8/4 report

6 posts in this topic

That rain this morning musta keep alotta fisher people off the river today, cause usually there are a few reports already posted by now. Walli1, are you ok? Usually your the person who gets the ball rolling and starts the thread.I am one of those guilty of wimping out too. I had the boat on the truck and was loading up the g/f when it started drizzling at about 5:15 this morning. She didn't seem to excited about getting wet that early in the am., so we went back to bed. And yes, I am using her as my excuse for not being down there today.

Hopefully I'll be drowneding a crawler early tomorrow morning, I can't live for another week without my dose of river fishing.

Well that was just what I needed! What a great morning to be on the river, It was so quiet out there this morning, I cherish that alone time where its just me and God, should of left the river by 8:45 because thats what time I was out of bait, two 18 count crawlers, knew I should of bought another one! tried to catch eyes on fake bait for over a hour and nothing, caught a mixed bag this morning, along with four eyes the biggest being 17, all eyes were caught in 24-32 fow lindy riggen.

I too enjoyed the extended quiet time on the river on Sun. am. It was atleast 10:45 before the wakes started toss'en me. I still had 0 luck with the 'eyes, but did find 3 decent saugers 14-18" and a bunch of bass, drum, sunnies, and cats. Which where the first cats I caught all year. I also pulled a old Zebco33 and pole up. It put up one heck of a fight, but I managed to land it with 8lb. line. That was the only thing kept. The fish seem to be in very concentrated area, no more than 100yds. or less. Lindys without a spinner and baited w/ a worm seemed to be the preferance. I found fish from 17-30 fow and on various type of bottom.

The fish I found were in the soft basin, nothing there except a mass of bait fish up off the bottom and the eyes were below, classic! I found them in the same areas that produced prior years, This weekend I once again will be taken two green horns out from my church, so if you see me tying lines and baiting hooks and not fishing much you'll know I'm having a tough go at it! The pressure will be on to produce and teach, should be interesting and fun!!

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites citizens to learn about proposed recreation opportunities in Centennial State Forest, a 3,394-acre state forest in Cass County donated to the DNR in 2013.  The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26, in the Walker Community Center Rotary Room, 105 Tower Ave., Walker. Following a presentation at 6 p.m., there will be time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Minnesota state forests are classified into three groupings for off-highway vehicle (OHV) and motor vehicle use: In “managed” forests you may ride on all state forest roads, signed trails and non-designated routes that are not posted closed. In “limited” forests you may ride on all forest roads and trailed signed for specific motor vehicle use. “Closed” forests are open only to highway-licensed vehicles on forest roads. As part of the overall planning process, the DNR is proposing to classify Centennial State Forest as “limited.” The DNR is also proposing to designate approximately 11 miles of forest roads, to allow OHV and motor vehicle use on those roads. Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, July 26. For more information call: Tim Williamson, OHV acquisition and development specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 218-308-2369. Joel Lemberg, Backus Area forest supervisor, Forestry Division, 218-947-3232, ext. 223. For more information, visit the Centennial State Forest webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.  “We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.” This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20. For information on purchasing tickets, visit the DNR-United page. For questions or orders of 10 tickets or more, call 763-476-2237 or email tickets@mnufc.com. The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program. The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass.

      Was out in DL area Saturday....still the same....prespawn staging 8-12 ft but did get some dandies late evening in front of an inlet pretty shallow 4-6ft and they were the most agressive Crappies I've caught this spring.  Mother Nature has dealt us another yo-yo spring up our way and that $uck$

        It's crazy people just have no respect what so ever for the environment or for other anglers.
