What is the rule on treble hooks other than you cant use em? what if you are using a sweedish pimple with a treble cause as i read the regs it sounds as though an artificial lure is considered 1 hook and if so can you use live bait on that artificial

I use Pimples on Mille Lacs all the time with a Treble hook. Matter of fact the DNR stopped by the first weekend and didn't say a word about the hook. He looked at what I was using so he did know it was on there? I dont' think you will have any issues out there. But this is word of mouth not anything in writting. I would ask Kevin at Mac's to make sure.

Tight lines all.

In order to use a treble hook in Minnesota it must be part of an artificial lure. An artifical lure is considered one hook, so a sweedish pimple with a treble is perfectly leagal, baited or unbaited. It is illegal when there is just a plain treble hook attached to the line with bait. Some people add spinners just above the treble hook to make it part of an artifical lure.

Yep, as long as you have something on your rig so it can be considered artificial you're in the clear.

The spinner must be no more than 3 inches from the treble. This information was from a CO at the Sportshow a couple of years ago.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
