School got done yesterday so what do ya suppose i did today. I went fishin. Dad was gone so it was all from shore. But no worries, they were going nuts. Caught and released 12 smallies all from shore. They were between 12 and 18 except for one 20 inch hog. It was great. Get out there every body. Happy fishing.

The top water bit is really hot right now..... We went out yesterday and they smacked the top water.... We drifted from the camping ground in elk river to the weigh station in Ramsey and caught about 40 on top water.... The biggest was 19 inches but most of them in that 16-17 inch range. We did manage a few on spinners and tubs but the best action was on top water... what a blast. grin.gif

Shack,

Lot's of guys run that stretch with RiverPros. It can get pretty hairy, but it's no big deal if you pay attention and know the river a bit. It's nice to be able to run in 4" of water!!!

I ran it (Monti-Elk River) with a friend last summer who's got a RiverPro and then canoed it the next weekend, and let's say that my canoe took a whole lot more damage than his RiverPro!!!

If I had the funds, there'd be a RiverPro in my garage, and I would take you for a ride to remember!!!

I am sure it would be a ride to remember! I have seen the River Pro in action on video and they were not holding back any. Sure looks like a nice boat. When I do get another boat, River Pro will be my first option.

The thing about the ER section is you get hung up fast, and draging a boat in fast current is a "female dog" smirk.gif

You guys ever try going behind Sunshine Depot. That channel is white nuckle all the way. Sharp rocks and inch or so below water. Good times!

I got hung bad in the Rock Finder one late night a few years ago, called my neighbor across the river, he showed up about 1:30 AM in his boat, (after I got it off the bar,) WITH BEER AND CIGARETTES, WHAT A GUY! grin.gifgrin.gif

We then floated down river, drank the beer, smoked the smoke and hit our places about 3:30 AM! It was a great day on the water, the 4 blade went in that day for repairs. blush.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

I might ad that my buddy is a pretty good pilot on the creek and the water was a lot higher than it is now. That year you could go anywhere. grin.gif

Levels are dropping, above the bridge we lost 4"s overnight and a few rocks that weren't showing yesterday are now peeking through. frown.gif

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
