So yeah MOS DEF bring your auger I could definetly use it tomorrow if its possible, then I could get both holes going, I got live suckers too so should be interesting tomorrow.

Call the cell if ya think no one is around, I should be there tomorrow about 10:30-11am

It is the small brown house closest to the hospital on the east side of the lake close to shore. I will run home and grab my auger around 11:00.

Its all good, ya guys didnt miss much the past 2 days, Im thinking of moving the shack again thinking a deep drop off about 150yards from a shut off aerator max depth 44' so im thinkin 10-15fow on the drop. Might be better I like havin 2 holes when Im alone cuz then I can use all my reel weeds in one hole n not have to worry about them tangling with a fish that I spear but will still attract some fish. Still waiting on the 40+"

northern I saw in the lake 3 weeks ago... wish he'd show up again smile

Hi! This is Heidi..Laska girlfriend. The boyfriend is outta town and i am doing a fishin contest tomorrow..NO NOT SPEARING but some good ol fishin. I am just wondering if i can get a clue on what you guys might use to catch like bass, trout, ect. They got lots of cash prizes! I got some waxies for sunfish and croppies and perch but i dont know what else to bring. Laska left me all his fishin stuff and gave me his name for this forum so if i have questions about fishin i can ask someone that might have a clue?!?! Then next weekend Im goin spearin on my own! smile

If you wanna catch a big ole northern just get a small decoy sucker, Hook it right though the center of the decoy then put it on the ice and step on it. Take that whole mess and drop it right on the bottom of the lake and just wait. Something will come along and grab it. Probably a northern.

This is Heidi again! Thanks for the tips! Well the fishing didnt turn out soo well. Got there a little late and got a crappy spot. It was a very little lake and almost the whole thing was covered in shacks. I finally found a spot off of a point (Laska told me that the points are good spots for noetherns). And there was nothin..not one bite.BUT i still had alot of fun and thats all that matters a i guess. But im looking more forward to going spearing this coming weekend. I have my spot picked out already ( a place me and Laska were going where we ALWAYS see at least a couple northerns). Im pumped!!

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
