Labor day weekend!!

9 posts in this topic

I think the limit for walleyes should be 3, my reasoning behind this is that I always seem to get that number, redtails 0 crawlers 3 eyes plus a mixed bag, hard to believe nothing would take a redtail, O well thats fishing, fish came from around bait pods, found the bait and worked the areas around it, lindy riggen as usual cool.gif

Was it busy out there Walli? With the nice weather there had to be a bunch of boats out there.

I was wondering if it was just me,cause I blanked on eyes using redtails last weekend.I wonder if the water is a tad to warm for them to turn on to the redtails yet?Im living on your fishing stories this weekend guys lets hear more smile.gif.Walli1 did you try any trolling today?

The river was busy as ever today specially as the morning went on, I did try bottom bouncing for awhile, pulling gold spinner on one rod and silver blue on the other just a sheep and a rocky, man is there bait fish again this year, I still think last year had to be the most I've seen in years but then again my memory isn't what it once was. Really looking forward to next weekend, boat traffic will be cut in half I bet, next saturday I may go out of my comfort zone and fish above the Kinni, I did say may, will see smile.gif

Took I guy to the river today but sad to say it was not the croix, it was close to the head of the apple river some where around 17 miles from taylors falls, I guess its good for muskies, we caught alot of perch and two snot rockets one of which was pushing 33" cool.gif, fish for a couple of hours and socialized, tomorrow its back to the croix I'll be heading out the door around 3am, picked up some fatties at blue ribbon and a couple more dozen crawlers, can never have enough bait smile.gif I'm going to be jiggen most of the morning, Ok jigging and a dead stick with a crawler on! cool.gif

Gold jig and a fatty worked good before the sun came up, managed to put 4 decent ones in the box before 6am and added one more around 7:30 and that was it, stayed till 11 trying everything possible to put one more in the boat but nothing, all five fish came from the same area in 12 fow, all on fatties cool.gif

I guess I am going to have to wake my kids up earlier. We dealt with the boat traffic and fished the sunsets on Sunday and Monday with only one smallmouth to count for our efforts. I tried south of prescott, but traffice was just too crazy for my first time there so went where I knew the river. First time I didn't pull up at least one walleye or sauger.

Walli, glad to hear you might try north a little in preparation for the beanies tournament. Your posts are always good reading. I've been out mostly between Lakeland and Afton this summer weekdays with mixed results, generally bottom bouncers with spinners. Thanks for the heads up on the jigs, been waiting for that!

Looks like this saturday morning I'll be heading up by the hudson area to do some fishing, I think its around 17 miles from hubs to the 94 bridge, should be a nice boat ride, hopefully I can find some areas holding fish, I only have one gps spot above the kinni and thats around the black bass bar area, I have over 20 gps areas below the kinni but thats my comfort zone but its time to expand my range and find some new areas,should be fun scouting out a new area of river, so if you see a old red lund going all over the place it just me looking for spots that hold fish or could hold fish at different times, actually bottom bouncing is a good way to find fish and locate structure, one eye on the rods and one eye on the graph looking for gems along the way! cool.gif
