Are you from Cook? I think you guys lived just down the road from us. We lived by the Alango school? I doubt you know me but you probably know my brother and sister. Matt and Sarah Lohry.

right. I've been watching those videos you put on there. pretty cool. I want to try taking my boat out there this year around st peter. any danger spots I need to look for? I know nothing about the minnesota river. I figured i wouldn't get into to much trouble in a 14 foot boat though.

St. Peter has it's danger zones, especially during low water. No matter how big or small the boat, when that lower unit smacks a sunken log, your in trouble wink.gif

Reading the river is the biggest thing. When you first go out, go upstream so you can float back if needed. Stay in the middle on straight stretches and follow the outside on the bends. If during you path something gets in your way......turn. grin.gif

Thanks for the info. maybe i'll run into you out there. If you see a small silver boat named "Ditka" stop and say hi.

D4, I fished this stretch during high and low water with 16'6' boat last couple years. Not too bad, watch for obvious obstructions and remember to keep to the outside bends where it will be deeper. Sometimes you might think it is too close to shore but if its cutbanks you might only be 3 feet from shore but 14'-15' deep. Good luck.

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.

      First place to look would any of the local dams. Gull river, Mississippi, Crosslake, all have fish throughout the year.   There are a few piers to try as well.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?
