Report from weekend of 10/3

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon campers, I had the pleasure of sweet talking mama and therefore receiving permission to fish 2 days last weekend. It's great having an understanding better half. Started out fishing Friday up at catfish bar with no success. The only presentations I tried were plastics and fatheads. Tried everything from 15 to 45 feet of water, nothing. To tell you the truth with the wind blowin like it was I wasn't tryin too hard, just wanted to find a calm spot on the water. Headed down to the Kinni to troll some cranks and drown some minnows and plastics. I did manage 2 eyes there on cranks and about a 6 pound sheepshead on a jig and minnow. Worked my way down the Wisconsin side just south of Kinni and didn't do too badly there. Trolled cranks through the schools of shad and managed 10 more fish (the largest being 24") all of which found there way back into the water. On Sunday I started out on the Mississippi just below the Hastings darn with no success so I worked my way down to Prescot. Fished just north of the bridge with a lindy and 6" redtail. Caught 8 more fish and decided to move up river. Fished a couple of points that drop off into deep water hoping to contact some larger fish. Marked lots of fish at the base of the drop but no takers, just a couple of little ones in 16 feet. Who would have thought a 13" walleye would eat a 6" chub.

Never Enough Time to Fish

Started fishing at 7am on Wed, Oct. 8th and caught 2 smallies, 1 largemouth and 1 silver bass in the first hour or so. Nothing else the rest of the morning. Tried trolling cranks, tube jigs and even the fly rod before ot got too windy. Was fishing the shorline south of the Kinni.

When I left at 1pm, the upper lot at the Bluffs was almost half full. Quite a few boats for a Wednesday I thought. Were there any other FMers out? How did you do?
