I'm glad to see there's a forum dedicated to fishing in my area. I'm new to Minnesota and new to the Annandale area. I recently moved here from Los Angeles and I work for Pure Fishing as a Territory Manager. I hope to learn a lot about the local fisheries in the next few months, especially Sylvia, the lake I'm on.

Catcherman, Welcome to minnesota and the FM site. You can find all types of info here. Sylvia is a great lake for fishing, it all depends on what you like to catch. We live in an area where you don't need to go far to find some really good fishing year around.

Hope we can chatt soon.

Hi Catcherman,

I am also kind of new to the area. My wife is from Annandale originally and we are currently house sitting on Pleasant Lake while in the process of building. Give me an email sometime and maybe we can fish or just share some info. Hope to hear from you. Email address is: chad@amecommunity.com

Welcome to our neck of the woods!

You picked a great area to live in when it comes to fishing. There are so many good lakes within a 35 minute drive from where we live. Whithin that same distance we are able to target several species of quality fish. If you're ever looking for somebody to fish with shoot me an email. The ice is out now on some of the lakes, which makes for a short "late-ice" season, but allows us to get the boats out even earlier than previous years.

I was just going to reply and suggest that some of you come to the Northwest Sportshow this weekend and say hello. I've been there all week, as I am the southern Minnesota Sales Rep. for Berkley, Fenwick, Abu Garcia, etc.

If any of you make it out there today or tomorrow, come by our booth and ask for Mickey, that's me.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I think I'll be spending a lot of time reading the good info you have all taken the time to post here. Eventually, I'll chime in a little more as well.

On a separate note, I noticed Deitz is the moderator here. He and I know each other from a few years back on my site and we happened to run into each other at the Sportshow this year. He's helping out at Thorne Bros., one of my accounts. It was the first meeting face to face. Pretty cool.

On saturday, were you at the Berkley stand. I talked to a guy but didn't see his name tag. Taught me some stuff about weeds and walleyes. Might've been you.

I was in the Berkley booth every day except Tuesday.

What did you learn about weeds and walleyes?

Some very interesting stuff. He said that lakes that have a large population of stoked walleyes like to live in the weeds. They like weeds because in rearing ponds, they live in weeds all the time and are used to it. Told me to use the Gulp minnows with a jig and just rip them through the weeds. Might end up giving it a try this year.

Well that wasn't me, but it's sound advice. I'd also rig them on a drop shot and pull them through a little slower with a lot more action.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
