Dang! I am dropping my boat off at Frankies for storage tomorrow. I know, I could fish. But, I have to get it in for winterization and storage when I have the chance. Other work is piling up at home!

Good luck. Can't wait to see some pictures.

Man, today was cold and windy with on and off snow and rain. The bite was slow and boat positioning was hard even on the "calm" side. The gusts were pretty storng. Managed a few despite the wind.

I also got my much needed new seats from Ranger! What do you guys think. At the very least my lower back doesn't hurt so bad when going through the bigger waves!

Forgot to check the bass forum again. Oh well, I can put up a pic. I'll back Tonka up, boat positioning was impossible anywhere more than 50 feet from the calm shore. The good news is the bass on this particular lake appeared to be looking for frogs entering the lake. Got one just under 21". I though it would go over 22, but I think the weather altered my perception (and don't make fun of my muskie measuring stick). Dwarfs the snake my dad caught to complete a double. No word though, or a pic of the full fish on the board (my brother shouldn't be allowed to operate the camera).

I took Thurs and Fri off so I missed the secret word, but the fishing was awesome! I lost count of the 3 to 4 pound bass I caught. I also had a upper 40's inch muskie follow my buzzbait to the boat. That got the heart pumping!

Here is a shot of my largest of the weekend. It was 20.5" and 5lb 9oz.

I got skunked Friday afternoon. Was on the lake at 3:45 and I fished till 6:30. I tried the rage tail shad, Zara spook, Minus one, spinner bait, buzz bait, and a wacky rigged sinko... Nothing. I had at least 8 or 9 swing and misses on the rage and the spook. Water temp was 50 degrees and the water was clear so I'm thinking either that lake turned already or was just about to. Still very weird to have that many fish simply miss the hook. I did set the hook on one and felt the weight but she came unbuttoned after a second or so... Frustrating. I'll try to get out at least a couple more times yet.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
