Morels and Asparagus

4 posts in this topic

My Father-in-law found morels way up here on the Canadian border this past weekend, just getting started.

I have picked wild Asparagus twice now as well.

Another week and it should really start popping up here.

I was wandering looking for sheds and morels and stumbled on a nest with nine mallard eggs in it. Momma scared me good launching out of that nest when I was walking nearby. I wandered off to a distance and she returned right away. Hope the skunks don't find that nest!

I never found any wild asparagus. The best asparagus I know of comes from the farmers market in Minneapolis by 55 and 94. There is a farmer from Cold Spring, MN that sells by far the best asparagus I've every had.

We have already picked our asparagus a couple times this year. It is really tasty stuff. From the sound of things the morels should be around by now.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
