Today I called Crystal springs to ask if they knew about all the dirt being dumped into foster.To my suprise they did'nt know about it,but said if they did they would'nt have planted that last batch of rainbows.I was disgusted watching truck after truck dump dirt they have been digging up close by,probably not knowing the effects it could have on a spring fed pond.Then pushing it into the lake further with a bull dozer.I know it's a city owned park,but come on.The city caters to a couple of falcons on top of mayo,But we can dump city sludge on a few hundred trout paid for by the tax payers.I also called Lansboro fishery and they also were not told of this happening.Does this seem bad to someone???I then called park and rec and they said they were doing it to fill in the deep drop off area by the swimming area due to swimming deaths.Please!!! give me a break!They have dumped more pollutants into that water,you won't even want to swim in it.There is so many ground chemicals from areas dug up around the zumbro river project in town that you can't even see 6 inches down in the water.I am expecting to hear tommarrow from the fisheries people .

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
