the funny part is the bite shut off a week ago, but then again I watched a guy last weekend keeping crappies under 7". Someday the DNR will wake up and put a minium slot on all fish state wide. confused.gif

amen to that there should be a state wide slot limit on all fish species. Seen alot of small crappies and walleye kept out there. The famous saying is (if you keep enough the meat adds up) true but alot quicker if the fish are 3 inches longer.

crappies were the second bite. The eyes were hot early. Now there is to much action out there for any fish to bite.

It was long last year that people flocked to this year it will be Diamond. What a shame the fishing was just getting good the last couple of years. They'll fish it out now. frown.gif

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
