Hello all,

I am looking for some additional volunteers for Trout Day.

I could really use both fly-fishing and spin fishing assistance. There is a portion of Trout Day where every one hits the stream. There are always new folks needing help with the basics.

If interested, please let me know here.

Could use a kettle grill or two as well for the weiner roast.

Thanks

Jim W

Although I love the north country, I do miss fishing the SE MN streams for trout and smallmouth.

Especially miss Trout Day and an opportunity to share my passion with kids and their parents. If you grew up fishing lakes as I did and streams are new to you, this is a great opportunity to see what stream fishing is all about. If you're not into fishing so much but your kids have shown interest, this is also a wonderful way to get them started.

What I really like about fishing smaller rivers is the simplicity. Hip boots, a rod and reel and a pocket tackle box with a half dozen lures will get the job done compared with a boat, motor, trailer, trolling motor, depth finder, gps, bait, landing net, PFD's, cushions, anchor, etc. to fish bigger water. Oh ya.... my tackle box in the boat has about 50x as much tackle too!

Be a long drive for you eh Wes?

Wish you could make it.

Less than two weeks out folks.

Please remember, all need to register for the new waiver.

Also, seminars will start 9:00am sharp so please arrive earlier for coffee rolls, juice AND, to register for the day and the free door prizes.

****Could still use some volunteers (can never have too many)*****

Volunteers usually aren't worked too hard.lol Just need moderate knowledge of stream fishing, spin or fly fishing.

****also could use a couple more grills for the weiner roast****

Have any questions or would like to volunteer, post here or stop in Culver's and ask for Jim.

Even though I won't make it down, the sportfishing club here does a kid's fishing day a few weeks later at the local trout pond. So guys like you do inspire others to come up with events that help ensure the future of the most enjoyable sport on the planet. Hope it's a fun day for all -:)

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
