Big School, glare does not help to show how many fish are in the school.

When you lose your fly and you have worms and an extra pole you catch more, except I didn't have a regular hook, they were really hungry, they still ate the worm that was on the lure.

Just make sure it drops in front of one, and it should take it. That day the only color they would take was pink. I also tryed black and yellow and got nothing.

Those are Golden Redhorse, just a little off in color. Congrats on getting one on the fly!

are you sure it's not just the lighting, I am pretty sure they were silvers. In the sun they didn't look golden at all.

Mudcatboy Knows his stuff!

At first glance I thought Golden. Mud has seen thousands of redhorse and has caught a black redhorse which is pretty impressive in MN. After seeing hundreds you get to know the look even if they are off a little. The coloring has little effectiveness in IDing a fish. The cover they are on and water they are in effects the color. The dorsal fin was a giveaway on your fish concave not convex.

    • That was obviously his Republican side...
    • lambjm - keep at it. If you do, you stand a great chance of fishing for possibly decades to come.    Inspirational to me, and hopefully others, is our 85 year old neighbor in Hovland who finished up logging our land this past spring. He logs in a one man operation every day, except Sundays, and a nice day every now and again to fish with his wife.    He has been logging continually for 66 years.   Like clockwork he gets to the landing everyday by 8:30, takes a 15 min break at 10:30, a half hour lunch break at 12, and a 15 min break at 3 before quitting at 4:30. A few days last winter I was out on the land making firewood and clearing trails, and could barely keep up with his schedule. He plans to keep at it as long as he is able.    My wife and I saw him last winter, as we rounded the corner of our road, standing atop a 10' pile of aspen logs with a cant hook or axe in one hand, waving with the other. He appeared as a man less than half his age in terms of agility and stature.   Genetics are a key, but staying interested and active in an outdoor activity is very important to a long and healthy life.     
    • That is because he was fooled into believing in trickle down economics and the idea that cutting taxes in and of itself would solve the budget problem.   Some are still fooled today.
    • Starve the beast, only the beast got stuff on credit.   Reagan didn't seem to be concerned too much about debt.
    • We already know Uncle Bill's response though:  
    • That is a very nice Pimple spear!   They are hard to find. I bought a couple of them from Jerry Kelm. He said Pimple used spring steel from hay rake tines to make the spear tines.    I have not seen one in person with chromed or nickel finish like that, but there is a picture of one that looks exactly like yours on page 215 of  the book "Ice Fishing Spears" by Marcel Salive. I actually wonder if it is the same spear. I heard Mr. Salive was selling off some spears about 5 years ago.    Are you going to be our tomorrow? If so PM me and I will bring the book out to give you a look. TS and I are going to out in the morning. 
    • Well, you were never very good at comprehension so your reply doesn't come as a surprise. 
    • Neither one is real big on massive debt and free govt. bennies, I'll give you that.   Just thought I would mention Reagan's libertarianism, since D2E brought it up..
    • Well, the Republicans have JV so I believe that is check mate for our side.
