Heading up this weekend...

2 posts in this topic

If the weather forecast remains the same or better it sounds like were heading up to fish on the East side of Franz Gevne Saturday and Sunday. We're launching on the Canadian side and motoring towards the rapids. If anybody has fished between Franz Gevne and Manitou, let me know, we'd like to compare notes from previous years.

Never fished this far east in the spring, usually down around vidas, but I was wondering if someone could tell me approximately how many rigs can park at franz jevne. I pulled in there last year but it was full of snow. Doesn't look like anyone is going to be fishing west of birchdale this weekend. We're leaving East Grand Forks at 2am on saturday, so that should put us on the water by 6:30.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
