Cabin Fever

As I sit here and watch it blizzard out it has me thinking about summer and fall. Cabin fever has set in a big way. Although the perch bite in South Dakota has still been great, the game fish season here in MN has closed for another season. With our lack of ice until late December in much of MN it was a short ice season but a very good one. The bite on Lake Mille Lacs showed signs of being on a major up turn. The walleye seem to be recovering nicely and there are lots of small walleyes(11-14") to be caught.

The bite in South Dakota has been good if you are willing to work for the perch, walleye, and crappies. This next week I will be headed to Winnipeg for my annual giant gravel lizard trip, and if ice allows I may try to run back for another outing prior to ice out.

In the mean time, here is a quick elk teaser for all of you that are looking to skip right to September. Soon enough we will be chasing gobblers, smallmouth, and other summer fun.
