I haven't hit it yet this year, hoping to next week - I was somewhere else on opener this year - caught 7 rainbows between 9" & 14".

I did simply terrible on Courthouse all winter. Especially compared to last year. I caught more odd looking sunfish than anything. I also noticed the apparent lack of stocking.

I'm wondering if the DNR is planning on doing a reclamation on this lake and isn't stocking for that reason? The sunny population seems to be increasing. I also know there is a largemouth bass in there.

Or possibly the budget for stocking has been cut?

Really! I've driven by that place a few times, never knew there were trout in there. I don't get out that way often, but now I know I can throw a line in when I do. Thanks!

There's a pond in downtown Chaska? Whereabouts? I drive down Hwy 212 once every other month at least. Probably gonna make the trip 3 times this month. Might as well make a pit stop on the way.

Courthouse lake is right behind the Chaska city hall/courthouse.

Will be driving through Chaska tomorrow. Off of Hwy 212, how do I get to this lake? Turn by turn directions would be great!

Thanks guys!

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
