That's an awesome fish for the early barbless season, or any season for that matter. I hope to tie into something big for opener on Saturday.

Clancy's article was interesting in the Thursday PB. He said that he was using husky jerk for trout in non-designated trout streams, and I was wondering how you would convince the game warden that you weren't fishing for bass, sauger, or other game fish???

I'd think they'd know there were trout in there and would understand that he was after some of the big'uns.

I thought the article was a good one, and it highlights some of the resource that many might not have known was out there...whether most people will like that or not is up in the air. wink.gif

it is funny that all of you have brought up some interesting things

Yes one of my fishing and hunting buddies is mike so that makes us mike and ike

Secondly that fish was caught in SE mn and it was on a non designated trout stream. I had a xrap tied on when we were actually checked by the warden. He knew what we were up to. Although we never discussed species he knew were weren't after suckers. Lastly my biggest trout have come out of non designated trout streams and a friend of mine is a pro at going for the big ones. he has caught 1 dozen fish over 5 pounds in his career all from se mn. His favorite lure is a number 9 yes 9 Floating jointed rapala. WOW iknow. So get out there and get away from the crowds. i have many stories of guys catching big fish but they were off the beaten path and they were not afraid to walk Miles to get to these spots. good luck on Saturday to all. Don't forget to bring you tape measures and your cameras so that you can let the big one go and just get a replica mount made. ike

HEY! I was once told by a wise man...

"The easiest way to catch a trout over 20" is not to measure it."

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
    • delcecchi
      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
