That could be arranged, like I told you that day you saw me Pike fishing in Warroad I can hook you up with some no prob. It's not so much the how as the where up in these parts when it comes to the chubs. definetly wanna use a double funnel trap as they're pretty good at getting out when they see you coming. Kinda hard to build a real efficient double gate trap on the small size trap a guy is limited to without a commercial permit but a guy can build one that'll work pretty good.

Those Big wild Shiners I had that day are thick right now and usually the Chubs show up a week or three behind them, then they start their nest building and are quite catchable in the runs they nest in.

WT one of these days I'll show you where my property is south of town and then you can just get some out of my keep pens in the creek behind the shop. Far less time consuming! I'll let you know when I have a few gallons out there.

Hopefully the creeks did'nt swell too much after the past few rains as I'm planning on getting out today and/or tomorrow to trap some bait for the weekend.

Fisky,

That sounds great! I appreciate it. Good bait is hard to come by up here a lot of the time. Drop me a line when you have some red tails around... I'll make it up to you somehow... I often have a open seat in the Ranger!

Fisky, I'm just south of Wannaska on the river and would be interested in seeing your setup for trapping the chubs as well as any tips on areas to look for.

Widetrack, I'll be up at the angle quite a bit this summer.... if you're looking for someone to go musky hunting some time let me know.

Ripper,

you will have to get authorization from Fisky to tag along.

Rbach:

Sounds good, I'm at the Angle as often as possible, and fish solo quite often. Nobody else can put up with me... crazy.gif

Have we met?

I was only joking. I did manage to pick quite a few crawlers on Monday night though. Leeches should be coming this week from Fargo.

Fisky, do you trap those too?

Widetrack, I don't think we've met.... I've seen a lot of your posts and noticed that you often fish for muskies at the angle. I get out fishing for them when friends come to visit, but everyone else wants to fish walleyes. It's nice a nice change of pace. Shoot me an email if you ever need company... rbach33@wiktel.com

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
