Anyone been out on the river lately? I'm thinking about getting out a couple times this weekend and wondering if it would be worth it or if I should hit up one of the area lakes. Good luck on the horned critters this weekend all!!

Did a bit of shore casting the other day. Best action was under the Oliver bridge. Nothing special just a few decent eyes, 1 pike and I think I had a crappie on. Hair jigs and plastics on a jig. Tossed a couple cranks with no luck.

I would concentrate on deep stretches after flats just like the one below the oliver bridge or before walleye alleye. The mudslide may pay off with some Crappies.

My boat was cleaned up but if I get decent weather Tues/Wed I may have to give it one more try.

Let us know how ya do.

No I worked all weekend and my furnace took a crap so I didnt get out at all.

Ill be out tonight after work (3pm) and then the next 2 days look good as well. Then its time to winterize the boat and get set for ice fishing.

Docks are pulled up river so I will probably put in under the High Bridge.

Went out on the St. Louis for about an hour an a half last night and found the best walleye bite I've found all year on the river. Fishing the channel break on the wind side. 23-27 ft was best. Caught 14 fish, biggest was 22.5" and smallest was 15". Majority were fat 18". They would inhale the jig, it was what walleye fisherman dream of for a jig bite. Be back out one last time tonight hopefully.

Sorry Northlander I tried to send you an email last night but it must not have went through. Went back out last night and only caught one 18.5" and had a few other hits. The boat is now put to bed....unless we get another warm spell.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      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.
    • delcecchi
      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.
