That's alright Beaver, Minnesotan's (in most cases) don't understand Husker fever...

We don't have any gopher fever here and it sucks.

I was at Joe Sensors a couple years ago, for one of the Nebraska games (they sponsor Minnesotans for Nebraska), and the gopher/Penn st game was on. Penn state was ranked #1 at the time and the gophers were pulling their biggest upset since '77(?) when they beat Michigan 16-0, and Sensor's didn't even have the volume up?

This state (I've been here for 30 years, originally from Lincoln) pisses me off.

I went to Florida State for a year and Saturdays were ELECTRIC... Everyone cheered on their favorite team. They were either a canes fan, a bulldog fan, a gator fan, or a noles fan, but they wore the colors, waved the flags, honked the horns (yeah yeah, I said honked the horn) drank the beer and had a blast...

Here in gopher land... you could walk into any sports bar, on any given fall saturday, and they can't even tell you who the gophers are playing. Hell, even the gopher fans, who are going to the game can't tell you the nickname of the opposing team. N. Louisiana Tech (who)....

Purely a Vikings town... but I miss the college atmosphere. I'll blame it on not having a campus stadium...

Go Huskers.

Until you have lived in Kansas, you guys can't complain! There is something not right about a bait bucket filled with chicken guts. Mike (a native gopher....otherwise known as a loon-a-tic).

      So I am also moving to the Lino lakes area in just 3 weeks and fishing is the only thing I would like to do… fishing buddy’s or any good spots would be appreciated

      Yes, MN is very difficult to register anything that had a title or a original registration card. I've ran into the same issue with old snowmobiles, and motorcycles it suks. Hope he can get it done over in Wisconsin for you. Good Luck.

      Thanks.  Very similar to my tactics.  I usually haven't started using lead core until August and then we are fishing in 30 FOW.  I will give it a try in 20-25'.

      It's amazing how much the water level is dropping. It looks like we've been getting enough rain to keep the forest hydrated but not enough to fill the lake.

      Finally made it up to Vermilion this summer.  Between opening our place in Soudan and entertaining the wife and dog I only made it out on the lake 1½ hours Wednesday evening and 3½ hours Thursday morning.  In those 5 hours all I caught was a 10" perch.  I had 3 other light bites and that was it.  The wife caught two 8" eyes Wednesday and didn't get out Thursday morning with me.  Vermilion Fuel and Food didn't have rainbows, and their chubs were very small and pike suckers were too big (they did have a river-mix that looked good that I should have tried).  I did see a few mayflies on the surface so I will blame all of those factors on my lack of success, although my lack of fishing skills factored in also.  Many others fishing around us and I only saw one other fish being landed so maybe I wasn't the only one struggling to catch fish.   Water temp was 65°F in Stuntz Bay and the water level is running 13" lower than last year at this time as shown below.  Good luck fishing and enjoy the lake.  It was beautiful out there.
