  1. Past hour
  2. Cold morning
  3. Today
  4. Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
  5. Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?
  6. I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout. 16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet. Looking forward to it!
  7. Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
  8. I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort. I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!
  9. Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay. Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.
  10. nice work! i fish from my kayak as well and it is always fun to hook one of those monsters
  11. might have to give that a go..............me likes pickled nords!!!!!!!!!!
  12. The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
  13. I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
  14. I hope to be out early next week. Weather and river level depending. Will post a report if I make it out. Boat all ready to go.
  15. I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.
  16. Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text. The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. ) That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable, to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
  17. I used to wait for the sucker run every spring up North in the Tower area. We speared and fished for them for a week or so for smoking and canning. Actually great tasting fish! Kind of bony but otherwise quite good. Also good fried too! The run is just starting here now. Spearing season starts May 1st. Cliff
  18. Buddy of mine fishes the one north of Richmond a lot. Lots of smaller norts, You'd like them for the pickle jar Glenn.
  19. We used to do this when we were young and the only thing chasing us was the game wardens.
  20. A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning. Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning. Strange. About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind. They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE. Now all is quite and cold. Giving them till 10 then off to work.
  21. Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.
  22. I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing. Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one. Good luck n be safe out there.
  23. Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday. Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers. Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
  24. yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...
  25. We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
