I was at the CR store on Sunday. Packed with people. I was kind of dissapointed that everything I was looking for was 5%-10% off only. Not worth it IMO.

Stopped in on Fri 3-27 in CR and they are still getting in stock, they increased to 40%, but it was hit and miss on what is a good deal. Firearms and ammo are now at 5%. not much ammo left, good gun selection.

Hit The coon Rapids store to day. Got a great deal on ladder stand and a few other items. Just about 50% off. Last one of that type but there are still others. Picked up a mess of lures that were any where between 30and 40 % off. Still have items in store that could be worth a visit. Store is picked over pretty good. It was nice to buy some things that I would probably not purchase except for the price being so cheep. Had fun anyway.

any word on which of the stores has the best deals??? St. cloud, coon rapids, woodbury???

Woodbury has practically nothing fishing related left. There was one spincast reel missing a handle, the only rod left in the joint. Everything else was on 4 shelves.

Most everything is gone from Coon Rapids as well. I went in the other day and got a dining room table filling pile of fly tying tools and equipment to start tying flies and jigs. I got enough to do at least 200 flies or jigs. Having a lot of fun with it so far. Got everything from vice to hackle and thread for 45 bucks.

Not much left though, everything is pretty well picked over. I might go back next week to see if they will discount a couple things a bit more if they are still there.

Yeah that's pretty much what I got, fly tying material. Did manage to find some shakie jigs and a pack of shakie worms, but that was about it.

I was at the store today and they are at 60% off. Guns and ammo are at 20-30% off. That is up from 50% when I was there on Tuesday. Fair amount of clothing and lots of odds/ends accessories.

Today (sunday) fishing/marine items are now 70% off. Example is Yamamoto plastics under $2. If you like cinnamon color there is plenty. All other items are 60% or more. If you wear medium sized clothing you can score big. Only 4 guns on display.

Just so everyone knows today (Wednesday) is the final day for Sportsmans to be open. If you own a business you can get display fixtures pretty cheap.

      This is a darn good practice!

      When I left there last Thursday, I had my boat as high as it would go on the boatlift. When boats would go by too close it would rock a little bit, so I tied the 4 cleats to the lift.  I might have to pull the darn thing off and park it around the corner at the neighbors dock while I'm there. With my rocky shoreline, I can't leave it tied to mine, it gets the crap beat out of it from boat waves. I'll have to pull it when I head home....that means removing the canopy on the lift, what a bummer. Who would of thought this could happen when the water was so low this spring!!!

      On the FB page, people are reporting more than 5" of rain from today's storm.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I saw the rain forecast and then zip-tied all of my dock pallets to the steel dock. Of course, I only do one side so that if the waves start popping the pallets up, they will just lift and fall back down instead of floating the entire dock up and down.

      Nice fish! Any rain total updates so far? Getting a bit nervous about our dock boards

      On the south end...   The walleyes are biting!  A great week of fishing with a combination of jigging and pulling spinners the go to methods.     Most walleye fishing is taking place between 21 - 24' of water.  When you locate fish on your electronics, either anchor up and jig or simply drift with spinners and crawlers (or troll if there is no wind) through the schools.   When jigging, gold combined with a bright color such as glow white, pink, orange or chartreuse is a hard combo to beat.  Use a fathead minnow, rainbow or a frozen emerald shiner.     When hooking the minnow, it is helpful to hook the minnow through the mouth and out the gills, pushing the minnow all the way up the hook to the jig head.  Re-hook the minnow as far back as possible.  This will catch the short biting fish.    Use a two ounce bottom bouncer with a two or three hook snelled spinner and a nightcrawler.  Some good blade colors are gold or gold combined with gold, orange, glow red or pink.   As happens most years in June, another good walleye bite fired up in various areas of the south shore in 5 - 10 feet of water.  Oftentimes, minnows spawning pulls in hungry walleyes creating some excellent fishing.     Some big walleyes over 30 inches being caught, along with the eaters, smalls and slot fish between 19.5 - 28 inches that must be released.   Anglers can keep a combined limit of 6 walleyes and saugers.  Up to 4 can be walleyes.  All walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28 inches may be kept. On the Rainy River...  The river is flowing with a strong current.  Consequently, fish are being found in areas just out of the current.     Jigging with a minnow is effective when you are on fish.  Otherwise, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits along shoreline breaks against the current in 6 - 12' of water is producing a mixed bag of walleyes, saugers, pike, smallmouth bass and an occasional crappie.   The Lake Sturgeon season opens July 1st.     The river is a great summer option with 42 miles of navigable river and many nice boat ramps.   Up at the NW Angle...  The fish are snapping up at the Angle.  Another great week of fishing amongst the 14,552 islands in these parts.     Minnesota waters are producing nice walleyes. Some fish being found off of deeper structure.  Some nice opportunities are shallow based on forage, hatches, minnows spawning, etc. Pulling spinners with shiners or crawlers has been effective.  When you are on "a spot on a spot", jigging is the best technique.     Trolling crankbaits is working well and is a nice way to cover water and put your lure in front of a lot of fish.     In addition to walleyes, saugers, pike, jumbo perch, crappies, pike and smallmouth bass are also in the mix.   Muskie anglers caught some nice fish this past week.  No specific pattern as the cold spring has fish still settling into summer.  The lake boasts a healthy population of fish, many in excess of 50 inches.

      I'm catching them on bobbers and leeches.  Try fishing smaller side bays on the edge of some rocks but not in the rocks.  Fish in about 6 - 10 feet of water.  The bite starts about 7:30 pm till 9:00 pm.  I also noticed a few may flys hatching in the areas I'm getting success.  I think they're coming into the bays in the evening to feed on the mayflies.

      Generally I agree with your assessment Gimruis. Nobody likes a nanny state, but the harsh reality is that without rules and regulations far too many people take advantage of limited natural resources. There are those that will never follow the rules regardless, as well as those that don't recognize that as more people catch more fish, we all need to keep less.   I've eaten a few SM in my life, and they taste just as good as a walleye or northern. However, I would bet that 80% or closer to 90% of all people catching SM practice catch-and-release. Therefore I am not sure what a slot is going to do in this specific situation. Maybe the DNR has some good theories but I doubt the main culprit is the number of large SM being kept for food. I assume that it is a contributing factor but not the main one.
