Rain or shine 18 & 19

9 posts in this topic

Looks like were going to get some interesting weather this weekend but that's what rain gear is for. I plan on hitting the river the usual time rain or shine, at least it won't be hot out! Any body else going out in this weekend? Looks as of now I'll be flying solo in the morning! smile.gif

I'm taking a couple of people out of the Bluffs tonight. Will be interested to see how we do. You have any pointers for evening fishing down there. Don't know if I'll be out there on Sunday morning or not.

Walli1,

I wish I was available to beg you for a spot in your boat. I have read your posts with envy, and would like to learn more about the river. I do well out of my boat, but I can always learn grin.gif

I will be out Sunday evening after we get back from the weekend. If you ever see a red and white 17' Starcraft with a 90 merc on back say hi.

Thanks for the reply and pointers Walli. We made it out, but didn't do very well. Was still great being down on the river though.

The sun rise this morning was unreal it made the whole river glow, wow! Fishing this morning was alright had to really work for what I got, fished 9 different places and graphed two others, ended the morning with 4 decent eyes all coming on crawlers in 20 to 35 fow and one heck of a strange way to get a carp. I was lindying along when all of a sudden I felt a weird tug I pulled back and fish on then up came my line and wrapped around that was lead core with a fish on the end I pulled up the line thinking pig walleye but no such luck, here someone snagged a carp and the line must of broke, the carp was around 6 pounds and the shad rap I recovered hooked on the side of the fish was perch pattern. I wonder who lost it and the story that was told about losing a big fish, did the story say it was a carp! wink.gif

Can't believe I let the weather man talk me into not fishing on Sat morning. I bet it was alright out on the Croix for a good while. I sure hope the smart people got the enjoyment out of a good trip. What did you guys catch? Hopefully I missed out on a great bite.

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
