I'll be visiting the folks for Turkey Day next week and would love to wet a line. Anyone willing to suggest a shore spot or two for some walleyes or sauger in the area? I'd really appreciate it and would be happy to put you on fish if you come down to the Rochester area. If you don't want to post the information my email is Anvalek @ hotmail.com Thanks in advance!!

The bridge over highway 25 should be done by then and that would be an excellant spot to try out. Since my boat is down for the count till some parts come in, you'll probably see me there as well.

How do I find out if the bridge is open by Thanksgiving? We go to Green Isle for dinner.

Thanks

According to MnDot, the bridge is expected to be open on or before Nov. 22. People have been driving around barricades and across the bridge already but I wouldn't recommend that!

Always room for you in my boat Brian if shore fishing doesn't work out for you.

Ran up from Jordan yesterday with Hooper and Dtro to BP only to find that the roads that they had built out into the river where dug out and used for the shoreline frown.gif. Hopefully they clean out the landing

You forgot to mention that you were the only one to put fish in the livewell?

Anyone looking for shore or boat company Friday morning? I've got the morning free, then I am going to try and find some pheasants in the afternoon.

I won't be around on Friday, suppose to knock some cement out of the barn so I can get more boats, cars in there. I still suggest fishing either the bridge or up to the first bend. I checked out the landing today ( bridge is open!)and there has to be a major cleaning out of the landing before anybody can back a boat in.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
