Well people, we have just over a month until this years Trout Day, held in Beautiful Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park in SE MN.

<April 27th 9:00am to 3ish>

This years event will prove more educational, fun and of course a lot more and better door prizes!(Don't forget it's FREE)

If you are new to this event, check it out on the Tourney Events Forum or SE MN Forum.

It is for fisherman of all ages and level of experience.

Fly fishing seminars, Spin fishing seminars,
DNR Electro-fishing demonstrations, invertabrate samplings, fly tying demos and we even might have some on-going rod building as well!

Beyond the wonderful educational presentations, a highlight is the drawing for some wonderful door prizes!

This year so far we have Guide trips from, Mille Lacs, Lake Vermilion, Cuyuna Mine Pits,
SE MN Streams/Rivers(2) and the ST. Croix River.<other guide trip(s) yet to be named.

The Drake Motel in BlackDuck, Mn is donating a two night stay for two;

Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle has offered to donate some Angel Eyes. ( JUst to let you know, the Angel Eye hasn't really been field tested in streams in Mn, what an opportunity to have gear that no one else has on the stream?? Gear that I am certain will drive those trout nuts!!!!!!

There will be other fishing gear, gift certificates from Gander Mountain, Magnum Sports, The Bait Box and other fine door prizes, waiting to be given away!!!!!

It is a day to get together, enjoying Spring, meeting and creating new friendships, to learn and share fishing information and the all important need to emphasize conservation and maintenance of SE MN's wonderful fisheries!!!!

Door Prize Update:

Mel Dickie has graciously offered to donate a rod again this year for Trout Day. If you ever have a desire for a high quality Custom Made Rod, check Mel out at Wild Goose Sports in Rochester,Mn.

Don't quote me here, but I do believe Frank from Redbarn Rods learned from Mel!

Thanks Mel!! Once again someone will be truly blessed with one of your fine works of art!!!

jimmy,

That applies to the daily or two day pass only. I wish we could get that good of a deal on the season pass, but they would really take a shot in the arm if they did that!

Oh no, no left over prizes for you! smile.gif

The weather should be a non-factor for attendence. Those that have said they would be there all along will be there. But you might not get the picnickers that hadn't heard about it, like last year.

And if the weather is alittle cool, what could be better than meeting some new people, learning some new things, in front of the fireplace at the pavillion, I think the one half of the building is even heated?

So fish early, come and warm up?, then head back out for the afternoon.

See ya there
Greg

I wish I could attend the 2nd Annual Trout Day. I wanted to go last year.....wanted to go this year....alas I can't swing it.

Everyone have a great time and enjoy the weather (I mean it!). My biggest trout have been caught in the middle of spring snow and/or slush storms.

Good luck and have fun!

    • 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.
