A friend of mine went to the Minnesota river today. Two small Walleyes and a Flathead. On ring worms.

OK guys heres the scoop on the river out of Red Wing up by the (Contact Us Please). Adam and I picked up bait around 8 am, we made the (Contact Us Please), found an open spot and were fishing by 9 am. We didnt do well to start out, basically just tried to figure out what they wanted. After about 2 hours, we moved about 30 feet and started catching fish. At one point Adam caught 3 fish in 3 casts!!! All in all we got around 20 walleyes and saugers, the biggest being a 22.5 inch sauger. all caught on a 3/8 ounce jig with either hair or a hair gub on it with a fathead, in 12 to 17 feet of water. It seems we caught 3 or 4 times as many saugers as walleyes. colors seem to be less important then just letting the jig settle to the bottom and dragging it and twiching it from time to time. They are biting and biting well once you find the pattern. I would like to thank Adam for the company also he's a great guy and I had a blast catching fish with him!!! ....... Todd grin.gif

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
