So the last three times to fosters I will catch trout like crazy until 10-11 a.m.. But then nothing until 3 to 4 p.m.. I checked around but can't find the trout. I havn't checked the deep hole is that where they're at? Sunday morning was awsome 9 trout between 8 and 10 a.m.. 17 inches was the bigest one and 15 was the smallest. No one wanted to go with me cause it was to cold. Wimps. There loss was my gain more fish for me. But where are they midday? Oh all fish where catch and release. Got a pic with my phone of the 17 incher. Nice hook nose but very pale colors...

I'm noticing the same thing at Foster's as you are Tip. There are trout all over and biting until 11am or so, then only an occasional trout swims by until 3 or 4, and the ones that come through don't seem interested in eating. I haven't done enough searching there to find where they go for lunch.

Thought about it on Saturday, but decided it was too cold to tear down, drill more holes and move. I got there about 10 and caught two trout (15 and 16") before 11:00 and missed another, then caught two more (14 and 15") after 3. I also got two largemouths (10 and 12"), a 9" crappie and a 6" bluegill, all released.

Weather should be much nicer this weekend, so maybe I'll do some checking from noon to 3, including the deep hole.

I also got checked by the CO there again on Saturday. That's twice in two weeks. In my whole life before this year I've only been checked three times.

It's good to know that they are out checking. I for one don't mind being checked at all. That is what they are there for, to make sure that everyone is following the law.

I have no problem with being checked either. Gotta have enforcement or there would be chaos out there. I actually wish the COs had a more visible presence than they do in the woods and on the waters.

I was just commenting on nearly doubling my lifetime total of being checked in two weeks is all.

Yea I got checked on a weds. last year only one out there. I was trying to catch dinner for the wife and inlaws. I had two on the ice a 15 and 16 1/2 needed one more for the meal. Co nocks on my shack comes in does his thing. We started chating when i set the hook on a 25 1/4 incher he smiled said hope you brought a camera. I did not and back down the hole it went. I would like to add it would have went back any way cause I'm the guy who would get caught so i don't chance it. From what he told me there is very little tickets given out on fosters. I'm sorry to say that suprised me. I guess theres more honest people out there than I thought.

During the summer I think there are more given out. You see alot of multiple line violations, and no liscense violations.

I grew up along the Mississippi River, where two lines are legal winter and summer. It still bugs me when on inland waters that I can only use one line in the summer. Bugs me badly, actually.

I guess I don't understand the regulation. As long as a guy isn't over his limit of fish and is close to and in control of both lines, why can't two be used? It would be nice to throw a crawler on the bottom or a minnow or spikes under a slip bobber while casting a crankbait or spoon at the same time.

I agree, Foster's is a great example of why 2 lines should be legal for inland waters as well. One line live bait under a bobber and a 2nd line casting hardware. I believe there was talk of 2 lines for open water in the legislature last year, but it got shot down.

From what I have heard, there is talk of it almost every year, and it gets shot down every year.

I want three lines in the winter like Wisconsin. Two tip ups and a jigging line nothing better. Other than putting out three tip downs for crappies. But two lines in the summer would be great. But it will not happen in this state any time soon.

How has the bite been? I was thinking about heading over that way on monday to give it a try. Do you need a trout stamp to fish it or just to keep trout? I am 100% catch and release.. I just love to tangle with trout.. Havent been over east in a few years fishing the streams, so just want to hook a trout or 2 and whatever else is biting...also any which side be a good bet to catch something?

Well it took four moves. But I beleave I figured out the miday trout bite. Alot of fish went by had alot of broken lines my budy is new to trout fishing he has to learn how to play them on 2 lbs. line. But I caught mine! Powerbait strike again. It will be hard for me to go trout fishing again with out it. But after today I think I'm done keeping trout till spring. Time to focus on the crappies.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
