5 posts in this topic

i called my uncle today to fill him in on deer hunting this weekend. he said his brother-in-law was driving around the west metro and had another truck comin at him and a bull moose passed right inbetween the two trucks. they called the cops and said there was another reporting of a sighting early this morning. just wondering if anyone else has seen the bull?

It's true there is a large Bull moose running around the Chanhassen area. It has been seen a few times today. So watch the driving would not be good to hit him. I do think at least one of my buddies has a picture so I'll see what I can do. WCCO also had it on the 6 o'clock news.

It happens from time to time. There was one in the Elk River Ostego area about 6 or 7 years back I saw it personally. some times it is cause by a brain disease sometime just a Rut crazed bull. However this far out of its range I would bet it is mighty confused.

My cousin from Long Prairie told me of a guy he knows who went to his bowhunting land last month and as he pulled in the driveway of the farm he spotted three very large(like 50") bull moose walking in the pasture.

He rushed in to get the farmer and told him to watch just beyond the barn and he'd see something very cool in a couple seconds. The farmer was obviously amazed when three stud bulls wandered by. I guess they bedded down in his pasture and half the town of Long Prairie was out there looking them over that night.

I've heard of numerous strays over the years, but never three bulls at once.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
