Big brown

Recommended Posts

Today while fishing for pike on my local lake my friend drops down a gold jig and a waxie under an icebuster bobber. Were talking to each other when for no reason nothing on the vex he gets this hit and this "thing" starts taking his drag on his panfish rod that only had 4 lb test on it. The fight lasted for a good 5min when the trout swan under the hole and took off again. After another 5 min the trout tired out and we got the big baby on the ice. The slobbo measured 25 inches and was full of eggs. I am not much of a trout expert just wondering what this baby might haved weighed.

Cool that you let it go. Do they spawn in lakes? I've only caught rainbows before in the mine pit lakes near crosby. Just curious about the spawn deal.

I really dont know about the spawing situations in the lakes this is something to ask Renneberg about. For this lake it used to be an old sand pit it reaches depths about 75ft but the majority of the lake is less than 20ft.

Yes and no. Brown and rainbow trout cann't spawn in lakes. They require moving water to flow over their eggs. Brook Trout on the other hand can spawn in lake but they require springs. They lay their eggs on top of the spring and the water coming up out of the spring turns the eggs keeping them well oxygenated.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
