Between yardwork,FM sales work and getting the race car and trailer ready and also getting the boat ready there is no time for fun now. blush.gif

Now, when that is all done this next week, look out as Tom will be back in action. cool.gif I cannot complain as I hunt and fish almost all year long. smile.gif Sometimes things do need to get done. frown.gif

Thanks for thinking of me and my lack of fishing. In a few weeks it will be catfishing, mushroom picking, racing and the trip to the Sturgeon event. Then it will be racing and fishing all summer long until bow hunting in September and then all fall hunting and fishing again. Its just one big circle.

Sometimes a little work in between. Takes money to play and I play alot. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Sounds like many lakes are open or nearly open. That ice sure did go fast. Heck, it wasn't more than 1.5 weeks ago when TO and I saw 18" out there!

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
