HMMMMMMM!!!

After 2 days of prefishing I would have thought that my name would have been somewhere on the odds board. Guess they must have had a little Gremlin sitting on my shoulder. Lots of Wallys, but only a few Crappies.

See everybody on Red in less than a week

Brett Favre and I just got back from a 5 dayer up there! Well, Winni too. Now I got 2 other cheddar heads begging me too take them tommorrow for a 3-5 day trip. I think I'll just move to Waskish for the next month or so! I'll probably still be there "pre-fishing" by the time the "Ice Series" rolls around! grin.gif

Put your bait money on the Cyberfish. He's the man on winter crappies. Only Fishface could give him a run for his money.

Word from Vegas insider Team Cheddar out to take the title back to "Title Town". News flash from Green Bay Wisconsin: A team of highly skilled anglers is right now located on a giant school of Red Lake crappies. These anglers are using their instincts to stay on the fish. Cheddarheads are right now at this moment replaying the 1966 Superbowl DVD in their fish houses just to get that winning feeling and the proper vibe for victory.

I think that winning feeling stems from the month old cheese curds I found in the back of my refrigerator. shocked.gif Believe me, the team of so called "highly skilled experts" are nothing more than a couple of beer swilling, cheese eating, hook stuck in the finger, handicaps. One of them broke the globe on my lantern....TWICE!! Nahhh, I think I'll wait a couple days then talk my girlfriend Julie into going, maybe take a couple vacation days off work....She's much better company wink.gif ....And she'll out fish them boys anyday!!! grin.gif

New Red Lake Favorite announced: Julie Canitbeluck. Since Shanny knows women are the anglers to beat Shanny has placed Julie at 5-2. Shanny explains, If past performance is a predictor Julie will fish in a good spot picked by the pro's and she'll use her own special lure and superior angling skill to catch the largest crappie in the system. Lady anglers not afriad to ask for directions to spot making Canitbeluck a greater threat too he's now listed at 9-2. Place your wagers now.

Seabass is going to make a run for the title too, he always seems to catch those slabs!

Two other sleepers who don't post on FM are going to be the hot ticket up there too, looks like you'll have to wait and see who they are wink.gif Just a little hint...fishing runs in my family...

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

I think Leboux can help with that. Colonel Klink has Sgt Schultz on night watch.

A couple of pieces of strudel to Sgt. Schultz and....."I see nothing!, I hear nothing!" WGMSA, How can Julie refuse now? Thanks! I needed a little help trying to convince her to chase her "destiny". Then I wont have to ride with my 2 friends (Team cheese dip) in the gas guzzling Sherman tank(motor home). I can just hook up with them there to use there facilities....and not pay another $300 in gas like we did last week! Oh the wheels are turning now! Lets see, perhaps some more "clearance sale" Valentine flowers are in order. Picked up a dozen roses and a vase for $6 yesterday! grin.gif PS: Hey Matt, I think we're related......Can you send me some GPS coordinates? Please? grin.gif Seriously, can you help a brother out?

Spook, are you planning on catching these fish yourself or is that why you are bringing Z with? wink.gif Either way, you better hope that he doesn’t out-fish you as badly as he did on LOW! grin.gif I would never hear the end of it if he walked away with the title!

At present I am not planning on fishing this one, unless of coarse the weather is perfect and Cyberfish convinces me to Go.

9/2 odds. Not bad considering I havent touched Red yet this year. Its Frozenminnows job to put us on fish. grin.gif I may have something up my sleeve though.
Poutslayer should be in at about 40/1. Oh wait this is Crappie fishing isnt it? Forget it Poutslayer will only catch Northern and Pout and play with Perch all day! grin.gif
Poutslayer leave your scissors at home for this one!! grin.gif

Its gonna be a good weekend for sure! Northlander I figure that we would set up perimeter all the way around MJ5 and catch the ones that Mr. Crappie misses due to having to re-bait. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif
Sounds like we may have some really nice weather.

