      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Poke-Snake-Cross question(s)..

Recommended Posts

LegattoAD

I know there's a no wake zone coming out of Pokegama and into the Snake, my question is how far downstream does it go? I remember seeing another bouy down by the first backwater area on the right (facing downstream) and am just wondering if that is the end of the first no wake or the beginning of another?

Also, are there any real hazards in the river between the two lakes that I'd have to worry about? I haven't ventured past the Mission Creek inlet yet.

I'm new to fishing the area and am trying to get familiar with it - I camp on the north end of the lake so if you see a somewhat beat-up looking blue Alumacraft driving around looking confused, that's probably me - stop by and say hi! smile

Thanks a lot guys!

No wake zones are typically marked by a buoy at each end. Usually in channels.

From pokegama downstream for about 1.5 miles is no-wake and ends at the sandbar with an old volleyball net. At normal water levels this section of the river is only 2-4ft deep so you'd want to take is slow anyway. A no wake zone starts again at the I-35 bridge and goes until cross lake. There are shallow areas in this section as well so use caution. Logs are the main hazards out there. Take it slow at first and you'll be fine.

Utilize the time while going slow. I've trolled jointed raps (flat raps would probably be better), and have absolutely hammered the pike from pokegama to the hwy. Nothing huge, but fun action nonetheless.

I seem to do okay with the pike as long as I'm fishing for bass! wink

Is the catfishing very good in this section of the snake river?

catfishing is very good in this section. just south of the volleyball net and then again in front of the big houses just west of the bridge.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
