A friend of mine went to the Minnesota river today. Two small Walleyes and a Flathead. On ring worms.

OK guys heres the scoop on the river out of Red Wing up by the (Contact Us Please). Adam and I picked up bait around 8 am, we made the (Contact Us Please), found an open spot and were fishing by 9 am. We didnt do well to start out, basically just tried to figure out what they wanted. After about 2 hours, we moved about 30 feet and started catching fish. At one point Adam caught 3 fish in 3 casts!!! All in all we got around 20 walleyes and saugers, the biggest being a 22.5 inch sauger. all caught on a 3/8 ounce jig with either hair or a hair gub on it with a fathead, in 12 to 17 feet of water. It seems we caught 3 or 4 times as many saugers as walleyes. colors seem to be less important then just letting the jig settle to the bottom and dragging it and twiching it from time to time. They are biting and biting well once you find the pattern. I would like to thank Adam for the company also he's a great guy and I had a blast catching fish with him!!! ....... Todd grin.gif

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
