Thursday Night Report

10 posts in this topic

Went out of Shakopee last night and landed 3 flats before the sun went down (30, 15, and 5). Also caught the first largemouth I've seen out of the 'sota.

Lost a couple bucks playing poker in the boat.

We were sitting at a creek mouth adjacent to some deep water. Had the baits in 6 or 7 feet.

Sounds fun! Nice night out the moon was alittle bright though but it went down quick. Had one run which turned out to be about an 8lber.

Anywhere but the Minnesota river this weekend. There are a couple of catfish contests going on this weekend and it will be a zoo from about New Ulm up past Belle Plaine.

How was the water level on this stretch for a 16'6" with 40 hp motor?

Pretty Hairy!! But doable.

I launched at Shakopee with a Lund 1700 Fisherman with 115 Yammi. And went a couple miles. Just have to be careful, theres a couple spots that are only 2-4 feet deep and there is always the occasional log sticking up out of nowhere.

I also live very close and am very new to cats, Let's see if anyone will go out with us some weeknite and fish the river. no boat but shore would be fine as I just want to learn about it and maybe catch one.

I was fishing there in Shakopee that night. My buddy got a couple of bullies from you guys when you were leaving. Didn't get nothing, just one run and got pulled into the timber. We're hopin' to get the boat repaired by this weekend and get out on the river somewhere.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
