Just wondering if anyone has been fishing the Highway 55 bridge for sunfish yet. They should be bitting soon and hope someone out there has tried it already. thanks, ff

I stopped by there yesterday afternoon on the way home from work and talked to a couple of the guys fishing near the bridge. They had not caught anything at that time. One said he was fishing for crappies, but if you ask me, he's a couple weeks early. Maybe he was just marking his spot for the upcoming shoulder to shoulder battle under the bridge.

I didn't make it down there this weekend, but I heard at the baitshop that they were starting to catch some sunnies on sat. evening. They should definitely be moving in there soon. This week will be a safe bet. Might even try it out tonight. I'll let ya know how it goes.

I made it down there this morning. The water level was way to high to fish. You cant even stand under the bridge without waders. A couple guys where there and had a few sunnies but not many. The water is moving to fast to fish. It might be a couple weeks till it goes down. ff

thanks for the report, i didn't get down there. sounds like a boat is going to be the way to go. if there is that much water around, the whole channel from koronis to rice will be pretty good. but it seems that they always like to pile up near the bridge. that system needed a good flush, there has been a big problem with getting between the two lakes the past couple years. but there always seems to be crap floating in the current when people go up river and start stirring it up. that shouldn't be happening with the deep water this spring.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
