Hey Guys,
I have a cabin on Camp 90 forest road. We started bear baiting last weekend and will be back up there this weekend and the first week of Sept. I am bringing my boat this weekend and am wondering what lake you think I should fish. In previous years I have had good luck on Ash Lake,and hit and miss on Kab.& Nam., but because of the busy year I haven't had the boat up there yet. Thanks in advance for any pointers!!!

Ash Lake has been pretty good for panfish for the last few weeks. Kab has been very slow for eyes but good for smallies. Namakan has been kickin out pretty good eyes fairly consisently.

Kab has been givin up lots of sauger and perch in addition to the smallies, so I guess it depends what you,re lookin for.

I don,t know Myrtle lake well but I hear fishing has been good there.

We had heavy rain last night so it should reduce fire danger and assure you of a good bear opener vs. closing off areas because of fire danger. Good luck, guts < )))))><

Hey Gutz,
Well I just returned home to St. Cloud last night from the cabin. I just wanted to let you and others know how we did. We spent Sunday on Elephant Lake and the fishing was slow but we were able to pick up a couple eyes and some smallies. There was a nice family crappie fishing near us that were staying at Mel Georges that caught a 2# crappie along with others. Then on Monday we went to Ash Lake from noon til 6 and had a blast. The sunfish were big and plentiful and it was great. We also caught a few crappies and 1 walleye right before we left. In case anyone is wondering we caught them on leeches and we fished near the deadheads on the east end. Also just want to say a big thanks to Val at Cold Springs.
By the way we are 11 for 12 on bear baits. It looks to be a promising season. Thanks LarryK

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
