I usually fish By monticello, from my limited catfish experience, its your typical channel catfishing. I use crawlers/cutbait/frogs in fast current at night. I have some stuff to do sunday morning/day but hopefully I can get out for the evening bite. I have a spot that was real good, but has been alittle slower as of late. The river is alot shallower/clearer than you are probably used to. If you are interested in some evenign fishing in the Moni area shoot me an email tipt @ gmail.com and we could meet up.

I might have to drive a little. I have fished below the dam there before, not real exciting. Maybe I can find some spot for some smallies or something. Not fussy, just want to do some fishing and some catching.

I will be on the road heading south by 0900 am.

Wiskers...

There are some great spots more towards Clearwater with deeper holes and woody debris close by... Been seeing many cats in the fast water but the bigger ones still hanging deeper during the day... drop me a line

(in profile), I should be able to point you to a couple areas...

Well I got back in one piece. First day was not good. Fished from shore all day and did not land a fish. Water was so very low and not knowing where I could access the river for good spots I did not have much luck. Luckly I ran into Mike, He was up for some fishing and he took me out in his LoPro. That was a blast. We got onto some fish but it was still a bit slow. Never the less, I was in a River pro, on the water and catching fish.. It does not get any better than that.

Thanks a million Mike. I owe ya one.

Check out the video running the rock rappids.

Sorry for the bouncy vids... It was not windy at all, all the white water you see and the waves are from boulders just below the surface of the water.. I would like to see even an outboard jet try that stretch with out tearing off the motor.

I have to tell ya, I cut out part of the video..... The darndest thing about racing down that river... The wild life is not scared of boats at all.... The ducks and geese do not even move.. they just sit there until you almost run over them and they are all over the river in big flocks... You can not avoid them. Wow that was wierd. All you would need is a RP and a dip net and you could save your self some big $$ on shot guns. LOL...

cool- small world (cliche I know)

too bad I didn't have any gear with me that day~ I used to fish the Beaver islands quite a bit back when I went to school at SCSU- best classes I ever skipped! even a bad day fishing is better than a good day (insert non-fishing activity here)!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
