So has anyone been out in the last few days? I am just looking for an update. I will be out again soon just wanting to know if things are improving. Since the weather seems to be on this warming trend smile.gif. Hopefully we can get 50's and some rain soon. That would be sweet.

Catch ya later

No rain til after the 1st please. Dont want the Rainy River turning into chocolate milk til then. grin.gif

Fishing is spotty but seems to be getting better. Was out a few days ago and got 2 Coho and 1 nice Looper. Crawler and marshmellow took them all.

Thanks Northlander

For those of us not lucky enough to go to the Rainy I say I want rain now. No boat and a wedding in June have made this fisherman a dry-liner way to long.

Oooooh, Timbow. Congrats on the coming nuptials. Buy a boat quickly after the ceremony.

Once the kids start coming, the two-seater car will go, the extra other stuff will go, but if you've got a boat before the first Jr. comes, you can always lobby your new Secretary of the Interior that you need to retain the boat, even in these trying budget times, to pass on proper values to your next generation.

Begin your lobbying immediately. grin.gif

As a new husband, you may be the Secretary of Defense, Homeland Security, Agriculture (if you like to garden and because you have to mow the lawn), and Transportation, but the Secretary of the Interior is the real ruler. Marriage has little to do with foreign policy. Domestic issues rule there, don't you know. Never met a Secretary of the Interior in that setting who didn't want to be President.

And one former Vice President likened his position to a "pitcher of warm spit." Yikes! blush.gif

Uh, boy, guess I digressed a bit. But then, I've gone through a few Secretaries of the Interior. They hate me now, but what I did I did for the sake of my country! crazy.gif

Take Stfcatfish's advice and do it now. He knows what he is talking about he has had lots of experience in this area. wink.gifgrin.gif

Only thing I will say is be the President!!! tongue.gif

Northlander, it looks like you jumped on the mallow bandwagon as well. It seems over the last couple years the crawler marshmallow combo has produced 90% of my fish from shore. I might be out tommorrow morning early for one last try before the fly rod comes out.

Hey Im no fool! When I see something that looks good and it works Im not to proud to bite on it and put it to use. I used the smaller ones because thats what I had. Color didnt seem to matter.

I have also used the smaller ones and done well, don't think size or color matters all that much. Hey! I just realized i hit 1000 posts! Just 100,000 more to catch northlander. grin.gif

I've always put a marshmallow in my spawn sacs and have always used a worm blower on crawlers to get them to float. A marshmallow with a crawler is a great idea, no wonder why I didn't think of that. smirk.gif It's been a couple years since I've shore fished for loopers so maybe its the norm there, but it's new to me. Any special way you guys rig this or is it just simply thread on marshmallow then crawler?

Just slide tha marshmellow up to the eye of the hook then put the crawler on as usual and put a little air in it. Colors dont seem to matter too much as far as I have found.

Thanks again Quick. Ill also be out at the French early and probably til 1ish.

Thank a ton!

Everybody seems really gung ho over the upcoming event. I can pretend to be the dictator as much as I want, but I know where the decisions are made. As for the boat... We can safely say that it is in the works. I have been told that we need to be stable first(by the future Mrs. Timbow). I know that it is her idea of stable (whatever that means), but thats O.K. because I have PLAN B!! I am 22 and have been packing money away into a small savings account. I been doing this a few years now. A couple of car repairs hit it hard, but all in all I should have a boat in the next year or so. That was my goal when I started school (UMD) as a graduation present to myself. So I got a year left and then its smooth cruisin on the lake. I am going to be out maybe today (friday) but definitely saturday. Look for the guy with the Camo ball cap with a Tomahawk Scout Reservation Stocking Cap over it and come say hi. OH YEAH! I will also be the one with all the fish!!! HAHA

LoonASea,

I was to your left as you look at the lake. I was just bast the tree that jets out from the bank along the ground. I was the only one past that point that landed a fish during the morning. I left the spot around 11:20am or so. I was able to land a Coho around 6:45am. There was one other person between us that landed a Coho that I saw. I don't remember the time.

If you see my truck again I usually try and fish the same area. I wear Black Carharts and have been wearing a Northland tackle ball cap. Stop by and say hi.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.
    • Angelfish
      I wamna go fishing this weekend but was troubled by the ice condtions. Do anyone know how much ice are on the following lakes; Osakis, Grand, Arvilla or possibly even Star???

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
    • Bryan P
      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
