Just a note to everyone...there are currently NO bait stores open in the town of Baudette, and I was only able to find crawlers at Log Cabin Bait on Saturday, but dont rely on just that...they had a TON of sturgeon fishermen looking for bait. If you are coming from the east, Holiday gas station in Warroad had crawlers today.

Hey Frenzy, Mark and his sons all fished the Pike tourney this weekend so I'd guess that's why they were closed.<P>I seriously doubt that Steve at Log Cabin Bait will be running out of crawlers till fall.<P>Conoco in Baudette has bait as well.<P>fiskyknut

It's my understanding that Riverside is out of business.

Lip RIPPER!

Out of business? Wow! I can't believe it would be for a lack of business. The sign on the door said closed temporarily on Sat. when I went through there.

Boat pooling will be pretty popular by the looks of gas prices.<P>Let me know when you want to go. I'm looking forward to that trolling lesson.

I brought my boat up to the Angle to get wrenched on this weekend, so I'm out of commision for a while, till opener anyway.<P>Needed a new starter, and some other elecrical issues...<P>One of these years, I want to try that sturgeon thing, I've caught them by accident many times, but never set out for them.<P>I think a few of us are heading for some trout fishing this week if the ice cooperates.

Out of commision till opener... what? Is'nt that the end of June for you! If you want to give it a whirl I could maybe sneak you into a boat one of these days. I caught 11 last nite in an hour and a half, and others were kicking them better than us! Dnr guys are out there taking fish from anglers and tagging them too.....They were busy!

Fisky:<P>No he promised it to me by the May 15th opener.<P>I'd be open for a afternoon of sturgeon anytime. <P>I have a hard time understanding why anyone would want to keep one of those critters. A big one of those must have a lifetime supply of Mercury in them. There is much better table fare in my opinion.

Cool, when and where you guys gonna do the trout thing then? Do you smoke your lakers? YUM! I've eaten some Sturgeons that were smoked and it's not too bad, I much prefer Salmon and Trout. Would'nt want to eat gobs of it though thats for sure! As for preparing/eating them other ways? I know folks that steak them out and broil, grill, bake and even fry it, but I have'nt tried it!<P>Fisky

I'm sworn to secrecy on the Trout thing.<P>You think Musky guys are bad about being tight lipped... These trout guys are in a league all their own!

Hate to interrupt the conversation but 11 Sturgeon in 1 1/2 hours Fisky. That had to have been one heck of a time! Why do I live so far away?

Hanson, twas fun indeed. Sturgeon are pretty darn easy to catch at this time of year if you're on the right spot. All my fish that day were wee ones from 2 to 3 foot. The spot we fished only had a couple other boats on it and they were doing well too, the crew closest to us boated a 51 and 57. As long as you're not anchored over a swarm of Burbot the Sturgeons will find your bait!<P>fiskyknut

I bet those sturgeon are fun. I took a guided trip out to the Colombia River in Portland, OR when I visited my brother and we fished for the big fish out there. We fished for 2 days and caught over 2 tons of fish. The big ones run 7-9' long and up to 400 lbs. or so. Those were some nice 30 minute fights with big poles and 80lb test line. I think a Lake Sturgeon on 15 lb test would be a riot. Too bad I can't make it up now as I just took a few days off for turkey hunting. Happy fishin up there!

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
