Pool 2 report

Recommended Posts

GotOne

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.

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I’m not sure what all augers the clam extension fits. I know it fits ion because that’s what I use.. These things go right inside your drill and are adjustable from approximately 6 inches up to probably 14 to 16 inches, they work great. Take a look at them next time you see them in the store to see if they fit your auger. Mine stays on it all the time.
