  1. Once the water temps start creeping into the 50’s, they’ll start waking up. I wouldn’t consider them active until it hits at least 60. Buuuuuut....you could easily go out and catch one right now
  2. I’m seeing swans everywhere! Are these resident trumpeter swans, or tundra swans heading up north? Can you tell the difference between the two at glance/distance?
  3. Does anyone resort to shooting unprotected birds to keep them away? For the first time since I’ve been feeding birds, a starling showed up at my feeders. Now there are 2. It will only be a matter of time until there’s flocks of them. I can keep the squirrels at bay with guards, but it would seem shooting starlings with a pellet gun would be the only option in eliminating them.
  4. I have to admit, I was surprised at that ending! Never considered Negan to be the one that would kill her. Unfortunately, next week’s episode looks like a complete snooze fest!
  5. Went to Wild Goose Lake today, just south of Balsam Lake. Shoreline was still locked up, but ice was only about 15 inches thick, and top half was milky white. Drilled holes all over, and only marked an occasional fish. Their appearance on the vexilar gave me the impression they were stressed out and oxygen deprived. I was hoping this lake would have been rejuvenated after things started melting. Wasn’t the case! Drove down to nearby Apple River Flowage to try and salvage the day. Ice conditions were pretty much the same. After drilling a bunch of holes here, I finally marked some fish. Caught 2 decent perch and a bluegill right away, but then they got lock jaw. I think a Muskie moved into the area, as the fish were still down there, but wouldn’t budge for anything! Most likely my last local outing of the season
  6. Haven’t bought my Minnesota license yet, so I swung over to Cedar Lake in Wisconsin. Despite 50+ degree temps, it was pretty chilly sitting out there in the wind. Ice was starting to pull away from the shoreline on the north end. Caught 16 nice crappies, including two 12 inch slabs. They were very picky though, had to continually hop from hole to hole to get them to bite. Only had minnows. I think I would have been able to catch a few more if I had eurolarvaes. First time fishing this lake...look forward to coming here again next winter.
  7. Lake I was fishing today had some open water at creek mouth, was at least 2 dozen swans hanging out there.
  8. Grindstone River does not have any trout. There’s a few streams east if Hinckley that stocked with trout, but they are poor at best. There’s Blackhoof River just east if Barnum...has a marginal population of brook trout, and also receives a run of steelhead. The upper reaches of the Moosehorn River has brook trout. Big and Little Otter Creeks are also marginal trout streams. Personally, I would drive the extra miles and fish the Namekegon and/or Bois Brule Rivers in Wisconsin.
  9. I highly doubt Golden State would take the Ball kid. A shooting guard is the last thing they need. They need a big man to deal with Anthony Davis for the next few years.
  10. The draft is going to be rigged for Golden State to get the first pick, so I’ll be content with the wolves getting the 2nd or 3rd pick.
  11. Wolves are a funny team sometimes. They’ve literally been the worst 3 point shooting team for the past few seasons. But they hold the record for most made this season. And it was either last year against Lakers, or year before against Cleveland (I just remember LeBron was in the game), that both teams combined for all time 3 pointers made. I think there’s a jolt of energy with the remaining team. I think they’re all glad Wiggins is gone. I just hope any extra winning this team may do, doesn’t hinder the front office from firing Saunders.
  12. So glad Wiggins is gone! Not too thrilled that Russell is replacing him. At the very least he’s about $2 million cheaper. And apparently he’s good friends with KAT. Hopefully we’re smart with who we draft. None of it matters until we get a new coach!
  13. I like what they’re doing. I’m getting nervous though, I keep hearing Rosario’s name come up as trade bait. Really don’t want to see him go.
  14. Wolves trade Covington in part of a 4 team trade. I read we were offering 1st round picks to Golden State for DeAngelo Russell. WHAT?!?!?! Our GM should be fired immediately if that’s true! We need to be accumulating draft picks, not trading them away! Especially for a guy that underachieves almost as much as Wiggins.
  15. The team is regressing. Another of many reasons Saunders needs to be fired! What good are a bunch of young players, if they don’t have a coach that can make them better?
