2nd Annual Trout Day!!!

11 posts in this topic

Well people, we have just over a month until this years Trout Day, held in Beautiful Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in SE MN.

<April 27th 9:00am to 3ish>

This years event will prove more educational, fun and of course a lot more and better door prizes!(Don't forget it's FREE)

If you are new to this event, check it out on the Tourney Events Forum or SE MN Forum.

It is for fisherman of all ages and level of experience.

Fly fishing seminars, Spin fishing seminars,
DNR Electro-fishing demonstrations, invertabrate samplings, fly tying demos and we even might have some on-going rod building as well!

Beyond the wonderful educational presentations, a highlight is the drawing for some wonderful door prizes!

This year so far we have Guide trips from, Mille Lacs, Lake Vermilion, Cuyuna Mine Pits,
SE MN Streams/Rivers(2) and the ST. Croix River.<other guide trip(s) yet to be named.

The Drake Motel in BlackDuck, Mn is donating a two night stay for two;

Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle has offered to donate some Angel Eyes. ( JUst to let you know, the Angel Eye hasn't really been field tested in streams in Mn, what an opportunity to have gear that no one else has on the stream?? Gear that I am certain will drive those trout nuts!!!!!!

There will be other fishing gear, gift certificates from Gander Mountain, Magnum Sports, The Bait Box and other fine door prizes, waiting to be given away!!!!!

It is a day to get together, enjoying Spring, meeting and creating new friendships, to learn and share fishing information and the all important need to emphasize conservation and maintenance of SE MN's wonderful fisheries!!!!

April 27th - 9:00am to 3:00ish

(Event attendees receive half off daily park pass)

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!

Don't forget to keep your rods bendin'!!!

Door Prize Update:

Mel Dickie has graciously offered to donate a rod again this year for Trout Day. If you ever have a desire for a high quality Custom Made Rod, check Mel out at Wild Goose Sports in Rochester,Mn.

Don't quote me here, but I do believe Frank from Redbarn Rods learned from Mel!

Thanks Mel!! Once again someone will be truly blessed with one of your fine works of art!!!

jimmy,

That applies to the daily or two day pass only. I wish we could get that good of a deal on the season pass, but they would really take a shot in the arm if they did that!

Oh no, no left over prizes for you! smile.gif

The weather should be a non-factor for attendence. Those that have said they would be there all along will be there. But you might not get the picnickers that hadn't heard about it, like last year.

And if the weather is alittle cool, what could be better than meeting some new people, learning some new things, in front of the fireplace at the pavillion, I think the one half of the building is even heated?

So fish early, come and warm up?, then head back out for the afternoon.

See ya there
Greg

I wish I could attend the 2nd Annual Trout Day. I wanted to go last year.....wanted to go this year....alas I can't swing it.

Everyone have a great time and enjoy the weather (I mean it!). My biggest trout have been caught in the middle of spring snow and/or slush storms.

Good luck and have fun!

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
