Favorite Lake

Sak has always been the lake I enjoy  the most and Smallmouth are my favorite target on the lake although I like walleye as much as anyone. When the lake is high and healthy it's tthe best lake in the state for bass in quanity and quality IMHO. After 1 year of not wetting a line due to dealing with my flooded  house from  the  flood on the souris, I couldn't take it anymore and went out for a few hours Saturday. Well worth the wait and good to see really healthy fish from 12" to over 19". All caught and realesed. No walleye caught although I donated two cranks to northerns.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

Ice fishermen are simple creatures, they just need a hole and their pole

At first used 3 inch tube jigs and 3 inch twiisters but switched to # 7 shad raps, fat raps, flicker shads and #5 salmo hornets. Bigger fish wanted the cranks banging off rocks.  Water temp was 53-56, and they were 1 to 4 ft deep. Seems once temp is in the low 60's I do much better on soft plastics verses a crankbait..

 Looking good neighbor!  Sam's fish count here on Detroit lakes is up over 80 now.  All fish caught off of the docks.

What we do in life echoes for eternity.   Shadows and dust.
