1/7/08 Report

Since it looks like my previous report was erased I will repost it up again. I went to Bayport on Monday. I took the long trek across the river to the WI shanty town. I fished in the same area as the shanty town, but away from them. I was fishing in 38ft of water. I marked fish the whole time and caught quite a few also. I used plastics and artificial like crazy, but the fish will only bite live bait. I was using plain hook with minnow and sinker on one pole, and jigging demon eye with a whole minnow on the other. I caught a bunch of little crappies. All the little crappies were caught about 1-3 foot of the bottom. I caught 5 nice slabs ranging from 10-14 inches. These slabs were suspended higher in the water, they were all caught from 30-28 ft of water. the slabs were real finicky, a minnow could be in front of them and they would not bite it. I had to jig it and lift it up about a foot and they would follow it and lightly swallow the bait. If you miss the light bite and didnt set the hook they were gone. Here is a picture of one of the slabs I caught. Good luck yalls and stay safe.

Nice crappie Honda, and thanks for the report. It sure can make a difference in the bite when you can get out during the week when there is less traffic.

I have a shack i keep out on the river and i only use whole minnows. I keep about 10 to 20 a day and throw ALOT back. I use the bigger crappie minnows cause when i use the smaller ones all i catch are the small throw backs.

Hey Honda or anyone who is interested to fish, email me if you like to get together out on the croix sometime. I a new to the croix at least for the ice part of fishing and could use a hand to learn how to fish the river during winter. yellokong@msn.com

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
