pool 2 advice / suggestions

4 posts in this topic

I'm going out (finally) thursday. I don't need specifics, just general help with where and what's been working lately.

Planning on going out of either 494 or St. Paul Park landings. Just general info please. IE wing dams?, back waters?, channel?, go to pool 4?, stay home? lol. Blades, meat, ringworms, paddletails..... ??? I've got them all ready to go.

A little "nudge" in the right direction(s) appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If anyone cares, I'll be in a black / tan Smokercraft w/ Merc o/b. Stop and chat if you see me or don't want to give advice to the "world". I respect the privacy that seems to be maintained on the Pool 2 thread.

Thanks again.

Goose: I've only been out once in the last week on Pool 2. No luck for me between the confluence and the dam, and I haven't heard any solid reports from anywhere on the Pool. Pool 4 might be a better option.

If you do fish Pool 2, I'd probably opt for fishing off-channel areas around 494 and downstream. This is a time for transition as the walleyes are probably finishing up spawning. They're also responding to droping flow rates. The flows are probably still a bit high for a good wingdam bite, thus I'd look for off channel areas.

Better fishing on Pool 2 is probably just around the corner.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
