......hard work for a good bite....

6 posts in this topic

....seems the fish are biting....finding where can be the hard part. Jigs tipped with minnow working well for perch....chunks of crawlers on a plain hook settled to the bottom or dangled under a slip bobber also doing the trick.

...I do believe the size quality of the perch getting much better on the river....our best luck came in about 8 fow on sand beds with weeds near by....but one needs to move about, find some active fish, wait for the lull and move on....

I worked the river for a couple hours on yesterday morning. I was casting cranks to shorelines looking for some giant 'eyes but only came up with a handful of small walleyes. However, I did manage to get into some fiesty smallies. Then the rain really set in and I opted for my warm dry house!

How are things looking up by the Red Wing dam? I was thinking about giving it a try Friday. I tried this spot a few weeks ago and only managed a few fish. Seemed like it was quite "time" yet. What do guys think?

I was in to see Dean and pick up a new rod last night. We chatted walleyes for awhile and you are right. A few are being caught but its not quite "time" yet.

A week ago, i just trolled rapalas at 3.5 mph, and caught many walleyes and saugers... Excellent fishing times has occurred.
