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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
