Fished for eyes from 6:00 to 8:30 this morning in 20 fow. Lots of lookers, but not one taker. Moved out to 38 fow and marked fish but they weren't biting good at all and the ones I did catch were the smallest crappies I have ever caught on the river. Moved to 28 fow to try something different. Caught two small mouth, one 16 inches, the other 17, and an 11 inch perch that was shaped like a football. Fished until 2. Fun catchin the bass but a bad day for walleye and crappies. Anyone else have any luck?

UWLeagle-- Fished the high lines from 7:00 til noon, one 9.5" crappie. Plenty of lookers. The bite seems to have cooled down in the last 2 weeks.

Hopefully it picks up again soon. If this keeps up at this pace I might have to try a new lake.

Hey Jake you going to be out Friday morning? I am planning on being out there and set up by 6am. Blue is coming out to join me later in the day. I am wondering where you ran into those drifts that you got stuck in. I haven't been on the river in about three weeks and don't remember any drifts. Just don't want any problems as I am heading across from MN side in the dark. How did you do out there today? See you on Friday.

I am thinkin I should be able to make it out there early Friday morning. I was out there today and the drifts werent bad at all. The one I got stuck in was the only bad one I could see. Just make sure you are in someones tracks and dont try to plow through new ones cuz thats what got me stuck. Did terrible today. Read my new post. Hopefully the fishing will pick up with the nicer weather coming. Shoot me an email with your phone number and I'll give ya a call tomorrow night to make plans if you want. jheuston@hotmail.com

Course we all know fishermen are liars, "Nope, I have never caught a thing on the river. Far as I'm concerned I ciould fish out of my bathtub at home and catch more fish." Yep, and the beat goes on.............:)

Hey tunrevir, I usually do better in the toilet than the tub, it has more structure \:\)

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go. 
    • I fish, therefore I lie
      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
