Well since Steve is always too busy to take chunky fishing grin.gif, I had to pick up another boat. Hopefully I'll have her on Bside by next weekend. 1959 Alumacraft Queen Mary 19 footer. Yamaha 115 on her tail. Believe me, you'll know it's me when you see it. See ya on the water. Hope all is well with all you guys!

Cisco Kid II ! I already ordered the graphics grin.gif . The original Cisco Kid is sitting in a haybarn in Embarass. The guys going to gut her and make her a center console. That is after he removes the 1000 lbs of wet floatation foam tongue.gif . I'll post some pictures of her when she's ship shape and ready to troll.

Just spent a week on Burntside, first time ever on the lake. You guys are lucky to have that in your back yard. Hard lake to fish for first timer, seems like the wind had to be blowing pretty hard to get any bites. Didn't get many fish, but all were nice size.

I was out of town all of July 4th week and somehow this post slipped by me. Chunkster, no time to take you fishing also means no time to take MYSELF fishing. mad.gif

Guess I've gotta give chunky his downriggers back now and get a set of my own. Darn.

Not only is it alive, but it's got a REALLY big inland laker boat. And one unique enough so he can't fade into the background. grin.gif

Congrats on the boat Mike!

Is it the big platform boat sitting at Trader Jacks?

You mean Trader Craig's, Frank? On the east edge of town in the same building as Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters?

If I recall, the boat you're talking about is fiberglass, which wouldn't be Chunkster's aluminum one. Or maybe I'm just assuming that Alumacraft didn't make fiberglass boats, because of the Alumacraft name. But I haven't actually SEEN it yet, because the hermit hasn't come over to SHOW it to me.

I'm not even sure if it's real. I mean, what does a 1959 Alumacraft Dairy Queen 19 footer look like? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Trader something in Ely. I reread Chunky's post and it isn't the same boat. I know a guy in Ely that knows where Chunky lives and he even has a camera, maybe he'll go take a picture.

Sheesh BooBoo, who's the guy in the trenchcoat in front my house with the camera? The Queen is up at the studio getting some cosmetic work done. You'll see her soon enough.

Not really believing the masses about said boat, I snuck over to chunkytown without my camera to sniff around. So, no camera means no pics. Sorry. Not being a journalist anymore, I felt freed up from the ball and chain of providing visuals to go with the news. grin.gif

There is in fact a boat there. It's pretty big, and pretty wide, and pretty silver, and pretty near done being turned into a most waterworthy Cisco Kid II. She'll even do justice to the Big Lake when her time is right.

Man, that thick aluminum sure wears a long time.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!