Spook,
I couldn’t resist poking a little fun at you guys, that many fish coming out of one shack just isn’t fair. I'm sure that if wgmsa knew how the Fish-Gods were smiling down on you guys, your odds would have been much higher! If the same sort of success repeats itself on URL, you’re looking at a clean sweep at this event.

I understand that you have put together quite a trip! I will be making some venison jerky to bring along.

Talking 20 to 30 degrees Friday threw Sunday. Best thing is the weather will have been steady for almost a week so the fish should be on the move. This could be a very exciting trip. Lots of things seem to be falling in place for us Frozenminnow!

Update from Shanny Deridan-

Odds on choice 3-1 Julie canitbeluck
Brian Jones 3-1
Jigglestick 7-2
Frozen Minnow 4-1
Northlander 9-2
Matt Brueur 9-2
Mandy Pepridge 5-1
zara spook 5-1
Barebackjack 6-1
beaverlakeman 6-1
housebuyerguy 7-1
Paul Waldowski 7-1
Lucy Van Pelt 8-1
MJ5 8-1
Deerslayer 8-1
Bronzeback 9-1
Dennis Steele 10-1
Kaz 12-1
Don Nelson 30-1
Jimmy Houston 50-1
Brad Radke 65-1


Shanny's inside info has Matt Brueur and Brian Jones on fish and looking good. Their hooksetting has been sound and they both sport fresh line and sharp hooks. Julie is still the angler to beat. Women are undefeated in ICE events enough said from Shanny. Dennis Steele is a solid longshot chance at 10-1. Dennis has been seen working overtime on his game...good play for the money.

