Starting on Anglers, if the wind gets bad then who knows. 5 shacks tonight on Smiths 4 on the bouy line 1 in shallow. 5 shacks were off the ramp on Emerson this afternoon. Millers ice is iffy be careful on there.

Wind is the forcast for Sunday with the bottom dropping out of the temps. NW winds 25-30 with higher gusts. High early in the low 30's falling to the teens to near single digits by dark. We may be in the canals Sunday just to be able to fish and somewhat get out of the wind. Unless PP pounds them in Smiths grin

found some fish in Smith's but nothing to fast or exciting patience was the key and if someone was moving around or drilling holes get ready you should be seeing fish soon.

Did anyone brave the weather yesterday? I was planning on heading down early but quickly changed my mind after stepping outside and finding everything iced over and 40 mph wind blowing.

Canals. I haven't been around the lake,saw 1 shack out in the middle of Browns this afternoon on the rock pile. Must be fair ice he was along ways out. I'll be on Millers Sat hopefully. i need my walleye fix. Shacks were out between Stoney and Cottenwood Saturday with quads. Not sure how they got there but there were several for awhile.

I sent quite a ways out off Cottonwood on Saturday with my sled. I did not like the looks of the ice so I walked 3/4 of the way to Stoney punching holes all the way. It was 8-10 inches out there. I marked quite a few fish at 14 fow but I didn't conncect with any of them.

I followed the shore line out of Angler's. There was another guy down by the footbride a good ways out.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
