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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
