So what is the scoop?

5 posts in this topic

I know most people have been deer hunting but come on there has to be people fishing the river still? I am holding out from storing the boat until I get up there one last time. Any reports to be given? Are the docks still in at Wheelers and Birchdale?

Fishing and catching has been darn good. Docks have been pulled as of Tuesday where I've been launching lately so I'd guess they've all been yanked up and down the river by now.

No crowds out there this time of year thats for sure!

a couple of my buddies went up last weekend, caught a lot of fish, but no hogs they caught 2 that were 25 other then that mostly 18-22. Not as many 12-14 inchers. I'm heading up one, maybe two more times, but going to hold off until after turkey day

Fishing is still incredible on the river. My buddy and I toughed out the cold and put the wood to them on Saturday. Caught about 30 walleyes catching and releasing about fifteen 20 plus inch fish. We had our best luck casting and retreiving with 1/2 oz jigs tipped with rainbows. Funny how sometimes casting will produce while other times over the side jigging seems to be best. Mr. Heater in the boat was a flat out requirement to keep hands from turning to ice. Didn't land any "Hercules" fish, but really nice fat quality fish, and nothing under 15 inches. These fish my guess are biting all the way up the river, but don't leave home without your big jigs! By the way my hands are still a bit cold from yesterday! THERES ONE!

      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.
