Best of luck to all heading out this weekend for the Trout Season Opener!

Safe travels and great fishing to all!

Be ready for a little rain and comfortable temperatures down here in SE MN.

There should be some active insect hatches so be sure to have some BWO's, Midges, and even a few Caddis dries on hand for some surface action if the hatch pans out.

Thanks for the well wishes. How did things go down there? I won't make it to the driftless country until Trout Day.

Were they snappin'?

Hay Creek was fun Saturday, not many people on it though. When I switched to a nymph I started getting bites and the trout came out to play, especially when it started drizzling.

Overall it was a good weekend. There was a decent BWO hatch on Saturday afternoon amidst the clouds and rain. I got out for a couple hours Sunday and caught a few fish.

The next few weeks should hold some awesome fishing.

Thanks for the reports. After slinging lead at chromers all weekend I'm yearning for a chance to gently cast dry flies over rising trout.

Wx Guy, will you be at Trout Day? I'm getting pretty excited for a stream trout expedition.

Anybody else?

I've got a previous commitment that Saturday, so I won't be able to make Trout Day. It looks like you should have quite the turn out there, though.

Too bad. I'm not sure that we've had a chance to meet. Maybe next time...Anybody else thinking about Trout Day?

      The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly.  In any case, nice fish!  Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet?  Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up.  Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
