Minnesota 5, 6, and 7 Pounders

Recommended Posts

My wife just gave birth to our third child (a baby boy) and i have taken the week off. While the little nugget has slept, it has given me time to put together another video. I have been blessed to have a family cabin in Minnesota my whole life. Every year, i have made it a priority to fish there at least one week in the spring with the rest of my brosephs. We usually are able to make it out a week or two in the summer. Last year, i was able to make a fall trip for a week and plan on doing so regularly for the next few years. So, when we are there, we waste no time and get fishing. This is a video of some of the 5, 6, and 7 pounders we catch out there. With all of my footage, i have no idea how many videos i could make, but it is fun to put these things together. My wife thinks it's silly, but she supports me and that is all that matters! I would say these are big fish for Minnesota and small elsewhere. I have yet to get out fishing this year. Currently live in Wisconsin and it was in the 30s again today...this is ridiculous). Thanks for watchin,

You know, i occasionally catch some good ones on other lures, but i just can't stop fishing the jig...I would probably be a terrible tournament fisherman since i would be too stubborn to fish other baits or go for 2 to 3 pounders.

It is an incredible fishery. Lower pressure and much easier to catch a limit than areas with less public lakes. Still have to work for the 5 pounders, but not really for the 4s. More importantly, we have spent enough time fishing the area to weed out less optimal waters and fish lakes that produce with a little patience. With so many adjacent lakes, the good ones can remain incognito at times.

I'm the same with the jig and probably fish it at times when I should be fishing a different lure.  However, I'm not catching near the number of tanks you and your friends are in the video.  :)

I hear you Shimmy ~ Just pulling your chain a little. 

Can't tell you the number of trips over the past several years where despite having 10 rods & 629 other baits, I fished Old Stone head ALL DAY !
