I live on the Miss just west of becker so I sure can give you reports if youd like...and yes its still pretty high. Every time it starts to go down we seem to get some more rain and up it goes again. I,ll keep you posted on when it starts to go down again.
Later, Pete

Guys,
Don't let the high water turn you off to fishing the Miss. The smallies are really going "great guns" right now and they are really concentrated in the shallows. Pitch jigs and plugs to any shallow rip/rap type shoreline and hang on! Nav

Oh yeah...they are incidental fish for me until this Saturday. The walleyes are "literally" hanging in the same areas as the bass! On my last trip I caught two walleyes, aprox. 16" in length and my next pitch "bang" an 18" smallie from the same hole! Nav

I just got a new job today at Great River Energy, there is a GREAT park right across the street that some folks were catching walleyes and smallies during their lunch breaks...

Walleye GFA -
The outflow from the plant (your plant now, I suppose) is under that big concrete semi-circular deck upriver from the park. If a guy who works there knew the water temp and wanted to share it with say a guy who doesn't, he could really help a guy out wink.gif The back-current from that thing is over a rocky bottom.

Now you work in the neighborhood I fish in.

Kevin-
If I see you out there, which RP is you? I keep seeing a beige hi-pro a lot. Sunday I saw two beige hi-pros, a green low-pro and a green hi-pro.

      With the snow that fell last night, that literally is glued to the ice from the warm temps and light rain; and now seeing more in the forecast, it's sure setting up to be a very dangerous early ice season out there. Even Mud didn't freeze well. Only about an 1.5" a hundred yds from the road on Saturday. YIKES!
    • Chill62
      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.
    • Rick G
      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!
    • Bass Thumb
      That's what happened to mine too.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.
