Just a few hours ago while enjoying a beverage on deck I was pleasantly suprised to whitness 2 dozen or so odd wild turkeys march across my bow heading up river and up the beach. Organized by hieght they went single file, slowly intent on some destination known only to the most senior of urban turkey society. Never have I seen even 1 one venture this close to the denaturalized zones. There leader must be very persausive indeed. Just thought I'de share.

That's cool Kobanon. I saw at least a dozen near the mouth of the Minnesota about a week ago. I also saw some otters swimming around Pike Island. I've never seen them around there before, have you?

Since your talkin turkeys, I had 8 with two toms, one really nice bearded one, and 6 hens. But what makes this so odd is that I live in the heart of east St. Paul. We only have about an acre behind our house and the and the apartment buildings and the last two days they have been browsing. Waiting til sun up to see if there still there today.

Vern No I've never seen otters that far up river, however thats good news last i heard they where around redwing and growing. For that matter i have never seen turkeys there either. lots of cyotes though (pardun the spelling. ps. I may have seen an otter back in 02 near down town stp though ive never been sure about it .

PB. No not this season I need a change of pace I 'm going to stay down in the inver grove area and spend some time in the back waters

I saw a flock of turkeys along side of I494, just east of the Mississippi River, a couple of weeks ago. They were just feeding on the side of the hill.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
