River eye help

5 posts in this topic

This year I was thinking of fishing for some river eyes.Where is the better areas to fish the river in the fall?

Shall I fish the shallow water by the deeper holes or the rock areas,inlets? Would it be of value to fish the areas where there are alot of shads swimming the surface ?

I will be fishing the evenings until midnight or so.

Thanks.

If your going to be fishing that late, I would stay shallow and hit the inlets and any kind of shallow sand ledges. After dark I usually use some sort of crank. up till dark I use grubs. White is my fav. with char leadhead.

I've got a few hours in now without a fish. Its just a little too early yet but I was hoping the usual haunts would produce at least a few. One night I stood by a creek outlet that was just full of bait. The fish were there feeding but when you got all that bait, its tuff to compete. The bait will dwindle and the water will get colder...I'm not going pheasant hunting!

I'm gonna swing by black dog west tonight....we'll see.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
