Then take them Morel Mushroom hunting. Lilacs are starting to bloom. Looks like 4 days of rain. If they aren't out this weekend, they should be just afterwards. Even my boy who dislikes mushrooms, likes Morels. Kids like missions.

.....and my main boat is still in storage behind two campers..... shocked.gif

I've never really hunted for crawlers before, but would love to try it. I live in sherburne county, where much of the soil is sand. Where would be a good location to look for them? thanks.

Schools, golf courses, parks, hospitals, they all tend to keep there grass kept up and mowed low for easier spotting and grabbing.

I thought I blew posting this when we only got a quarter inch of rain and things were drying out by dark; but we found at least 50 before 10:00 pm. Can run the hose for some extra ones if its dry where you are. Might go out again this weekend when its even wetter.

One of my favorite things to do on a damp night. The memories of my dad and I "hunting" crawlers came flooding back when I read that title.

Bless you guys- the bullheads'll love ya!! My old neighbor when I was a kid used to have an electric prod system he'd stick in the ground, he would go out in the middle of a sunny day and get 'em all day long.

Morels ARE just starting, more rain would have been better. Found only seven today (Sunday). Check out "Hunting" forum for more talk.

When I was a kid we would run the hose in the backyard under a heavy canvas tarp for a while. During the day! We didn't get a lot of of crawlers, but enough to fish for the day. Riding our bikes to the lake... the memories. ooo.gif

What's the going rate for kid's crawlers? My kids will sell some to a guy at my wife's work, he's going to Canada (only artificial bedding allowed).

I gave him $5 for all I could use in one day. I didn't even use a dozen. His smile was pretty big and probably thought I was a real sucker. Of course, I was bragging I was going to catch tons of fish and use all of his nightcrawlers and really rip him off. (He was fishing with us)

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon
