Muskybug-

I hear you. I was on Potato on Saturday and got cold enough to feel like vomiting.

Just wanted give you an FYI on the muskie rule change, check out the post in the muskie forum. An attachment to that approval is a change allowing anglers to harvest trout in Blue Lake during the winter season which starts mid January.

You should be on holiday break pretty soon, eh?

NOt good. Two pike and blew two other fish. That's it. One of the fish I lost was a big one, but I presume another pike. We contemplated taking the boat over to Leech on Saturday for some muskies, but I think we're going to hit the ice instead.

thanks for the update on blue. I was wondering when the rule change would finally go through. I'll ask Doug about it on Monday when I call him.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
