I personally have not had a chance to get down recently, but I speak with parties every day that have been down to this part of the lake.

Your raps are the ticket right now, but be ready to do some color changing if your stand-by doesn't work. I'd be sure to have some sticks along and certainly entertain the live bait too, especially on the spinner rigs. Dragging the cranks though is preferable.

Straight across from Lake City and points downstream are also going great guns for the trollers. Basically everyone I have spoken with that have been down to Pepin fishing this week have do well, regardless of the presentation. The trollers though are apparently doing very well. Look for the breaklines down to 15 feet. The flats are doing well along the willows when the wind is blowing into them....gets a little rough though.

If the temps and weather cooperate the fishing should hold together pretty well now.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      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!
