Creeks

I saw these in a different forum and thought it would be cool to do a local one. And i have always wondered what is in some of these creeks and little rivers that are all over the place. I am suprised what i have seen in the creeks around here. There is a creek in town that i have seen carp, bullhead, sunfish, crappie, perch, and 2 very nice size walleyes i would guess in the 17-20 inch range, and in st.james creek i have seen carp bullhead sunfish perch and bass. Never fished those creeks so don't know if they bite but i have seen them in there. Also Lots of shiners in both. What have you guys all seen or caught in the area creeks and rivers?

My creek and river experience is minimal at best. Having said that, Lime creek at the outlet of Lime lake is awesome for fishing. I'm often amazed that the county park isn't used much. It's a very nice park, with a boat landing, and great shore fishing.

I've caught (I'm not kidding) 8,9,10,16,and 19 pound pike on the outlet of the Lime lake dam at the creek. If you like to bowfish for carp this is definately a good spot, also. I've never caught walleye, but I've caught perch and crappies in this creek, also.

Where the Des Moines river flows below cty 6 (river road) is another nice spot for perch, crappies, and an occasional walleye.

Three years ago on the Three-mile Creek by Ghent,MN I was fishing with one of my buddies on opener weekend and we each caught a 6-lb. northern and I was lucky enough to reel in a 24.5inch walleye! Second biggest walleye in my life and I still cannot believe it.

I used to go and fish a creek that had a bunch of walleyes and pike in it early in the year. They were some easy pickins as well!

I would imagine in the early spring (ice out) that any lake with crappies, 'gills, or perch that would maybe swim up or down the creeks could potentially become great spots to try and fish! I know the creek on the south end of Lake Hanska gets hit quite a bit!

I have had some of my best walleye fishing outings on the Des Moines River on both open water and ice fishing. Fun times!

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
