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!

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • 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?
