Still lots of ice in Sask. It's melting fast though so it won't be long.

Been a while since I've been on this site...now I'm all moved in to my new place and life is getting back to sorted out, so I figured I'd come toss up a couple more NSR pics from the past couple weeks :)

Haven't been out yet but I'm chompin at the bit to go. Been reading all the Backroads Map books I have and committing the fishing regs to memory for all the different lakes I want to try. Probably spent more money than I should have to outfit my wife and I for walleye fishing but I think we've got what we need to catch em.

Geezle, keep posting those walleye pics, it gives me something to look forward to waiting for the lakes to open up. I'm ready to go load the boat on the Jeep.

I have been out to Bullshead once and a couple of the small trout ponds around the Lethbridge area. I have hooked into a pretty good number of fish already this season.

I am dumping my boat in a lake tomorrow to go hunt for some eyes and will probably spend the whole weekend out there hunting down prespawn sows.

It is going to be a pricey weekend but well worth it. My boat hasn't seen water since opening weekend last year due to a broken fly wheel and no funds to fix it.

Not a bad evening down at the river yesterday...managed to get in to a few walleye, with a sauger and a pike thrown in for variety.  Got to hang out with Josh Gelinas from the forum too  8)

Bwahahaha!  Guiding on the NSR is definitely an entertaining though, but I don't think it's really my style...making a job out of fishing would take some of the fun out of it for me.  Besides, my catch rate isn't all that super-spectacular, I just put in a lot of time when I can :)
