Great report.

Leonard I would guess? He can't hear very well anymore, but he is one heck of a good guy and a great fisherman. A person could learn a lot just following him around.

I found out last week I work with Mr. Leonard in Hawley. smile.gif I learned a lot about fishing just talking to him for 15 minutes out in the shop - a great guy! I live a mile from Big C and am trying to figure out the lake. I'm hoping he can help. Winter patterns are a cinch smirk.gif; but summer is confusing the heck out of me confused.gif.

I can go to Mille Lacs and put 50 pounds in the boat in one evening but can't catch 5 pounds on my local lake. That makes me look pretty pathetic. frown.gif

Your correct---Leonard, his dad and I used to fish together years ago, mostly on Big C, and then there were the hay days on Strawberry Lake...he is a Great Stick!

Tad --

Keep talking to LB -- he has a TON of info in his head. Just talk loudly or just listen.

I have to tell you a funny story about Leonard. I used to work with him too and on Fridays he used to like to make a run to Fargo for parts or whatever and stop at the Northern for lunch (I hear the buffet is great) anyway, this one gal got mad at him because instead of giving her a dollar bill ol Leonard gave her four quarters. I laughed my $&@ off when he told me that, but the kicker was that when she told him that she wouldn't accept the quarters, he said to her "what?? It's a buck isn't it??"

Can't you just see him in there taking four quarters out of that little plastic coin purse that he carries in his pocket. Leonard is quite a guy, they threw away the mold when he was born.

A couple of buddies hit Big C yesterday and they did not land a fish. One buddy said he broke a couple of lines and had some hits, but that was about it.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
