4th Annual Trout Day

Recommended Posts

This will be the first of many informationals on the 4th Annual Trout Day May 1st, 2004.
To start, it is FREE!!!!! Everyone is welcome.
From youth/children on up. From those who want to learn about trout fishing and the SE MN region to the novice to the "expert".

Brief background:
I created this day to bring outdoor enthusiasts, fisherman of all ages together, learning, sharing and enjoying one of SE MN's
most precious natural resources. Enjoying it in the heart of the Karst region at Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park.

It is not a commercial event. I have fished SE MN well beyond 20 years and wanted to share with others. Call me selfish, but I find it paramount to educate others on the resources. I'd love to take you to my favorite fishing streams and holes, but what would become of such a gesture? I am a trusting individual, but....I think you get the picture.

The more who understand what it's(SE MN Trout Fishing) all about the better chance we all can begin sharing our "honey holes"!

Plus, SE MN has sooooo much to offer in it's pure beauty and excellent fishing. We need to support the DNR in it's fine work, managing many streams creating now the best trout fishing in 30 years!!!!!!

TO dangle a carrot, there will be presentations and activities from Minn Aqua,
the DNR, local "experts" and a real treat this year from a real/true "River Rat".(more on that).

Plus, if you attend, you have a very good chance at winning gear/tackle, certificates, professionally guided fishing trips and resort stays!

DId I say it's Free??????

If you have attended in the past feel free to share your experience and suggestions!


Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Jim once again has worked hard to secure a ton of "door" prizes. Last year my wife won a full day guided trip for two on Cass Lake with Brian Jones. And a couple years back I won a guided trip on the St.Criox with Turk. So it shouldn't take much to guess where my wife and I will be May 1st!!

So tell your friends, bring your kids, and I'll see you there!

Renneberg,

YEs it is coming up fast.
Getting real busy. I have two Television appearances next week. ONe where I will be taking a FOX 47 media person trout fishing for a filmed segment for Trout Day. Hope I can produce!!!LOL

Streams need more water!! I don't mind hitting bigger water, but like the seclusion of smaller!

Fihsing is pretty good if you put the time in!

    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
    • you using millet?  if so get rid of it. sparrows love it
    • All a byproduct of the MDDI. 
    • Seasoned up burgers and smoked cheese for a topping.
    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
