Yak Time

33 posts in this topic

With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

Unfortunately as close as I came to pulling the trigger I'm going to put it off until next year (might be getting my hands on a little boat later this year though). Buddy of mine has a canoe that we're going to rig up best we can and get out a few times. I'll be buying some decent waders instead and adventuring out that way into the river. 

Thanks for the advice, it's killing me that I can't get out on the water! House downpayment takes priority though... unfortunately. :cry:

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
