Better look at maps again...most of it was closed to hunting this summer. (Powerplant to Elk River) They did it under the radar made a bunch of people mad.

I used to hunt by snuffys landing in Becker behind the the powerplant then one day their was a observation platform there and got bummed out and kind of slacked off the river. man I miss that spot the hunting was awsome and never failed to see birds.

Jimbo80-did they just close it for the early season(overwater)? You can still hunt the river in that stretch during regular duck season, correct?

all hunting....more houses = more noise complaints. Also, people started hunting really close to town, so that don't help

not in that area but closer to the cities but still outside the no water zone...got chased off the river by an irritated land owner. She owned the property on the other side of the road. I wasn't breaking any rules just didn't want to get in to it. She kept saying I was on her property, I'm pretty sure she doesn't own the stream bed which is obviously exposed due to the drought. Now, am I off base here? First of all I take issue with what she was claiming to own...I'v hunted this spot for the last few years now and have seen others hunt it as well. Doesnt the tresspass law read...up to the high water mark...? Anyways...I left to avoid further confrontation. Not quite on topic...but thought you other river hunters could share some insight.

the high water mark is not a reliable rule, so I am told...

I always keep my feet wet while hunting the river or fishing the river and have always avoided prosecution.

we had a conversation about this awhile back on another board and others tended to agree.

I'm with sartell angler on this some of the property owners think that they own property all the way to the other side of the river at least thats the impression I get from some of the people when I last hunted the river.

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
