I was out yesterday, Not in front of BJ's though. Farther to the left down by the black hole access. No fish to speak of there. We then went to the deep water and found fish but they were pretty small. You'll have to reel them up pretty slow if you're not planning to keep them.

I've been fishing out by the black hole for a couple weeks now. It is real spotty as far as fishing. 1- 25" walleye one night. 1- 18 and 2 under twelve another. I have been picking up some northerns in really deep water 8lb in 51 ft, 2 ft off the bottom and a few more in 38 feet on the bottom. 1 crappie so far about 6" I have been seeing them down there suspended off the bottom but nothing will bite. I am going to go out again this weekend maybe I will have some better luck.

those tight lipped critters!... ya know what never fails me on the finikey-ist of fish, a small hook with a waxy covering it, and a tiny split shot an inch above the hook. Just enough weight to sink it, but the Entire idea is to sink it REAL slow. Helps when there is not much of a jig for them to take too. It takes 60-90 seconds to get down 20 ft. but they tend to hit it with out hesitation. It just gets to be too damn frustrating when it stops sinking half way down, and ya don't know why. Too much weight kills the idea though, and a vex doesn't pick up the hook usualy, so a weight near the hook can be esential. I believe it is a MUST to have an extreamly sinsive rod or spring bobber tip, and use 1 or 2 lb. line. I hate not having success, so I have tried it all. I have even used the little red plastic tails by Techniglo on a hook, and it worked both with, and without a waxy. Yeah, no bait and it worked! SUPER SLOW DROP, and SMALL, SMALL, SMALL. It takes an avid guy to do all that though. Good luck.

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.