    • Sounds like a great trip and a really fun experience, congratulations! Thanks for all the pictures and sharing your story. I know that's a lot of work and it is much appreciated.
    • At this point we had one full day and one morning left to hunt.  No more elk moved into the drainage behind camp.  By some miracle a cow and spike did come back to the hillside we had elk on that first evening, but neither Dad or I could get in position quick enough before they went back over the fence.     All added up we had 2 very good opportunities, and one decent, which by our standards and past experience in general OTC type units was a pretty decent week of elk hunting even though no elk were killed.  We learned a lot about the unit and a potential better way to access the landlocked area behind us via a possible easement logging road, but we have to confirm that with the forest service at a later date.       You might be wondering what happened with our whitetail tags.   We had numerous run-ins with deer on an almost daily basis.  There were at least three occasions where does would feed right into camp, and it got to a point I kept my bow in the cook shack to try to shoot out of it as a blind.  They never stuck around long enough though to actually get a shot off.      Dad sat his tree stand a number of times above camp as he came down at sunset with enough time to sit in a tree for a half hour or so, but the deer always seemed to pass through the spots he could not shoot or see.  One time he climbed down to two deer staring at him from within range, he just did not see them coming...   Almost every evening we walked down the road behind camp we would kick up a deer or two bedding in the quakeys, but as the week progressed they clearly became more skittish of us.  I also tried hunting back down the gravel road and found some good spots where they crossed the road and creek, which if I actually focused on sitting over with a treestand I feel I could have shot a deer, but I wanted an elk more...        Our Elk B tags are good through rifle season, as are the deer tags.  If the stars align and my wife allows I might make a run back out.  I have an acquaintance in the area that I am checking with to see if he might be interested.       I hope Scoot and ArcherySniper come back to report better luck on their hunts.  
    • It rained that night, and the next morning we went up high to glass back where we left the elk.  They seem to have never left the cut we saw them bed in.       Some interesting low clouds.   It rained all afternoon, but the forecast said it would clear a couple hours before sunset.   We observed snow on the high peaks in the distance.        Once the rain stopped and the skies looked clear we went back to see if we could finally shoot an elk.  We worked the wind back up to where we had last sat so we see the elk and still move down to intercept if they came down for water/feed.   The elk were still up high, but shifted left a couple cuts.  We were now close enough to confirm that the bull was in fact a smallish 6 point.       We waited a long time watching the cows get up to feed and then bed down again repeatedly.  As sunset neared the lead cow looked ready to commit to coming down.  Our plan was to run down fast to intercept, watching as we fast-walked down to the bottom.   It was clear now the elk were following the left most ridge, and moving quite fast, they definitely wanted to get to the bottom for the good creek water and green grass!      The plan was I would run ahead to intercept as I could get their faster.  I knew the place they were going, having scouted it earlier in the week.  It was a perfect funnel.  The cows went behind the narrow ridge they were following, but the bull stayed high watching the drainage.  I managed to get up through the saplings quietly and in position, and could see the bull up high, and the cows feeding and walking right to me on a string!      Unfortunately behind me I heard a loud stick break.  The bull did too and was pacing back and forth rapidly trying to figure out what was below him...  I could see my dad standing in the creek bottom.   I adjusted my position, the cows were coming closer, I ranged for shot options, they would pass within 40yd and the bull might walk right over me...    The bull unfortunately had had enough.  He swooped down to the cows and herded them back up the hill...  The cows had no clue what was going on, but the bull clearly was not stupid.   After waiting until it was close to dark I picked my way back down to my dad, who was standing on the cattle trail we had gone up previously.  It turned out that he tripped over a downfall fell badly.   He was not hurt, but he thought the bull could not see him, but I had a better view from above as to what was going on.  Those elk were not seen again for the rest of the hunt.    
    • Unfortunately the weather turned bad on us and it rained over night, I forget if it was day four or five.   In any case a cloud system rolled in and low cloud ceiling filled the drainage behind camp.        We went up the front side of the area hoping elk would be out there to get out of the clouds.  It was extremely windy now as well.  I went high back where I saw the spike days earlier and was glassing back up the drainage when I saw a bull and three cows in the wide open up high!   I considered running down the cut between us to try to intercept in the creek bottom below, but did not want to risk bumping these elk when they were the only elk in the entire drainage!     Dad sidehilled across to join me, followed by a herd of mule deer does...      Selfie with cloud covered hills.        We watched where the elk bedded and decided to ambush them in the evening.  We decided to drive out to town to hit the grocery store so Dad could have more fresh food and not have to resort to eating what I brought.  The cloud system over the area did not look good from below at all...     That evening we went to the hill the elk were on in the morning so we could see where they were bedded.  The clouds were so thick now in the drainage we could not see up to where the elk were.  It was very windy and cold. The elk never showed up.  We left before sunset.     Another selfie in the clouds, so cold and windy I had to break out the facemask and extra layers while hunkering down behind a blowdown.      
