We did it!! After many days trying to catch our first brown trout, we finally got one.  I am so excited for my son this will go down as one of the most memorable fishing experiences of our life!  Thank you to everyone on lake-link that offered advice, thanks to my new Russian friends on the wall for giving us tips and netting the fish, thank you to the local bait store for giving us great advice and great spawn, thank you to Eric Haataja for giving me a Raven rod so my son could land this fish!

For salmon eye use a st Croix salmon trout series 8.6 rod with a daiwa reel spooled with 15 lb power pro and depending on water clarity a 12 lb floro leader. Also we catch suckers with just a hook with crawlers and small split shot and leave it on the bottom. They r bottom feeders. Good luck also once u get a big fish in the net don’t pick it up horz pull it hand over hand

I believe it is illegal to catch a fish and leave it just sit on the shore like that, could be wrong. Even if it isnt illegal, it still isnt right. I know they are suckers, but they are still fish. Most of the time, all fish play of role in the eco system they live in.

I basically suck at fishing the wall.  Its been 3 trips and I have lost all fish although my kid did get a couple (see previous post) I got some AWESOME advice from a couple of locals and some really good tips from the local bait shop.  I got the net, got the right spawn and now I feel I need a better rod.  I am using the same rods I use for bass/pike and they are too short and I cant control the fish very well.  Any advice on what Rod to buy?  I would buy used ones if any of you have one available.  If you want to watch a vid of me not catching fish here it is...

The gas station in port by the power plant sells a frabill that extends. That's where I bought mine.
