My friend Dave invited me to an assume bite.He found fish Sunday and Thursday on a shoreline point. Jig and minnow 9 to 12 foot with a minnoow. I couldnt hook em but between Jeff and Dave within a 1.5 hours boated our limit. we quit after two and one half after boating 30 plus. all were between 17 and 21. It was assume thanks Dave. Also its the first time for the three of us that we broke ice to get on the Lake.

We fished the river Sat. and picked up 10 walleyes...3 nice ones, 16-17-20 and the rest were little guys. We also got 1/2 dozen pike, from a couple, up to about 10 pounds. We couldn't get a thing on artificals, not even tipped. A plain hook and minnow accounted for everything we caught.

It was cold! 19 degrees with a wind and the rod tips would ice right up. Everything else was pretty warm, but the hands took a beating and when they decided to quit working properly, we left. Last open water trip...time for the ice to come now.

      That sounds encouraging. Did you notice all the dead carp on shore? I wonder what's up with that, a virus or something maybe?

      I've never trout fished in MN and was hoping to get some help as a newcomer to the state. I know there are a lot of streams but I've also read that DNR info on them is often out of date and I dont want to drive an hour or more to a desolate stream.    Most seem to either have only browns or only small brooks. I really am after some medium size, 12 to 14 inches, rainbow trout for the smoker so I definitely will release any big browns if I catch one.    I've got waders and a kayak and am willing to do what is necessary to get to good, less pressured water.    Bonus offer, I have 2 very stable fishing kayaks, you can stand up in them, and would be more than happy to let you use one if you wanted to organize a float down river in exchange for showing me a decent spot to get some rainbows. Any takers or advice?    Edit - I live in Andover and would prefer to keep the drive below an hour and a half unless it's a well worth while stretch of water.

      That's a really neat boat

      Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

      Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately.
