  1. Clam grey canvas rod locker was in my covered sled. Somehow fell out or we left it at buckshot entry. I feel like dump about it. We were fishing at the basin. Two of the rods were gifts from my wife, would hate to loose them. I gave my number to Sportsman's Cove in Webster and the bait shop in Grenville. Willing to give a cash reward if found. Thanks guys.
  2. For those guys who fish the lake a lot. I have a question. Do you think it is reasonable to plan on driving on the lake at the end of March? I assumed it would be fine, but I saw a post from a couple of years ago that seemed to imply that wasn't the case. I know there are parts of the lake that are never safe for driving, etc. But generally speaking... Thanks a lot.
  3. Anyone know that water temp in Yellow? Must still be pretty cold...

    Yellow Lake

    Chris - I have been out in the metro the last few weeks. I like Prior around this time. Stick to the lower end of the lake (it is called Upper I think), in some of the bays by the bridges. I slowly troll with small jigs. Mixed bag of crappies, walleyes, bass, etc. I also like Bald Eagle. The point near the north end is good, but get a bit away from it (12 feet or so) either to the north or the south. Bobbers have worked best for me. Also South Center - the bay in front of the launch (I think it is the north end, behind the real deep water). Troll cranks. Any tips for Alice? Chris

    LoonASea - Screw the St. Louis - if I caught that many fish on Yellow Lake I'd be heading right back to the same spot...

    Chris - You get around on the Fishing MN site - huh? Hopefully there is no nutjob from Iowa following us on this one... I can't find your email address. Mine is [email protected] Send me your address and some thoughts, and I'll share my spots. I'm leaving early Friday am. Chris

    Yellow Lake

    I've heard about some nice crappies in Yellow - yet to find them the last two years. I have had some luck with walleyes in May. How did folks do last weekend? If you have a couple of spots - I'll share mine...
  8. Thanks for all the interest. But, it is sold. I let my buddy have it. He was all pumped up about it, and we've been fishing together since we were 12. Plus, he nets all my fish. I had to let him have it.
  9. According to the yearbook, there are 25 guys on the team. I count 23 autographs on the stick. I think I found Gaborick's and Fernandez's for sure.
  10. I won the stick at a raffle, and like I said, I'm not a Wild fan. Now if it was T-wolves autographed, it would be a different story. Like I said, I'm open to a reasonable offer. Email me if you are interested. [email protected]

    tip up line

    I use a heavy braided line. Maybe it is dacron? I would get 30-50 lb test. It tangles less and is easier to manage. I typically use a long florocarbon leader for walleye fishing and quick strike rigs for northerns. Either way, the braided line is far enough away from the fish not to bother them.
  12. Hey fellow FM'ers... I got my hands on a 2005-2006 team autographed MN Wild Hockey Stick and '05/'06 yearbook. I am not a Wild fan and figured maybe there was someone who would want to take this off my hands for a reasonable price. The stick is a Sher-Wood SOP 7000 and has the Wild name and logo on it. It is autographed by the entire team. Any offers? Chris
