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

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
