Do Mille Lacs smallies count? I hope so, hopefully I can find someone willing to give them a shot on Saturday morning. Or maybe Sunday morning.

No can do this weekend. I will be trying again the weekend of the 11th. Went out Saturday and caught a few in the 18-18.5" range, but nothing bigger...

How about expanding it to include Friday eve? Post the "special word" at 2:00 pm'ish. There's going to be a bunch of guys chucking steel this weekend on the lakes, and I'd prefer to let them have some alone time. (Not really, the honeydo list is piling up, and Friday looks to be my only alone time wink )

I'm ready to go again. More pictures everybody, even if they are ONLY 18 INCHES!!! That is still a nice fish. I like the secret word to validate the fish. I am going to put some tape on my board so you can see the numbers more clearly. Any suggestions on how to calm the fish for the photo? Last week mine kept jumping and flopping to the point I was starting to worry about the health of the fish. Great idea Dietz.

I won't be able to fish this weekend, but if there's another one next weekend I'm in as I have a trip planned. I'd just need someone to call me with the secret word as I'll be away from a computer starting Friday morning. grin

I was planning some fall walleye action but I can always find some time to try to entice a pig Bass.

Great idea Dietz. I did not post any pics last week. I did a few on 15 nd 16 inch fish for practice. Maybe this week I can sneak in the back door with a 18 or 19 incher. However, now that the bar has been set and we are in the fall I would guess a 21 or 22 inch class fish will take the prize.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
