Anyone want some big chubs?

Recommended Posts

My dad's been trapping some big chubs (8-10", mostly rainbows but some creek chubs) up in the Grand Rapids area, and all he does is throw 'em back since he just fishes for walleyes. I figured some of you guys might want some. No charge if you just wanna come pick 'em up. I don't go up too often, about every 3 weeks, but I'd be more than happy to bring 4-5 dozen back with me.

Oh, heck yeah. If you are bringing some back, I would be very happy to have them. I live in Crystal, so pickup would be a breeze.

JimBuck, I'm not sure where he's from, I'm pretty sure it's the Burnsville area. His dad is a pastor, if that helps.

I'll be north of Nashwauk about 15 miles. Hopefully I'll see ya then. Also, do you want any grass shiners? We get quite a few of them and some of 'em are really good sized. I'd say about 6" long but they're alot fatter than emeralds or goldens, and they stay alive in a bucket much better

You know where Bray Lake is? 6 miles east of hwy 65, on the north side of hwy 56. We live on the north side of the lake. Where you going?

Looks like I'm gonna have my work cut out for me this week! BTW, do you guys prefer rainbows or creek chubs? I mostly get rainbows, they probably make up about 90% of my hauls

Do you want bigger chubs, normal ones?

I love radisson, there's actually alot of nice smallies in there. Don't be afraid to head over to napolean and owen, too. Great crappie/bass/pike lakes. Owen's actually one of my favorites for bass, both numbers and size. Bring plenty of Senkos and Flukes in any color as long as it's watermelon or white w/ silver flecks

I do enjoy the occassional Surley Bender or CynicAle. Well, maybe more than occassional.... smile

I'll tell ya what, just keep me in mind if you ever feel like hitting the lake and you have an empty seat in your boat, and we'll call it even.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
