That's an awesome fish for the early barbless season, or any season for that matter. I hope to tie into something big for opener on Saturday.

Clancy's article was interesting in the Thursday PB. He said that he was using husky jerk for trout in non-designated trout streams, and I was wondering how you would convince the game warden that you weren't fishing for bass, sauger, or other game fish???

I'd think they'd know there were trout in there and would understand that he was after some of the big'uns.

I thought the article was a good one, and it highlights some of the resource that many might not have known was out there...whether most people will like that or not is up in the air. wink.gif

it is funny that all of you have brought up some interesting things

Yes one of my fishing and hunting buddies is mike so that makes us mike and ike

Secondly that fish was caught in SE mn and it was on a non designated trout stream. I had a xrap tied on when we were actually checked by the warden. He knew what we were up to. Although we never discussed species he knew were weren't after suckers. Lastly my biggest trout have come out of non designated trout streams and a friend of mine is a pro at going for the big ones. he has caught 1 dozen fish over 5 pounds in his career all from se mn. His favorite lure is a number 9 yes 9 Floating jointed rapala. WOW iknow. So get out there and get away from the crowds. i have many stories of guys catching big fish but they were off the beaten path and they were not afraid to walk Miles to get to these spots. good luck on Saturday to all. Don't forget to bring you tape measures and your cameras so that you can let the big one go and just get a replica mount made. ike

HEY! I was once told by a wise man...

"The easiest way to catch a trout over 20" is not to measure it."

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
