We are heading up this upcoming weekend and was wondering how people were doing out of Sportsman's houses. Any suggestions for tackle? I have always done well on gold or pink but I have heard a lot about the stopsign. Is it really worth picking up a couple?

Just got back from LOTW yesterday. Numerous things worked at different times, so throw the whole tackle box at them. Some of the things that worked best for us.....and these are all deadsticking.....jigging was NOT working.

-Stop sign with a whole fathead

-Glow red front/gold back Demon with whole fathead

-pink hook with whole fathead

We caught fish on other things too, but these were the most consistent.

      Weekly Metro Area, MN fishing report and tips for June 16. Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's out there! A fun week, but as always, we had to deal with some aspects of weather! Hopefully everyone caught a few fish and it's nice to stumble across some fun patterns...   Metro Area MN Fishing Reports for June 16 - VIDEO - CLICK HERE   Enjoy!

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      Similar to eyeguy, I fished when I was young with my parents. At some points it was about trying to catch big fish for me, now days it's for relaxing and teaching kids to fish.

      Just curious if your from Canada or the US? When you say 2 man limits of 17 inch fish every day, just wondering which limit, Canadian or US visiting Canada limit. Thanks for the report!

      Parents fished and I started very early in life. I fish because it's fun.

      Hard to find a lake up the trail not chock-full of invasive smallmouth. Slip bobbers and leeches, and cast towards shoreline rock piles.

      Why do you fish? We all have different goals when we go fishing. Some of us want a meal of fish to eat. Some of us just want to relax. Most of all, we want that "TROPHY" catch. We want something to brag to our friends about, the "Master Angler".
