Consistent action in a frigid early outing -- and massive amounts of food -- help the thrills far outweigh the chills.

We used to go to Crow (Kakagi) Lake and fish trout in the spring. Now my friends all have young families and can't get away for those type of trips. I wish there was a website to meet other anglers who need fishing partners.

Lake trout! The one fresh water fish that I really want to catch that I never have. Spent most of my youth in MN and WI, but dad never took me fishing for lake trout. Have a trip to MN in June and another in August planned. Going to make them a priority. Cannot wait! MN has such great fishing. Been out west for a long while now and really miss the high quality fishing in MN. Hope MN residents get how lucky they are with the best fishing in the world.

great story! libsrhypcrts: has all the fishing friends a guy could need. nodon7: they are hard to catch that time of year, bring good electronics and look for them around the thermocline suspended over 60 - 100 fow, rip-jig airplane jigs and one once spoons tipped with frozen shiners
