  1. So I really got my first field test of my new Zodias Rod I purchased this spring. I did bring out both the ZDS70LA and ZDS70MLA. Since I only managed to hook up with fish on the Light power rod, it's really the only one that got the real test. Anyway for both rods casting is wonderful smooth and slick. I didn't put any additional effort other than the bare minimum. Lure retrieve also was wonderful for both rods and both rods don't even feel like 7 feet rods that's I've used in the past. I almost felt like they were shorter rods with feel in likeness to a typical 6'6" rod in use. Working lure

    FG Knot - Diawa J-Braid x8

    It was just about two years ago when I decided to venture into a different braid line. Sufix Advance 832 braid was a preference of mine. So after receiving the Diawa braids, I gave it the good old line break test rundown on the knot to swivel. There were good results. Diawa J-Braid x8 .06 mm 6# knot break 8# 4 oz Diawa J-Braid x8 .13 mm 8# knot break 11# 9 oz Diawa J-Braid x8 .15 mm 10# knot break 13# Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .06mm 6# knot break 6# 4 oz Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .13 mm 8# knot break 10# 12 oz Diawa J-Braid Grand x8 .15 mm 10# knot break 16# 14 oz

    YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8

    So onto a little experiment with the FG knot testing of the YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8 and I crudely tied it onto some Fluorocarbon leader of either 30 or 40 lb test. I only did that one section and went to tie off the other end to a swivel like I normally would do so. For the results the FG knot would not break and held throughout my test. I tried a variation of knots this time and use a different choice of line to act as a buffer for the knot. Line upon itself yield a result of 5# 9 oz. Line with 80# braid yield a result of 5# 8 oz. Palomar knot: 4# 9 oz. Double Palomar knot:

    YGK G-Soul Upgrade X-8

    It's been awhile since I purchased any new braided lines. The last batch of lines was a bunch of Diawa J-Braid x8 and J-Braid Grand x8, a couple of Fireline Ultra 8, and Nanofil lines. On my list would be YGK G-Soul Upgrade X8 line and YGK G-Soul SS112 Sinking Braid line. Well, shopping cart, submitted. Well I ordered a few lines but I stayed with the small diameters again and keeping them under .200 mm for the most part. This will put it in the same frame as most of the other lines I've used in the past for ice fishing. So my impulsive line order came through and I ordered a variety of
  5. Just retired in December so I'll have a lot more time to fish. In addition to my normal walleye fishing I want to 1) learn to consistently find and catch/release larger sunfish and crappie after they spawn and 2) spend more time targeting bass, largemouth and smallmouth. I've been a longtime member here (2002) and will be posting more. I added info to my profile and "About me" section.

    Shimano Zodias - 2020

    Spinning Rods ZDS270ML I bought the 7' ML Fast action spinning rod at the same time I bought the baitcasting Zodias Rod. Originally I was leaning more towards a L power rod, of which they did not produce such. So I settled on this one as I was looking to replace a Cabela's XML 7' ML rod that fishes well but had that butt weight system that weighs it down. The rod comes with the same 8 Fuji Alconite guides plus a SiC tip like the baitcasting models. I did use the rod to toss a lot of light 1/8 oz. lures, to include in-line spinners, poppers, and Yo-zuri Pins Minnow of including th

    Shimano Zodias - 2020

    Casting Rods: ZDS170MLG I was looking for a medium light casting rod and this one sort of fill the specs I was looking for. These rods retails for around $200 and getting a sale price on them makes them very attractive price point. So I took a feel to it in the store and liked it enough to purchase it. The rod has 8 Fuji Alconite guides plus a SiC tip guide. Split Grip EVA foam handles and a Ci4+ graphite reel seat with an aluminum locking nut. This particular 7' ML model is listed as a moderate action and has a G designation for some glass material in the blank. While I check

    Year round bass season

    There is a proposal to angling in the form of catch and release for bass year round in the works. This would be in addition to the current regulations that allow the limited harvest of both smb and lmb from late May until the season closes. I know that Michigan and Wisconsin both allow the specific targeting of bass for catch and release purposes before their traditional opening date. Michigan has done it for years, and Wisconsin just started it last year. I'm not real positive that this will pass, as I think MN is about a decade behind Wisconsin when it comes to these kinds of
  9. Hi, I already use squarebill cranking and am looking for a good normal Crankbait. What is the best one?
  10. I am new to ice fishing and the aitkin area. I am wondering what is the best colors and even jigs for walleye and crappies in the aitkin area. Its my 1st year of icexfishing. I've always been into open water before.
  11. Has anyone ever fished Nina Moose? I’ve heard it has good fishing, the trip would be mostly walleye and smallmouth.

