YA THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE IN APRIL THESE DAYS. I ALWAYS MAKE THE TRIP ANYWAY THOUGH CAUSE ITS NICE TO GET TOGETHER WITH OLD FRIENDS, HAVE A FEW POPS, SIT AROUND THE "SMART" FIRE, AND LISTEN TO THE OWLS. YOU CAN STILL FOOL A FEW TROUT OPENING WEEKEND BUT I DON'T GET TOO SERIOUS UNTIL SUNDAY NIGHT,MONDAY MORNING ETC.
............MAN,AM I READY!

Dark30,

As it stands right now, I am planning on having it at Forestville State park end of April early May, pending space availability. If for some reason, things don't work out we will have something for sure before the end of the season!!! I will keep everyone posted.

Right now my mind is on some Manitoba walldogs, leaving tomnorrow for a 5 day trip! Yehaaaa bring on them white-tips!!! My rod will keep bendin'!!! Jim W

DARK30,
I didn't notice before, but you said you go to HiddenValley sometimes. That's only about 7 miles from me. I wouldn't doubt we've fished some of the same waters around there.
See ya out there!

YA,THE ONE IN PRESTON IS THE ONE I HAVE BEEN GOING TO FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS. ITS RIGHT ON THE ROOT AND ITS STARTING TO GET REALLY POPULAR. WE COULD HOOK UP SOMETIME AND FOOL SOME TROUT IF YOU WANT. I KEEP THE CAMPER DOWN THERE YEAR ROUND SO THATS ABOUT THE ONLY PLACE I STAY BUT I DO DRIVE AROUND TO DIFFERENT SPOTS.

LOL Dark30,
Looks like "I got our lines crossed" here.
I was talking about the Hidden Valley campground in Welch,MN. Preston is about 60-70 miles south of me. I've fished that area too, but not since I lived in Oronoco/Pine Island area about 10 years ago. But, Getting together is good regardless!
See ya out there!

In checking on the reservations for Trout day in Forestville State PArk, "Sarge" and I had to wet our lines a bit. We managed 4 or 5 browners. That really got the Spring blood flowing!!!!! Jim W

I'LL MORE THAN LIKELY BE THERE, I CAN'T WAIT TO FOOL A FEW! HOW MUCH SNOW DID YOU FIND AROUND THERE? I'M GONNA TRY TO GET DOWN TO PRESTON EARLY TOO IF WE START TO GET A GOOD MELT GOING. I GOT FLOODED TWICE LAST YEAR WITH THE CAMPER BUT I WAS LUCKY COMPARED TO SOME OTHERS.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
