Check out this for a tournament! I wonder how long before we can do this on the stretch of Zumbro below the dam.

I think I heard last year someone caught or netted one of these on the south end of lake pepin.

Get your hockey helmet and baseball bat ready!

Interestingly the last time we were out on the river we found another kind of fish that likes to get airborn! Shad, and we did manage to net a couple as they tried to boggie by us. We found that thes shad were more sensitive to high intensity light than sound like the asian carp.

Here's a video from a year ago saying the carp had already made it to MN...

I remember about 3 summers ago I was fishing shallow water on the south end of Pepin. Came through a school of fish and about 5-10 jumped out of the water. It was too dark out to see them, but I did think of Asian carp, apparently my suspicians were right. If what they say about them is true, the river is gonna be in real trouble. crazy.gif

Thank you for the link, I will definately be trying to snag one of these the next time I see them. I am about 95% sure that is what we saw that night on the Miss. They were way to big to be anything else.

hey Chris, good to hear from you. I haven't been out since June. All the busy summer activities for the kids and my baseball season have kept me busy and sore all summer. I finally realized that I am getting too old for baseball, so I plan to get a boat before next summer and get back to fishing more. I do plan to hit the Iowa streams once the kids go back to school and I get my Friday's back.

You'll have to shoot me an e-mail sometime we'll have to re-live that trip down to the Rush? Will probably have to wait till the end of Sept though.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
