Pat, I had almost an inch from Tuesday night and about 3/4 inch last night. Hopefully our lakes got a little more than I did in Mankato.

Seemed pretty hit-or-miss for various areas with the region. Ah well, various watersheds should help bring up most of the lakes.

All of the Faribault chain of lakes have come up nicely! Still could use more rain to get em up even more. Looks like another round today of rain.

One can even launch a larger boat in French now without waders. :))))

I don't have a rain gauge but hoochie-mamma did it ever pour buckets here in SW MN yesterday. I was standing in the garage, beverage in hand, watching the show.

Everything here was under water. Round 2 will be here in aboot 10 minutes.

Round 2 is here and heading your way fellas.

I cut the top offa PBR can and put it in the driveway to get some kind of measurement. It washed away. I'll have to empty another and try again but the total will not be accurate.

I'll keep trying until I get it right. wink

2.5 inches from midnight to about 4am. That of course does not count what came during the day. I believe close to 3/4 as my gauge was at 1/2 and a bit later, it tipped over from the wind.

1.6" saturday and saturday night. I have all my field work done for now and it just penneys from heaven for me. cool Alot of people don't understand how dry we are, you dig down 5', its still dry and the aquafirs (sp) are drawn down to record low levels. Thats what the black specks that are in the well water are showing up from. we need more rain.

      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.
    • kfk
      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.

      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.
