Nice to hear...

We hit the riv this a.m. but in search of smallies once again, didn't get out till 6:00 and fished until 10:00. I suppose we caught and realeased about 25 or so, a few nice ones over 15". Sure was a nice morning, and can't wait to go out after the eye's next time! Buddy even got an 18" largemouth, crazy.

Was out w/tunrevir Sat. a.m. 6-11. Caught some smallies, couple of nice crappies, fun with a big pike. My first time out w/tune and first time in Franconia area. Beautiful weather scenery and weather. Randy, thanks again for the trip, had a lot of fun. Anyone get's a chance to fish w/tunrevir, do so. He know's his stuff and he's good company in the boat. take cars and good fishing.

What a difference between yesterday and today, today I took two guys out and we could only manage to catch 1 (one) legal walleye, seemed the shorties had the run of the place, its amazing how many are just shy of 15" ( 14 1/2 - 14 3/4) but its nice to know by fall they will be legal fish. We found a school today that everyone was just under except for one 15 1/2. After all said today the river may not of gave up any sizable fish today but it was alot of fun. There's always next weekend!

I like to use the Bluffs. I you buy a Washington county park pass (I think it was $25 last year) it's good for a year and you can use it other places. Plus fishing is decent out of the bluffs.

After you left, we worked your area for another 30 minutes. No keepers except for a couple sheepies. Thanks for the hooks!! We did manage 2 in the 17-18" range earlier on the other side and had several shorties over there, too.

Speaking of a new day, my brother and I headed to Pool 4 where we had a guide trip last Sunday. We only managed 1 keeeper and several cigars. The conditions, water temp, air temp, skies, were identical to last Sunday, so it was very disappointing. I officially don't get P4 anymore confused.gif , and vowed to not go back until the fall. I will work on the croix the rest of the summer because it's way closer to home. wink.gif

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
