I just may have a few hours free this weekend to test your hand warmers on the rod trick. I bought a few to try it since I HATE fishing with gloves! I drive a 14 foot duck pattern grumman with a Yamaha 30horse. Good luck to all, sundays shaping up to be shorts weather, 46 degrees! grin.gif(well not really shorts per say)

15'-38 up and down steep drops mark lots of fish just weren't active, no I never went past the kinni only went as far as the bluffs park, lots of fish in that area just couldn't get them to bite! Tried 4 different color jigs, several different gulp colors and fatheads on lindys the only walleye came on a gulp minnow and white jig

Dumb question, is the bluffs frozen over? I may go out tommmorow, but would be upset if i get there and I have to break ice.

I would guess that there would be some ice in the launch area. I wouldn't pick that launch with a glass boat. Hopefully somebody with first hand info can chime in...

The bluffs launch is fine its warm enough yet so there's no much icing, helpful tip bring a bucket of sand just encase you need to though in down! Big Jeff and I will be out in the morning plan on fishing from 7-3, see you on the water!

walli1, looks like the buck I've got in my back yard!!! I've got a nice 10 pointer that's sporting 10 inch G2's and 8 inch G3's. There's also 2 trash rack 6 pointers as well walking around. If only. Sandmannd and I were getting ready to go hunting during opening weekend and I was putting my stuff outside, when I'm letting the dog out to do her thing and she freezes up. I've got my gun cased in my hand, and go to see why she froze up, only to see the 10 pointer standing at 20 yards giving me a broadside shot. I was not the happiest person at that time.......

2007 will no doubt go down as one of the top years on the river for the amount of eyes I boated, 2003 for the most C&R by far. This year caught quite a bunch of C&R but only a handful over 24" with the largest being 28 1/2", next year is going to be great all those 12-14" will be legals, can't wait but hey I'm going out in the morning, see you on the water!

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
