I will be out on Mary on Sunday looking for the big crappies. Always do well with the beetle spins early there.

Was out on Mink/Somers on Sunday and the action was very slow. Lake was way down compared to years prior. Water was very stained. But you know what, I was out and got my lines wet smile.gif

There are certain areas that the fish were going crazy till the sudden weather change wed nite.Fishing on thursday was poor at best. It has been a werid start. The place i am fishing normally has a week or two of a warming period before the bite starts.This year the ice left the area on This past Sat and the fish started biteing on Sunday.Sundays bite was all smaller fish. Monday thru Wed was Great. Most of the regulars(10 of us)have fished this area for as long as 30 years. Out of This group only 1 of us has seen this happen before right as the ice was leaving the lake and said the bite will last as long as this nice weather then shut down.Boy was He right!!!

Cold weather kind of bites, doesn't it? But oh... they're going to go wild on the next warm up! Be there or be skunked.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
