Sartell 7/21

Recommended Posts

Rivernut

Fished the upper 'sippi for year's. Fished Sartell for the first time today. Launched at the county park launch, more than deep enough for my 16 ft. Caught several smallies, a bunch of snakes, and a walleye. Various baits from jig and crawler, spinnerbait, tybes, and topwater. To the 3 punks in the yellow and white ski boat who thought it would be funny to run full throttle to within 10 feet of us while fishing 10 ft from shore and laugh their ---- 's off, I have your reg. # off of your boat. Hope it's not your parent's. Anyway, aside from that it was a fun trip. I must add that I know they won't see this, because no FMer would pull a stunt like that. Thank's for letting me vent. Mike

Reminds me of the old days when I would fish for eyes and be anchored on a corner north of the paper mile a couple miles. Usually a boat or 2 would go between me and the shore 40 yards away and 150 yards on the other side. I'd just shake my head if they waved. Nice fish MSRD! I saw a picture some other place on the net wink.gif.

The part that urked me the most, they made a 90 degree turn, just to buzz my gal and I. Anyway, I like that area. I'm thinking it is probably a good late fall spot. I"ll be back. I did see a post a way's back, and it said that there was a launch on the east side of the river about a mile north of the paper mill. Any idea if it is there, and how to get there? Anyway, take care and thanks for any help. Mike.

Yes there is a nice boat access there. Just turn north at the 4 way stop on the east side of the river in Sartell. You take a left after going a couple miles (don't know the name of the road) and cross the RR tracks. It's then another half mile on your left.

The sartell part of the river is very good for fishing, but on the weekends when it's warm and sunny there is a lot of boat traffic. Instead I like to fish the river on a weekday, the river is much more enjoyable with less boats.

Weekend fishing out there can be really frustrating. If you know your way around north of the county park traffic is less and fishing is just as good. Just boater beware there are some shallow rock bars and this year the water is way down so there might be some new ones as well.

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
