Minnesota is the no fun state if it would make your outing more fun, just figgure there is a law against it. The answer is NO. The only gray area is can you have the remote switch in the decoy and not have the remote in your possetion. The benefit here is you can set the switch to run in bursts on its own so it isn't running non stop. I have asked numerouse conservation O. about this and each one says it's an interpritation of the law and is up to your local warden. ??? WHAT??? Again no fun state.

All you will need to buy is another switch and a long length of wire(the double speaker wires, black in color). Just unhook the wires from switch on the decoy and connect them to the hard wires and them to the other switch. You can also buy the same connectors as the decoy for a more professional job.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
