TUMBLEWEED It seems that a lot of places are starting to have more an more cases of Cougars showing up where they shouldn't be. I NW North Dakota they have increased every year. CAJ

Unless your friend lives in Wyoming and shot these pictures in 2001 or 2002, I call this story a bunch of B$.

Unless these photo,s are exactly the same, they were shot as mentioned above in Wyoming in 2001 or 2002 from the search I did.

Those are the exact same pics from the 2002 Wy. pics. These same photos have been claimed to be from approx 5 other states.

Pics were taken in Lander, Wy. by Dr Dave Rogers.

TUMBLEWEED,

I'm sorry if my post came off as appearing as a "I Told You So" kind of post.

I agree that a cat that size looking in my window would scare the ever-living-you-know-what outta me.

A lot of these posts that we see photos of wildlife in out of the ordinary settings are circulated through the web as being from a family member or the house next door. No offense to you.

LEP7mm, no biggie. Another case of all these pics floating around in cyber-space I guess.I can't even begin to imagine being

that close, to a know doubt hungry cat! I have seen one

in the wild in my lifetime, and it does kinda make you feel

very small and weak.

Yup, not from MN at all. KQRS also thought they were from Ham Lake.

Hey did you see the pictures of this same cat in Big Lake? Pictures look identical - wow this cat gets around.

I really like the first picture. I am in no way a cat lover, however I think that big cats are really cool. I would be glad that those reflective eyes were through a sliding glass door instead of a straight on headlamp shot.

When I got those pictures a couple years ago, the caption said western South Dakota, somewhere near Rapid City. Some stories take on a life of their own. Still, great pictures.

We were sent these same pictures a while ago stateing they were from Wisc., near our cabin. Some friends were kidding my wife about being afraid. She said "No, Don will just have to kill it so we can have it stuffed!"

Gotta love a wife with that kind of attitude huh?

      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).  
    • Sushilicious
      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.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      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.
