I talked to a guy today that said last weekend they saw a guy in a boat on Big Cormorant fishing and a guy ice fishing on Middle Cormorant. There is only a road that divides these two lakes. But, the 2 ice houses that were on Middle Cormorant last weekend have been removed.

Well, i got my boat put away, but if it starts gettin' warm, I will just have to get it unput away haha
My plan is if we have a warm dry winter, fish open water, if cold and snowy, mostly ice fish.

It's not over for me. I can't wait for ice fishing, but I also fish open water year round. I fish smallies on the river right up until the end of the season in February. And Pool 2 & 4 are both great for winter walleye fishing. A couple of years ago we took the boat up to the Horseshoe Chain in December. After breaking through some shoreline ice we ended up catching some nice channel cats. In March & April I focus on suckers, redhorse, carp etc. & Pool 2 walleyes. Last spring I fished the Hidden Falls area in a boat and had waterskiers zip past me while guys were still ice fishing in the marina area. Only in Minnesota! Vern

Yeah.. my uncle does the winter thing by the dam in Redwing up through december; Q though: isn't all that cold weather hard on the lower unit-- which is bad when your intake valve freezes shut? How do you avoid that? I'm allways told to drain the lower unit before putting it in outside storage; so I'm supposing a heated garage is pretty much a requirement if you plan to boat all year.

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
    • Heres a pic of those relays. People out riding the trail out here and my sled is in the shop.
