Well, the Miss was a miss for me.
I got 2 little dinks in a couple hours this morning down in the Anoka/Dayton area.
I had 6 other hits, but all those were dinks too.

Unbelieveable.I'm at a loss. It just can't be.....

Yowzer do I like senkos! Eric to say it was an awesome day fishing with you would be an understatement! It had to be one of the best days ever for me. And a bonus 9.5 snake for you for frosting on the cake. My 2 biggest were 18 and Erics were 18 and 19.25. Yowzer!!!!!!!!

BLB, the fishing was awesome near Monticello. Buzzbaits, Spinnerbaits and of course, Senko's were the ticket. I lost count, but I would guess we were in the 30-40 range. We fished from 2pm until 6pm.

Unfortunately the river is lower than ever and I don't think I'm going to try to navigate some of these areas again until the River goes up some. We were stuck half the day. Banging up the boat quite a bit.

Smallie, I feel your pain. I used to have a modified V-Hull, now it's a modified modified Semi V-Hull.

Another good day today! My son mark got this nice 19 incher. Little bugger got me again. smile.gif We released 21 smallies, 1 eye and 1 snake. Used 19 Senko type lures. Wacky hooked them but stuck the hook through twice and they lasted longer. I got 3 on one lure. Man was it windy!! Hard boat controll but still fun. smile.gif

frown.gif All these pics and reports are making me drool! They need a smallie face thing with drool coming out! LOL.

Man, Eyeguy is mopping us all up with his smallie pics! Again, I'm missing out on the great action from Monti up to Sartell/Sauk Rapids! Hopefully that actions stays hot around Monti for this coming weekend's event.

Great catches everyone (except BigLakeBa$$ - LOL! j/teasing BLB)! I hope to have some pics of my own sometime soon. wink.gif

Oh man, now my cronies are on my case.
My counseling sessions are gonna need to be more frequent in order to get out of this hole. wink.gif
I need to redeem myself on the river ASAP. I can't finish off the fishing season on a note like that.
Hunting season is awfully close and focus will be diverted heavily.

BM
Did you go out or what? Or are you hiding behind a poor report too??? LOL

Wow, BLB firing back...LOL. You gotta love that guy tongue.gif LOL!

No reports for me. I took my youth group kids canoeing up on the 'Croix (Taylors Falls down to Osceola) on Saturday. I brought the rod along with a mini tackle box but only managed a handful of casts and about 4.5hrs of paddling! LOL! Everytime we stopped on an island to grab a snack from the cooler, I would make some casts, but nada. I didn't expect much, but was able to scout out some decent spots!

This Saturday you're missing out! Who needs a deer stand when you can have the smallie magnet bragging rights to keep you all warm and fuzzy all winter long... LOL.

I caught pocket bass on the Rum and missed a nice pike. I did catch a small walleye though. Nice treat, and released per usual.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
