      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

River Pro Boat in Sartell

Recommended Posts

I was fishing by the dam on saturday and was wondering who was in the River Pro catching cats. I was in a Fischer boat.

I have seen alot of people down there over the past couple weeks. Its really frustrating knowing many of them are targeting walleyes because they admitted it to me. I have tried calling TIP but in 3 calls now, they have yet to respond once. The River Pro boater might have been Dave Genz i have seen him down there from time to time. Hopefully catfish is all you are targeting too eyeguy

actually we are after crappies.. we've been able to catch a few real dandy fish but the walleye and smallies and rock bass and catfish and northerns bite too. i was out again today and the river is way down. not going back till it rains good. I wouldn't get too excited about the kids down there catching and releasing a few walleyes. most likely small males. there's a gazillion of them.

Crappies, that is awesome. The river is down a ton for this time of the year. And yea from what these kids have been telling me at school the people down there are catching alot of big females, they caught a few 5-7 lbs. And that just seems like it could be harmful. Good luck opener, maybe i will cya around. I am planning on hittin up the river, not a big fan of huge crowds.

I was down at the Sartell dam and saw the big Jonboat and, I'm hunchin your boat. I agree probably the jon was Dave Genz.

You were located over toward to corner of the papermill I'm hunchin.

I believe you were in a v-hull. What size motor do you have? short shaft? Do you launch at the Sauk Rapids park on the east side of the river?

How difficult navigating the shallows?
thanks

it was a different guy. last saturday there were 2 river pros out. last night 2 guys in a beavertail boat were trying the river. neat lookin set up. the river is close to the low it was at last year. I have a 20 horse mercury jet that works very nice. rock city right now, many bolders showing and some just below the surface. last night I put in at wilson park and went all the way up to the dam. kinda crazy under the sauk rapids bridge!!

Hey EyeGuy,
How do you like your river Pro?
What model do you have?
Can you give me the Good the Bad and any changes you would like to see.
I just got off the phone with Kevin at River Pro and have interest in finding one. Have not seen it in the flesh and looking for feedback.
You can reply here -Thanks

The boat I have is not a river pro. I have a fisher 16 foot jon boat with a 20 horse mercury jet outboard. We found this set up for 4100.

Thats incredible eyeguy. I wish I had a setup like yourself. What does a 20 horse jet like that run these days?

Hey eyeguy

So that was you.It was good to meet you last saturday.I was in the River Pro that was there most of the day.Talked with you a little at the access.Didn't even know you were an FMer.By the way your anchor is still tied to the dam! I left one up there today too! smile.gifThe water is getting LOW.We launched at the same park as last week and knocked a few rocks on take off.Put a few scratches in the bottom but no dents!First scratches on my new boat. frown.gif I looked at the USGS water level site and it looked as though the water had only dropped a couple inches but when I got up there today it looked more like 6 inches.Not a lot of water in that river now.Maybee I will run into you again.

Heywood.
If you want to see a RP and get a ride let me know.I would be more than happy to give you a ride.
You should have baught my last boat.It was gently broke in and a steal. smile.gif

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
