Southmetro,

Have only been out once form shore this year. Had a very good sized cat on by Lillydale, but it got hung up in fallin timber.

Going to Mpls or St paul from shore this weekend. I spent the last month on boat and getting ready to do some hardcore shore fishing. Nothing beets sitting back and a large group of buddies with our polls in line at shore. Maybe a campfire and some good food. Plus coming down from north and my gas guzzler boat motor, shore fishing is a little cheaper and less setup and take down time. Easy!

Mid July my brother-in law and his buddies set up a all day carp trip on a Sat... It is know as the "Carp Classic". I from shore in Lillydale park. Years ago, we drew a rather large crowd. In past years, the crowd has slimmed down. It sure is still fun. Early morning to late evening carp fest.

Well, I hope to have a story or two from this weekend. Will report when I do. Good luck!

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
