Pitt Grade, Lake of the woods county

4 posts in this topic

i'm new to trout fishing. this is my first season and i've been out about a half dozen times.

I tried fishing Pitt Grade this past weekend and wasn't able to get any. i wasn't even able to make more than a ten foot cast with a mepps. there is some pretty thick cover overhead. there were some areas i found just as i was leaving that had almost no overhead cover, but i wasn't sure if they were there. i fished a small section of tomato creek also, but i didn't have waders or even rubber boots, so i gave up after getting wet.

my question is what do you do in such heavy overhead cover? get better at casting? haha. or do you switch live bait and a bobber? is that possible in a stream?

oh and also if anybody knows how much pressure these two streams got when they were stocked that would be something i'd like to know too. it doesn't seem like they would get heavy pressure, but who would turn down their limit of trout?

Try using lighter line and a heavier lure for casting, like a little cleo spoon or something like that.

I use 4 lb test and 1/4 spoons with 7.5 medium light action rod with a large spinning reel and I toss out 30+ yards. I love that set up and has proven to be very effective.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
