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 was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
