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.

    • 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.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
