As far as I can surmise the executive stay home order in effect until May 4th is a strong recommendation from the Governor's office. They can't keep us from going outside and getting into our boats or hunting in the woods ......not yet anyway. I'm saying follow the laws in place and you should be fine. Now get out there and catch some crappies!


When the stay at home order went into effect Walz specifically called out fishing and outdoor recreation as things you are still allowed and actually recommended. Just don't pack your boat with 10 people all from different households.

Personally I've been out fishing several times since the stay at home order has been in effect. I go by myself and stay away from other people while I'm fishing but I would have done both those things anyways.

The below statement is copied directly from the DNR's website.

Public water accesses. Most state-managed public accesses are open, though the availability of amenities, such as docks, are contingent upon seasonal maintenance.

If you can fish while following social distancing guidelines then you are free to do so. Public boat launches are open but may not have all normal amenities.

Where did you get that info from?

So far only bad news for me. I was flying to France when things blew up and the ban on European flights to the US was put in place. Actually was announced when I was somewhere over the Atlantic.

That ended up costing me several thousand dollars to buy new return flights home for me and the family. Boiled down to bad timing, poorly announced policy, and us taking a bit of a gamble in the first place. Never even made it to France, turned around in Iceland during a layover.

I had been working on a BWCA trip but now thats on hold, maybe it will still happen if things get back to normal but not sure yet. Have some other trips that are in wait and see mode. Hoping for the best.

Even with the lost vacation in France, the extra thousands we lost on return flights, and other trips on hold we still consider ourselves lucky. Both my wife and I still have jobs, we're healthy, and we have the ability to work from home and stay safe with the kids. It might be driving us crazy a little more each day but we still know where some of the lucky ones.

Got up early this morning at hit the creek/river from 6:30-8:30 this morning. Very slow again, not even a bite. The water has come up a lot since Saturday. The bridge at the mouth of the creek is only accessible with a pair of waders. I fished almost entirely back in the creek. With these conditions its usually not a hot bite but can be a good time to get something with some size but can be very hit or miss. Today was a miss. Not often I don't catch anything down there.

I was fishing minnehaha creek and on Saturday afternoon in the pouring rain. Just used jigs and plastics which typically are better for big fish but not at good for numbers. Didn't get a bite but did talk to another guy that claimed to catch 2 nice walleyes and a couple pike.

He also measured water temp in the creek at 44 degrees but i'm sure the main river is a little colder. Once temps get closer to 50 in the main river i've started having more action.

I hope to get out again sometime soon but life is crazy right now with the wife and I trying to manage full time jobs from home along with school for my daughter and keeping the 3 year old from destroying the house in the meantime.

What do you consider an arm and a leg?

There are a few good places but by the pound they usually charge $10/lb minimum. You up for spending $200-300 on jerky?

2nd one is for sure a coyote. The first one could be a wolf and the apparent color would probably cause me to lean that direction but given its partially obscured in the photo I don't think you can say with 100% confidence what it is.

Lets try this again.

Brand doesn't matter as much as long as your drill meets the minimum specs. Here is what krill lists on their site for minimum specs.

Side Stabilizer Arm (for a secure two-handed grip)
1/2 Drill Chuck
18 Volt/4 Amp Lithium Ion Battery (or higher)
Brushless Motor Design
500-750 RPM with a minimum of 725 in/lbs or 820 UWO of torque

Joe's is a good place to keep your eye on. You can score some really good deals there if you can catch it right. I scored my K-drill there 2 years ago for a steal.

I try to get the bulk of my fishing gear from them just because I like supporting them over the large big box stores.


I had never been in there before but man was it refreshing to have a salesperson who actually wanted to help you and actually knew what they were talking about. It's on the opposite side of the cities from my house but i'll go there now over gander/fleet/cabelas anytime.


Luckily I've lived within 10 minutes of Joes for the last 15 years so I'm in there a lot. They do have the best sales staff. I've never encountered one that didn't know their stuff.

The only thing they are a little light on is archery equipment but Bwana is close by so I go to them for all my archery needs.
