Coon rapids dam report

Recommended Posts

Rivernut

Fished for the first time above the dam. Launched the boat around 8 and fished til 1. Good time, catching smallies, walleyes, and a good bunch of decent sized crappies. Jig/fathead combo was the ticket. Got no response to redtails, which are like candy anywhere else on the river that I have fished. Beautiful weather and all in all a great day to be out.

Any size to the walleyes? Great report, fall fishing on the river is where it is at!

The 'eye's were samall 9-11". The crappies were very nice sized as were some of the smallies. I was in a different section of the river yesterday, and the cats and smallies cooperated very nicely. You are right, the river is where it is at from now until iceup. Good fishing.

glad to hear good fishing. Plan to make at least one more trip up there before ice up. I have been having good fishing lower down in the river too.

What is the best way to fish rivers? trolling? Snagging rocks much of a problem?

This is my first post on the site.. Great site!

I've been fishing a spot at the CR dam the last couple of days and the walleyes have been biting. Took me a couple hours to find the set up, but finally started hitting them. Fat heads on a floating rig and shad Rap casting. Another gentleman came down to the spot and had 2 on within 10 minutes. I left after that. I will be going back this week a couple times.

Headed back down to my spot tonight. COLD!!! Noone fishing on the (Contact Us Please) tonight, usually 5-10 people. I was out for about an hour and the bite was on tonight!! Using the fathead/floating rig mix, had many many bites, only able to get 1-15" eye' in though. Probably make it down tomorrow again. Wisconsin fishing this weekend @ yellow lake.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
