Report and question!

Recommended Posts

Opening day in SE MN was reported as good to slow, by trout anglers!

Streams like, the South Branch of the Root River, and the South Branch of Whitewater river, flowed very nicely, with moderate to minimal cloudiness.

Sarge and Myself fished nondesiganted waters. Water that probably pushed the "fishable" envelope, managing only a couple fish. However, we found ourselves on a small feeder that was gin clear, immediately catching!

Water temp was 52 in the first stream and considerably colder(no reading sorry) in the clear feeder.

Thunderstorms predicted for Tuesday. This could have both adverse and positive effects on conditions of the streams and rivers in SE MN, pending on amount of rain received and just exactly where it falls.

I recommend keeping tabs on several different streams and rivers while your out, allowing for a choice if inundation occurs.
Reason being, stream A could get flooded out, but Stream C only 15-20 minutes away, flows like the sky above!!!


ANy of you Duluth area trout fisherman care to trade a day on a stream up yonder for a day down here???? Let me know!!!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Jim W, I've got a proposition for you. I know of a stream you probably havn't fished that is a nondesignated trout stream. It's not in duluth, it's in SE minnesota and recieves very little fishing pressure. There have been reports (from a very reliable source) of some very nice trout coming out of there. I would be willing to do some sort of trade if your interested. If your interested email me.

Jim W., I just thought of another stream you might be interested in. It's Gilbert creek in wabash county. Yes, I know you have probably fished it before, but not the section I'm thinking of it's on some private land and I just happen to know the owners, well sort of, I went to school with their kids and they would probably let me fish it. Anyhow about seven years ago one of their kids cuaght a brown out of there that was about 2lbs. or better. I am willing to bet you that there are more where that one came from. Well it's just a thought. Let me know what you think.

    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.     
    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
