Can american minnows go to canada? If I'm cruising down the river and its safer can I be on the canada side? What if there is a rock to go around can i go on to the canada side? Is it better to drift or anchor? Why do I catch sturgeons walleye fishing? When will the forks open? Whats the right temp to fish? What if my boat is on the american side can I cast in to canada? Plastic or live bait? What color? How much weight? Where do all these people come from? When will birchdale be open? Is the landing open? How big of a boat should I bring? can I put my 30 foot yacht in? Do u have a picture of the landing? Is it worth the drive? Gas Prices? Can't for get how dirty is the water? Thats all I got for now thanks for the help. Lets have a fun year!

Cant believe I forgot that one, answer. Yes but take the transducers off and put the plug in from the inside of the boat.. Don't want anyone wrecking anything and if you come bring a Chainsaw, augers, axes, torches, shout guns, and spud bars I have seen 15 guys open birchdale up. I have a pic somewhere. NO explosives boarder patrol doesn't like it.

You caught my interest. Only question I can't answer...what's a "shout gun"? I'm guessing it's only affective at extremely close range. crazy

Great post....not....

Some people need to relax whats else is there to do but put new line on the reels. Get a Drink and wait. Don't get to excited wont be anytime soon. Matter of fact some could use a bottle. Drink up and look at the forecast. Remember no drinking on the Canada side they don't like that either. Make sure you grease your wheel bearings don't want anyone losing a wheel on the way.

A shout gun is when people come here from a long way and they shout at the ice cause they came to early.

Heck, I only live 50 miles south of the lake and I still shout at the ice in rage just cause the fish won't cooperate! cry

Nothing wrong with a little fun guys. Just know the difference between fun, and mocking people just for asking honest questions. The OP is kind of crossing the border on that, and there were several people just recently permanently banned from the site for doing just that. Just a gentle "heads up".

Have fun. No bullying! cool

No pun intended, right!? wink

Where exactly is that line he crossed?? How do you determine it? Lakemaster chip with line drawn on map? or rangefinder?

Seriously, good reminder. I see it as just adding to all the silliness / giddniness that makes this Forum fun this time of year.....I think it's going to be about the only fun we have "Rainy River-wise" this early season. Hope I'm wrong, but I guarentee we can have some fun, if we all lighten up and smile at ourselves.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      What size  holes ?

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
