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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
