Fishinhole,

I sure hope that we lay into them like you guys did. It must have been quite the trip. Do you know if Lonnie has rattle reels in the house, or do we need to bring our own?

Satch,

We may have to talk when we get up there and swap ideas for what's working. We will be driving a little dodge dakota (black), and we will have a white 4dr Chevy with a wheel house. Stop on by.

A little Dodge? The only reason we are taking the little Dodge, which is a four door, is because TMT has a minny van. Yeah that's right a mini van. TMT actually gave me his ball and hitch from his truck when he sold it!?!? That was our first sign of many. He has been domesticated ever since! TMT I just want my old river fishing buddy back! Will you do me a favor TMT, will your reach into your wifes purse and grab your ball and hitch secure it to your body before we head up to Red Lake?

I know, I know, it makes us feel better when we can call it something a little more man-ly!

Good Luck!

I have seen guys(??) in Subaru Outbacks catch fish up there so at least we know that size doesn't matter. Good to hear Lonnie's houses can be productive and we won't have to worry about getting "Spider"ed \:\)

You Jordan river rats are just too hard on each other. Not like us Shakopeons, who get along with everyone.

We caught everything on #4 red & white hooks. Most all fish were caught at night one morning we had a good bite. The day was slow but the refreshment tasted great. Their is plenty of room to party and catch fish trust me i am still recovering!!!!!

Great report!! Now we'll just have to get some white paint for bro44's red hooks. Were the biters coming on ones that were a striped pattern or just half white/half red? Anything to help beat this cold front!! Sounds like we'll be plenty satisfied just staying in one of Lonnie's shacks.

HeavyD,

I agree. I think Friday may be the only day I get mobile! Saturday is going to be cold. You and Bro44 may have to spoon to stay warm out in the trap! \:Dgrin.gif

RelatorBoy,

Lonnie mentioned that there are 4 rattle reels in each house.

Some friends and I are headed out to Northbound on the 17th. I see they have gas lights in their houses, how bright do these get, would it be worth bringing a battery to power the 12v lights in these houses?

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      65-66 in Norwegian yesterday and 63 in Niles.

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      59 crossing Daisy Bay Friday night. 67 in Big Bay this afternoon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up. 
    • Squirrelhawke
      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.
