Confluence Action?

Recommended Posts

DEADhead

Anybody having any luck fishing the confluence area lately? I'm debating whether to hit pike island, lilydale, harriet island, or SSP over the next couple of days. email me please if you do not want to post. I'll mainly be fly fishing or throwing plastics from shore. Thanks.

I fished this area last Sunday morning, and am sorry to say I didn't have a very good day. Nothing at the confluence and nothing but a small white bass up to the dam. I was trolling a #5 Shad Rap firetiger or perch. Tried casting the rock rip rap at the dam with a jointed Shad Rap perch with no luck. Tried casting a few current breaks with no luck. The current has picked up a little and with the forecast may pick up some more. Hopefully the water temps will start coming down.

Fished by the confluence Saturday night with decent. Using sassy shads I was able to pick up a couple smallies, sheepies, with a stray white bass and crappie. Surprisingly I havent got a walleye or sauger there in a while, maybe too much poaching???

I hit the confluence and fished around pike island yesterday afternoon. nothing. saw one dinky perch follow my plastic to shore. Debating about whether or not to go back this afternoon for more punishment. If nothing else, I found a few agates and got about 6 or 7 miles under my belt yesterday.

Confluence fun doesnt start until we lose at least another 8-10 degrees, steady. I notice its best in the upper 50's or lower. The bait fish arent all there yet.

Fun fun

went back yesterday afternoon and hiked the shore up to minnehaha. caught a couple smallies, one ok sized, and a white bass. There were a few baitfish around, but not alot like you had mentioned channelfats. I agreee that it is early for the action to pick up.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
