What a great fishing trip! This podcast will be somewhat a audio blog or journal. Joel Nelson and I cut across the state of Minnesota, fishing for a multitude of species.

Thanks a ton Brandon, Jonny and Frank for the time you shared with us. Great time!

Some phots from the trip!

Good ones, boys. I believe Frank is actually not working Superior, but is working at crumpling a beverage can. Well, that's work, too, after a fashion. grin.gif

Man what a trip, maybe you could open this up as a grad credit class for teachers? I don't need the credits, but I would gladly sign up for this trip as a graduate level class. In fact I could probably get 8-10 teachers to sign up for it..............

STF:

Actually, I'm doing my best to look cool while driving, without messing up the board lines. Frank is cracking his knuckles to prepare for the tedious untangling job he was about to perform.

Seriously though, you folks in this forum have a truly knowledgeable outdoorsman at your disposal. Deitz and I learned a great deal from fishing and talking with Frank.

We had a number of releases we just didn't hook up on, and we lost a good fish. From the sounds of the radio traffic, we were doing better than everyone we heard from, thanks in no small part to Frank and his friend Lonnie's experience on the big pond.

Thanks for the great time!

Joel

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Mayflies were just getting started on the west end of the lake last weekend.

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!
