This is a free seminar to attend and come with questions! All of the anglers frequent the Twin City area lakes, as well as other lakes across the region, and will be ready to equip you with new ideas and tips!

I took advantage of your vidio On core presentation. Love it Im able to see what I would have missed. All good information even for a old guy like me.

What I noticed 1st and I think is so cool is the fact a women is included in the UPL. Which gave thought to the future that perhaps there will eventually be a women VS Men tourny for some internal friendly competition.

I havent been out much this winter. Used to be Id ice fishn from 1st ice to pushing the boat thru rotten ice at ice out. I was hoping there would have been more information on the local lakes. Peltier. ? is as dead Ive encounterd.?

Medicine lake is where I lived as a baby..... Dad would tie the cane poles to the 59 Chevy and we'd head to rent a boat. Caught alot of weeds in those days. Which brings up the interesting issue of fishing the weeds, inside out side....15 feet out to 17 feet, during the winter. Here I am a basin fisherman. Im mostly a crappie guy but will chase the gills if the lake has size. 8 inches seems reasonable. All Id seen on the Medicine lake post were smaller crappies and not alot of mention of gills. You all proved differently with the fish size.

If I have apoint to make, its you guys and gals are pretty good at what you do.Must be alot of fun. Its interesting to note the areas of sectretive notation that you divulge that mabey makes one team outfish the other under especially tough conditions. I agree the accuracy using a gram scale to be sure the weight difference vs length difference is a winners edge being its all about weight.

When I hit a lake again, Ill be bit of a better fisherman for watching your vidio.

Good Job. Gals Vs Guys tourney in the future. ?

      I was not going to go yesterday but the weather was too nice to stay home. Fished about 5 hours but only got 4 bass and one pike. Not one hit on my go-to jigs & plastic! I don't recall that ever happening over 5 hours. Got a few bass on surface lures (and the pike) and a few on cranks. Water was almost 6 degrees warmer than the day before. The nights finally stayed above the low 40s so that has to have helped.   I have been marking very few fish in water less than 30 feet. I rarely fish deeper than that.   Got desperate a few days ago and went down to Pelican. Not much better down there. A few crappie and dink pike and about 6 nice bass.   Headed north of Red Lake, Ontario in a week. Hope things are going better way up there.

      My wife and 2 Labs are boat camping on the east side of the Brule Narrows this week. We have been here dozens of times, but with late spring, I am wondering what patterns are working for the smallies and walleyes. Thanks 'Pout

      I believe @Rick raises them.   But I don’t think he has a dual sport bike....

      Got my personal best tonight for this lake....27.5"!  My son got a 24, we also got a 17, 20.5", 22". Same area as last night. Fun couple of nights on this beautiful lake.

      Cobra, welcome back.  To bad no replies in almost 3 years to your inquiry.  Their beautiful dogs but there must not be many owners of them on here?  🤔   Like I have been asking for about 4 years if there are any Dual Sport bike owners on this site?  😉

      I haven't been on the website in a long time so long delayed reaction. Sorry   I do have an English Pointer and I live in Longville. My old dog passed away a few weeks ago at almost 15 years old!!! I still have my young dog with special bloodlines. His father came from the last vial of Guard Rail semen. So to have a grandson of a Hall of Fame dog that died in the early 80's is very rare.

      This weather is making it tough to get out and pinning down a consistent bite.  Wind had blown out if every imaginable direction in the past 5 days along with frequent storms keeping us off the lake.  With that said this us what I know.   Walleyes are still going at night on cranks in 5-8 fow.  During the day can be found on 16-25 fow and are biting on crawlers,  leeches and shiner minnows.   Perch are still on flats in 4-8 fow and you'll need to sort to get the nice ones.  Sunfish and crappies are still in the reeds in Allen's Bay and Kitchi.   Water temps have been up and down a lot this week. Currently we have 67-70 degrees in the spots I fished yesterday.
