Recommended Posts

ShadrapMan

I am planning on fishing a couple Lakes in the Mankato Area this weekend, wondering if anyone would recommend a good area bait shop. Thanks

I will have to check that out next time the shiners dissappear. I like the Madison Lake shop and the Bobber shop. Gander and Scheels are OK but who wants to carry the bucket all the way through the retail store there? Poor planning IMO

If you want good bait and have a plan then go to the bobber shop for the quick stop, if you need local lake info the Madison lake store is full of easy going friendly employees that are always more than willing to shoot the [PoorWordUsage] for a while.

I stopped at Walt's this morning for the first time. Very impressed. Got the standard amount of bait and a pop for the road and Walt gave me a card for what will eventually be free minnows. I'll definitely be back.

      Thanks Wanderer.  Fall fishing on Rainy Lake is special.

      Where on South Pine Island?   We live on South Pine Island East of Canfield Bay, and Bears roll through our property occasionally.  We have outdoor speakers hooked up to SiriusXM that we usually leave on to announce our presence.

      After getting a drink he went to lay down. Wasn't the least bit concerned with me. Eventually he put his head down and and obviously wanted to sleep so I moved on and let him get his rest.

      I use primarily daiwa Sealines and upgrade the drag disks to carbon fiber drag disks.   I do use Okuma Convector line counters on some of my salmon rods.  The magnas are just too cheaply built to hold up for salmon.  Probably just fine for walleye, pike, etc.

      That’s interesting.  I had not seen one either since we got our cabin in 2013, then caught this one on my webcam a few weeks ago.

      This is the first one that we've seen in the six years that I've been up here. This was a few weeks ago at a my neighbors man cave in the woods behind our place.

      I have 18 mallard decoys. 15 regular size and 3 super magnum size. 9 drakes and 9 hens. They all are rigged with lines/weights and carry mesh bag. Asking $35 or B/O. Located in St. Paul.

      Not sure how common bear sightings are on the lake but I spotted this guy on the South Shore of Pine Island getting a drink. This is now my phone wallpaper. I've seen lots of bears but this was my first Minnesota bear.
