A friend of mine and myself went out to Chester to check out the Sunnies Saturday late afternoon. Water is still up about 2 1/2' - 3'. Water clarity is terrible, muddy green. Caught one 11" Crappie and that was it. We had tons on the finder, but no takers. Like to learn more about Cat fishin', but my fishin' experience is very limited and without knowing anybody in the area that has done much fishin' period, I'm outa luck.

First let me say welcome to FM! I was in you exact shoes about a year ago. Don't beat yourself up too bad, this site is full of helpful people. Just don't be afraid to ask questions. Also another great way to meet some of these people is to participate in some of the different events, in fact I am sure that you have seen that we have an Ultimate Panfish League-Rochester event coming up on the 10th out at chester woods, feel free to come on down and fish! Also for catfish information you should check out the catfish forum.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'll keep an eye out for the Catfish forum. Hopefully I'll be able to make the fishing at Chester on the 10th. Thanks!

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
