What's going on guys? No fishing reports? No new discussion topics? Is everyone so busy fishing that they don't have time to post? Tyler and Dan must have drowned or something.

But seriously...has anyone been out fishing lately? I would like to get out after some smallies but am waiting for the rivers to go down a bit. How has the bite been on the local reservoirs????

There were lots of 8 fish limits at the UPLR event on Chester last night. Only a handful of nice crappies showed up, but most of the gills weighted were nice ones. Bass were easy to catch too.

Gills could be found both near shore and out in the depths. We caught a bunch of small crappies (and gills) right near the boat ramp about 2-4' down.

Both live bait and plastics took fish with live bait getting the most attention.

I hope to have another typical "pictured" report for you boys and girls tomorrow, and Thurs, and Fri, and Sat, and Sun.

PS.. I was out of town for 4-5 days over this past weekend.

Full day of White Water Rafting (class 3 & 4 rapids)

CO Rockies game

6-Flags

Good Times!!!

Still around Nate! Took a whole week off last week for fishing exclusivley in the area. Didn't go up north this spring. Fished the Root near Preston, water was very dirty. Also fished the Trempleau dam with Crappieguy473. We had a blast. He caught 7 different species that morning. Fished from 6-noon and caught plenty saugers and sheepies. Walleye, bass, whities, catfish and gar. What a great time!

I also fished the Zumbro River (in a few different spots) , Cold Spring Brook, and Lake Pepin and Lake Zumbro. All in all a very good week. Never got a skunk except that trip to Preston. blush.gif

Thats funny Nate. I was thinking the same thing. These guys in the Rochester forum are always fishing and posting info. I actually think fishing is Tyler's full-time job. Keep the great reports and info coming. smile.gif

Sorry i as well have been just doing too much fishing to post. with a few tourneys and taking some other people fishing it has been nuts. you know you have been on the water so much that your tackle box starts to look like a hook and lure mobile.

Well I am glad to hear you guys are all still alive and kicking. I was starting to get worried. Sounds like the fish have been cooperating for the most part. Hopefully I can get some fishing in tomorrow night after work.

Later

Nate

Tonight was nothing to write home about, and certainly nothing to post about unless you want to hear about the 1 and only dink sheepie we caught.

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Mayflies were just getting started on the west end of the lake last weekend.

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.

      There is a tank of leeches over by their water tank. They're stopping by later so they can go fishing. Gotta love our language. HA!

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!
