Ok, I'm married now. Its great to be married, but I've basically missed a whole summer of fishing. And to top it all off, my phone finally croaked and I lost all your phone numbers. Anybody have any fall fishing plans yet?

Ben,

Cangrats Ben on getting married...what, you got a Honey-Do list a mile long now? Since my motor fried, my fishing has been very limited. Hopefully I'll have things running in a week. Would like to get out with you again on the river for some smallies, or float tube on lake X. Give me a call, 763-404-0891, we'll plan something. I'll probably be gone most of the weekend though. Have a safe holiday!

Ha thats funny...the "Honey Do" list is currenly long enough that I probably won't be doing any fishing this weekend anway. I was telling Cyberfish that I'm getting all pumped up for ice fishing, although perhaps its abit early yet. We'll have to get out and do some fall fishing; I'll give you a call.

Yeah I think so. I live in Roseville now, but I commute to work in Maple Grove. So after work this winter that puts me within striking distance of any lakes in Plymouth or even Sarah or Independence. There are many lakes between Maple Grove and Roseville off 694, and I would also like to check out White Bear Lake and Bald Eagle. I'm also not all too far from Chisago Lakes area, so I definitely have some exploring to do...

Yesterday I took a friend to the Crow River out by Rogers. It was uncharted territory and all we caught was a redhorse and one small bass. Water was rising and it looked sort of like coffee creamer, so that probably affected the fishing. First time out since the last week of July.

Carp,

I know this is short notice, but if you want to get out for a couple hours tonight, let me know. My boat situation is different (better) now.

Sorry Casey, I got your message abit late. You know I get off work in the northwestern suburbs, so If you want to hit the Mississippi or 'Tonka some night after work, I'd probably be game for it. Anything going on next week?

For weekdays, sept. either 11th or 15th would be best. If you want to get out on the river saturday afternoon/evening of the 16th, that would work too.

I am mostly musky hunting Mon thru Wed and occasional Friday night. Saturdays in the fall I plan to chase smallies and eyes on the river. BUt if you guys get into a hot non-tubing lake let me know. I'll drag the boat over and take you out.

Can only get out for two hours but I am going to give it my best. Pre front fishing is too good to pass up.

Cyberfish,

That's the second time you tried to kill me with your float tube terrorism!

Wow, I should've made it out! I ended up taking my brother out and doing some wade fishing on the Crow River near Rogers. Other than a cigar sized smallie, we caught diddly squat. It was sure nice to be out though. The funnest part of the outing was watching my bro try to wade across the river...knee deep, belly button, chin...I thought he was going to break out in a crawl stroke before he turned back.

      Thank you very much Outy22!

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
