Blackdog eh? I might go down there in the morning. I got the day off and I can't take a day off without fishing at least a couple hours, now can I? I won't be bothering to fish flatheads though, unless they care to take a bite out of my cut sucker. Roughfish and channels are on the plate...not literally.

I should be down on Pool 2 this weekend (most likely from shore) and one trip for channels on the Miss. North. I got down wind of a very good bite report from a local river rat that got out last Friday up here. No sumo's, but a steady bite, with a couple in the teens (low end 10-11). Just got to get my self out on the river and to the spot, before the water drops any more. Ball of crawler, with some live minnow action mixed in is what I heard was the hot ticket.

To anyone else, good luck this weekend!

Where did ya go Dave??

MN River....

It was slow as expected....but I THOUGHT we'd put one or two in the boat.....not so! Had 2 runs between 4 people, and swung and missed! I did get a nice fat Carp in a wad of crawlers (I resorted to Channel bait for a while) Its a bit cold yet, and the worst thing is all the debris (leaves) that you deal with....we fished some good spots, Im suprised they didnt produce.. frown

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
