Hitting Pepin tomorrow and Saturday

4 posts in this topic

Hi all, I plan on launching at Colville tomorrow and Saturday, first open water of the year for me.

I've heard varying reports of debris, water levels, etc., and have checked out the DNR and Corps of Engineers web sites, I don't see anything too scary, anyone disagree?

I don't plan on visiting the dam, I want to stay mostly on the north end of Pepin itself targeting the Wisconsin side, anyone been over there the past few days?

I'm in a 21' Crestliner, green with an FM sticker on the back in case you're out, and I always keep my VHF on.

Harpoon,

I leave it on Channel 16 until hail to a different channel. I'm leaving the house at 7am tomorrow morning, be there before 8am. You can hail KPJ5BR and I'll pick up at that.

Thanks!

Well, just thought I'd leave a little report from today.

one 17" walleye in the boat, 4 or 5 other missed fish (really light biters), and one huge catfish foul hooked in the back.

And about 700 other boats. Went up to the dam, it was worse than 494 on a Friday afternoon, so left there and went down to fisherman's cut. That's where the walleye came from on jig and minnow.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
