river fishing

8 posts in this topic

so a week or so ago i asked about some good spots for walleyes and i was told that the bridge over the mn river in st. peter can produce. well i went down there today and realized i don't know much about fishing for walleyes on the river so i guess i am just looking for some tips, common techniques, set ups etc. any feedback is much appreciated

Water temps are probably too warm yet, give it a few weeks and try again. grin.gif

When I was young we river fished alot for walleye's. I remember dad catching some real pig's in the fall. He always said the bite is best after a good freeze and the leaves are almost gone from the trees.

Look for the Full Moon of Oct, and Nov. 3 days before-3days after the full moon should put you on some fish.

Yes, right before the ice starts to show up is always a good time for river Walleyes.

Pitching to current seams with hair jigs or plastic is typically "sure-fire". I'm looking forward to some of that in November.

In a lot of cases, there isn't a good way to get to them from the water either. blush.gif

A majority of the RiverPro owners that fish the MN are walleye fisherman first, catfisherman second.

Get a pair of waders, some yellow and orange jigs and some Fat Heads. Head up the Blue Earth or LeSueur river look for pools with moving water up stream. Some pool won't have fish some will. It's what I like to do.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
