Saturday afternoon, Friends,Big spinners, and Trout

Postby spindoctor » Tue May 05, 2009 6:30 pm


There are few things as much fun as getting together with an old buddy for an afternoon of fishing. Getting a chance to make a new friend and introduce him into the sport of using large Super Bow spinners to catch trout, can make the outing just a little more special, than top that off with a section of stream filled with ravenous Browns and you have a recipe for unforgettable fun!

I met up with a long time buddy of mine, Glen and his friend Dave, and acting on a tip we received from Curt’s Sport Shop located in Preston Minnesota, we set out to fish a nearby stretch of the Root River.
I didn’t pay much attention to the statistics, just having too much fun, but as I remember, the water was clear, cool, and the trout were biting. Image Image Image
Everyone caught fish

There were small trout, medium size trout,
And Big Trout!
We lost track of time, as well as the number of trout caught, daylight slipped away, and the three of us ventured along a darkened path back to our vehicles, a handshake, and home.

Great Spring weather has sprung in Southeast Minnesota, and the trout bite is on! My Super Bow spinners in colors of silver or gold/silver seem to be working best, but regardless of the technique, there are trout for all. The promise of wet weather is an indication that things should just get better. Get out and Fish!
Until next time; “Keep it low slow and with the flow, and don’t go without your Bow!”
