Ya Sunday is not looking to good. All I would like is a nice Saturday. Sunday would be cabin time and winterizing.

The wind is what I am worried about.

I'm sure what we get won't stick. The ground is still too warm. I always love the 1st snow! It's the 3,000th snowstorm in the middle of February that starts to get to me! winkgrin

Well, the weather was cooperative on Saturday. Partly cloudy and temps around 50. Winds were 8-15 all day. To bad the fish was not as cooperative. Everyone I talked to at the landing and on the lake was saying slow. However on another lake my brother in law did real well. We could not buy a fish and we watched him catch fish. Oh well.

Saturday around 6:30 all heck broke lose on the wind, blowing right in off the lake. Sunday AM it was a howling and it got worse as the day wore on. Something you don't see everyday happened, as I was sitting at the kitchen table looking out and watched a tree fall down right across the driveway. Missed the boat by 20 yards. If we had 1 more boat up there, it would have been hit. Had to clear that out b-4 departing. Kinda cool watching that happen. NO SNOW at all, just rain.

Ya that was the cool part. A wind gust came up and timber. No snow at all. Even on the way back no snow. It was cold enough to do it.

I wasn't much of a guide this weekend Glenn. We should have gone crappie fishing.

Hi guys! It didn't snow here in Carlton on Saturday either. We had some hail type stuff hit the windows late last night and a few tiny snow showers today but nothing else. Sure is chilly here though (34 degrees) and still pretty windy. Jim got the boat put away and the lawn cut on Saturday too.

YEP! Howard Lake from 197? to 1984 off hwy 6 across from Timbers Resort which was sold to Schmidts. With a couple attemps to move back inbetween. Problem was I tried to move back in late November eek. I didnt leave the house till Feb.(and no warm clothes) and that was to come back here. BUT they say 3's a charm grin Next time it will be early spring and NO TURNING BACK!

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
