yeah, I don't know about that. Maybe if I would have brought my stuff to town with me. Besides Tyler you've seen my sunfish catching ability at Foster. I'm just not sure its fair. I can fill a bag of 3" sunnies and 5" crappies pretty quickly. cool.gif

Tell me where and how. cool.gif The only thing I can ever pull out of there is trout. ONE time this year I was actually able to get onto the sunnies. I'm better hope to get 'big fish' tonight

small jigs tipped with waxies in 8-15 FOW can get you sunfish. The crappies are usually suspended over deeper water.

Trout are common in the top 3' of water and the bottom 3' of water, but can be found anywhere in the water colum and at any depth.

Dan, you interested in show a sucka' how to catch his own species?

I'm headed down to the Hammond area. If you want to come out give me a call and I can meet you at a spot of your choice or I can tell you where I am at.

I don't get great reception but leave a message and it may finally come through and I can call you back.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
