Frontenec

I was in the Lake City area with some budddies on sunday and we decided to try the Frontenac Pond. We poked a couple holes on the east side? I was suprised at how shallow it was. I wandered over by the shore and kicked open an old hole and there staring up at me was a small blue gill, I reached down and scooped him up and through him back down the hole.I knew something was wrong.Then I looked at some open water by the shore. There was water flowing in from the banks.It looked like a scene from a horrer movie there were thousands of dead and dying small blue gills by the flowing water, trying to get oxygen.

Maybe in the long run it will be good for the pond getting rid of some of the small stunted fish but, it didn't look good.

The pond isn't very deep at all. The deepest holes I've been able to find are no more than 7'.

The pond is full of small gills and I think that it would have no real effect to loose those kind of numbers. The fish in there don't get real big because of the numbers.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
