I have to get out and check out the upper Cannon River. The lakes along the river shoud have a good bite going if it's up a foot or two.

You must be reading my mind or vice-versa. I'll never forget that advice you gave me about a year ago.

Glad you got some rain. Most lakes were needing it bad. I would guess that you will get some more.

I've been hitting the inflows and haven't had any luck yet only carp as far as I've seen but I bet the fish will start hitting anytime now

The area lakes could have used the low water for another year or to so the lakes could rejuvinate themselves. I understand peoples complaints with access not being high enough, but the lakes have not even come close to any low water cycle "bottom" yet. With the water clarity issues around Mankato the lakes need signifacant drawdowns to settle mud and regrow weeds that are important to the lakes. If the lakes could go down another 1-3 feet for a year or two it wood knock down the curly leaf pond weed that has a strangle hold on our area lakes. With the pond weed down the other weeds would have a chance to take hold again. For my 2 cents worth. The Lake Washington association is destroying the lake with there every year spraying of the lake. No weeds and the lake is the muddiest I have ever seen it in my life. No weeds to break up the wave action and boat wake action.

You make some excellent points. I like the way you think.

I just hope that the tetonka lake association looks what happened to washington before they keep spray here. I was on washington last week, we had a hard time finding a weed bed of any kind. Someone is not telling all they know about the week killer they are using. mad.gif

I agree ken, since they started spraying on Washington its hard to find weeds like there use to be.

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
