Fast Current??

4 posts in this topic

Fished the River on Sunday night after I put the boat away for the weekend. Fished my normal spots with little success. Caught 3 smallmouths 12"-15" and one 17" walleye. I moved from my "hotspots" and tried to hit some calm water behind some rocks. On each sides of the rocks the current was actually like rapids. It was EXTREMELY fast. I hooked a fish in the fast current, then another fish, then another and this went on until it got dark out. Caught about 10 more smallmouths between 12"-18" in current that was so fast that I could barely keep up with the lure when I was retrieving and 12" fish felt like 25 pound fish! Mu conclusion was that we just had a bunch of thunder storms pass through the area and the fish moved from the calmer, deeper holes I generally catch them inand moved to the fast rapids current because they felt safer???? I'll be back to my spot of Wednesday so I'll report where the fish have moved too now!

Nope, I am still a little father north. I have put alot of time and effort into finding a certain section of the river in the St. Cloud area that holds a TON of fish and lots of big ones. So far I never see anyone fishing it, so I really don't speak of specific location. Also you need waders to get to these location, no shore fishing.
I have been at 10th street **** a coupl;e times this year just for a few quick carp, have seen quit a few smallies caught!
