Seems like we get blasted more often than not around NYE so this one I’m expecting to some sort of something.  The wind and below zero temps are the plans changer for what I had going on.

 

We’ll see what happens...

I'm hoping to put one of the first set of snowmobile tracks on the trails up here on friday ,,, Well that's if we get the forecast snow ,,, I wont be running fast as rocks may still break things but breaking trail seems like some fun times

Shes pretty darn wet and heavy down here at the bottom of the hill-cities. Don't burn her down running in snow that may not keep her cool.  Good Luck have fun if it's good!

The second round has been going strong in LF for a while again.  The NWS SitRep shows we should expect 6-8 through here by tomorrow; 8-12 from Brainerd to Bemidgi, then slacking off again.  6-8 over Red and only 2-3 at LOW.

 

All the bands are running SW to NE across the state with the worst (8-12) from Alex/Fargo, up through the Arrowhead.  Of the north coast could see 18!

Fished most of the day yesterday with just a few perch to show for my effort.

That 200 yard drag back out today doesn't look like it's worth it.

Just north of Bowstring.

I'd say the storm has dumped over 7" so far, and it is coming down a little heavier at the moment.

 

There was already about 5" of fluffy new snow when we arrived yesterday morning, so it's starting to add up. My bum knee agrees.

:)

 

So I'm calling it for fishing in 2018, it was a good year for me, may 2019 be just as lucky.

Up on da’range, we have to have at least a foot by now, and it’s still coming down heavy. Definitely not good for ice conditions. Heavy, wet snow on top of the ice we have.... guaranteed slush fest! The winds are beginning to howl now, too, and are really supposed to get rippin over night and tomorrow. South/SE shore lines will be buried in drifts. 

 

Going to have to dig out the ole roof rake for this one!  It’s a mess up here!

 

Snowmobile trails will will be good tho!

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
    • No but he knows how to PM me next time! 😉
