Anyone use the access at Trout Lake on the Whitefish Chain? If so have you had issues with turning around in the parking lot due to the inspector parking in the no parking zone that is marked off with yellow lines? I get into arguments every time I am at that access because the inspector feels they have the right to park in an area that is not to be parked in. It is becoming annoyingly fun for me to get on them and educate them on where to not park! This has to be one of the worst accesses in the state when it comes to traffic, space, and inspectors. Many times they have an inspector there that will give you a 15 minute lecture on invasives even though you have heard his speech before!!! Power trip and then some!!!! I respect most inspectors I come into contact with, but WOW are some just go a little overboard on their inspection. I have to laugh my ass off when the inspector runs us over about water in our livewell (talking about drops of water around the drain ring) saying we could get fined $800 if we leave the access like that, yet what do the inspectors say to the wake boat that pumped in 1000 gallons of water into it and most certainly cannot dispel all the water and an inspector cannot see!! Not sure what it is about this particular access but I have had the worst experiences there and do not have similar experiences elsewhere, so I just had to ask if other see this too.
Hi all have a day of Thursday with the wife would really like to get some cats on the chain are they spawning now shallow? try around the bridges?, Was there on Saturday after the rain got 1 kitty cat that was it. any guidance would be great.
Since my leukemia diagnostic my son has been a champion helping out. I asked him was there anything I could do for him. He said an underwater camera would be nice. I ordered parts, improved camera resolution, faster camera movement (20 RPM to 30 RPM motors), USB phone charge port, aluminum verses plastic case. Only took 2 weeks to build. His only comment was awesome, bring on some ice, when I gave it to him.
White pulleys, mounting frame fabricated out of Walmart cutting boards, green drive belts are 6mm round polyurethane belt. 2 remote camera controllers.
While the grandkids were here we got pizza from the landing. Good thing we got two for the four of us. Their 12 inch pizzas were about 8 or maybe 9 inches. And over baked on top of that. Pushing 20 bucks each. I hope the rest of the menu isn't as disappointing as those pizzas.

Well I'm up until Wednesday and got out for the first time this afternoon. I went right to one of my favorite lead core spots and it was game on. Alot of 15-16" fish. I was running 26-28 feet. Multiple colors of cranks worked. Shads and flickers both worked. Lots of trollers out. Probably the most I've ever seen on a day.
Some of the lakes where the otter tail river leaves, offer some shore fishing areas, both on the river and the lake. I caught a few hammer handle pike, but there were sunnies swimming all over the place.
