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.

    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there.
