Well, the Miss was a miss for me.
I got 2 little dinks in a couple hours this morning down in the Anoka/Dayton area.
I had 6 other hits, but all those were dinks too.

Unbelieveable.I'm at a loss. It just can't be.....

Yowzer do I like senkos! Eric to say it was an awesome day fishing with you would be an understatement! It had to be one of the best days ever for me. And a bonus 9.5 snake for you for frosting on the cake. My 2 biggest were 18 and Erics were 18 and 19.25. Yowzer!!!!!!!!

BLB, the fishing was awesome near Monticello. Buzzbaits, Spinnerbaits and of course, Senko's were the ticket. I lost count, but I would guess we were in the 30-40 range. We fished from 2pm until 6pm.

Unfortunately the river is lower than ever and I don't think I'm going to try to navigate some of these areas again until the River goes up some. We were stuck half the day. Banging up the boat quite a bit.

Smallie, I feel your pain. I used to have a modified V-Hull, now it's a modified modified Semi V-Hull.

frown.gif All these pics and reports are making me drool! They need a smallie face thing with drool coming out! LOL.

Man, Eyeguy is mopping us all up with his smallie pics! Again, I'm missing out on the great action from Monti up to Sartell/Sauk Rapids! Hopefully that actions stays hot around Monti for this coming weekend's event.

Great catches everyone (except BigLakeBa$$ - LOL! j/teasing BLB)! I hope to have some pics of my own sometime soon. wink.gif

Oh man, now my cronies are on my case.
My counseling sessions are gonna need to be more frequent in order to get out of this hole. wink.gif
I need to redeem myself on the river ASAP. I can't finish off the fishing season on a note like that.
Hunting season is awfully close and focus will be diverted heavily.

BM
Did you go out or what? Or are you hiding behind a poor report too??? LOL

Wow, BLB firing back...LOL. You gotta love that guy tongue.gif LOL!

No reports for me. I took my youth group kids canoeing up on the 'Croix (Taylors Falls down to Osceola) on Saturday. I brought the rod along with a mini tackle box but only managed a handful of casts and about 4.5hrs of paddling! LOL! Everytime we stopped on an island to grab a snack from the cooler, I would make some casts, but nada. I didn't expect much, but was able to scout out some decent spots!

This Saturday you're missing out! Who needs a deer stand when you can have the smallie magnet bragging rights to keep you all warm and fuzzy all winter long... LOL.

I caught pocket bass on the Rum and missed a nice pike. I did catch a small walleye though. Nice treat, and released per usual.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos
    • certified jumbo
      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.
