Anytime you go out fishing there's a chance of a monster fish.

Get out there and fish!

I hear ya' man. I'm just getting into Catfish myself and have had only one skinny channel to show for it. My optimism is the only thing keeping me out there right now. I just tell myself each time I go out I am only that much closer to a piggy....just gotta put the time in. Good luck, you'll get em'. smile

That's the thinking Jim, its slow right now but should pick up soon. One never knows when the big one will hit the bait. Gotta be out there though.

All my biggest fish have come in August. The one in my avatar is 55 lbs caught on 14 August 2005. Some of the best flathead fishing is yet to come. I think I had like 26 skunks that year - you just have to keep after them. Good Luck.

The fish move a lot or may not bite every nite. Right place right time you may end up with something good. Ask how many hours some of these other guys put in this season three four five nights a week if possible and chances are the people with the largest fish have spent the most time on the water. I've had a pretty good early season myself, nothing huge but a vast improvemt over my last years fish.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
