Help with spots

5 posts in this topic

Hey, me and a friend are gonna rent a boat from Beanies tommorow night for a couple hours. We will only have it a couple hours so I was hoping to make the best of it. We're hoping for Walleye/sauger or some bass.

Anyways me and my dad fish this area alot in the spring. I was wondering were some spots were that would give us a good chance right now. I was thinking under the 94 bridge, the tip of the point just down from Beanies, and under the powerlines. Any help would be much appreciated.

Those spots should be good - river is high and current is fast so you might want to find slow spots - like the WI side point by the bridge.

Thanks thats good to know. But one question if you read this in time, are you talking about the rocky shoreline right by the bridge, or the point with the private beach a little ways down?

Another good drift can be the channel when the water is high, the channel is at the swing bridge and flows to the I94 bridge. This spot is very popular in the spring and can be good in mid July as well. Stay fairly close to the shoreline and drift jigs vs. rigs as it's snaggy.

I meant the rip rap area right under and downstream of the bridge on the WI side.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
