How is this stretch of the river for channel, flatheads and sturgeon? I'm always looking for a new strecth to fish.

The lower section of pool 4 is probably the best flathead water in all Minnesota for size and numbers. Oh yeah and you don't have to fish out of a dingy boat but can use a big boy boat with the navigation channel marked so moving at night is a breeze.

Great question - I am looking for the same info...especially after watching a 25-30lb flattie caught last week up by the dam. By lower section I'm assuming you mean closer to Alma? How about the lake itself and upriver to the dam? Just a wintering area?

Good fishing exists, but so do good numbers of good anglers. It's probably one of the most heavily pressured flathead fisheries in MN. Seems like in heading out to the Minnesota with Dennis, that it was more consistent. Maybe that's just because I was fishing with Dennis!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
