Just wondering if there are any reports around the CF area (within 45 min). Will be in Cannon Falls this weekend and have never fished around there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Last I heard, the only Whitebass/stripers thru the ice have been on Mazaska, earlier in the year. I get them sometimes in the spring on the stretch of the Cannon River between Bylesby & the Miss. River.

Speaking of ice fishing Byllesby, I was out there form 4:30-7:45 last nite. Thinking that the front coming in would make for a good "Bite". I was wrong. at least for me. Had one bite & it had to be at one of the only times I left the shack. I was 15 ft away , getting a brew out of my truck & the rattle reel went off. By the time I reached the shack, fish was off & gone.. Bummer. I wanted to stay later, but needed to get back to the house.

Have to try again later..

GoodLuck to ya!

Thanx Tyler, Yep, It went back right after the pics.(taken 4-5 yrs. ago) It could have been a state record, I'm thinkin, Had it been later in the year.(Mn. record 18+" @ 4.4 lbs) It was around 20-22" using the can= approx 4-/34", & we guessed the weight at 3+ lbs. Seemed skinny for the length, at the time. It was pretty cold that day , so gil54p(< FMn. Member) took the pic & back down the hole it went, for someone else to try & catch. I don't put fish on the wall, & it was a fairly rare catch for Lake Mazaska. Maybe 30 sec. - 1 min. exposure to the air. We were fishing for crappies. used minnow & bare hook w/splitshot.If I remember correctly, About 20 FOW deep, fishing 18' down.

Nice Memory for me..

\:D

Go FIsh ;\)

We tried byllesby, circle, and fox- nothing.

Saturday afternoon and sunday ended up on the river by Frontinac-lots of small saugers, 4 17-18in, 2 10in and 1 15in walleye, and 2 whities. Lots of people out there even with the wind.

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
