Hey all,

Time for the roll-call of weekend plans:

I'm looking at a tiger run for a couple hours on Saturday morning before family stuff and somewhere West metro on Sunday. Weather doesn't sound good for Sunday but we'll give it a go. Maybe 'tonka or Indy......any suggestions? Fletcher's to watch football and have a beer based on the weather may be another option! wink

Lets hear the plans, fishing or hunting!

I'll be fishing somewhere this weekend. I haven't been out in 2 weeks, so we'll see how it goes. Chance of snow on Sunday with 30 mph wind? I can't wait.

Giving Mantrap one last go this year Friday and Saturday. Hopefully I'll make it back with a good report.

I ended up pullin one out of there last weekend. Had a couple other close calls. Bulldogs, dcg's, and suckers all moved fish for me and that's about all I tried. People I was talking to at the ramp had good things to say about the last couple weeks. Would be up there again if I weren't working.

Yep. I'm thinking about doing some wind trolling. That kind of wind and the right swimbait or spinnerbait and you've got yourself a lazy afternoon, assuming you've picked a lake oriented correctly. Almost as lazy as the time we trolled along shore and back to the boat launch without touching the steering wheel; if we needed to turn everyone shifted to the same side of the boat.

Hiya -

Saturday I'm going to be running around in the woods fixing deer stands and pulling out the dock at the cabin (no more swimmin' this year - *sniff*). If I get my chores done early enough Saturday I may sneak out for a couple hours Sat evening somewhere, then bright and early Sunday morning I'm headed to beautiful Lake of the Woods for the annual end of October troll-o-rama. 6 days of dawn to dusk. Can't freaking wait...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

I really want to find time on Saturday to do some trolling on a metro lake before this cold front moves in, but the leaves on my lawn and the sprinkler system I haven't blown out yet have a different plan for me this weekend.

If I get lucky I'll see you on Harriet RincRat.

I may get out but even though Jredig gives me [PoorWordUsage] for it once there are ducks to chase my mind totally switches gears. That said i could always soak a sucker between the decoys on Bald Eagle.

Good luck to you all this weekend.

Any word on White Bear or Waconia? I hit Tonka Monday, lake hadn't turned yet, we had a 49" in the first 5 minutes and that was it for 3 hours. Have the chance to go tomorrow and haven't decided on WBL or Tonka yet?

Any comments to sway me??

Hey Hopkins,

Were the buoys still in? I saw another post in the Metro forum saying they were being pulled today in the Spring Lake area.

Thanks!

Results for anyone?

I fished all afternoon on forest, 3 fish sighted, one ate the tail off my mag dawg no hooks, doh! The other two were more incidental sightings, I don't think they followed, just kinda showed up WELL after my lure was out of the water. Pretty gloomy reports from everyone else I talked too and some friends who were out there too.

Some guy got a 48 yesterday though, they are eating!

Fished hard yesterday and all day today with a big goose egg. My worst back to back fishing days of the year. Rained all day yesterday for the most part and today we got the wind. Tomorrow is suppose to be worse, so I'm staying home. Talked to others at the landing and nobody caught anything either, oh well.

Wow, same luck here fished Mantrap hard both days had one low 40 inch fish come off in the rain Friday. We fished real hard today throwing jakes,DCG,spinnerbaits and moved 5 fish but couldn't get any to bite. Talked to one guy that pulled in a 40 during the rain Friday though. Did anyone else have any luck?

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
