Is the sauger run usually in the middle of October? I only hit it once and it was amazing in Drayton.

Same for us, we unhook fish in the net, then release, have caught enough over the years to be pretty accurate on the weights, occasionally weigh a big one, the fish on these days ran from maybe 8# to numerous#20 to#26 with one #28, pictures do look the same I get it. It is the trip I look forward to every year. Had my first taste of cats at the Drayton Dam and got hooked. Bigger average at Lockport, minus the sometimes "stink" at Drayton from the sugar plant, that can be bad, has that changed?


I'm hoping to fill the freezer on the sauger run. When does that usually happen?

It's the god damn turkeys. I can't believe the way their range has expanded. They LOVE to eat grouse eggs.


Those worthless things are everywhere now. It can't be helping. I have run into them in very deep forest miles from fields. They taste terrible so nobody shoots them.

I only seen 2 in a good amount of miles too near Moose Lake. I was surprised. But it was very poor conditions with wind and rain. I hope it gets better.

I think most of the guys from down south clean theirs. Seriously, I seen the release last year and it was very successful. Like 99%.

I suppose only a few gill nets in your favorite lake is no big deal either.......

Last time I did it the resort used a bobcat to help me. If you have a railroad jack it is just a matter of blocking it up high enough.

Going to steel is definitely the way to go. The last time I had to do my skids it was a 4-1 cost difference, so I had to do wood then. I wish steel would have been lower like it has been recently. If you have the resources I would definitely go steel, then your good for life. But with not being pulled very far on rush wood might last 15-20 years.

You might be able to get a guy off the site or a Mille Lacs guy. You could call the resorts on Mille Lacs. They have the experts.

Don't EVER use pine skids. They last only a few years. Get white oak. They are available in Isle,Mn at the lumberyard. It is a tough job but is just more of a pain, not too complicated. Get it up and use a sawzall to cut the bolts off. Then just put the new oak ones on. They are very heavy. Holes must be pre-drilled with a small bit and then use a spade bit.
