Pool 2 report

4 posts in this topic

Had a good day on pool 2. Five hours on the water 11 walleyes/sauger, 1 crappie, 1 cat fish and a over 25 silvers. We had a great spot by Watergate catching a couple walleyes and a bunch of silvers. A group of 5 people saw us catching almost one right after another. First 2 of them ran around the bay and starting casting right in front of our boat. They started catching a few and one of them gets on a cell phone and the rest of the group comes running over. They chased an older guy out and just kept casting all around us when we would troll back and forth. Keeping every single one they caught. I was just waiting for them to catch and keep a walleye so I could have called TIP, but they never did. They just didn't have a clue. We moved up by the locks and pulled a few more Walleyes and then left. Even with the clueless, it was a great day on the water.

Wallabee,

I was out there this afternoon also. It almost sounds like we were in the same boat! Caught some walleyes, sauger, lots of whities, sheepshead, pike, a cat & a crappie. We vertical jigged Fireballs & fatheads most of the day. Threw some small jigs & cranks at the white bass too which was fun. I'm guessing that you saw the same people keeping the white bass that we did. Every fish went into the bucket. When I saw them wheel away the first bucket with a dolly we decided to call TIP. They kept every fish we saw them catch over 5-6 hours. How many fish do you need? I talked to a CO on the way out & he said that he'll go down & check on them.

We thought they had another bucket and didn't see it when we came back. I can't believe how they came running over and fished right next to this older guy, he left soon after. I not kidding, they were casting 5 feet away from our boat. My buddy finally starting casting toward them. I didn't have the reg's, so I didn't know if there was a limit on white bass. Two adults and my son in a blue Lund. Buddies boat, don't remember model, it was blue:) Sure was fun.

The limit is 30 which we confirmed with the CO at the park. It tics me off to see that kind of rudeness & greed. Anyway, I'm sure I saw you guys. We had 3 in a Crestliner Fishhawk. Can't wait to get back out. Lot's of great sight seeing yesterday including turkeys, pelicans, funny looking dogs & boats & a pair of deer that swam across the channel near Pike Island. There's always something interesting going on down there. See you on the river.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
