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!

    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time. 
    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
    • Just buy whatever truck you want and get started adding after market accessories, probably cheaper than buying all that stuff standard on a niche truck that will likely be really over priced due to it being a specialty item.  Most of that list could probably be doable fairly easily.  Personally I don't think half of that list is kind of pointless though.  If your non-camo truck with reflective chrome bumpers is giving you away to the animals you might want to get a bit further away from your truck when you're hunting.  If you're really struggling with loose ammo rolling all around the floor of your truck try leaving it in the box when its not in your gun. Key less entry might be nice but if you lose your key in the woods it will just give you a place to sit while you wait for someone to give you a ride home. Can't you already turn your lights/high beams off when your truck is running?
    • Most of that would be do-able by a small outfit (not 4 wheel steering).   Business opportunity for someone
    • Also got my bonus tag. Both tags bought and ready to rock in a couple months.  
    • Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag.  Quick and easy.
    • Haven’t spotted any yet myself but I know it won’t be long before that changes. But I could use a ride on the moped! Gotta wait yet till the sweepers clear all the sand on the roads first. 
    • Saw a Red crotchrocket day before the last big storm. 🤪
    • saw the first bike Tuesday afternoon go by the house....  39* no way for me............  and it was a HD....
