Things started off fast, boated a 17" eye within a couple minutes and then it got painfully slow for about a hour or so then picked up a few shorties, just couldn't get a decent one, so off to bottom bouncing and bang theres one 16 1/4" and bang theres another 17 1/2" then nothing and so I pulled up one rod and put down some lead core and a tiger pattern shad rap and bang a 21 1/2 " which I released but not before I took a photo, check out its weird eye? PICT0148.jpg picked up one more shorty and called it a day, I'll be back on the water in the morning. Finished the day with three decent ones and a nice releaser plus caught a couple nice smallies and of course sheep! cool.gif

What a beatiful morning to be on the river and the fish were biting so so, nice to see Sandmannd and Big Wade out there, had a goood time talking with you guys, so did that spot pan out for you? I picked up one more straight out from the buffs before I split, not as nice as the other three but still a 17", heck if I wouldn't of tossed the two legal but smaller ones I'd of had my limit! cool.gif

Walli,

It was nice visiting with you again. That spot didn't pan out for us, lots of bites but couldn't pinpoint the hook-set, except for Sandman's lawn chair he got on a spinner and then his blue gill. Have to only guess it wasn't our day, but then again it was sure nice to get out on the river again, talking to you was proof there are still fish there, so I just have to get out and try again. Hope to see you out there again soon.

Hey Walli,

Nice seeing you again. Thanks for the pointers and letting us fish along side you. Nice to get tips from a river pro like you. I really liked when you showed us your catch and all I could hold up was my zebra muscle covered lawn chair. Oh yea Wade, you forgot about the 10 lb log I hooked into, that was a nice bite. I think my favorite was yelling for the net only to have the lawn chair come up. It sure did fight though. We both saw a flash of a fish on that one and then it dove down so my guess is it hooked me into the chair since I don't think they usually bite on crawlers.

Ah dang, that just reminded me of the one time I thought I hooked fish and when I finally brought it out, it was a nother fishing rod...Weird thing was it was swimming and fighting and then nothing, but dead weight after I was yelling for the net. call it a magic trick, but I never yell for the net anymore. I just keep the net close by.

We were out Sunday morning as well. Boated 4 walleyes and 1 sauger, all running shad raps on lead core. Nothing on live bait though, the bait bite for me has come to a screeching halt, seems they are on more of a plug bite as of late. At least in the spots I fished Friday and Sunday...Might get out Tuesday evening for a while.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
