Pout are great if prepared right, and the fight on the biguns is fun as well. I recomend LOW.

Lakers are a closely guarded secret wink Havving never successfully iced one, I will deffer to others here. There is some good information to be had if you look around for it.

Tuli'es, a few of the bigger lakes around have em. Millacs used to be the go to, but I would head for BSL. Just dont tell the locals you are not from around there. They can get a little restless/protective about thier lake. sick

eel pout- lake of the woods or leech lake at night, like Jiggin said. Anything you've got that is fishy, some smelt, shiners, sucker heads, whatever. Setlines or'll see some action.

tullies- try some deeper lakes where they exist. Ten Mile, Mille Lacs, Leech, Lake of the Woods. A flashing dropper rig works well.

lake trout- check out the trout species forum. There is a list of lake trout lakes and plenty of people that can help you.

You could probably try to find an extreme northern minnesota lake that has all three. The three species you mentioned are a fish community that inhabits some deepwater canadian shield lakes. Could make for a quite a trip!

    • This might be one of the reasons. 
    • Are the majority of United States citizens too dumb to vote?  A great mantle of responsibility has been placed upon us.  Are we capable?    I shudder every time I contemplate this.     
    • Ended up with one bird on public ground western meeker County Friday afternoon. Saturday the pooch put up 6 birds for us in the morning in swift co with hardly a breeze and all I could do was tickle 1 bird, not very proud of that.  This morning the wind was howling which made the birds jumpy but managed a couple.  We pounded a lot of gravel and didn't see much at all, but then again lots of corn still in.
    • I had military mickeys for years... and years but about 2 years ago I bought Baffin's. AWESOME boots. Sooooooo comfy, warm and decently light. I own Muck's and they are great for more "active" fishing as my feet get cold in them if I just sit one the ice all day. That said, you CAN walk all day in mucks. The comment about Baffin's being large and unable to get pants over...very true! But a great boot none the less.
    • maybe Eve got it!?!?
    • No......but "brexit" was polling within the 4 percent margin of error before the vote . Cant imagine any one of those 272 in the 8 percent  and above range flipping.  Suppose anything is possible, couldn't ever imagine Trump being considered a serious candidate either. 
    • These the same reputable folks that said Brexit was going to lose by a significant margin?
    • So, you are voting Trump?  Or are you going for Gary Johnson?
    • According to the most reputable poll trackers, with a couple weeks to go looks like Hilldawg already has 272 solid votes....... with Trump only at 127. The swing states currently within a 4 ish percent margin of error are Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and Texas. Weird saying Texas and Georgia are swing states and got believe will go to Trump. For fun am also going to give him Arizona, Iowa, and Ohio.......leaving him 216......and 322 for our next first lady.
