hahaha. They're friendly! The only trick to your technique is "where to cast your bait". Right now, the rivers have been low. Keep to a hole for success. Come check out the cat forums.

Just south of the 494 bridge in SSP is a landing...anywhere

along the walkway..or about 1/2 miles s of the bridge is a

culvert....lots of people fish for cats there. Even catch a

occasional walleye, carp, etc.......

I was wondering the best time of day to go down and fish near the bridge. Ive been down there twice and only got one northern but it was still fun. I met a really nice guy that goes down there everyday and fish's.

Went down there Thurs night at about 9....Had one run a the

culvert at about 10:30. We didn't stay to long as the cold air got to the Florida boy. The best is usually a decent burst around 7-8 pm, and then again between 10 and midnite.

I don't know about early am hours. We used to run into lots

of people early in the spring, but haven't been going down there too much lately. Used some bullies on Thurs nite.

Since you are on the Woodbury area, there is a culvert on

Larry Ho drive and McKnight Ave that with crawlers and a jig

you can catch bullies. It is on top of a hill and along the

walking path. People will give you strange looks, but then

most cat fishermen are used to that. If you have kids, the

will have a blast catching the bullies and small sunnies down below the grates.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
