Hi Dave! Hope things are going well with you!

The family and I are up on vacation at Moose Lake this coming week. We will be up this Saturday to Cedarwild. Are you available for any fishing time?

I still have your cell #'s but don't have your e-mail address anymore. Hoping you're available this weekend or anytime next week?

Thanks!

Hi Dave!

Stop on by on Sunday when you wake up! We'll be in the same cabin we were in June. I'll call you or stop by if I don't see you by 9 or 10 am or so on Sunday.

I'll let Nathan know you have a long net. He'll be happy ;> ). If you know of any lakes in the area going for crappies to take the kids to next week, let me know. Might as well not post tho', I won't be on the forum again until we get back.

Hope to see you!

Hey Dave!

Tried that lake a couple of more times this week. Interesting lake. Went out with Nathan a couple hours before dark and dragged jigs and minnows at the 18-20 foot mark. Caught northerns to about 4 pounds, bass to 3 pounds and one 25 inch walleye, all released.

The other two nights I tried after dark I caught one more 15 inch crappie on one night and on the other lost two of the bad boys at the boat trying to land them by hand (the kids had somehow lost our net). It was okay, I would have released them anyway but would have liked to have had them in the boat to measure.

You have to work hard to get them out there, but the size makes the hunt worth it.

e-mail me and I can fill you in with more details. Also see my post in the crappie/sunnie forum. We had great fishing all week.

Good seeing you again! Say hi to your family. Take Care!

How were things at Cedarwild? Is Al still doing OK? My family has vacationed there for 28 years. Just curious. Thanks for your response.

Hi Lars!

Things at Cedarwild were great. Al seems to be doing well. My family has known Al almost as long as you and it's always great to be up there. The kids love Al and the heated pool.

Hope his good health holds out for years to come!

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
