Last week I received consdiderable damage to house and truck due to hail. I called my insurance and they had me a check in 3 days for hail on truck. Still working on House. In Febuary someone ripped off my property out of work vehicle. Insurance came through again. Now last night some (Contact Us Please) collided with my super tough steel bumber and left his windsheild on my hood and bug deflector and for 1/2 way down the city street. Then he or she split. My neighbors said it happend about 4:30 am, they heard it and it woke them up. the figured by the sound of it someone was going to be dead on the street but by the time they got dressed and outside the culprits are gone. Kinda sucks with a $500 deductible on my roof, hail on vehivcle and hit and run that is $1500 worth of fishing gas money. GUess I am going to have to hitchhike to the lake. What next a Typhoon on the Red River. confused.gif

Ya I guess I haven't been spray painted yet. And I guess if my girlfriend left and my dog ran away I would have a number one hit on the country charts.

Sorry, I just have to pipe up when I hear a funny. I've been out with not much success....lots of snot rockets.

I hope Paul is at least catching fish with the luck he's having. I swear sometimes if it wasn't for bad luck a guy wouldn't have any luck at all....hey isn't that a country song??

Speaking of a country song -- you bring the beer and I'll let you in my boat.

What, not a song -- well it sure as heck should be.

Eye -- If you want to tag along some day -- let me know.

Na I haven't even been out to go fishing. I have been working on giant commercial job for work that has tied up the resources called time and energy. I hope to be out this weekend somewere. You'll know it's me when you see the hail dents and smashed bumber. LOL ./ Good news is the insurance co is giving me almost 5 grand for my house damage. Most estimates so far to fix my roof have been about 2 grand.

I hear ya. In my line of work we specialize in hail repair on homes. With the storm that hit the metro last week business has been ridiculous. If you need a hand finding a reputable contractor in your area let me know.

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.
