I am getting a lot of fish. Unfortunately, I tore my bicep tendon and had surgery. So I mostly watch others catch my fish for me.

I havent had to go downriver of the no wake zone at Watergate and I dont fish at the dam.

I prefer not to narrow it down any further. grin.gif

OH-Pier, actually this happened getting the boat out. Now about all I can do for fun is play cards.....and I am running GOOOOOOD at Canterbury!

Geez Dave, that's not too specific... grin.gif

Many thanks for the info. I may well be out tomorrow morning either on the upper stretch, or around 494. Both areas were very good up through early June, at which point I jumped over for some bass fishing. But these good reports have me thinking it's time to back on Pool 2.

Out yesterday, 20-25 eyes with 1/2 being 11-14". We moved down river (still above Lilydale) and found the 16-22" fish. Throw in a couple nice surprise pike, a 15-20 lb

MAMMOTH drum, the usual smallies and white bass and it was a busy 3-4 hours on the water.

I was out Saturday 6/30 from 4 PM to 6:30 PM and managed ~6 walleyes pulling a blue and silver #5 crank bait. Went from the confluence up to the dam. No real size but one was 18".

Curious - what colors is everyone else using?

Regards,

Chris

It's not hush hush, got into some nice eyes on 7/2 about 8 am at the 18 foot mark of the island and then again upstream just before the current kicks up. But I sure wish the pleasure boaters would give up some room. It really blanks me off when they come screamin by at 40-50 mph and only 20-30 yds from an anchored boat !!!! Is there a law? !!!!

      Thanks for the reply Rick... One more hour to check off something from my only get to do it once bucket list doesn’t sound bad at all. If it were you is that where you would go?
    • leech~~
      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......
    • Rick
      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber

    • IceHawk

    • eyeguy 54

      I made it out this weekend.  Tiny crappies, but one nice size perch.  I used both wax worms and minnows.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.
