I'm in Brooklyn Park just off 610. I've been known to travel down to Medicine, Harriet and Calhoun (Plymouth and Mpls.), Eagle in Maple Grove, or you could go East to White Bear or Bald Eagle. There's lots of good options within 20 minutes of Champlin. I'm sure others will chime in as well.

I am by Woodland elemenary on Noble. I hae been trying to learn Medicine. Have caught some fish but nothing to filet yet. I like to head up to Chisago and Forest Lake if I get time. Mille Lacs is where my brother and I go. But we need to plan ahead because we both have kids under 6 so the wives like a heads up. I also want to try Fish Lake and Eagle in Maple Grove. Need to spend some time with the maps over the Christmas Holiday.

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
