      Wbl Lost Kayak Seat
      My neighbor was at Matoska Launch recently and left his kayak seat there by accident. It is a Hobie seat and he would be ecstatic if he could get it back. Apparently, it is designed specifically for his kayak. If anyone has heard of a found kayak seat please let me know!  Thanks so much, Dan

      St. Croix River Fishing Reports
      Went out with the dog tonight for a few hours. Two nice keepers and a couple of shorts. Water is down about a foot from last weekend.

      Thanks for the info. Just got back from up there. We ended up with nothing but we saw 7 large sturgeon surface with in 20 yards of the boat but never got one to hook up. Picked up one 8 inch pout. Fished out of wheelers landing and moved all over. But still fun day fishing with the old man can't get much better.

      Kayak time
      I think I have 3 pounds on front and 3 on the back, side actually about even with me.  sun dolphin journey 12 SS from walmart.  I put pics somewhere on here. will try and find them. Fun today. started out with huntfish in his boat and then went to the yak after lunch. ome of the crappies were crazy black. Crazy when a big old hen turkey flew right over our heads !!  lol  Johns pup Jane decided to give a kiss to a crappie. Fun getting another 12 incher to the yak.   found the pics.  the back anchor goes over the other side about even with my back. I put a metal rope loop there also so it stays where I put it. seems like I learn something every time out... lol   I dont use the bottle anchor anymore.... too slippery and too light.  getting an anchor with spikes to use while in the river current .

      Red River Fishing Reports
      Many very nice cats being caught all up and down the Red River for the past several weeks with several over 20 lbs. caught.  Fish shallow near snags or at the mouths of incoming rivers and creeks and you'll have a lot of action.  Suckers are all you'll need for bait.  Use big suckers and fish them whole.

      Coon Lake
      Went out on Tuesday, quite windy. Water temps 54.2 to 57.6 cooler than week ago Saturday. Moved into one of the channels found small Blue Gills and Crappie  in 7-9" range. Slow all afternoon everything we found was in shallow water. Water temp needs to come up a bit more. Fishermen don't really lie, they just have long arms to make the Gills look bigger. Typical Crappie of the day.

      Campsites
      I just received an call saying Sexton Island site will not be reservable from April through August because of the eagles nesting on the island again.  Luckily I was able to get N18 McManus Island West reserved for the same week in July.  This looks like a nice site.  Does anyone have any experience with this site and fishing around it in July?

      Metro Area Minnesota Fishing Reports by Matt Johnson
      Things are changing slightly from this weekend. I'm starting to see a lot of fish (crappies) moving onto main lake structure. The spawn is happening on many lakes and the "bedding" is happening. That warm weather really jump started things. Large main lake points and areas with weed stalks are housing fish. They moved up onto these pieces of structure and the chrome-colored crappies are finding their place! Shallow channels are kicking out more fish and it seems like more movement is definitely happening. The main lake fish are getting a lot of my attention as they continue to seem larger and more aggressive. Some of the fish in the back channels need a little coaxing, while the fish on the main lake structure are crushing the presentation... which makes things a lot easier on these windy days! We even deployed a panfish Carolina rig yesterday to keep the bait in the strike zone as the wind blew small white caps! Fun way to fish though if you haven't tried it! Depths we found consistent fish at where 4-6 feet, especially on top of the main lake structure. Seemed like the bigger fish held closer to the deep edge but still in those 4-6 foot ranges. If you got too far on top of the structure you caught smaller fish and bluegills. The bigger crappies wanted that edge area. We threw Mister Twister Tri-colored tails at them with 1/16oz jigs or else the Carolina rig for panfish (which consisted of a smaller egg weight and a lightweight hook with a twister tail or minnow bait). Float fishing worked too, but make sure you use the correct weight for the wind, otherwise the bait is not in the strike zone and you're wasting time. Here's a good one from yesterday...

      Kayak time
      Making me jealous!!! Kayak is out in the shed ready to go just got to find some time to get out there!  If anyone could post a pic of there setup that would be awesome looking to do some more mods to the yak and having a hard time coming up with ideas! I've got a 10 foot yak and have had  a 1.5 pound folding anchor works fine when there a "light" wind but does not hold at all when its over 10mph looking at upgrading do you guys think 3 pound anchor would be better for the "bigger" lakes in MN?
