That 694/35E construction and traffic makes it tough, eh?

Good luck if you guys get out! I'd head out too with my ride, but MPLS to MG to WBL isn't doable........

CJAC, I am in champlin, here is a shortcut: go 610, to 35W S, then take county 96 east, it is maybe 2nd or 3rd exit after merging onto 35, takes you right into WBL, cuts at least 20+ minutes out of your drive time. I am totally guessing at distance, but maybe upwards of 10 miles on 96. Just know it is a lot easier doing that vs. the 694/35 mess

Man fish were going last night. We caught two muskies within 10 minutes of casting. Then proceeded to catch 5 pike and two REALLY nice bass. Not bad for only getting 2.5 hours out!

fish were active, got a musky and a nice pike around 8lbs. The musky was around 36inches, how were the muskies you got?

One about the same, 35.5 and a 41. Had 1 big fish follow on a underutilized method...jigging a big rubber near the bottom in about 30 feet. Cranked it up real fast and this fish came STRAIGHT UP from the bottom after the bait and missed it.

Pretty funny at one point, we were changing spots and trolling about 5mph. I had a weagle on and was jerking/bouncing it about 30 yards back in the prop wash. "Man that would be hilarious if I caught a fish this way!!!" Not 10 seconds later a mid 30's pike just EXPLODED on the bait and got hooked. Surprised the [PoorWordUsage] out of us!

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
