Default Official Walleye Central Trip Countdown Thread

Happy New Year! Time to start the Official Countdown Thread! It's 33 below in central Illinois. Time to think about this year's trip. In 187 days we head for northern Minnesota for our first leg of the trip to Red Wing Lodge on LOW Breezy Point Frank and Christi will have dinner ready for us, the next morning we head North to LOW for a week of fishing!

Default Follow-Up

Greetings,

Most years, my desire to fish hits a low during hunting seasons and the Holidays. The "itch" to resume fishing typically returns shortly after the Holidays are over. So, thanks for starting the official "count down" thread for 2018. I'm itching all over!

I will be leaving with a group of friends in about seventy two days for trip number one - lake trout fishing through the ice on Thunder Bay. My next trip is in about one hundred and twenty days - pike fishing near Red Lake just after ice-out.

The wife and I have several trips scheduled in NW Ontario for walleyes about every thirty days or so after the post ice-out trip.

Good fishing and tight lines!!

Since this is the “Official” trip countdown thread we have 240 days until we leave for Melchett Lake with Boreal Forest Outfitters. Thanks to Onetimedave for a wealth of info on Melchett!

Default Excel count down formula

In cell A1 paste the following =+TODAY()
in cell B1 enter your departure date 7/12/2018
in cell c1 paste the following =+DATEDIF(A1,B1,"D")

Save the sheet then each day you can open it and it will display how many days until you leave.

Good idea. You can also download a free app like Dreamdays and add the info and everytime you open the app it shows the countdown in days or months and days. See photos

161 and 190 respectively for me.

Our lodge gives their business card with your arrival and departure dates, deposit info, etc, on the back. When I'm having a bad day, I take those cards out and turn them over...makes me smile just thinkin' about it!!!

6 days for a lake trout trip to my favorite lake 40 miles north of I-Falls. Been 40 below up there for the past week. Luckily we will be having a warming trend, but it will be still cold.

Default One less week!

Down to 24 weeks to go now! Passports in good order! Warm front has melted the recent snow. Up North looks like a while before open water.
Anybody flying with Hidden Bay Lodge this season?
