River Fishing

13 posts in this topic

I am heading up to LOW this weekend and have never fished there in the fall before. We are staying at Riverbend and I was wondering where to start in the river. I was hoping for as little travel as possible, but am open to anything. Any advise would be great.

It looks like FM faithful will own the River Bend this

weekend. See you all at breakfast.

The river fishing is very easy, it requires some patience.

If your watch other boats you will find that they are

every where. If you try to anchor on the edge of the river

channel so you swing back and forth over a couple of foot

difference in depth that is what most will be doing.

You will not have to travel far. Bring warm clothes.

And have a good anchor. On the river a good anchor is

a sea spike style anchor. Most other anchors will not

hold you and that can ruin your weekend in a hurry.

Make sure your rope is long enough as well. I think the formula is that you need like 3 times the depth of the water to set an anchor to hold well.

My dad bought and used a substandard anchor last weekend in his boat. I should say he attempted to use a substandard anchor last weekend. He had to reset about 50 times. He did have plenty of rope length.

I'll be up at Adrian's this weekend in my boat with my dad, and step mom. Black and Tan Alumacraft TS185.

Curt,

Do I need to bring my goggles for breakfast? I've heard the toast can be flying pretty good.

You should see what happens when he attacks the pancakes and hash browns!

Sometimes you have to let a guy have his space. grin.gif

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
