carpmaster, I can give you info about what has worked for me in the past, but I know nothing about the area you live so take it for what it's worth. We use to spot fox from the truck while driving around on mostly flat terrain in western MN, this was 10+ years ago. We would just concentrate on the most likely areas for our spotting...optics are an essential. Looking for them laying up in windrows or on the sunny sides of big snow drifts sunning themseoves in the middle of the day. Once located, usually at ranges from 400-1000+ yards away, we would get to the downwind side with the truck if possible and start stalking to within range. Getting as close as you think you could and then calling to get them up. Our success rate with this method was actually very good. Many times there would be other fox that we originally didn't see that would also come to the call. That was it. You might think about snowshoes if you try this...it was a workout! There is also blind calling you could try as well but with the decline in fox population and the great increase in coyotes, you are probably more likely to call in yotes than fox! Best of luck to you!

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
