man set the drag, if i wouldn't passed on a bull can on saturday because i wasn't sure of the season, I would be kicking myself hardcore right now...

If you don't mind, what was the general area you were hunting on saturday the 9th?
My goal for this season is to shoot a bull can for the wall.

I was on middle lake north of nicollet just on the west side of wiwi bay. It didn't matter with me passing it up. I already have one on the wall. I'm sure i'll get another chance at one this weekend with the big push from the wind.


Now I just wish I woud've pulled the trigger. "but when in doubt don't"
thats why they call it huntin'

Sartell,

You'll likely get a few chances around here later in the season. We see some nearly every year but not usually until the last week in October into November.

set the drag- good thinkin'....a lot of hunters would have just shot even though they weren't sure...refreshing to see people erring on the side of caution / the law.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
