    I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam. I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week. Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset. I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water. There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water. Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash. In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank. Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig. I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time. Caught 6 in a couple hours. Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye. So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles. And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in. If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles. Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks. I normally use a jig and a tube. And there's no mistaken them when they hit. Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

    Rivers are so under fished in this state. People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

    VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

    Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

    Not some of the giants you guys have been catching, but I took the kids out and we managed quite a few crappies for dinner. The 3 & 4 yr old are old hands at this now and even catch a few of their very own fish with no help from me.

    Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep. One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice. Crappies should be great this winter.

    10/15/17 Hunted a large, shallow lake both days this weekend. Shot a goose, two pintails, a wigeon, and a greenwing teal on Saturday. Noticed some new mallards and canvasbacks showing up during the day. Got out Sunday, and after the rain and fog, the wind stabilized out of the WNW and the sun started peeking out. Decoyed singles to flocks of twenty-five. Harvested mallards, canvasbacks, ringnecks, a wigeon, and a pintail. Steady action all morning. The calendar migrators from the Dakotas are starting to trickle in! Should see a bunch more with the next strong west or northwest wind. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

    We had a few passing shots this Saturday morning but holy cow the lake was busy. We got there an hour and a half before lst and got the last real parking spot. Six boats out ahead of us and two more came after I think. We got our #2 spot. One guy on the point had dozens of divers out on lines but I don't think anything really decoyed in. Not for us at least. Several groups skybusting and shooting the he$$ out of anything within a couple hundred feet above them. We saw a lot of ducks and the one pass by, when we got four shots off, there was silence and my son goes "Geez, I can't believe we didn't hit at least one (of the group of 7)." lol. I am off Wednesday through Friday for MEA. Think we will get out a few of those mornings and skip the zoo on the weekend. Though I tempted to do four mornings in a row. We just have to get up butt early on Saturday. : )

    I apologize for the crappy pic in advance. I was on a solo mission and failed with setting up my tripod in an area with good lighting, but here is a 19 inch bass from this morning on the Mississippi near St. Cloud. I was using sucker minnows below a float for much of the morning. Fish really seem to be schooling up in deeper slower sections of the river. I ended the day getting about 20 smallies with this being the biggest. Most fish seemed to be near deeper water adjacent to fallen timber or rock. The fish I caught were in 5-8 feet of water. The high water limited the spots I was able to hit, but it was a fun day overall. I also managed to pick up a bonus walleye on a crankbait after I ran out of minnows.
