Ok, I'm married now. Its great to be married, but I've basically missed a whole summer of fishing. And to top it all off, my phone finally croaked and I lost all your phone numbers. Anybody have any fall fishing plans yet?

Ben,

Cangrats Ben on getting married...what, you got a Honey-Do list a mile long now? Since my motor fried, my fishing has been very limited. Hopefully I'll have things running in a week. Would like to get out with you again on the river for some smallies, or float tube on lake X. Give me a call, 763-404-0891, we'll plan something. I'll probably be gone most of the weekend though. Have a safe holiday!

Ha thats funny...the "Honey Do" list is currenly long enough that I probably won't be doing any fishing this weekend anway. I was telling Cyberfish that I'm getting all pumped up for ice fishing, although perhaps its abit early yet. We'll have to get out and do some fall fishing; I'll give you a call.

Yeah I think so. I live in Roseville now, but I commute to work in Maple Grove. So after work this winter that puts me within striking distance of any lakes in Plymouth or even Sarah or Independence. There are many lakes between Maple Grove and Roseville off 694, and I would also like to check out White Bear Lake and Bald Eagle. I'm also not all too far from Chisago Lakes area, so I definitely have some exploring to do...

Hey Mike--What's that evolutionary mutation you're holding onto in your picture?!?! I'd be ashamed of such a beast in such a nice kayak-ak-ak-ak!!

Yesterday I took a friend to the Crow River out by Rogers. It was uncharted territory and all we caught was a redhorse and one small bass. Water was rising and it looked sort of like coffee creamer, so that probably affected the fishing. First time out since the last week of July.

Carp,

I know this is short notice, but if you want to get out for a couple hours tonight, let me know. My boat situation is different (better) now.

Sorry Casey, I got your message abit late. You know I get off work in the northwestern suburbs, so If you want to hit the Mississippi or 'Tonka some night after work, I'd probably be game for it. Anything going on next week?

For weekdays, sept. either 11th or 15th would be best. If you want to get out on the river saturday afternoon/evening of the 16th, that would work too.

I am mostly musky hunting Mon thru Wed and occasional Friday night. Saturdays in the fall I plan to chase smallies and eyes on the river. BUt if you guys get into a hot non-tubing lake let me know. I'll drag the boat over and take you out.

Can only get out for two hours but I am going to give it my best. Pre front fishing is too good to pass up.

Cyberfish,

That's the second time you tried to kill me with your float tube terrorism!

Wow, I should've made it out! I ended up taking my brother out and doing some wade fishing on the Crow River near Rogers. Other than a cigar sized smallie, we caught diddly squat. It was sure nice to be out though. The funnest part of the outing was watching my bro try to wade across the river...knee deep, belly button, chin...I thought he was going to break out in a crawl stroke before he turned back.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

    • How are things progressing friends as far as Fall colors? Thinking of coming up the week

      Thanks

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.
