Man oh man, Casey one heck of a fish! That looks at least 6 pounds. Did you catch her on a Manns minus one?

It measured about 20.5 inches, but the gut looked like it swallowed a softball. It had to be 6 lb. Carp, I caught it on a black Booyah spinner with a gold curly tail plastic trailer. The worst part of the day was putting up with Cybe's whining tongue.gif! Actually Mike did a nice job taking snapshots, they turned out great!

Wow, very nice! Was she able to pull your tube around?

Im not even going to ask for a lake name but it looks pretty wooded, does it have a public access? I seriously contemplated getting a float tube this year so I could fish a few of the small lakes around my house without a public access.

It was on a small metro lake, no P.A. And yeah, it is fun going for a ride with a big one on in the tube. Usually they just spin you around a couple times.

Thanks Buzz, but no replica for the green carp. She was fun to CPR though. Did you ever get out on saturday? I was lookin' for your e-mail, but figured you got busy with something else. No biggie, we'll get out some other time. You do hard water fishing?

I didn't get out Saturday, I thought it was going to be crappy weather and made other family plans and we had people over for a group BBQ in the afternoon. I do the Ice fishing thing, however I'm not diehard into it. We'll have to hook up again hopefully before the boat goes into storage!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc
