I know of a couple of fish in the 40s coming out of the St. Peter area. Not on my line but friends of mine have been doin well. They were biting very light just pickin up the bait and sittin on it, last week. This week with having some nicer days the fish have gotten alittle more aggressive.

This weekend should be great if the weather holds.

Fished yesterday morning with dad, eyes weren't where i expect them to be, so we shifted gears, pulled into a back water stretch down from Minnecon Park ( The Cut for those of you who know the area ) And fished with minnows or nightcrawlers under bobbers. Dad was hoping for carp so he threw on a crawler, I thought maybe there is still some 'eyes back here and put on a minnow. 5 mins later we were both getting bites, then we started pulling in channel cats, 1-3 lbers, we caught 8 in all and one big sheepie. Wasn't what the trip was intended for, but still a good time.

Nothing huge, but I ended up with 7 catfish for Fri and Sat nights. Unfortunately nothing over 25 pounds. Maybe next weekend. Here are the highlights.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
