Technical question

Lately when I highlight a portion of somebody else's post in order to respond to it I end up getting their whole post copied into my response. In other words the "reply with quote" button pastes their entire post instead of just the section I've highlighted. I don't remember that happening before. W...

Re: Cold Front Strategies

I lost three really nice fish but it was cool to at least know my streamer idea wasn't a total flop. I with you on this. Much of the enjoyment in fishing for me if the "figuring it out" part, followed closely by the "I wonder if this would work" part. You need the satisfaction of the take but don't...

Right now I use a spinning setup with 1/16 oz and 1/8 oz rooster tails and spinners.
First thing you need to do is trade those out for Flowstone spinners. ;)

Re: New to fly fishing

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into the guides and consider giving them a call. Due to budget I'll probably give 'er a few more tries before breaking and paying a guide. Next time out I'll point the car towards the SE. It was frustrating with the number of people that were out, so just getti...

Re: Season’s End Report

I did less fishing this year, as well, due to a combination of factors: (1) poopy weather, with little stable weather patterns and lots of wind (northern Minn), (2) rivers being constantly blown out, (3) I'm a granpa now, and (4) I ain't as young as I used to be. Two highlights for me were my younge...

Re: New Missouri Brown Trout State Record - 40 Pounds 6 ounces

Wow! There are many ways for a fish to die in Misouri! "Missouri state-record fish are recognized in two categories: pole-and-line and alternative methods. Alternative methods include: throwlines, trotlines, limb lines, bank lines, jug lines, spearfishing, snagging, snaring, gigging, grabbing, arche...

Re: tiny mayflies

In the photo he sent I'd say they look like about #18. Yesterday I saw a bunch of similar spinners on a Bemidji area lake. They sure look like what trout fishermen would call tricos, but maybe they are one of the many species of mayflies that are around ---- and because they come off in warm water, ...

tiny mayflies

A friend took a photo of some timey black bodied mayflies that look a lot like tricos. If I knew how to post a photo I would (need help with that). Are there tricos that hatch in northern Minn in June??
