|Mille Lacs Ice, as far as one can see!|
|They just can't leave them alone!|
Mark Applen and I are already planning the annual "go somewhere and ice fish" trip that happens between Christmas and New Years. With the success we experienced at Upper Red Lake, it's on the top of the list for this year. Last year's trip was hampered by late ice as we were one of the first houses out to the offshore hump a number of miles from shore. I think this contributed to our fantastic fishing we had however this year with the early cold weather, I'm sure the fish patterns will be well established before we get there. The nice thing about fishing Upper Red Lake is if in fact the fishing isn't that good you are only an hour from Lake of the Woods or Winnibigoshish, which can also be fabulous fishing. I am in San Antonio next week and hope to have something written by the time I leave. The Packers play on Thanksgiving and let's hope they do better than their performance against the Vikings last Sunday, it was pretty pitiful from a Cheesehead's perspective. Have a great Thanksgiving and if your ice fishing, be safe as that water is pretty cold.
