18 posts in this topic

Well, the porty is sitting in the shop set up with the sun facing it to dry out. Perm on mille lacs is blocked up in dry dock after one last weekend out last weekend. wheel house is ready to take the place of the camper in the shed. Now that I'm done I'm ready for spring, and i see in the forecast that we might get dumped on again!!!

was a decent year. late out on Mille Lacs again, but the fishing was slightly better than last year. can't wait until next year!!

I just walked out of the BWCAW earlier today. Did okay. Caught some decent sized crappie and jumbo perch, plus 2 10" sunnies. Not a bad way to end my ice fishing season! grin

Well guys, we'll see you next year...ON THE ICE!

The way it's looking on the LOTW we are gonna perhaps get to fish thru the closure of Walleye season on April 14th. Who knows maybe a bit of piking yet after that??

Westside access's are holding up well. Solid clear ice 3 foot plus.

Day by day thing but this would'nt surprise me.

Pick a day and make it, enjoy the spring season!!

Not much for good ice around here so I and some buddies headed up to the Park rapids area for one last day on the ice yesterday. When we went out the shoreline was solid and by the time we left there was about 10ft of exposed shoreline and knee deep water to contend with. Summer cant come soon enough for me.

Saw a guy driving a truck out on Bemidji today, looked like a mid size ranger or something of that sort.

There is still close to 2 feet of ice up here. Won't that hold a small truck?

There was plenty of good ice where I was this past weekend, but as always this time of year the shoreline was the issue.

The main Ice was fine and solid, it's just the shorelines getting eaten up.

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
