I have a friend that lives in White Bear Lake he works out of his garage and does a real good job and doesn't charge an arm and a leg. I know it may be a long drive but he doesn't screw people ove if interested let me know on here.

Don's Used Outboads in Maple Grove. I put up the # before but it got deleted. Several FM'ers have went there and only have great things to say.

I highly recommend Don over there! He knows his stuff! And he is a super nice guy.

Robbinsdale marine. Very no nonsense. Fixed a 2 stroke there a couple of times when I thought it would be big money and spent under $1.00(yes ONE dollar)once, and under fifteen another time. They will shoot straight with you.

There is a old timer named Wayne that lives up in Brooklyn Park who got laid off from Crystal a few years back. His number is 763-425-4058. I found him by calling Crystal Marine and they referred me to him and I have been happy ever since. He works out of his garage and is pretty cheap. The downfall would be is he sets his own schedule so things might take a little longer (a few extra days) to get fixed.

Is Don pretty busy right now? I called yesterday and left a message but haven't heard back from him? I hate to hound the guy but I'd like to get some things resolved.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
