Three days and we will be there we can't wait. Hearing that gold is the color right now. Is there anything else we should know before we head that way? What about shiners can we find those up that way?

We found tight to the bottom was key 2" off is all we were had to watch bobber close when it went to bottom set the hook I didn't have any luck on the suspended ones some looked for a while but not one hit it. Will keep trying though cause a buddy got a 29.5" reeling up to one last year.fatheads worked for us good luck

We just returned from a great trip from the bay and had great success with live shiners on a plain red or blue hook. I was also able to jig up several with a gold tear drop jig tipped with either a live or dead shiner. Live shiners can be bought in Baudette at the Lucky Bait shop just before town.

how much does lucky charge? i bet he counts them also.thats why we dont go there anymore.fatheads worked great for us.i bought some frozen shiners just to use the heads for our jigging stick but most of our fish came off the dead stick.

Master, you should be able to get shiners at Adrians if you don't have any then you get here.

Chris. Bait price does become an issue when you have different people coming up every weekend using your house, bait, propane, ect. Maybe it isn't a big deal for you, but don't assume everyone has your cash to burn.

price on minnows does matter.the last time i went to luckys he charged me $13 for 2 scoops = 24 minnows.i rather spend the 8 bucks on 2 scoops of chubs = many dozen and spend my extra $5 at the bar in the resort.money isnt a problem for me i come there 14 times a season.just dont like getting ripped off is all.

      Some of the lakes have roads park and walk it what I will be doing

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.
    • monstermoose78
      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
