Hey SE MN Fisherman!
If you have the means, it's time to hit the river!!! I experienced one of the best bites I have seen, especially for sauger, on the river. Not cigars either. THe MIss gave up near 60 fish for Turk and myself. Some reached the 3 pound range!!! Yes, 3 pound saugers!!! I caught one that might have exceeded that! SOme "sand pike" appeared as fat as they were long!!(SEE MISS FORUM).

If you want to learn more about the Mississippi river or the St. Croix, set up a day with Turk Gierke from Croixsippi Guiding Services(! I'm ecstatic! What a blast. Saturday was the colder day, yet I don't recall feeling cold!!? Good indication of an awesome bite!

Sarge and JA SAY TREE, Turk on more than one occasion, mentioned he wish either one of you guys could have been there with us! There WILL be a next time!!!

THanks again Turk!!!

PS. Thanks for helping me bend my rod, over and over again!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like you had a great time!

And no lightning either, wish I didn't have to work so much!!

Turk sure does know his stuff, that article on anchoring was very good, and to see it done in the dark of night, and end up exactly where he wanted to put the boat was pretty amazing. Are we going back to try and catch moster cats next year?

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
