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.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      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
