Ive been kepping track of the water levels here in brainerd and its been up and down the last month or so. Right now its about 2 feet under its highest point which occured this spring. But thats up north here and it is prolly totally different down there.

I was out between the 169 bridge and Anoka-Ramsey this morning. I'm no expert on the river, so as far as comparing water levels to what they were last week or last month, I have no idea, but I would definitely call the current right now pretty moderate. Easily manageable, you shouldn't have a problem at all. Good luck!

What kind of boat ya runnin' lotsofish, I've been in and out a couple times each day and wonder what FM'ers are out there.

The level at my house is down from last week, don't really matter below the bridge, they try to hold 830 above sea level at the dam. Up river from the bridge its down a foot from last monday and an inch from yesterday, my neighbor hauled his first lower unit casualty off the creek last week, I've quit doing it cept for fishing boats, I've even hauled the Anoka Sherrif off, it gets old. It was a zoo above the bridge today, and in front of my place for that matter. I wanted to fish my section and gave up there was so much wave action. mad.gif

I have an older 16' aluminum Lund that I repainted dark blue. You can tell it's me because I have a 35 Johnson and a 6 Johnson on the back. I'm not sure when I'll be back, but hopefully I have better luck next time. It was really windy when I was out, I wonder if that had anything to do with it? Maybe I'll have to be adventurous and go above the bridge...I haven't done that yet. If I use the 6 horse (short shaft) I can make it through about 1.2 FOW, but it takes a while to get anywhere. Probably a lot safer though. cool.gif

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
