Mr. Stanley...

I must have accidentally deleted your e-mail address. Anyway, I have monday and tuesday off next week, wondering if you would like to head to the river? If not, could you e-mail me your address again and give me a report on what's going on there? I might go it alone. I would not be able to make it this weekend, as I have to work, but maybe next?

Next weekend Nov 11 is a FM get together on Pool 4. I am bumming a ride with another FMer so I won't be taking my boat down. Some of the Pro Staff are loooking for an open seat if you want to haul yours down that day. Check the Pool 4 forum.I can get out on Tonka Monday and Tuesday night but nothing during the day sorry. I haven't been out on Tonka for over 3 weeks -been fishing elsewhere but it's time to do some eye hunting. Email is markkstanley@msn.com.

Hey Casey,

Have you hit up any of those big fall walleyes yet?

Carpie-boy! How is life treating you these days? Any "young carps" on the way? haha! I haven't been fishing for quite awhile, so no, I haven't hit my late fall walleye spot yet, althought the weather was prime a couple times. Would like to hit it at least once before the boat goes bye for the winter. (I might just do it tonight) I suppose you are anxious to hit first ice then?

Nope no young carpies just yet. I haven't been out all that much since summer. I'd say we're more than overdue to do some fishing sometime. I watched my In Fisherman ice fishing video last night and that got me all fired up. I might just try firing up the auger this weekend to see if it will start.

Just don't bring it to bed with you. You're wife might not approve! tongue.gif

Carp, Cyberfish knows (and I don't) of a spot for some slab river crappies this time of year, maybe we'll have to get you out there some saturday?

Mark, I have some questions for you regarding the river, so watch your e-mail.

The marinas on Pool 4 are putting out crappies right now. If we could find something closer I am up for it.

Cybermaniac,

Nice slabbers!

Mark, I have all day monday off, and was planning on doing something then. Can you get out during the day tomorrow?

I suppose you gotta work during the day? Don't know about tomorrow night, though.

Mark,

Monday, Tuesday and wednesday evenings don't look good. I can still get out for a few hours monday morning. Since the temps are a bit mild for the river, I thought I would poke around the on the lake we fished this spring and see if I can locate some 1st ice spots. Tell me if I am wrong on the temp/river thing.

Pool 2 is really putting out walleyes right now. I've been planning to hit that lake too and maybe Sarah but that will be the 18th for me unless weather is too nice to pass up on the big pond.

I'd love to but I am just getting back from Utah that Thursday and it won't fly with the significant other. Next year for sure. Think we can get out this Sat? Saw some guys on Sarah Sunday. I have Sat day and Friday night clear right now.

Can probably get out for a 2-3 hours saturday morn, and that's about it. I should find out what Ben is doing, maybe we could all meet somewhere, eh?

About what time would you like to go out? Where would you like to go? I've got the itch bad...

If we go out to "big bass" lake before sunrise, I'm sure the gills will be going, and there is a good possibility we will run into the crappies. With that lake though, the fish shut down an hour or two after sunrise. Nada.

Another option would be the "other" lake that has some very nice gills in it. However, this lake will need to be explored since early ice locations are unknown on this lake.

We could also meet up with Juggs and Cyberfish at a certain location an hour away that has big crappies in it...I can always find a way to fish a few more hours smile.gif

Just let me know what sounds appealing and doable to you both...

Casey and Ben--We're good to go for Jan. 6th and 7th. If anybody wants to take Friday off and get up there early let me know. I'm definitely interested. The resort owners say there isn't a check-in time since there won't be anyone in the cabin before us so we can use the cabin any time Friday.

Great! What lake is it on, anyway? I think I will have that friday off, so I can hook up with you early and scout around. If Mitch (my brother) comes, we may have to take two vehicles though, that way I can bring up my portable and all of our crap. Any idea how much it will cost me? Mitch is unemployed right now, so I told him I would pick up his tab.

It's Wildwood Resort on Bass Lake in Cohasset. You can go to their website (wildwoodresort.net) and check out our cabin (#9) and fish pics. The cost is $399 for the weekend divided by six is about $67 apiece. We might pick up another guy or two though. I'll put in for Friday off and we'll make it a full day.

      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.
