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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
