June 28th report

Found my way to the river again last evening (what a wonderful evening it was!) Tried a reliable walleye spot and righ off the get go landed a nice 15" sauger, thought to myself it's going to be a good night, after that we proceeded to catch no less than 35 smallies from 12" to 19", they were just hammering the bait, thought about moving to find the eyes but we were having so much fun we decided to stay put, I'm sure the walleyes were there, but the smallies were getting to our presentations first. The bite died down about 8:30, then we starting picking up a few walleyes on crawlers and leeches from 14'-24' worked real slow. Boated about 6 or 7 eyes, nothing big but fun. Highlight was a 40" sturgeon my buddy landed on 6 lb test! Fun times and plan on hitting it Sunday bright and early!

Good luck out there Saturday!

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
