    We got one for Christmas…..it’s still sitting upstairs in the box with the receipt. We are not big into “fried” foods in our house. This contraption honestly reminds me of the whole “pressure cooker” craze on infomercials a few years back……just one more item to be sold on the garage sale come spring!

    Great story, like a lot of folks I was totally unaware that they had a population. Up until a few years ago, I never realized they had a moose season in North Dakota as well. A buddy of mine showed me a moose he had spotted in a prairie pothole while out scouting during duck season up there, couldn’t believe it! Not something I’d associate North Dakota with.

    Anyone have a tractor, a manure spreader, and a trailer full of hogs to turn loose. Asking for a friend 😆

    I was just up in Ely back in September when I took my sister on her first BWCA trip. We saw the brochures at the International Wolf Center and decided we both gotta do it at some point….we’re not getting any younger, haha. Looks like a lot of fun!

    If you want to test out a really great catfish lake, head up to Storm Lake. We catch them often while walleye fishing, and I have yet to catch a dinky catfish….a few I had trouble getting up out of a 6″ hole 😯 . The best thrill is that the lake is shallow…so often they hit right under your feet. Sometimes they feel like a large walleye..but more often than not I am suprised by the size of the fish when it’s head nears the hole! They generally will hit a deadstick minnow, but I have caught them on Rippin’ Raps, buckshot spoons, etc as well.

    Down here it’s been a nice melting day. The heavy rain really helped wash all the salt and crap off of our sidewalks and drives. Now I’ll probably need my ice cleats in the morning to walk my dog, haha 😆

    There have been a few instances this weekend on the IGL’s …just plan on not going back the same way you went in according to the local bait shops. Myself personally, if I had an expensive brand new truck…It would stay in the parking lot because I really couldn’t afford the cost of recovering it out of the lake, haha 😆

    Going to fish Pleasant Creek thru the ice for the first time ever on Saturday.(Visiting my brother in CR). I’ve heard alot of mixed reviews on it, but wondering if you guys have any pointers? Don’t need any secrets, just where to start. I have all the Lake maps and have researched as much as possible. Mostly will be targeting Walleyes, but wouldn’t mind getting into crappies, perch, or white bass. I am a very experienced fisherman, just not on this lake. Thanks in Advance.

    If you can find them, there are some nice bluegills in there…but we often jokingly call it “The Dead Sea” for a reason. You either really like it there and do well….or you are like me and have fished it off and on for 30 years and have seen boom and bust. I’m hoping the draw down and remodeling they did helps improve things a bit. I haven’t fished there for a couple years…I have found more productive waters in the area (for me). I think if I had a boat and could regularly get out there and explore, I’d find some good spots. Along the dam is a perennial favorite…but it can get crowded.

    I drove by the inlet (Frank Starr) last weekend, there were 30 shacks out there. You might also want to try the backside of Casino point (park by the DNR building in the marina and walk in). I’ve done really well on walleyes there (on Storm Lake in general) over the years…but I’ve also had years where you couldn’t buy a bite out there either. Lots of NICE catfish, oddly most of them I’ve caught while walleye fishing. I’ve been using a #5 rippin rap out there the last couple years and have had some success with those…but the perennial favorite seems to be the minnow/bobber combo, or just dead sticking a minnow. The slot is paying off- I’ve caught more bigger (over 22″) fish out there the last 5 years than I’ve ever had…but we generally just put those back and keep the under 17″ fish for the table. The old 15″ limit was nice we used to catch a lot of nice eaters, but the slot seems to help with the fun factor of catching large fish as well 😉

    in reply to: Walleye Rod #1558091

    When Gander Mountain was open, I bought a couple St. Croix rods, and I don’t think I spent more than $30 on each…not including the reels I put on them. In all honesty any medium action ice rod will do. Most of the walleyes I catch through the ice are on a minnow/bobber setup, and a third on rattle spoons. You might want to check out Scheels- they would have something decent win your price range.

    Pretty sure I saw a similar truck parked on the ice over by Rockwell City at the interstate borrow pit right along highway 20 today? Braver than I would ever be, haha. I’ve seen someone actually drive out on Lake Macbride and Palo (Pleasant Creek) as well during cold snaps like this in the past….with 6-9 inches of ice. I would think that a truck would be too expensive to lose in the water, so my own two feet are a safer bet after freeze up.
