Strange Season Alright

7 posts in this topic

It's been an unusual season on "The Trail" this year as far as Walleye fishing goes. Last night was the topper. I was jigging with big minnows in about 30fow when I hooked a nice fat little 6# Lake Trout. It was too close to dark to change from jigs to rattle spoons but I got several more "hits" in the same hole. It's a safe bet that I'll have a rig ready to go for Lakers tonight. Also her lower left fin had been clipped (stocked) and she had spawn in her. Maybe I'll hook a Catfish tonight. wink.gif

Or perhaps a match to that big northern you got this spring? But it would be 5lb. heavier now.

Are you fishing on Sag?

No, one of the mid-trail lakes.

My two oddities on Northern Light Lake (Ontario) this past summer were early in July a 4lb Whitefish on a jig in about 10 - 15 FOW and last week a 3lb Northern on the bottom in 98 FOW while trolling for trout.

Go North

A northern in 98fow is definitely strange. He must have been lost.

How about several lakers caught in 6' of water on a bare hook and leech? That happened to me in July a few years back up in Dogtooth.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
