River Update 8/3

3 posts in this topic

Went out around 7:00 and the weather was great. Nice to actualy pay attention to fishing rather than sweating. Water up of course and cooler. Fish were more active and saw a lot of jumping going on. Ended up with 24 strikes total. Smaller fish same 12-15 inch might of had a bigger one one but did not make it to shore. Stayed till 9:30 and the fish were all over the shoreline coming back. A lot of times once the top water bait hit the water they hit on contact. I take pics of all the fish that actually make it to the shoreline so give me your e-mails and I can send them. All C&R!

Three of us out today, fishing out of a riverpro. We heard some ticking sounds a couple of times but made it upriver unscathed. Good day boating 51. A 19 1/4 and 19 3/4 were big smallies, two walleyes with an 8 lb tops.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
