    That's a hawg bbfenatic! Gald to see people are not only finding fishable ice, but catching fish!
  2. MN A-Rig tips

    I would imagine you rig 4 up as dummy baits (no hooks) and make the one bait with a hook stand out from the rest in some way. Making it a different color or size sounds about right.
  3. When is your favorite time to fish?

    Spring for anything in season, especially Bass and Pike.
  4. Bumped. Is the power plant open again for anglers?
  5. Wbl Smallies

    Funny you had success - I too caught a smallie today. 4 feet of water on a bluegill-patterned chatterbait. Fought quite well.
  6. Opening Day Weather

    I'm thinking a small jerkbait or a wacky rigged senko for Demontreville or White Bear. Might throw a lipless crank if they seem aggressive.
  7. How often do you change fishing line?

    I change mono when it gets coiled up, about twice a year. Fluoro when it gets nicked, rough, or coiled, about once a year. Braid is my favorite of the three - I can stretch some line out for two years. Usually only replace it when I run low on it.
  8. Opener lure line-up

    Dogfish, eh? I've never caught one of those. What lake is you cabin on?

    fivebelow, I believe so. I have done so twice and never had an issue.
  10. Getting riled up for the spring sucker run

    That's what I like to see. Fat, tasty suckers ready to be ground into fish balls. Nice haul!
  11. Spinnerbait Brands

    I swear, I just can't catch a bass on a spinnerbait. I've caught dozens of Pike on them, but only one bass.

    I ended up going. Caught 10 brown trout on a black rooster tail in the smallest size with silver blade. Used the McDonalds access. For my first time at that river, I did fairly well. Hope to go back this weekend.

    Can you tell us how you did when you get back? I may go there tomorrow if it's not too shabby.

    Can Minnesotans buy WI fishing licenses yet? Last time I tried they were implementing a new license system, preventing anyone from getting one. Good report. Hopefully the fish are still biting this weekend.

    I imagine that they let launches use livebait to keep business going. Which is incredibly dumb. They're trading their future on the lake for a few months of business now. If they used common sense, they'd switch over to lure fishing and teach their clients how to fish artificial baits. TurnUp TheFishing, I agree. I went out on a Twin Pines launch last summer, and was appalled. They kept every bass they could (except the ones I caught - I threw them back before they noticed I had a fish). They had at least 20 fish between 10 people fishing. I will admit that they were good tasting fish. But that intensity of harvest - at least 5 fish a day, every day for three months - is unsustainable. It boggles my mind.
