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

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
