I've got a date with a few steelhead that day otherwise I'd stop by. I hope our those double top secret dock secrets aren't let out of the bag wink.gif That's great that tom is going to help out fellow anglers but I doubt he's going to share ALL his trade secrets. Pay attention though everyone. Your trolling season is right around the corner and you too could soon find yourself with the 'hot hand'.

Tom,

We can all use a few new tips and ideas. I could still definitely use some tips on bottom bouncing for lake trout. I have had some success with this but not as consistent as I would like. I plan to be there and appreciate you taking the time to share info.

I would like to attend but I have to be in Esko at 10am for a short while. I could make it down there about 10:30 if that would be OK. I'm not sure if I would want to interrupt anything going on.

Your not going to want to miss this guys. I went to one of Toms seminars last year and it was excellent. I think I learned more listening to his seminar then I did in ten years of trail and error and learning on my own. Definitely worth it.

Count me in Tom! I look forward to this seminar, and also the swap meet, then finally getting my tush on the lake and catching fish instead of doing circles around you getting burnt by the sun and being bored!!

Thanks Tom! My boat is going to stay secure in the garage! I just ordered some parts for my boat. When i drained my lower unit oil last fall, i lost my 2 screws/gaskets that hold the oil in, so i called Linc Rec in Minog and got those ordered. Now i have to check over the downriggers and check out the cable and counters, make sure they are in good shape, check out the batteries etc. A good vacuum and i will be close.

I am looking to install a CD player and GPS/Sonar Unit. i just emailed you about those...let me know what you think.

I had mentioned before that i will be fishing the brule that day but forgot about weather...if the weather is miserable I'm thinking about bringing my non-trolling work buddies to the seminar and sounds fun to see who's gonna be on the lake. Just wondering how much it costs or is it free seminar. My budget is running pretty tight these days blush.gif. Probably not much if anything and worth more than all my gear. The gear that is slowly getting set for TROLLING! I'm kinda excited about that. smile.gif

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
