Attempted that this morning, with nothing to show for it. Good luck finding shiners, they are in very short supply everywhere due to some kind of kill off up north, and with the VHS thing, importing them is not an option for the baitshops. We only got one flag and missed it, we are going to try a different area tomorrow am.

Silver Creek, and Lake Zumbro are your options in this area. Silver Lake, and the zum river below also has a few. The backwaters of the Miss are another good option

I don't know if this will help you out or not, but if you drive down to Austin, MN; find Ramsey Dam and fish there. I pulled out a nice 25 inch nothern there last summer shortly before getting deployed. Take you there are also plent of Small Mouth Bass and panfish at the same spot, but my buddy does alot of local northern fishing there. If the fishing sucks there, you can always do some Walleye fishing in ALbert Lea.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
