Just got home from the river. Spent about 4 hours in a honey hole trying to catch some cats, but nothing. Decided to switch things up and I am glad I did. Got a couple of walleyes,a small snot rocket (northern and on almost every cast I would latch into a nice smallie. Perch color spinner bait was the ticket! Also seen the biggest redhorse I have ever seen swim next to the boat. Hope you guys have some luck this weekend. I am out!

I was out last night, fighting the boat traffic. Struggled to catch fish while bouncing over waves. Caught quite a few smallies and a bunch of sheephead with a jig and a crawler. First time all year I havent caught at least one walleye or sauger though...

Got down to the river in the pouring rain this morning what a light show, the two guys from church were real troopers go out in that, to me its just another day. Fishing was good except the fish that were bitting were the wrong kind, I hate to say it but I have my first blank in the walleye dept this year frown.gif, sure had one heck of a streak going though. One of the guys with me caught two nice walleyes 16 1/4 and 17, we all caught bass, sunfish, sheephead, rock bass and channel cats, still had a great time, both fish were caught on crawlers 22' Looking forward to fishing in the morning. cool.gif

Walli! IS HUMAN! I was starting to think he was some sort of super-human fishing machine, but he does have off days like the rest of us. Please don't take that the wrong way Walli1, I still look up to your experience and river knowledege. Heck, my "off-days" sometimes last from July to Sept.!

I'll be down there tomorrow am., I'm gonna head out of the public launch in Hastings instead of the Bluffs. That should save me the run around due to construction on 95.Se ya on the water.

Just getting the final things ready to go out in the morning, my son is going out at 3:00 with me, should be on the water by 3:45 at the latest, just love that early morning stuff! yeah today was a sad day, first time this year not catching a walleye, it happens and its hard to swallow but there's always tomorrow, at least I did have walleyes in the box today, so far this year I've had eyes in the boat every time out thats pretty nice cool.gif see you on the water!!

I don't know Walli, I think it still might count when you took two rookies out and someone in your boat boated some eye's. I think it's harder to get rookies to get them than to bring them up yourself. Good luck in the morning.

Thanks Sandmannd! Well this morning my son and I made a memory that will last a life time and he'll have a story of the big fish to tell and show the photo for life! Check this big buffalo head out my 15 year old son got in on 4 pound test fireline,it took over a hour to get it in the boat, sure put a bend in the limit creek rod, rod looks cool bent like that, it was 33" long had a grirth of 24" and weighed a shade over 27 pounds. I'm holding the fish for my son because he didn't want to lift it up. PICT0202.jpg What a fish!! O yeah I kept two nice eyes also, sure had a blast and its something my son and I will always share! cool.gifcool.gif

always!! One great thing about the river is that you can target one species and end up catching many different species. Once my son gets old enough, he'll be coming along with me.

      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?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
