Just a question regarding what info we provide related to SE Minnesota fishing.

YEs we provide, stream flow, "Hopper's" hatch info, if they are biting, presentation info and over all fishing reports for South Eastern Minnesota.

What would you as a regular visitor to this forum, like to see written or discussed. IS there something missing? Just curious!

Extremely excited about this years "Open Water" season!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

I would love to see more local people visit and join in to this forum!!

When I go tackle shopping I try to make a point of telling at least one other person who is looking at fishing stuff about this site.

I think I better go buy some more stuff!!

I agree with trying to get more folks on this forum. Kudos to Jim W & Sarge on the quality of info though. I've recruited one new member. This seems to be the ONLY forum where stream trout are discussed at all. Walleyes and largemouths are fun but there's something about a big ol' brown bending your rod over in a spring-fed creek. I appreciate the stream reports when spring rolls around. Please keep posting these when possible. I'm always baffled how 2 or 3 streams can be within 5 miles of each other and one can be flooding and another not even dirty.

Okay, I confess, I'm a smallie junkie. I search this site for information on the local smallie action. I too have passed on information about this site and a couple of other favorite sites to new fishing friends every chance I get. I especially liked a thread that was out about a year or so ago when people were discussing some of their favorite smallie spots. I would also be interested in seeing any stories about fishing within the city limits of Rochester. My barber seems to think that there are big fish below the Silver Lake dam waiting to be caught.

Big Lew,

Growing up, I use to spend just about every day either on Silver lake or below the dam. It was truly phenomenal fishing! However the city decided to fill in the scour hole below the dam, eliminating a huge fishery. It has been a couple decades since I have returned below the dam.

I am hoping to get out in a canoe and hit Silver lake this year. There are some bass to be had in there! I will definitely give report, especially when I catch the State record eh?LOL!

PS. I hope I can convince Sarge in spending his Tax return on a new square back alumacraft!

Jim W. You may remember a post last summer from me. I had gone below the Silver Lake dam in my canoe with a buddy on the 4th of July. My partner thought for sure I was going to throw him in the drink because of his constant snags. He did claim one "hit" that felt pretty big, but the line broke. We were using 6 lb test and light action gear. I didn't have a single bite that day. Before sitting below the dam we had ventured down stream to almost the 37th Street bridge and back. We had put in just below the rec center.It was a great day to be on the water and it was definately a learning experience. We both look forward to getting back to the river this summer. According to my barber, there should be some awesome smallmouth bass and a few northerns down there below the dam.

      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.

      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.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
