Getting ready to get back on the Mighty Miss this weekend. Has anyone had any success from the confluence to the dam? Any of the community spots been producing?

If I have any luck, I'll post on Monday.

Good Luck fishing guys!

hey fleeced

I got on pool 2 twice last week for the first time this year and did ok. I haven't made it up to the dam yet, we fished between the confluence and hidden falls. We tried the confluence the first day with no results although it was still a few hours before dark.

The first day we boated 12-15 walleyes between eight and seventeen inches and the second day we boated about 6, all fish were caught in slack water just off the main current in 8 to 14 fow.

good luck, i might make it down there tomorrow weather permitting.

I have always done better in the back waters early in the spring. More so after it gets dark them to be in there feeding better. During the day the lock area does well, but you need to fish very slow. Crawling the jig on the bottom or slip float systems have done well.

Thanks for the info guys. I took a bit of a hiatus with the cold weather, but was back on P2 today. Fished from Watergate to the dam with some limited success with some smaller males. A beautiful day to be on the river. Temps were just under 42 degrees and the water level is down from last week.

I hope my boss doesn't read this site. shocked.gif

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
