What do You use to catch brown trout(in a lake). I am a beginner and would love to catch one. Also, anything else I would need to know to understand them. Thanks in advance!!!

They are similar as far as presentations but IMHO the browns are a bit more aggressive when it comes to cranks and spoons then bows. Trolling spoons, spinners and minnow baits would be the way to go. Browns also seem to hit well into the dark of night, and I haven't found that as much with the rainbows. Scanning the lake with your electronics will give you a general area to start as far as a depth then it is a matter of getting your baits to that level. I like to work smaller raps with either snap weights or leadcore if the lake is big enough. Sometimes the old cralwer sunk under a cork or floated off the bottom will work well. Crocs, cleos and even some of the smaller flutterspoons used for coho all would work for trolling.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
