I have not been out in the st. cloud area for awhile. Just wondering if there are any recomondations for a morning or day time walleye bite. Any recomondations would be appreciated.

The chain has been kicking out fish during the day. Some very nice ones as well.

I'd give the river a try, this time of year has always been the best for me out there. Find the holes between the Rice bridge and the old Pirate's Cove.

Definately give the chain a shot!

Thanks guys, both options sound pretty. I would assume that during the day live bait is probably the way to go?

St. Cloud Walleye: Where is the Old Pirates Cove? Never heard of that one before? Years ago I used to go to SCSU and used to fish the river a lot but I have since moved to the cities and don't get up there much anymore. I am seriously thinking of going back in a few weeks though.

The Pirates cove used to be a few miles north of Sartell on the east side of the river.

It's just south of Gordens bridge. I belive it's going to be a housing development now.... My normal spots on the river were difficult to fish a week a go that current is nasty. Haven't been able to make it out latley gearing up for rifle season and trying to seal the deal with bow yet. I have to wait another 2 weeks to hit the river again. Good luck grin.gif

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required.

      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
