Tips?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I don't get out much with work being hectic, and the last few times out have been very slow, if not unproductive at all. Was curious if anyone has had any luck in the Mankato Area? I'm not looking for your hot spots, just an idea on which lakes they still may be biting (panfish). I'm heading out tomorrow evening and just looking for a quick point in the right direction. Thanks all!!

Try Duck Lake. Not the biggest ones coming out of there, but they will keep you busy.

I have to second Duck Lake, not much for size but the bite has always been there when I have been. Jigging with a shrimpo or a small silver and red pimple tipped with waxies or gulp has produced everytime, best of luck!

Haha, I appreciate the info! The last few times out have been to Duck and has been a real success- hardest part is keeping at least 1 line down when schools are moving through (both lines have a bite at the same time- a guy can lose his rod that way!)

I was out there a couple of weeks ago and caught a couple of nice pike.

Anyone heard anything about Crystal? I guess that's where we may be heading (If you'd rather e-mail me as to not ruin a good thing going, I promise not to forward anything that I don't find out myself... doughnut@hickorytech.net)

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
