I haven’t trout fished in 15 years, lol. Although I grew up literally across the road from a trout stream. I liked small inline spinners, trout magnet and kernel corn. Those three worked good for me

I never use live bait as I find it to be less productive and less fun to fish with. Small rapala floating minnows or husky jerks, rebel craws or frogs, small mepps or panther martin spinners. If they’re wild trout, dark natural colors. If they’re stocked trout, color doesn’t matter.

Just meaning trout  waters that have natural population of trout that are born and grow in the water their entire life.  Green pumpkin, browns, watermelons, black, silver/ blue, some orange. Colors those fish are used too. Insects, Minnows, crawdads etc.

Wild trout are more cautious, and basically smarter. I rarely do well with flashy or bright lures on streams with wild trout. But when I fish designated trout lakes up north, it usually doesn’t matter what color I use. But I’ll give the flashy stuff a slight edge.

      Fishing Ottertail this past weekend we used my sons boat with a Humminbird Helix 9 Si/Di - Follow the Contour GPS. I also put my Vex SonarPhone one side mount which links to the Boating app. I recorded a track on the boating app with the Humminbird following a 16 ft. contour. As you can see on the Boating App track with Sonar video, ls off a fair distance from the Bird depth track. The boating app is a great tool for planning, searching fishing areas and fair on  GPS contours. Both Humminbird and Boating use the Glonass GPS system so no differance between long/lat location.

      I went on an adventure along the Minnesota river south shoreline, picking up trash and encountering some critters.  😄

      Not sure if anyone else saw this but the statewide pheasant report was released by the DNR yesterday and its up 42% statewide.  Its the highest numbers in over a decade.  A mostly mild winter and a dry spring likely accounted for lower mortality and a good hatch.  There will be no shortage of birds...or hunters.

      Nice little unit that I just removed from a used boat recently bought. Everything seems to look and operate perfectly. Includes graph with mounting bracket, battery cable (fused) and transducer with mount. Buy new elsewhere for $169 or here used for $50. Can ship if you cover the cost.
       
      Here is the mfg description:
       
      The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder, which includes an 83/200 broadband transducer, transmits sonar to track the presence and movement of targets beneath your boat. When you use this device, you’ll know when you’re in the right spot. This innovative fishing aid lets you enjoy your sport with a new level of confidence, even when you venture into new and unfamiliar waters. Its advanced electronics perform well in a wide variety of settings, including lakes, rivers, and marine coastlines.The 4.3-inch LED screen offers an impressive clarity in part because of the built-in noise rejection technology. This specially designed, high-resolution LED color display weighs 3.4 pounds and measures 3.8 by 6.6 by 2.2 inches, making it a compact finder that is perfect for those with kayaks or other small vessels.This design includes all of the features of the HDI Series but with the addition of special sonar technology. This model includes GPS and chart plotting capabilities. It also features a detailed U.S. map with high-definition mapping of more than 3,000 lakes, rivers, and coastal areas down to 1,000 feet. The addition of CHIRP sonar allows you to identify underwater targets more quickly. It also allows you to see targets at higher boat speeds, saving you time.This lightweight and compact finder includes advanced electronics commonly found in larger, more expensive models. The one-thumb operation of the page selector menu gives you fast and easy access to all the fish finder’s features. You’ll save time and get excellent results with Advanced Signal Processing, which reduces the need for manual adjustments. You’ll view the bottom detail, lake structures, and fish that you’re looking for more quickly and precisely. You can also avoid obstacles like submerged branches and rocks thanks to this device. TrackBack technology allows you to go back over the sonar history to check lake structure and fish targets for future reference. The TrackBack feature allows you to save a waypoint, eliminating the need to circle back and retrace your path. This model also supports DownScan imaging.The unit runs on 12-volt DC power. The CHIRP technology operates between 83 kHz and 200 kHz. The DownScan imaging system works with a 455/800 kHz transducer. The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder can be set to a useful range of fishing modes. The Conventional sonar can be kept in General Use Mode or set to modes for fishing in shallow water, deep water, brackish water, fresh water, or clear water. There is also an ice fishing mode. These settings can help you see in water depths ranging from 60 feet to 1,000 feet.

      Dr. gave  the OK for a weekend fishing next Friday, heading to Ottertail. Using Sons Tracker with Helix 9 SlDl + follow the Lakemaster map contour. Will not only improve ability to find fish along with tracking a specific contour automatically. I’ve always wanted to do a detailed contour compare between Navionics and Lakemaster. I use the Navionics Boating app linked to the Vex SonarPhone on one of two tablets. I can record tracking, depth, speed and how well the track follows the Lakemaster contour. My second tablet I’ll record FishSmart Lakemaster tracking contour which is the exact same Lakermaster map as on my son’s 9 SiDi. This past week I built a ¾” PC pipe side mount height adjustable transducer holder as we didn’t want to drill more holes in Sons boat. I put the Vex SonarPhone in a ammo box with battery or external power. Looking forward to some Fall Fishing.

      Been a long time since I spent on a couple years on Big Fork River and then with kayaks.
      Can someone give me advice on what stretches if any I can use my V14 Tracker
      with 20 horse, though I can go with my trolling motor.  Back injury prevents kayaking.
       
      Looks like above Big Fork and a couple areas below Big Falls might work if there is
      enough water.
       
      Thanks for any help.  This is back up to 3 Canada trips that got cancelled.

      I've been looking for how to target crappies now, I've been getting bluegills in 8-10 around weeds but have been really struggling to find crappies. Anyone having any luck with crappies?

      @Skunked Again Billy won’t be happy that I forgot one of the iconic stops on the lake!  Thanks for including Glenwood.

      We were out yesterday evening.  It was plenty warm for sure.  Bugs not bad by us.   Isaac saw 2 does 3 fawns and an 8 pt.  He harvested a doe in his first ever sit with the bow. Eli saw a doe and a fawn, passed. I saw watched squirrel's.  
    • ANYFISH2
      Isaac was successful on his first sit ever with a bow.   He has worked hard to be able to hunt with his bow this year.  He kinda shoots better than dad right now. Proud of this little man.

      Yah, she’s a bit much.  We’re forecasted to get gusts to 40 today.  My SIL was out yesterday and said the skeets were horrible.   One friend got a doe in WI last weekend and cooler aged her for a couple days.  He said the meat turned out great.     That’s what I’m getting ready for too.  
    • SkunkedAgain
      Good point about walking into Tower from the East Two. I often forget about that.   You could also go to Glenwood Lodge at the east end of Pine Island. It's mostly beer and pizza with snacks, at least the last time that I was there. As far as I know, what Skibo and I posted are all of the locations on or near the lake.   There are also multiple shore lunch sites on the lake. They all have beautiful views, a picnic table, fire ring, and latrine. Bring your own lunch, or better yet, bring the fixings to cook up your fresh catch from the lake.

      No , my boys deer hunt, but I just waterfowl.
