Got some nice smallies up in the rocks and off the islands on Mepps spinners and Rapalas. Got a couple nice northerns too.

Congrats on the smallies. I'm itching to do some wading up around that stretch. It's on the top of my "waters I've yet to fish" list. It's tough with all the high water to start wading in unfamiliar waters. Oh well, someone's gotta do it smile.gif.

I wasn't wading myself. I brought my boat relatively close to the rocks and just used my trolling motor to do controlled drifts down the banks.

riverbasher,
Sounds like your right back in the saddle and didn't miss a beat. We'll have to meet up sometime. I used to fish that area quite often. Me, you , and Rob "Aquaman01" will have to hit that strech. Oh that's Rob's stompin grounds too.

Till then good luck

You bet, man! Phil, the move is alost over and I'm t h i s close to getting my life back! Relocating a 55 gallon tank with native fish should be a challenge!!

Good to hear ya got out, Jer! Did you launch in Dayton at the confluence, or in Elk River? I'm taking a couple of guys out Saturday evening - one from work and one who hasn't been fishing since he was 7. I can't wait to see his face light up with a hyper-active smallie or a fat fat kitty!

The Boy and I got out last week in Monticello and landed a couple of nice cats on cut-bait. A 5 & 6 lber. I love watching a bigger channel catch air 60 feet away!

Peace, ya'll
Rob

Rob and Mr Special,
I won't be around this weekend as I am going to Owatonna. I will be fishing there a couple of evenings this week though before I have to go back to my civilian job next week. After that I will still get out fishin, but not as much as I have this past month while on leave. Later

Jeremy

Saturday night, Phil. I can call you with location if you're interested.

Jer,
I bet the civilian job is gonna seem like a breeze, now. It's no longer "malingering" - it's called "eye trouble" - "Boss, I just can't see going to work today." grin.gif
