I know Laib had it set up before that you could drop your gun off at one of the big outdoor stores in st cloud and he would pick it up from there and drop it off there don't know if he is still doing this but might save you some driving

Blackotter,

I would suggest alhman's down in morristown they are one of the best places in the state. their shop is a 3rd generation shop and I personally know Mike who is the third generation alhman he now owns the shop but his father larry(second generation) is still involved behind the scenes. they are about a 2 hour drive from st cloud but it is well worth the trip. they have over 5000 guns in stock at any given time.

Jpettit,

check with alhman's they have stuff you would never expect. I think they can make new custom stocks too but it would be pretty pricey.

There is a gunsmith shop near Winstead (1hr south of SC). It is a father/son shop. I have seen some of the old guns they have restored. They do a lot of work on cleaning up guns that have not been properly stored.

The name is Habisch.(320)485-GUNS(4867) or [email protected]

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
