King - had me going for a while there. Safe ice by next weekend seems doubtful but if there is some around I'm sure you will find it. Hope the massive amount of runoff from last weeks showers didn't dirty the waters real bad. Be nice to be on the pond before Christmas.

Thunder - I think Timmy said exactly the same thing "not that I need anything but it doesn't hurt to look" at the diner in Richfield last year laugh. I know what you mean, I've got lures I haven't used in years and I still buy more. Looking forward to using the "Thunder special" on those Oneida Lake jumbos this year. I've been walking up and down my basement stairs 20 times a day to get ready for that little hill in Jewell crazy.

Going to the show on Friday hope to see you guys then.

22* and 4 inches of snow on the ground sunday I took a drive to a few small lakes south of me and there were a few backsets skimmed over.The water levels on the small lakes are high from that rain that we had but some calm nights might skim them over grin.

Been getting pounded as well the inches are piling up at least its only light fluffy stuff smile This should chill the water down more. With the next 2-3 nights lows in the single digits and low teens with the low wind speeds some small lakes should be locking up One more week and it should be no problem getting out might even try this upcoming Sunday gotta shoot a deer though before I start icefishing smile

Yeah Thunder thats just a lovely report. The 2nd day of January and all you see is green, green, green. Went out with Glen for a while yesterday, will report later, and the ice was pretty soft already. Continued mild temps and rain will do wonders for it.

On the bright side, good day to wash that Toyota!!! Have a good day, need to meet up on the hard water.

Thunder - thanks for the report. That amount of snow on top of what was already on the lakes makes the lakes we fish south of you just about unfishable. We need a fn thaw.

When all said and done the snow was up to my knees (about 20") and it was heavy stuff that was compacting as soon as it built up some depth. The lakes are a fun slushy mess smile walked through snow/slush today and yesterday that was half way up to my knees woo hoo fun stuff

    • If anyone checks in here and has any reports, light us up! 😄   I don’t know how many ducks are left in MN with the recent cold snap but there has to be some.  Last weekend we shot a 3 man limit in western MN.  Mostly spoonies but saw 10 different species and harvested 5 of them.   I thought I had two really nice GWT teal drakes but I’m not 100% sure I should mount one.  So early in the season and they still have some pin feathers.     Is that chair at the top of the pic?  Why, yes it is.  My buddy has a sweet set up with some old chairs I gave him.   Feet still got a little cold but it was a super easy watch over the dekes.   Tonight at home I went down to my blind for the last 20 minutes to see what might be flying.  No gun.  NO PHONE!  4 hooded mergansers flew by and 6 GWT settled in pretty much at my feet. The two drakes were really nice - probably nicer than the two in the pic.  One coot was hanging around with them.    The no phone/no pics was probably the best duck call and deke spread ever. 🙃
    • I have fished this stretch for what seems forever. Two hundred yards downstream I caught my first trout at age five. I am certain that I was given one of my lessons on stream by my father on this stretch. He typically gave a "what is that" speech at least once during an outing. The lessons varied from what kind of tree or wildflower was streamside to being a good steward of the outdoors. His lessons taught me to love the places trout lived. He held them in high regard, They were almost holy places to him. He was not a religious person. When he spoke on stream it seemed like a sermon almost. My mom required me to go to church often and my Dad's speeches seemed like they came from the pulpit. He always told me to take it all in and always respect the outdoors.  This summer I was wading up this stream. The weeds were too high to walk the bank. I took a good friend with me to my special stretch of water. I wanted to share this place with him that evoked such strong memories of my father. My dad left me over half a century ago but his spirit lives on when I am on stream. I had a special hole that I wanted to show my friend. I was bursting with anticipation prior to getting there. My mind was replaying ancient memories almost like a slideshow. I remembered the first time there with my dad. I was five years old again. My trip to the past was abruptly terminated. Our trek had a hurdle. It was a wow moment. There in the tiny head water of my stream of time there was an obstruction. What had caused this to happen? It had endured countless rain events, even huge floods through its lifetime. I was certain my dad and I had walked in these same tracks decades prior. At first I was sad looking at the giant felled tree. My mind was rushing to and fro from years past. This tree was for sure older than me and it now laid across my stream. I paused and gave it the respect it deserved and pressed on to my final destination. Call it a metaphor or ramblings of an old gray trout slayer but it is a prominent memory in my book of life.
    • The camera gets turned toward me ever so often
    • had robins Monday but nothing today..
    • Robins are gone as well as most other birds. Think only the locals still here.
    • Woody seems to be a great guy and knows the lake really well from what I have followed.  He used to post on here, and I would follow his summer adventures, and boy did he seem to catch fish...and BIG fish!  I don't think you can go wrong using Woody!!!
