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

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
