the buckets we could explain, double as bar stools/ puke buckets. it's that constant repetitive setting the hook motion that i can'tseem to shake that will raise a few eyebrows. try explaining that one in a bar full of strangers smile.gif
there is a place on the south side, i'm trying to remember the name of. great steaks, beer in buckets. come as you are. a great place to sit and have a few. ah i remember now, but i better not say. i might get spanked by the administrator.i hate that.
drop me a mail.

Looking back on the winter it was all one big bbbblllluuuurrrr. Like,,did all that really happen?
It was real strange to go from being on the lake to burning the grass off the dikes in one day. Looking around I can see that I am the usuall 1 month behind. I have been catching up on the mail,,, I now have everything through January opened. smile.gif
There is not much water flowing to flood the fields with so I'm hoping for some rain. There are about 1,000 swans on the south fields where we have some water, awesome sight to see that many at one time. The Wood Ducks are here big time again. I have 14 duck houses in my yard so it is a good show.
This area is DRY!!!!! It would be a good time to sell swampland in this area as the swamps all look like high ground.
I've been doing a lot of my black Lab imitation. You know how it works, eat/sleep, eat/sleep,and on and on.
Moving the lodge looks to me like an excuse to head back to URL. grin.gif
Why are you interested in smelt? I saw the pictures of what just a little shiner did to Duck-O-Holic last winter. ISH!!!! shocked.gif
If I did not have some work to do on the field by your house that ditch would have had about 7 feet of water in it. It could have been the first submarine ATV. grin.gif
I did get the old dead grass burned around your house. It burned so good I even got the grass under your house burned.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
