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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
