Laid off now, Where are the fish biting?

6 posts in this topic

I live in the Chisago Lakes Area. I was Laid off Thursday and now I will have time to sit on the ice and was wondering whats the word on the water?

Any one else have time during the week day and want to hook up?

I just picked up a clam fish trap Voyager and I'm excited to use it.

Cool I have a few honey do lists to take care of but i should be able to get out Wednesday. What lake are you thinking for some crappies? Ive only been on the lake once this yr and that was up at red when we had the -40 weekend. What is the ice thickness around here? I'm kind of a newbie here, i can't find a way to PM you. I click on your name and it only gives me 3 options. view profile, watched users, view posts...

New Flyer of America Inc., a bus building place in St. Cloud, and, DeZurik, a valve builder in Sartell are hiring. My brother-in-law works at New Flyer and says there's about 40 openings, including welders, for third shift. Not sure about DeZurik but they're set to hire maybe 25. Both are on the Interweb or through the state job service. It would be a bit of a ride from Wyoming but 95 across at the North Branch exit doesn't suck the worst.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
