I was thinking of taking my son and the boat out on Byllesby to get some crappies or roughies if it ever dries out a bit. Anyone having any luck out there yet?

made it out there last weekend (4/6). Went out with a few friends. Everybody was bundled up and the wind was blowing pretty bad. Cruised around the lake some, and then stayed on the west side by the park. Didn't throw out any bait, guys were complaining too much. But i threw out a few lines to remove the memory out of the line.

Was more of an opportunity to get the boat out and open it up, now its already to go for this weekend. Hoping to hit up some faribault lakes or Bylesby again. Might go by myself, so i don't have to put up w/ all the complaining.

p.s. Should also note that they had the dam opened up on byllesby and and the current was flowing pretty good, but there wasn't as much deprise in the lake as i was expecting. *But still be careful.

I got out Mon 4/16 for a few hours in the evening. Water was around 45. I marked fish suspended at 6' in 8-9' of water but couldn't get them to bite. It was good to get out though, hopefully they'll get hungry as the water warms up.

Ventured out on Byllesby on 4/27. Made it out there at 4:30. Cruised around for a little bit, no one else was on the lake. Water levels were down some, west side was pretty shallow. Had lines rigged with 1/16oz yellow jigs with crappie minnows. Dropped the lines down 4' in 6-8fow. Tossed the lines towards some fallen logs and branches. 2 min of sitting, bobbers started to drop. Pulled out 15 crappies in a couple hours between two of us. Most were 11-12", but a few just under 10". Released them all. Highlight of the day, was unintentionally pulling in a 24" eye, which released immediatly.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx

      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
