Hello all,

I am looking for some additional volunteers for Trout Day.

I could really use both fly-fishing and spin fishing assistance. There is a portion of Trout Day where every one hits the stream. There are always new folks needing help with the basics.

If interested, please let me know here.

Could use a kettle grill or two as well for the weiner roast.

Thanks

Jim W

Although I love the north country, I do miss fishing the SE MN streams for trout and smallmouth.

Especially miss Trout Day and an opportunity to share my passion with kids and their parents. If you grew up fishing lakes as I did and streams are new to you, this is a great opportunity to see what stream fishing is all about. If you're not into fishing so much but your kids have shown interest, this is also a wonderful way to get them started.

What I really like about fishing smaller rivers is the simplicity. Hip boots, a rod and reel and a pocket tackle box with a half dozen lures will get the job done compared with a boat, motor, trailer, trolling motor, depth finder, gps, bait, landing net, PFD's, cushions, anchor, etc. to fish bigger water. Oh ya.... my tackle box in the boat has about 50x as much tackle too!

Be a long drive for you eh Wes?

Wish you could make it.

Less than two weeks out folks.

Please remember, all need to register for the new waiver.

Also, seminars will start 9:00am sharp so please arrive earlier for coffee rolls, juice AND, to register for the day and the free door prizes.

****Could still use some volunteers (can never have too many)*****

Volunteers usually aren't worked too hard.lol Just need moderate knowledge of stream fishing, spin or fly fishing.

****also could use a couple more grills for the weiner roast****

Have any questions or would like to volunteer, post here or stop in Culver's and ask for Jim.

Even though I won't make it down, the sportfishing club here does a kid's fishing day a few weeks later at the local trout pond. So guys like you do inspire others to come up with events that help ensure the future of the most enjoyable sport on the planet. Hope it's a fun day for all -:)

Thanks for doing what you do Jim! I wish I could have been there. Hopefully the itchweed isn't real high by the time I get down for another walk.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.
    • Mike89
      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
    • IceHawk
      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
