Hi Preston my name is Mike Kath my dads name is Jim.We operated out of Buffalo, I dont think we have met but your name does ring a bell I proably saw your traps someplace I dont know if you ever trapped down this way we ,used to get out around the hutch area once in awhile, and I did do some test trapping out in that area a couple of times, closer to the sunburg area.I am sure we proably did buisness with some of the same guys at some point though.

Swampman i got a question for ya ,,, is there any reason that the majority of the bait shops dont carry shiners and rainbow/dace minnows . Granted shiners are tough to keep alive so i can somewhat understand the reasons for those , but the Dace minnows are lots Hardier than fatheads and work better for me anyhow. any tips of where and at what times of year that anyone caries thos in the buffalo area?

DEWOUTDOOR70 you must have lived on the e ne side of the lake .yea pelican used to be one of our main lakes. I spent more hours on that lake than proably any other. It got trapped by alot of bait companies there arent many minnow lakes that size in the whole state ,I dont miss driving on it in the winter though ,dangerous lake.ROCKHARDIN MN as far as the shiners most shops do carry them in the spring and winter they are harder to handle in the warmer monthes and there is a supply problem with them also. As far as rainbows they arent a abundent minnow and are time consuming to get there really arent any in this general area. dace are somewhat the same you have to go north of here aways before you run into them although pelican lake was full of them for about a year and then they just dissapeared. One thing that bait shops dont like about dace is they are hard to keep in a tank they like to jump and you often have to put something around the edges of your tanks to keep them in, they are good minnows though.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
