Does any one have any tips or advice on how to fish foster for trout. If you dont want your info to be showed on FM, shoot me a email at trevorslifka@yahoo.com.

P.S.- Has any one gotten any splake out there, I guess the dnr stocked it with splake.

Yeah I got one for you fishinbros...

Don't go out there when the local community college has their canoeing class. :-(

Went out there last Sat morning and was greeted by a dozen canoes out just paddling around the entire area. Most of them kept their distance from the few of us that were shore fishin, except for one that ran over my slip bobber.

Hung out for an hour with out so much as a nibble and called it quits for the day. Too much disturbance from the canoe-ers probably caused the trout to seek refuge.

There are some nice ones out there though. I picked up a couple of 10in rainbows when I took my son out fishing the weekend prior. He was pullin in little sunnies (3-5 inches) just a few feet of shore. And I've seen some nice ones swim by hole when I went out there ice fishing last winter. Just keep your line as small as possible and play the waiting game for them to come cruisin by to see your offering. And when you see a dozen or so canoes out there, head back to your car and find another fishing hole. ha ha ha

Speaking of canoes...when I used to fish it a few years ago, I actually used a canoe and it was very productive. I had the best luck in the evenings casting small rapalas and spinners. I would paddle to the end of the lake where the wind was coming from and set up a drift across the middle of the lake. I would then cast in all directions from the canoe as I drifted the length of the lake. This was a productive tactic and I usually caught several trout and some big ones too. It was also nice because I didn't have to worry about interfering with any of the bank anglers out there. Hope you have access to a canoe and this post helps.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
