Heard from a relative this week who lives down here & he usually goes up to Nodaks the last weekend of walleye season. He wanted to know if I knew of any places they could go as Nodaks has been closed all winter. He had looked at LOW but said they were almost double what they usually paid. Gave him a few places to check out.

Yup, just looked again. Not much change since Saturday IMO.  I noticed all the footprints on their ramp 1st then but the shoreline was like that too.

I was in that area today.  When I went by Ball Club I could see ONE group of people fishing on the NE side.  They were on sleds.  Few out on Winnie and a few in those back in the woods lakes.   NOTHING compared to what it would be like normal this time of the year.  The river by Ball Club was already opening up and dang is it high.

Yes, Big Ball Club.  I have not been by GDP or the damn.   Based on how much water is on the river going under the high way I would say there is some serious current coming out of the lake.   Or are you looking for above the dam ?

No, I haven't heard anything to that effect glenn. Wouldn't be totally shocked to hear there's somethin to it though as it not real deep. I believe 30-35' is the deepest, isn't it? :scratch: Not sure how much current runs through it either, going out to Sand I'd think would be OK but the feeders comin in on the SE aren't very big, are they? :confused:

None of the resorts are saying anything on there facebook pages but even if it was true I'm sure they would not admit it. It's really hard to believe but I guess anything is possible. Heading up next week so I will do my investigating work.   :happy1:

so I left for rapids this morning early enough the plan on going to check out the cabin. on my way up I noticed only 1 fishhouse on serpant lake in Crosby. there where about 1o out on rabbit, but not as many as the last time through. between outing and remer I seen 10 deer out in a swamp wondering around. I seen some in the same swamp last time up, but not sure why there in there, I cant imagine food, but they didn't seem to be in deep snow.

well got to the cabin road and I expected to see the same crap. but WOOZER was I surprised. that big bank was gone. I drove the car all the way into the cabin. someone did one bang up job plowing out all the way to the cabin, they also plowed down to the neighbors place. but holy Hannah are there snowbanks..

now the odd part, I don't know if I should care or be pissed. someone was at the cabin after he plowed out. so I was with my mom and brother all day yesterday. I intentionally brought the cabin up a few times and was basically ignored. expect my stepdad asked if I was going over there.  I said maybe??? and left it.

so how do I know someone was there????? glad you asked!!!! :rotflmao: :rotflmao: there was a path shoveled to the outhouse, the deck to the cabin door was shoveled off and 2 shovels where stuck in the snow. when i left there was 1 on the deck. the curtains in the cabin where left open, orders are to shut them. a path was shoveled to the outhouse, the bank was shoveled to get a 4 wheeler outta the shed and they shoveled a path to get to the lake...…and wheeler tracks out on the lake.

so i went over and talked to the new guy on the block. nice kid. found out he had temporarily piled that snow there and after he had time plowed us out. we had a great talk, said he hasnt been on the lake all winter because of the conditions. we  :bs: more. he belongs to the 49ers union and is around all winter but gone most of the summer. told me if i needed anything to let him know. so we will be trading contact info soon!!!!!!!
