Where to go, where to stay this weekend

Recommended Posts

Would like to catch pannies or walleye have to walk and would like good ice-Ideas? We might go to Red but seems like a gynormous lake to be walking on. On Red do people stay in a motel on ice some of each?  Famous dude (I will not name drop) at the ice show told me about a good walk to spot on Leech but I am not sure that part of the state has enough ice yet, seems like all the ice is in NW Minnesota. Would be nice to go to a lake like Trout with no ATVs at all ( am I jealous of the ATV guys-yep) PM me if you want we keep stuff secret and I only do trips a couple of times a year so your spot would be safe---

Some good ice at Leech, may go there. Some parts of Leech have 8'' some parts are still open! Seems weird to me

Hope you do well.  Early ice is special for sure.  Leech bays should be fine for walking or atv/sled travel. 

Some guys are fishing Vermillion now and finding 6"+ out 1/2 mile.  Im heading up near Ely tomorrow with the Mrs and will get a little fishing in as well.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
