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.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
