Where where you at? Hidden Falls, Minnehaha Creek?

I was at Minnehaha last night and there were some fish caught I heard it was better earlier.

I'll be back at Minnehaha tonight. I thought about throwing out crawlers just to see what I might get. Last night I used all artifical and the fish wanted only live bait.

south of the toll bridge, but that fish did not come from the main channel. I went out again tonite, but got blanked. A year ago this saturday my dad got a 31 inch walleye of this spot so I am gonna hit it a few more times before I give up on it, but it is very hit or miss.

Here's a few fish from Saturday afternoon all caught from shore. As soon as the rain stopped these guys came out to play. The bite only last 20 minutes at most but it was fun while it lasted. 3 of these fish came on a total of 4 casts.

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
