Searching for marble eyes...

3 posts in this topic

I'm heading up the the Delano area this weekend and since the girlfriend has to work I'm going out fishing with her brother. He's a pretty experienced fisherman but hasn't been able to land any 'eyes this season. Of course, neither have I. I just want to match my total from last year's ice: 1. I know it's pretty sad, but I was hoping to get some tips of where (if anywhere!) there might be some 'eyes. We hit some of the lakes up around Wright county last weekend, only a few very small crappies, nothing on Waconia, one on Whaletail and a few on Dog. Should we goto Minnetonka? Wayzeta? Any advice would be appreciated, if you don't want to post: jwhawkridge @ gmail . com Thanks guys!!! By the way, the crappies have been biting decent around Mankato, and they've mostly been big, 10 inches +!!!

Since waconia isnt really doing much this year, from delano I would head to Buffalo if I was searching for eye's. Its a good walleye lake and shouldnt be too hard to get on an eye spot if you ask at the bait shop or maybe even on here.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
