Been a few weeks...how thick is the ice on Fosters? Can I get two holes drilled with a hand auger before I lose conciousness? ha ha ha

I wouldn't think it would be that bad.

Is there still any trout left out there? My cousin lives near by and wants me to take him fishing this weekend. So I am heading down from the cities to fish somewhere in Rochester, we may end up fishing a few lakes this weekend.

There's always a few trout in Fosters. Hitting it prime-time will help your chances.

Is there a consistent prime time? Morning?

Morning seems to be the best but once you pattern the trout all day is prime time. Plus where getting close to march and that is the prime trout month.

Trout lakes are different regulations from the streams....fosters is a put and take lake that is open year round for people to fish. Fish whenever ya want and keep if ya want within your regs.

      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.

      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.
