When NOT to fish.....

Recommended Posts

So....
Last night I hit the river at Peninsula Point Park in Anoka, hoping for smallies-n-kitties, comeraderie and a little peace & quiet. The following factors may have influenced our catch rate;
-Live bands with 10,000 watt PA's 1/2 mile away
-Pleasure boaters of all shapes and sizes
-An elaborate fireworks display with loud boom-booms

Next time I hit the Missy for night-play, I'll check my local community pages for Father Hennepin Days. Dohhhh

Good news....the New Guy got all the fish - bullhead and a young eager (& too dumb to hide) catfish.

Even the turtles were scared.

Didn't realize Anoka had something going on last night. Oh well. At least the bullheads Iowa Walleye's (bullheads) were biting. Better than getting skunked!

How is the fishing in that area otherwise?

The bugs weren't bad. A few skeeters, but that was it.

I wouldn't call it my favorite spot. The Rum was running REALLY high & fast, maybe 4 or 5 mph. Last summer I got smallies, redhorse & carp. Lots of people who speak an eastern European language I can only guess as Russian, fish it a lot for sucker & small carp. They usually have better luck than I do.

Hey Bro,
So how was the music and the fireworks display? j/k

Phil,
I'll pray that all goes well. Put me on the list of "folks to call" when yer child sees daylight!

As fireworks shows go, it was good. The music was...okay. I was reminded of why none of my bands ever considered a female vocalist for a rock-cover band....limited playlist. Ooooohhhh Bah-rah-cooda.

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
    • side_laker
      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports 
    • tview
      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
