Okiedoke...here's the unabashed biased version....

So I wake up at 12:30 a.m. go back to bed...up at 1:30 can't sleep with URL on the brain.
Get up talk to repoman for 2 hours and T.I.H.1&3 show up at 4 bells.Runnin a bit late with the crappy snowy roads.
3.5 hours later we hit URL....1 hour longer because of the crappy snowy roads.

We met up with Cookie at Aggaziz on URL. He takes us out 4 miles and plows us a lane to put the wheelhouse.
Sweet no shoveling to get level.

So we set the house and bank her in.
Fire up the heat and punch the holes.
It was 13 fow and we caught fish soon after gearing up the rattle wheels and our rods.
T.I.H.3 get's on the board quick and so did T.I.H.1
Now I know why mike does not smile...he freakin goes chinese.
Here's some video of Mike.

Yours truely was scrambling to just get on the board.
We did have a buck on the biggest for each day.
Here's a 19 that won me day 1's money fish.
I went to a plain red hook and started drilling fish.
I lost one tagged 2 more for the bucket and through 2 back while M&M watched me hog the fishing action.

A bit earlier I girlscouted a big pike for Mike.
Go to the official unofficial girlscout thread to see the 6.5 minute video.
I think it say's it all.....DOH!

Here's the last video of the day.We bagged it at around 8 p.m. shot and ready for sleep.

We rose about 7 bells.
I took out Buck and met Cookie outside as he checked in on us.
I gave him the play by play and we shook hands on his way out.
I reccomend anyone wanting to get a sleeper or get a guide or just good info to contact him.

M&M tagged a eye a piece for the bucket and thing ground to a halt.
T.I.H. clipped me for the buck on the second day with a 14 incher.... :roll:

Here's Buck doing his best imitation of I'm a good boy.

We tossed a few back that were too small and a few back that were too big and we all lost some really nices one at the hole that would have had to go back anyway.
It was a fun trip and for anyone wanting to get into some eyes or a Pike to mount...give cookie a call or email him .

We do it all of the time.
Either in a wheelhouse or a permenant.
Got heat why not?
It's great to wake up and grab a rod.I'm fishing before the coffee is done.

It's really tough when you have to set down your fork to set on a walleye at breakfeast.
That tell tale tinkle tinkle from a bell in the rattle wheel waking you up at midnight saying set the hook!
