Fisky's Right!

8 posts in this topic

Well after seeing Fisky's walrus i figured it was about time to let the shotgun and ducks rest and head out onto the river. Good choice! Sunday greeted me and a few buds with frost covered docks and that morning chill that lets you know deer season is almost here. We decided to try and head up river a little bit to get out of the pressure the windsock area was experiencing. Tried a spot that has produced in the past in about 15 ft of water. It wasnt rocket science, like everybody else we drowned our shiners with a 1 oz jig and in about 3 1/2 hours we had our limit of 15-18 inch quality walleyes. I also managed to hook into a nice 29" 10.4# that made the day. But like Fisky says...the best is yet to come!

The limit

Saved up vacation time. grin.gif

I rarely take vacation in the summer months, there are much better uses for it in the fall and winter. wink.gif

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
