spring is a busy time of year with grad parties and weddings etc.

I am close by so you guys pick a date that works for the majority. most likely I'll be available.

Not to complicate things, but if the campground situation isn't accommodating for everyone, I would consider hosting the area GTG at my "retreat" on little Jessie. I've never been at the campground, so I'm not sure of all it's ammenities and camping spots (for those that stay overnight).

I have mowed areas that would fit a few trailers (3-4 depending on size) and other areas to fit tents. Nothing fancy, but I have running water in my place--with an outside hose, outside electric outlets (4), large fire pit area, separate 14x14 screen room with electricity, gas grill, and my place can "house" a few extra people that decide to stay overnight. Those only thing needed would be to order a portable pot for the weekend. I also have some elbow room from my neighbors so we are not right on top of them.

At this point the weekend of July 26th works for me regardless of the GTG location.

it seems like the timing , and not really the location seem to be the hang up here.

thanks for the consideration tho.

looks to me like pretty much every weekend in the near future is screwed for at least someone.

as stated earlier, i am pretty open, so when any body settles on a date, I'll just go with the flow

Lisa, don't take any of this personally.

I have organized many an event from large to small and no matter what, I have learned one thing, you can't please every body.

all you can do is try to optimize the opportunity to get together.

I have an open invitation to go to canada that weekend.

If I can afford to do it, I'm gone. if not, I'll be here and I will see who ever can make it.

I agree Dave. Lisa just carve that date in stone and let it ride! That is rodeo weekend in Effie and we usually camp at Clubhouse that weekend, but maybe we'll save some $$$ and I'll hit the get together on the 26th and the rodeo on the 27th. Like a wise man once said, "You can't please all of the people some of the time and you can't please some the people all the time".

      work the area between Daisy and Banana Island, it's near where you're at. There are three hazard markers there, just be careful with your lower unit   There are plenty of Pike spots in Daisy Bay - study the map and follow the wind. 8-10' breaklines where the wind is blowing into. Look for mid-lake structure that support Ciscos and Perch.

      Franconia or Somerset landings. Quite a bit of fishable shoreline at both spots. Boomsite wayside is fishable too, but there’s always way too many people down there, and too much boat traffic for my liking. 
    • ozzie
      Got a report that my Father inlaw was out on the chain to see what he could find for Walleyes and said he landed a 18" and a 27.5" on the westside of the chain before the storms were rolling in.  I hadn't talked to him but in this particular area I know we usually will use jigging raps instead of live bait due to the fact that the perch devour any live bait you put down.

      Welcome to MN! While i'm not familiar with the Eagan area I would suggest using the MN DNR recreation compass. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/compass/index.html  some searching on the link above will not only provide you fish creel surveys, but lake maps and water clarity reports. I've spent countless hours cyber scouting lakes. Good luck!
    • Barbelboy
      yeah, with larger suckers i just pre-cut the bait and keep in a little cooler so it stays fresh. I usually use a treble hook and chicken liver, but when i use cut bait a circle hook is my go to.

      Fished a small lake up by Togo this weekend. Just a bit in mornings and evenings. First nights crappies but a walleye never bit. Watched a beautiful thunderstorm at sundown that just scraped us a few minutes.

      Just cut the head off first.
    • Daniel Hayes
      looking to try cut bait for catfishing. Usual use nightcrawlers or stink bait, but am looking to filter the Rockbass and small cats.  I'm gunna buy a couple decoy suckers and use. But am wondering how to humanely kill and cut up? Or do I just cut umm alive while flopping like a serial killer?
    • Rivergroup
      Thanks guys, I'll keep watching.  Can't wait to get there again!
