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.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
