|Gas Prices This Week|
|Incredible Blooming Apple Trees|
So why am I talking about gas prices and apple trees? The sad truth is the boat hasn't even been in the water yet. With Leech covered with ice and the weekend filled with yard work, rain, and a trip to Osseo, WI to see my niece's daughter's dance recital, what can I say? Reports on Mille Lacs have been spotty as the ice went out on both Leech and Mille Lacs on May 16th, the latest for Mille Lacs ever. I suspect that it will take a few weeks to get the lake going however I did hear that Leech has been putting out fish. Saturday is my day to help a friend, Bill Lundeen. His only daughter graduates from college on Saturday and he needs my help to run the bait shop for about 6 hours. I have done this before yet the Saturday before Memorial Day is probably going to test my resolve. Either way it will be fun as I am pretty good at doing this and it will be good for Bill and Kathy to celebrate another milestone in their lives. If you are driving by Lundeen's Tackle Castle on Saturday between 11:00 and 4:00 stop by and say hi. I'm betting I can increase his sales by 20% so I'll need all the help I can get. I might bring the boat up and fish the evening bite or simply head over to my friend Mark's place and jump in his boat for an evening of bobber fishing. Of course there's always Monday!

|Potatoes are Planted!|
One last note, although the late spring is causing a number of issues, the good news is that it's stopped virtually all netting on Lake Mille Lacs. Although I try not to be too political here, this is a good thing as the Minnesota DNR and the Native American tribes from Minnesota and Wisconsin have really screwed up my favorite lake, Mille Lacs. One day you might just open up to a diatribe of personal thoughts yet it's time to fish so keep those minnows dunked and your lines tight!
