Can't make it on the ninth,but let me know how you do.The root is a big river with big browns,but finding them is like finding a needle in a haystack,unless your very familiar with what stretches produce and when.I found that in creeks that big fish are extremely territorial and easier to pinpoint,but in rivers they tend to roam because of a more abundance of food and fluctuating water temps.

Had pretty good success down in lanesboro today. Ended the day with 3 browns all about 11-13" 1 rainbow going about 11, and about 10 smallies ranging from about 4-13" and the one big guy that was hungry and fooled me thinking i had a nice brown ended up going about 16. All of these fish came from one little stretch in the river right outside of town.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
