Rum River Smallies

7 posts in this topic

Anyone hit the Rum this past summer or recently this fall? Might give it a go for smallies one of these warmer days.

I tried Saturday for a few hours in Anoka. Surface temps were 44*F. Didn't get a bite

Thanks for the input, Craigums! If I may ask, what types of baits were you throwing?

I've had a good amount of luck on finesse jigs and smaller tubes this time of year.

Thanks!

Got out yesterday on the Rum.  This is the latest (2 days before Thanksgiving) that I have ever been on the Rum or open water.  The river is 6' higher than two weeks ago.  Only caught 2 small walleyes but still great to get out one last time.  My friend took his boat a 16' with 50 hp motor!!!  No problem at all navigating.  We could have waterskied if we had wanted to.

Was out on the Rum this past weekend, east of Princeton. Good Lord is the water high!  Is there a website where you can monitor the flow on the Rum?

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
