Anyone tried fishing yet?

7 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has tried fishing some of the creeks or backwaters yet. Seems like fish would be in them to escape the current. I saw a boat trailer at the henderson landing today, but I'm not brave enough to take the boat on the river just yet.

well, if you bring your little friend along there, won't matter if the fish bite grin.gif

I've tried a few spots and I really think the water is too cold yet, at least for the white bass (first thing I normally target out of the MN). Usually when the carp are stacked up at the dam in town here you can find some fish. I was there the other night and no sign whatsoever.

Also tried another spot (Hello Dark30 grin.gif are you out there).

No fish at that spot either frown.gif

I say another week or two.

I've gotten a 6 ro 7 channels aready this year all between a pound to two and a half been fishing from shore.

I've seen 6 boats on the river since friday. Talked to a one of the guys monday and he said the water was 48 degrees. He didn't catch anything in the mouths of the feeder creeks.

I was out around Courtland area last Sunday, snagged one buffalo and lost one big somthing or other. We concentrated on the back waters looking for crappies and found water temps up to 46.5 degrees. I think in a week or two if we have warmer than average weather the back waters temperatures will be prime for the pickins.

We just got home this morning. I didn't get to fish as much as I had hoped but had a great time in the sun! One thing tho...don't ever go to Disney during spring break!!!! crazy.gif

I see the river is gonna go back up some more. I don't think anything much is gonna happen for another few weeks. We need to get some more real warm weather and rain to warm the water yet. I think it was towards the end of April last year before the whites woke up good....we'll see.

I'll post some clips in the video sharing area of some salt water action.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
