What kind of applications do you plan for the rod and reel.

Well the reel is 7.1:1 so I'm sure I'll use it for some spinnerbait tossin and some buzzbaits and save on the arm fatigue. I think I'll be able to deep water jig as well with it. To be honest I wanted something nice to learn with because up to this point I used nearly all spinning tackle. Deitz, what would be the best applications do ya think? How many days left of school for ya? We are done on the 3rd with kids and the 4th is a workshop day.

Fev- we had a 1/2 day today.. I had one of my field days this morning... was a nice morning.. Our last day is the 4th.. staff dev on the 5th.

As for a 6'6" MH rod and a reel that is 7-1.. there are a lot of options. I would shy away from spinnerbaits.. No need to burn a spinnerbait that fast, more often than not I am trying to slow myself down.. It would work for buzzbaits.. Deep water jigs like you mentioned would be pretty good... But would work for texas rigs and light carolina rigs quite well..

Again, enjoy the new toy!

I hit the Detroit lakes area this past weekend. Love the new set up by the way. Didn't have any luck on Pearl or Pelican but I did get into some fantastic numbers on Munson. I hit all lakes with an access on the south end due to high winds. Biggest fish was around 17 inches But I lost track of exactly how many I caught... Probably around 40ish from sat morning to sunday afternoon. Yep still doing that thursday thang!

Well, we always keep it at a maximum of 15 boats but usually we top out at 10 - 12. That seems to be a decent number for most area smaller lakes and launching and loading the boats doesnt take near as long. We will most likely be fishing in the rain tonight. Last week we fished Waverly. There was 11 boats and 21 anglers. One walleye was weighed in... it was a 14.5 incher. Two pike were caught as well... thats it. I am glad we can start targeting Largies now. I seriously hate fishing for three hours for Walleyes and coming up completely empty.

Our last student day here at Norwood Young America is the 3rd and that'll be a half day. The 4th is a workshop day for us and that afternoon a bunch of us are heading up to Mille Lacs for our yearly teachers getaway trip. i'll target smallies in the a.m. and Walleyes later in the afternoon and into evening. Should be a blast! Can't wait.

B-n-S,

Nope, I live in Lester Prairie but I work in Norwood Young America. I Teach High school Biology, Human Anatomy and I am the Head Softball coach.

We had our league last night on Granite (North East of Cokato). 12 boats showed up. Weather was bad with the wind and the rain but there were some decent fish caught. 1st place -three bass and ten pounds even, 2nd place 3 bass and 8.8 pounds, 3rd place - 3 basss and 8 lbs even, 4th place (me) with 2 fish and 6.5 lbs. My brother and I caught about 60ish bass in the 2.5 hours of the league. Bass need to be 12 inches or bigger to weigh. I bet I caught 15 bass that measured a hair less than 12 inches. It got called early due to lightning. I'm going out again tonight. I think the bigger fish have moved shallow and are in post spawn patterns. All shallow fish seemed small, aggressive, and were most likely males. The two bigger ones we caught were on the brake line and were just a skoash deeper.

there is monster bass in that lake. If you get on the fish, and find them, you are going to light up the boats you are fishing against.

    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
