but the bite was slow and steady.

Slow here in the metro, only had a few bites and of those only managed to boat a couple fish. Water temps were low 50s.

Hey Cliff, Josh from MN Guide Service, good report, not as nice as it was at Cabelas last weekend!, Had a limit of crappies up to 2.75 lbs on Sat with a group (yes they wanted crappies) and Sunday 3 bags worth of walleyes from the local St. CLoud area lake, same deal through back a bunch, but kept some decent 15-18" fish. Fish are biting, but ya gotta look! Good Luck everyone., Cap. Josh

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