    Mississippi River, pool 5a Texas Rig; Pit Boss with the heaviest weight I could find the second (pictured) Bass will probably be the biggest I catch all year. Just under 3 lbs. As much as I don't care for Pike. I had to show this hog my buddy pulled in this day. Northern Pike, weighing just over 10 lbs - look at that dragon head!
  13. The bass are starting to put their feed bag on! Check out this video below. We were near Park Rapids.
  14. After fishing every handful in years in Minnesota for 40 years, I'm FINALLY going to bring my wife up to Vermillion and see it for the first time. I'm chasing smallmouth and pike only (well, I'll gladly wrestle with a fooled Musky but not fishing for them). If the largemouth fishing is better than the smallmouths, we'd probably chase some of them too. Staying at Ludlows on the island. Boy I'd love ANY help with where to start my searching for the smallies and pike and what to key in on that time of year. I'll have basically two days to fish and will have my own bass boat. I am an

  16. Looking to bring my fly fishing into the metro. Anyone willing to share where they've gone, if at all?
  17. Recommendations for good kayak fishing in Minneapolis or St Paul (NOT a far drive, I live downtown but love the outdoors, so accessibility is key). Species doesn't matter a whole lot, love it all - bass, walleye, northern, musky. I'm aware of where I can get to with a kayak, but am curious if anyone is willing to share something a bit more precise from their personal experience in a kayak or boat. Thanks!
  18. Got out on Fathers day with the Kayak down the Mississippi River for some good ole Smallmouth Bass action. River was low which made a great float and the smallies were hungry! They just couldn't resist the wacky worm once again. We have such an amazing fishery here in MN, glad to call this state home. Enjoy.

    Where what when

    Headed to Brainerd Area July 9-11 coming from Colorado to visit friends. Well actually my girlfriend is I am tagging along to hopefully catch some fish with my flyrod And or jigs. Seeking advice on which lakes and tactics and anything else helpful to help maximize fishing time in your state. I will have access to a canoe on Hubert Lake. Any and all advice would be much appreciated if anyone is into flyfishing Stillwater and would like to go or show me some pointers on your home waters That would be awesome thanks looking forward to any responses.
  20. Nice spots that are difficult to get to for shore fishing but accessible in a kayak or canoe? I've exhausted the shore fishing options and got a kayak to get out there. Info appreciated for any lakes within the metro but am primarily focused on ones easily accessed WITHIN the city, not the distant suburbs. Thanks!
  21. How’s the bass fishing this year? Weeds? Water clarity?
  22. The Largemouths have been biting more and more on Lake O'dowd in Shakopee. I landed this dude at around 8:30 last night in about 4-7 feet of water using a Berkley plastic worm on a Texas Rig. Lots of fun catching him from my kayak The ruler is a little blurry, but I marked him at right around 17 inches.
  23. I live in the keewaydin 55417 area and the family craves fishing, a lot of the lakes around the area are a bit high pressured it seems as we've been out as far as Lake Elmo, Clear Lake, Vadnais and Lake Peltier but to no avail ( 2-3 hours of fishing with only 1 catch on some days ) on sport fishes. Is there a creek/river/backwater that's accessable for shoreline fishing that's got good fights? I'm down for kayaking too since we have a Jackson Tuna and a F&S Shadowcaster but we don't have an anchor so river kayaking is a no go ( I'm a fairly large lazy dude ) for me. Our next ta
  24. I am going to cuyuna in a coule weeks and I am planning do do a little bit of fishing but am not much of a trout fisherman. Do the northerns and bass in the mine lakes have any size to them?
  25. Smallmouth seem to have lockjaw... anyone figured them out and got on a good bite? Any tips for the Eastside ? Thanks in advance.. Tripp
