Smallmouth bass usually congregate in deep water in the winter. They can be hard to find but when you do you'll likely find a lot of them as they'll group up pretty tight.

I know in most of the state smallmouth are catch and release in the winter months. You may want to look into the Mille Lacs regs to see if they are catch and release or if you can keep any, I'm not sure what the rules are there. Keep in mind though that if you find them in some deep holes some of the fish may not survive the round trip.

The media keeps trying to make it a controversy but it seems like the coaches and the players (including Teddy) all know who the man should be for the foreseeable future.

You don't take a guy out when he's playing as well as Keenum is now especially in favor of a guy who hasn't played in a year and a half and when he did play he wasn't playing any better than Keenum is. If we had Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers sitting on the bench then yeah you try to get that guy back on the field ASAP but even at his best Teddy hasn't proven to be an upgrade over how Keenum is playing.

Down the road Teddy will get his shot whether it be this year or during training camp next year. Personally I'd rather keep him as the back up this year, hopefully get him into a game late in the season when playoffs spots are secured and then let him come back full speed next season during training camp and let him earn his spot. I know contract situations make that challenging since both Case and Teddy are up for free agency this off season as is Bradford.

Was out all day Sunday and Monday morning. Didn't see a single thing either day.

I spent a few hours on Monday afternoon scouting some new areas and found a couple scraps and numerous rubs along a main trail. Too late for me to get in there with a stand this season as its rather in accessible and will need a new trail cut in order to make it feasible to get stands in/out along with getting a deer out.

Going back in 2 weeks for a 2 days hunt.

I've only been out once this season but had good activity 2 weeks ago when I was out. I am hunting around the Duluth area and saw deer each morning and afternoon I was out. Saw one small buck chasing a doe the first morning but she wanted nothing to do with him.

Had another nicer 8 pointer come through the next morning but he stayed a few yards too far out for my comfort zone.

I'm hunting in a city with an earn a buck requirement and I ended up fulfilling my need to take an antlerless deer that Friday afternoon. So the freezer is no longer empty and I'll be able to spend the rest of the season looking for one of the mature bucks I know are in the area.

I've always wanted to find a way to run some current into the hitch or door handle. Flip a switch before you leave to turn it on and when the thieves come by they can a good jolt out of the door handle or the hitch.

I'm getting a late start to the season. I've been dealing with a back and shoulder injury so I missed a lot of shooting time over the summer. I was out over the weekend getting my ladder stand moved and getting a ground blind placed and brushed in. Also did a little shooting and it looks like my form is coming back and groups are tightening up.

Hope to hit the stand for the first time in early October. Before then I've got too many family obligations and I'd like to give the deer some time to get accustomed to the stand and blind before going back in there.

So far it seems like a little less sign than last year but still looks to be a lot of deer.

Guessing no contest this year and judging by the lack of traffic we'll be lucky if the site makes it through the year.

I've noticed the trend as well.

I know some of the shops I've been to in northern MN trap their own minnows so they will obviously be a lot different than what you can find anywhere in the metro.

I do wonder how bait is sold to shops? Is it graded in any way? Like the shop can buy grade A, B and C fatheads from a distributor with the lower grades decreasing in size and quality? Or are there just different sources for bait shops to buy bait from and the metro shops buy from a lesser quality source?

Its a big smallie for sure but they get bigger. Seen some giants come out of some BWCA lakes.

Generally it seems 20" in the minimum threshold for a smallie to be considered a trophy and then it goes up from there. So by most standards that's a trophy, although that's very subjective and its really up to the angler to determine his/her own trophy.

The last few years I'd say I average about 10 days of fishing during the open water season which includes 5 days at a cabin each year. Had to skip the cabin this year because we moved into a new house this summer so this year I'm lucky if I've been out 5 times.

2 young kids (4 years old, and 1 year old) and both the wife and I work and have busy jobs that don't always get left at the office. Those factors plus all of the normal stuff life throws at you really cuts into my fishing time.

Before kids I was out a lot more.
