My father my uncle and my self will be heading up 26-29.Was wondering about river current, and how it will affect us. Last year we were using 3/8oz. jigs and drifting. I've heard some talk about having to go up to a 3/4oz. Are these guys anchoring and thats why they have to go with so much wait, or is the river just moving that fast. Also when we came up last year we where fishing 18-24 FOW, it sounds like everything is alot shallower, is that because of high water.

Any insite will help

THANKS

Not to tough being nice to fishermen! Can't imagine another type of clientelle with a lower "A-Hole Factor". Yeah, kind of bittersweet when we're full, especially when we have to turn away regulars. My mortgage holder likes to see the payments keep coming though.

The parking lot can get pretty tight after dark but give us a shout if you can squeeze in! Seems like boats and trucks get bigger and longer every year and our parking lot gets smaller.

If you read my posts you know I would rather knit a sweater than anchor but it does appear to be the way to go right now. We did have a group that were catching good eaters at anchor but got tired of it and drifted and picked up several upper 20's, so find some slower water behind a bend and give it a try.

Hey walleyeguy, not sure what arrangements you've made but we just had a kichenette open up. Give us a shout if it works for you.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
