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.

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
