so, while i was up at the cabin i tried just fishing off the dock a few times. nuttin. tuesday nite  i walked down to the dock and i finally noticed what appeared to be small fish hitting the top maybe chasing bugs. i had already loaded my fishing stuff in the car and had no desire to possibly clean fish so i decided another day. so the migration to shallow waters might start soon.

i walked down to the little lake behind us. seen a couple loons across the lake frolicking like love sic teenagers, or reb and the NL!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: along the shoreline i could see 2 trumpeter swans sitting there motionless, almost like they were protecting a nest. :scratch: :scratch: pretty fun to watch!!!!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

There was bunch of minnows at the mouth of the channel by the little bridge by us Tuesday when I was down there, 51* surface temps too. A couple days of decent weather & I would think they'd be using it. Pretty shallow & very clear water so they'd be pretty spooky. Seen a couple different colored ducks, black & white body with a orangish brown head chasin a female around out in front of our place this am too.

I was hoping some of them would nest in one of my wood duck boxes.

I see why, pretty  :cool: lookin birds for a duck. EZ to tell when 1 takes off flyin with that different sound they make. I think the new neighbor, actually the oldest son of the previous couple, put up a wood duck house down by their dock. Him & his boy like to hunt ducks.

Bet there was 60 rigs there already as they were parked everywhere but on the blacktop. :crazy: Tim over at the store had just finished getting more bait when we got there. He said he talked to a few & a lot of 'em had their limit in an hour, 1 even told him 20 minutes. They were all like your  :fish2: though...............................small. ;) :smiley:

Yea but unless you have a 12 or 14 ft boat you can throw in the back of a truck you ain't getting on. And after July last year that didn't work either the water was that low.

That's OK as I've usually got all the water I need just down the steps. We don't usually fish anywhere else very often anyway. URL once in a while or Winnie/Cutfoot at The Gap in the fall is about it.

if you happen to go on a road trip or a tour go check it out someday. its up 29 from our place a mile or so. before you take the corner there is a road to the right, down that.

i happen to be going to grand rapids tomorrow to get signatures on a new agreement, then Duluth. i happen to drive right past he DNR office so i will be stopping in and personally talking to them, if they even know.

i'm sure with my charming personality they'll get right on it!!!!!!!!! :happy1: :happy1: :smoking: :smoking:

:scratch: :doah: :rolleyes: :laugh: :happy1: When I looked(dnr lakefinder) the other day I thought it was just east of you on 4 but now I see it's not, but just north of you. Checked the the 10 day for up there & it looks like it's finally going to warm up with most of the daytime highs in the 70's for the next couple weeks. :happy1: That should help get the bite going. :smiley: Bet it's gonna be a good year for skeets too! :sad:
