Any Crow Lake info out there as I am very excited too!!! We got dumped on here on the Range and the lakes do have some slush now. Hope they didn't get too much on the trout lakes up there. Muskie Bay or bust!!!!

Crow is froze over and with temps below -20C everyday for the last week I am sure it is getting close. The wind kept most of the snow off of crow so I am not sure if slush will be a problem. I have to leave for s.ontario soon so I won't know what the conditions are and the owners of Muskie Bay had to leave for the week due to a death in the family. They will be back early next week I believe. Then I would call them and get a report, they should have a parking lot and road to the main lake by then.

This will be my first trout opener in Sioux Narrows and I can't wait!! Any big drifts on the lake this year like last year? Was up on WFB in February 08 and there were some up to 6 ft. They can really give the body and equipment a beating on the longer snowmobile trips.

Where are you staying at Jacob?

It is hard to tell what the conditions will be the first of the year. Slush is popping up on the lakes in the are, but the temps have been very cold, so maybe it will be healed up by then. Snow varied alot in the area, some places had alot more than others.

I'll be staying in a bunkhouse at a cabin in Snake Bay and heading out from there on day/night trips.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
