It'll still be plenty crowded on a Friday. A lot of people don't work fridays and then there are the guys that are laid off and people that are staying in the area on a fishing trip. If you want to have it a little more quiet, go on a weekday like Tues or Weds. and fish either early in the morning or stay there till dark. And yes, with less pressure, the fish will bite better and you will be able to fish more spots.

I'll be making my first run down there for the year tomorrow(wednesday), going solo since most people I fish wish have normal jobs and only can fish on weekends, hopefully I'll be able to find some fish without all the crowds around.

Good Luck Norsky. I like the picture you have in your avatar. I have a springer of my own and she loves to get after those rudys. grin.gif

To get to the store take 61 south into town and turn right at Perkins. Go underneath the bridge and where the first building on your left past the Super 8.

I'll be here at 6 am.

You guys might need a larger minnow scoop to keep them customers coming back. Just a little constructive criticism.

I was down at Ike's Sunday morning and bought minnows. I don't much pay attention to how many minnows are in the scoop, I fish alone and never go through a whole scoop anyway, but I will say this:

Those were some of the liveliest and spunkiest fatheads I've had in awhile!

And they stayed that way all day!

So my two cents are, even if the scoop is smaller (I have no reason to doubt Norksy), I personally prefer quality over quantity.

Norskey - sorry you feel the way you do. When I scoop I try to get as many as I can in the scooper. My dad tells all of us to get as many as you can so we please the customers.

Give me a call and when you stop buy again I'll give you two FREE scoops. Just ask for Shawn.

Thanks for the critisim.

The two scoops I bought yesterday morning was more than fare. Minnows were lively and last all day.

Thanks. grin.gif

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
