First a repot: Headed up to West Rush yesterday, a few fish were beig caught. Most of what I saw, and caught were the 3 to a pounders, with a few 10s here and there.

Now the main part of the post. There were a group of 5 ..... well I don't even know what to call them. Sitting on the road between the two channels in the park. Truck parked right in the middle of the road. Swilling beer, and passing a bottle back and forth. Every sentence uttered had to have at least one F**k this or F**kin that. It didn't matter to them that the were several women fishing on either side of them.

Several racial comments were made.. just loud enough so the Mung fisher people down the shore could here them. Women, kids, didn't matter to these He-Men, they just kept on and on, with conversations about their wifes floppy t#ts, etc. etc. etc.

My point is, the parks and waters of this state are there to be enjoyed by all, and if you can't seem to conduct yourselves with a modicum of decorum, sit your hind end down in front of the tube and watch more Cops episodes, you'll most likely even get a glimpse of a family member!

Made me embarassed to be a white american male.

Hello Labrat, I think I observed the same group; some people for various reasons are not civilized. Lets not let the few rune it for the majority. All people, whatever their race, beliefs, sex in MN are privilege to be allowed to enjoy the outdoors. A privilege that each person pays to maintain - in the form of taxes and license. Over all I find that majority of fishing people are decent folks. Unfortunately those people were not good example of American White Male.

Its a shame there are people like that, but if you don't like their actions MOVE. You or the women weren't being forced to fish by them. It is 2002 i've heard plenty of women that can swear like drunken sailors. That park is big enough for everyone. Those men have every right to act like rednecks if they want, that doesn't mean you have to be their friend. You should go to church and pray for those rednecks. Sounds like they need saving.

If they were under the influence, they do NOT have every "right" to act that way, or any other way -- there are laws against public inebriation. Someone should have called the police.

Incidentally, these situations are potentially too explosive and dangerous to try to handle without police. Don't try to be a citizen hero.

Labrat,
I to was there yesterday, from 9am to 6pm and the fishing was almost dead. I did managege to get two big crappies and oone of those slipped out of the bottom of the basket. So I had one nice crappie and some sunnies that I decided to release. I think almost all were caught before noon. After that I think I went a couple hours without a bite.
As for the goups of rude and crude people, which ones where you talking about? I saw three or four groups that would have fit your description. One of them had a little boy about 4 and MAN!, do I feel sorry for his future! People like that just leave me picking up my jaw!

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