    • I told my dad that he should not follow me up that hill, it might kill him.  He did not take me seriously...  He followed anyway.  We left camp very early as it was a long walk up the drainage, and I wanted to be on top before the elk, but I still needed daylight to get up the dangerous last 700ft.     Sunrise behind me on the way up:   I made it to the top and set up in the rock outcropping.  Time passed, Dad was nowhere to be seen behind me.  I saw a group of elk below me in the next drainage, a nice bull and what might have been the cows/calves I was seeing on the spine the previous days...     I waited, and waited, and saw lots of fresh tracks in the dirt.  Dad showed up, still no elk up high...  We waited until about 10am, long past when they had passed through the other times.  The elk below us bedded and a satellite bull moved in on them.  Another bull was bugling to the one below us, and we heard one lone bugle to the right.   We had no intention of going down to try to shoot one, because if we did it would be a nightmare for us to get the meat out again.        We gave up and picked our way back down the chute and all the way to camp.  After doing this walk two days in a row my feet hurt like hell and I was beat.  I would not be able to do it again a third day in a row.     
    • I think it was the third morning when I walked back up the big drainage behind camp to get a good look on the ground for elk sign.  On the way I saw more elk way up on the spine of the drainage.  Lots more elk sign in the back cuts.  It was clear this area held a lot of elk during the summer, but they got busted out by hunters during the early part of the season.    I decided I was going to get a closer look at the potential trail to the top of the drainage spine.  I am a rock climber, so heights don't bother me so much.  I was more concerned about footing and if my dad could get up there, and if I did shoot one how would I get it down...   The top of the spine where I was targeting was 1600ft above camp, the last chute is about 700ft alone and very steep.   I slowly picked my way up the chute, sweating profusely in the sun, but was rewarded at the top.    The view back to camp:   The view down the back side, one square mile of almost entirely private landlocked national forest.       The elk highway along the spine that I was seeing elk use, and was covered in fresh tracks.       The elk trail at the top funnel together at a rock outcropping that I knew I had to use as a blind. If I shot an elk up here it would have to be at the very top, because hauling meat down the hill behind me was bad enough, but I did not want to have to haul any up the hill either as it was just as steep on the other side!   I made plans to come back early the next morning and kill an elk at this spot.   That evening I sat on the other hill we had been hunting more consistently, and watched the herd of elk taunting us from a far off ridge.  Here is one of the small satellite bulls.    
    • Dad had seen a black bear below him that first morning, and when I walked down the next day with him I was able to snap some photos in the early light with my bigger camera.  They are grainy, but it looked like a nice bear to me.  We did not have a tag.     Herd of elk way out on private range land:   Interesting spider:
    • Unfortunately this is where the trip gets boring.   That herd we accidentally set up on the very first evening moved across the fence and taunted us from the other side all week.  We knew it was a good spot, but wind directions did not cooperate, and no more elk would cross the fence there no matter how much we wanted them to or how good the sign was on that hillside.    The second morning I went higher above to glass back up the main drainage.  Far up on the rim of the drianage I saw a few elk walk across the spine.  I knew from the map there was one chute that could access the national forest behind us, and as far as I knew there were no other ways back up there.  I added some waypoints to onx.   As I worked around the hill glassing, I eventually walked into a spike bull bedded.  Unfortunately he was alone, and some cattle fed into him and bumped him out.  He then saw/smelled me and busted out never to be seen again.     The drainage behind camp:   Elk on the high rim of the drainage:   Looking down to camp where the whitetail deer live:   Spike bull elk at 90yd. 
    • As luck, or bad luck, would have it the first evening was one of our luckiest.  We hiked up the main logging road that took us to the front of the drainage overlooking some prime grazing areas.  We hiked back to where we hit a private ranch fence that had timber on the other side, hoping elk would come out to feed and we could observe.   We no sooner arrived at our observation point and a raghorn bull across the valley saw us coming and blew out ahead of us...      We found a place to sit by a grove of shorter quaking aspens (I think).  We waited and waited, and I scouted behind the grove and came back to let my dad know there was a lot of elk sign on the hillside above us...     As sunset rolled around we heard something behind us, Dad though it was birds.  There were birds in the aspens, but this was much louder.   I figured there were elk coming right to us, so we knocked arrows and waited.  Fortunately they wind was right, and now thermals kicked in to further assist.    Sure enough elk had moved right into us.  If we were facing uphill instead of out across the valley we would have had easy shots.  Unfortunately the elk sensed something was wrong, so we each snuck around opposite sides of the grove.  I went high side, and saw an elk 40yd in front of me, but I thought I saw antlers so did not move further for a shot.  I waited.  Dad had gone low, not as quietly, and the elk were moving off now.  I saw a huge herd bull crest the hill above, and a cow and calf stood in front of me at 80yd.   I drew on them, but did not shoot.         After the frustration wore off, we headed back to camp.  We crossed the last cattle gate above camp just before dark, and I looked up to see two whitetail does standing there staring at us.  I couldn't believe it...  I quickly confirmed they were whitetail, and we both ranged them for 35yd.  I drew to shoot, settled in for the shot, and watched as my arrow sailed right over the does back...  I couldn't believe it.  I made sure I was using the right pins, and even doing a test shot the next day showed the bow was shooting accurately...   Throughout the week we learned the whitetail deer were consistently feeding and bedding right around our camp.  Dad set a tree stand not more than 100yd above camp.
