8/30 report

1 post in this topic

It was the perfect storm for a slow night, MN river spitting out chocolate, very little water coming over the Ford Dam (most was dry, just the area to the right of the dam had water coming through) and lots of junk in the water.

That said, there was still some action. We got about a dozen white bass, a surprise crankbait crappie (nice one, 3/4 lb 11"), 6-10 smallies but just one eye. Usually this time of year the river is full of 12-14" eyes, but we didnt get any of those, just one 20" fish. Also one sucker type thing that actually bit, it wasnt snagged. No sheepies-very odd.

There were fish busting the surface everywhere and lots of pods of 2-3" shad on the surface. With no current, feeding fish could use the whole river and werent concentrated. So it makes things more difficult and unpredictable.

Still, great night to be out. Few boats, great weather!
