Right with you guys! I to have to watch what I say in the summer, I have buddy's that tell me I can't talk about ice fishing until after deer season. I still haven't taken the cover off the boat this season and I'm already drawing blue prints of a new fish house I would like to build.

Agreed. I am not a heat person at all. After last winter here in southwestern minnesota I thought I was living in the banana belt not the ice belt. I always tell people that this is the furthest south i will ever live. It is long over due to see the temps back down in the 20's and below. Bring on the cold i am tired of feeling sweat in my beard and time to start feeling ice in it instead.

Yup 40 below for a week would be nice . I went out and stood the Nils up and gave her a hug just last week and funny somebody mentioned to charge the batteries . I put mine on just yesterday but poor things didn't need much . LOL . I even have a ice rod right beside my bed . Get to use it lots cause the dam dog keeps throwing his ball under the bed . Rod makes the the perfect retriever when I can't reach . LOL .

I'm going Soft Wall this Year!!! I picked up a Clam 5600 & a Clam 6800; with the Trap-Link Doors and an Adapter. My fishing Buddy of 40 years is picking up a 6800 this afternoon. One has 4-holes with a 5x6 floor, the other has 6-holes and a 6x8 floor. Too Cool!!!full-39914-35244-c.jpg

Nice and good luck to you too when you go. You will have to let us know how it goes. I am scouting little local lakes around here and talking about the this winter season. With the lows in the mid 40's coming up it is going to be hard on me knowing that the ice is still a few months out from forming

We're going to start at Winnie, and then a couple days & Red, then back to Winnie. We're going to try Cutfoot Sioux for Crappies. I could use assistance for Blue Gils and Crappies, as where to go. I think trying some small lakes may be the way to go.

I am hoping we have an early ice,...

Hey Rikkus here we are at the beginning of what is going to be another steller year on the ice 2018. And this year has me looking for a Trap-Link connector for my Clam Yukon and 5600. In your feed you stated that you and a buddy had aquired a couple a few years back. If you still have one Or an extra I am willing to pay Handsome for it...let me know...Catch Your Limit!

    • Got my ND birds back yesterday.  
    • 😣 looks like I need to cover my plants tonight, there's a frost advisory here.
    • I wish I could have gotten pictures, but a bird I could not identify, looked it up and had American Redstart on my deck today, there were about 3 or 4 of them. very awsom.
    • Planted onions,carrots,green beans,lettuce,beets and potatoes yesterday before the rain. The carrots, beans, beets and lettuce are 2 varieties of each as a varieties test for NDSU Horticulture Department.
    • so, last nite I busted my butt to get all my peppers. maters, celery and green beans planted before the rains came. it was way to windy to plant carrots and the rest of my kolarabi. I wanted to plant my cabbage but grabbed broccoli instead. ISH...… got them today and there in.   so once this crappy weather moves on i'll get anything else in the ground soon.   picked my first bunch of asparagus today!!!!!! there in the process of getting put in a pickling brine!!!!!
    • birds are crazy at the feeders. 4 male orioles fighting, pair of male cardinals going at it. plenty of yellow finches. even have a scarlet tanager here!!!!!!   the tree swallows showed up as well as a pair of wrens checking to rent!!!!!!!
    • Just about done.  All the pads are finished up. All the trim has a clear coat on it now(2 coats around the windows and door). I also got some blinds installed.  I had a nice surprise from my mom.  She bought me a tv for it.  I had planned on putting a tv in it before next ice season so thats awesome to get one installed early.  Its going to make its madden voyage next weekend.  We are going up to Cut Foot Sioux to camp for memorial day weekend. Now its time to clean it all up good and stock it up for camping.
    • For the 2019 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went out on Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. Our first day the fishing was slow with a lot of different tactics and areas tried. We made a change that evening and casted artificials into rocky shorelines with a lot of success. We decided to try that again the next morning when a large surprise inhaled my jerkbait!    
    • Another good start from Perez last night, Kepler & Adrianza with 5 of the 7 RBI's
    • Smoking the ball.
