I just may have a few hours free this weekend to test your hand warmers on the rod trick. I bought a few to try it since I HATE fishing with gloves! I drive a 14 foot duck pattern grumman with a Yamaha 30horse. Good luck to all, sundays shaping up to be shorts weather, 46 degrees! grin.gif(well not really shorts per say)

15'-38 up and down steep drops mark lots of fish just weren't active, no I never went past the kinni only went as far as the bluffs park, lots of fish in that area just couldn't get them to bite! Tried 4 different color jigs, several different gulp colors and fatheads on lindys the only walleye came on a gulp minnow and white jig

Dumb question, is the bluffs frozen over? I may go out tommmorow, but would be upset if i get there and I have to break ice.

I would guess that there would be some ice in the launch area. I wouldn't pick that launch with a glass boat. Hopefully somebody with first hand info can chime in...

The bluffs launch is fine its warm enough yet so there's no much icing, helpful tip bring a bucket of sand just encase you need to though in down! Big Jeff and I will be out in the morning plan on fishing from 7-3, see you on the water!

walli1, looks like the buck I've got in my back yard!!! I've got a nice 10 pointer that's sporting 10 inch G2's and 8 inch G3's. There's also 2 trash rack 6 pointers as well walking around. If only. Sandmannd and I were getting ready to go hunting during opening weekend and I was putting my stuff outside, when I'm letting the dog out to do her thing and she freezes up. I've got my gun cased in my hand, and go to see why she froze up, only to see the 10 pointer standing at 20 yards giving me a broadside shot. I was not the happiest person at that time.......

2007 will no doubt go down as one of the top years on the river for the amount of eyes I boated, 2003 for the most C&R by far. This year caught quite a bunch of C&R but only a handful over 24" with the largest being 28 1/2", next year is going to be great all those 12-14" will be legals, can't wait but hey I'm going out in the morning, see you on the water!

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
