We were out last weekend and the perch were hitting on the waxworms pretty good. Too bad they were all 3" long! Couldn't even get them to look at the shrimp.....

We used mainly euro larve in red on Rattlin Varmits and Go-devils. The larvae was much better than minnow heads.

I am going to try some plastics tomorrow(Fri) for some perch. Never tried it before. Anyone ever try plastics for perch? I won't give it to long, then I will switch to larvae or minnow heads.

I just got home from the pond, stayed at Dickie's and what a hole that was. First and last timer there. Anyway, I tried shrimp and waxies, and shiners and rainbows. Heads, different colors, glows, you name it and couldn't buy a bite. They would come up and look at it and that was it. Tried more aggressive, less aggressive and went smaller and still nothing. All I can say is have plenty of beer, the cards, and good friends to [PoorWordUsage] with cuz it may be slow.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      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.

      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.
