My explorer was reading -4 this morning in the Brainerd Lakes area. It's gonna be a cold one the next couple of days. It was kind of a nice feeling stepping outside of my house this morning and having my nostrils freeze in the first sniff.

Thanks for showing your face Winter!!

-7 with a windchill of -18 here in The Metropolis of Cook!!! I'll be heading out onto Myrtle lake in Orr tomorrow morning and Sunday morning. I was out two weeks ago and there was 11" of ice. Then I tried to go out to the same lake on New Years Day (after the rain/sleet/snow on New Year's Eve) and the ice was making way too much noise underneath my machine. Every step I took caused a snapping sound under me so I got the heck off the lake. It blew my mind how there was 11" the weekend before and then the ice sounded like it was going to bust with every step a week later. There was a LOT of weight on that lake with all the rain we had before the snow came. I'm thinking it was a layer of ice ontop of the true ice that was cracking and making me think it wasn't safe. Either way I didn't stick around long enough to drill a hole. I yelled for the dog and we zipped back across the lake to our hunting shack and went home. If somebody on shore was watching me they must have laughed their butts off. They would have seen a guy walking very slowly around the ice and then seen him run like a bat out of hell to his machine and speed away. Hopefully tomorrow I don't hear any cracking. At least not any of the "bad" kind of cracking sounds. I don't mind the popping when ice is being made, but I don't like the cracking when ice is breaking!!!

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
