4/29 Trout Repo

5 posts in this topic

With finals looming just around the corner, being only a week away, Sunday was the only day I knew I would be able to get out. I didn't get out any too early (college and early mornings don't go together on weekends). Left the apartment around 11:00 and made it to the stream a little before noon.

Started off catching one fish and having three more hit in the pool by the bridge. Not bad for the first time out, in the very first spot. Fishing slowed for awhile after that. Could have been due to the other footprints in the area. The farther I got upstream the less footprints there were and the better the fishing got.

Caught and released around 25 fish in a few hours. Many were in the 6-8" range. Managed to catch a few that went 10" and 12", one 13", and a very healthy 17".

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
