I wish I could help you out but I haven't been out for a week now. Too many projects to get crossed off my list right now.

Good Luck tonight!

The river is dynamite, as usual. You can catch hundreds of 12'' smallies, dozens of 16'', and the occasional piggie. I've been doing best for the big ones at sundown, but the middle of the day is awesome as well. Topwaters, plastics, cranks, tubes, mister twisters, etc etc etc. They're all working now.

Concerning lakes, I have only been out to Beaver and Sagatan (on SJU campus). The largies are going pretty good, too, but my lack of deep-water skills means that I do much better at dusk than in the afternoon.

Hope that helps. Just get on the old tennis shoes, bring a pocket full of plastics, and walk around the river. You can't miss 'em!

I second that!!! The river is phenomenal right now. We have been using Night crawlers and launching it out there and you pretty much come up with something everytime!!! We even caught 4 or 5 walleyes on crawlers too. Really a lot of fun right now!!! Good luck.....

Studer,

You still fishing below 10th Street? I remember you talking about the tube fishing a while ago...

been having luck on the river as well, above sartell dam. LOTS of smallies in the 12-18 range, some walleyes that would be good eaters if they weren't out of the river, some skinny northerns and even some catfish.

      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.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
