Hey, Smeds!

Howdy from a former fellow Bayfield Co. resident. I lived in Cable for almost ten years. Didn't fish for a portion of that, but have spent some time on the local lakes around there, mostly to the north of you. Fished Round lake through the ice many years ago a couple times, but wouldn't remember where any more. Like to hit Nelson in the spring for walleye, and use to do it through the ice for crappies fairly often as well. Hey, let me and Steve know when Nelson freezes over, wouldn't be aposed to a day trip down there from Souptown here. Keep us posted.

I'm in! I'm in! God, I can hardly stand the wait. It got into the teens last night in Superior and all the puddles were frozen. Sheesh, when's the ice going to come? frown.gif

Hey Smeds:

Stinger and I both top out well over 200, though we're not gross or anything. Somehow, I don't think the three of us will be setting up in a tight group with 2.5 inches of ice. grin.gif

Ya, WELL, over 200....hehehe. Oh well, you know what Popeye used to say, "I am what I am, and that's all what I am". Oh, and by the way, 2 1/2 inches??....I don't think so, Tim!! I need three to four, then, I'm there "dude".

Set the Hook!!

I will update as soon as it happens! First ice is a great time of year, can't wait! I used to have a fairly large buddy (ie:fat) who usedto walk out first ... now that I lead the way, I need 2 to 2 1/2" for me to not feel panicked. Love walking over a drop off with clear ice, and seeing the look on the face of newbies! See you all on the ice! Smeds <((((()><

I hover around the 200 # mark myself, but my friend was 375+! As long as you move carefully, and spud your way along checking for ice quality, 2.5" is the time to hammer 'em! Maybe by the 2nd weekend of deer season? Let's get coldddddd, and then get on em!

And we're making ice around Superior, with lows in single digits and low teens. Let's hope it doesn't warm up and reverse our ice gains. grin.gif First weekend of deer season would be better, ice allowing. Second weekend I'm at deer camp with the rellies.

    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
    • I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
