It'll still be plenty crowded on a Friday. A lot of people don't work fridays and then there are the guys that are laid off and people that are staying in the area on a fishing trip. If you want to have it a little more quiet, go on a weekday like Tues or Weds. and fish either early in the morning or stay there till dark. And yes, with less pressure, the fish will bite better and you will be able to fish more spots.

I'll be making my first run down there for the year tomorrow(wednesday), going solo since most people I fish wish have normal jobs and only can fish on weekends, hopefully I'll be able to find some fish without all the crowds around.

To get to the store take 61 south into town and turn right at Perkins. Go underneath the bridge and where the first building on your left past the Super 8.

I'll be here at 6 am.

You guys might need a larger minnow scoop to keep them customers coming back. Just a little constructive criticism.

I was down at Ike's Sunday morning and bought minnows. I don't much pay attention to how many minnows are in the scoop, I fish alone and never go through a whole scoop anyway, but I will say this:

Those were some of the liveliest and spunkiest fatheads I've had in awhile!

And they stayed that way all day!

So my two cents are, even if the scoop is smaller (I have no reason to doubt Norksy), I personally prefer quality over quantity.

Norskey - sorry you feel the way you do. When I scoop I try to get as many as I can in the scooper. My dad tells all of us to get as many as you can so we please the customers.

Give me a call and when you stop buy again I'll give you two FREE scoops. Just ask for Shawn.

Thanks for the critisim.

The two scoops I bought yesterday morning was more than fare. Minnows were lively and last all day.

Thanks. grin.gif

      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.
