Lake George used to have tons, but I haven't fished it in a long time.

I used to live on 9th Ave S right across from Lake George. I would run and walk around it a decent amount. I don't know if I have ever seen anyone fish it though. Its tiny, but I bet if it had any species it would be bullhead! I don't know much about fishing in that area except I used to see people below the dam there catch fish. Mostly Smallies I think.

Brownie or JR.

I have plans to go insane with a seine this week for bullheads. It was just some chatter from last week and this weekend, but if a commitment could be made, we could pick up some major amounts of bullheads between a good group working. I also have seine, waders and one other guy who would like to help out in this. Pretty much ready to go. I also know of some spots we could turn some heads and pull out some bullies. Not far at all from the St. Cloud area. Just a drive east.

E-mail is in my sig if interested. smile

Got a report this weekend from the local neighbor kids that a lake in area has them going like mad right now. No hook or bait needed. They would just drop in a cane pole with line and a hunk of rag tied to the end of the line. Feel the nibble, lift and sling the bullhead over their shoulders on to land. A kid on a bike with a tackle box and fishing pole (cane also) is the best source of info for the local bait and rough fish bite wink

You gave it the college try.

We had a road trip and I kept saying, "I bet there's bullheads in there." My wife was not amused. wink

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
