Fihing online with the pros, two.

FM Family,
On February 12th, I am teaching 4th grade fishing classes from 8:30 am to 10:00 am for kids in the Washington Elementary School in Owatonna.
I want to show them how to access information on fishing from the internet and visit FishingMinnesota.com. It is my hope to influence these kids as to consider fishing as a hobby, sport, and for a family activity.
The last time I did this there was a huge interest expressed by the principal and staff at the Wilson Elementary School to have me return again with a simular program this year.
The information and photos shared between the Wilson kids and our FM family & pros was impressive and very much fun!
I hope to have that same atmosphere here next Thursday as we do this for the Washington School.
I am asking the host of Owatonna Today, Todd Hale, to film the kids responding to the lesson and interaction. It is my hope to air the footage on an up coming episode of Owatonna Today's Monthly Fishing TV Show (which I co-host). This will allow the kids to see themselves on TV as well as other kids/schools in the Owatonna cable tv area.

Who of you will be able to participate?

If you can, please post a photo of yourself here and consider also a brief "bio" about the kind of fishing you do... so the kids can direct speicific questions to you.
It should be great fun!

Hello,
This is Mrs.DeKam's class from Washington
Elem. Owatonna. ( 4th Grade)

We are wondering:

All depends on the time of year and body of water!

On the Mississippi in SPring I like to use Night crawlers and leeches!!!

Hi Guys, I think the best Walleye bait can change day to day. The most consitant for me thru the year is a jig and minnow.

Dan K. : What do you think about new underwater cameras? Will it change the way we fish?

Marina: What are the best bait colors? ( For any fish)

Claire K.: What's the best lake for all around fishing in Minnesota?

Jesse C. : What is the state record for Northern? Weight and length?

Jordan P. : What is the best bait for Largemouth bass?

underwater cameras will for surely change the way we fish. Just like how depth finders have changed the way we fish.

Now instead of guessing what the fish are doing, or even if there are fish down there, we can see first hand exactly what is down there and how the fish are reacting to the lures.

Many Pro tournament series restrict the use of underwater cameras just for this reason. It takes a lot of the quess work out of the equation.

best color???

I love to use those fire tiger artificial baits.

But color can all depend on the mood of the fish, time of the year, and how clear the water is, and overcast or sunny.

My typical colors are the fire tiger, red,yellow, and blue/silver when it comes to artificial minnows and plastics.

jigs are usujally white, red, pink, or yellow

best lake for all around fishing?

I would have to say any lake smile.gif But for multiple species, I would say the lakes around the detroit lakes, brainerd area.

I would say the best colors are the more natural colors- the greens,pumpkins,whites. These are the colors I use most and have the best luck with.

Best largemouth bait? Right now for me it is the Senko- it is an excellent bait for kids to use.

Dan K I'm not a pro but part of fishing is sometimes eating fish, so I guess they sometimes keep fish they don't release.

When I go fishing with a pro I pick a lake that I want to learn about and then find a pro that fishes that lake. He can always teach me new trick.

For Largemouth Bass it really depends on the time of year and structure. I like to use top water baits such as plastic frogs in thick weeds. In deeper water I like to use tubes. A spinnerbait is always a good lure and it allows you to cover a lot of water.

Devin,

NOrthern Pike are very prolific fish!

They can be found in a variety of rivers, lakes and resivoirs. Even some small streams hold NOrtherns.

Trophy Northern Pike waters usually will have deep basins with a large quantity and variety of forage(food)!


One of my favorite Northern baitsa(in winter) is either dead smelt or ciscoes, fished below a "tip-up"!

I think the most common fish caught is small perch. I don't think I ever taken my kids fishing anywhere that they couldn't catch some Perch off the dock.

In the lakes I fish the Northerns really like the weeds. And the most consistant bait for catching them is probably a sucker minnow


Thanks kids this is fun but I have to go back to work. You can ask Questions here anytime and someone usually has an answer. That is one thing that makes FishingMN great!!

Dustin What's the best fishing place you have ever been to?
Lucas What
is the best live bait?
Cassy What's the best place for bullhead fishing?
Tyler What is the best place for Walleye?

Best Bull head fishing is right in the park in Faribault, below the dam!!!

Best walleye lake there are quite a few.

To name a couple worth visiting, Lake Vermilion

Lake of the Woods!

Best fishing place? All depends on what you want to try catching..I guess.

Canada has many miles and acres of un touched fishing or lightly pressured fishing, making for excellent year round fishing.

However, Right in SE MN you can find some of the best Trout fishing in the country!!

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
