Well, Junky we live on the western side of the state. We are very lucky because in a 20 minute drive we can reach a good selection of lakes from Big Cormorant, Pelican and many smaller ones also. Wishing we had not put the boat away today!

HI Junky, I'm from Iowa, but spend most of my summer in Waterville MN. Was up your way about 10 years ago. We drove up to Grand Marai. Then drove back down the North Shore spending time in the different State Parks. We ended that vacation with a fishing charter on Lake Superior. Its very nice up that way.

Thanks Mary. I was born in Grand Marais. Did you make it up the Gunflint Trail at all when you were up there? At the end of the trail is Saganaga, state record walleye caught there. That lake I swear has my soul. Love it when I'm up there and think about when I'm not. Have a wonderfull day, Junky.....

HI Junky, No we didn't go up the gun flint trail, but I wish we would have. At the time I don't think we knew anything about it.
Since then I have read 2 books about 2 different women that lived up there. Onw was the Root Beer Lady and the other I don't remember the name but she feed the deer in the winter. They were both very good books.

HI Jackmac, I'm not familar with that lake, but I'm sure there are people on here that are. I'm from Northren Iowa. Just 2 miles from the Minnesota boarder. North west of Mason City about 45 miles. I don't ice fish so I'm not any help there. Have you looked at the other forums on this site? You'll find answers to all your questions on here. Have fun on here this is a great site.

There is a Pelican Lake in Ottertail county which is where we fish - but a long ways from you guys. This would be east of Barnesville, MN and north or south of Detroit Lakes and west.

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
