Anyone Shore Fishing yet?

Recommended Posts

Lunker

The walleyes are starting to run up under the dams here on the WI river, wondering if anyone has been hitting up Pool 2 from shore yet? Specifically the creek outlet, under the dam, hidden falls area? I'll be back in a few days and wouldn't mind checking it out.

Was out for a few hours on the St. Paul side this morning throwin' white twisters and some ringworms, landed one carp and had something else on that broke off about a minute into the fight. There was about 7-8 trailers parked at the ramp but only saw one boat by the dam. Might have to get the boat running and head back there this weekend

Thanks for the boat report. If the warm keeps up for the next week, my ice fishing gear maybe put away and then the boat comes out.

I went down to Hidden Falls after work on Wednesday just to see what was going on... one boat trailer, guy said they "caught a few"

Tossed out a couple crappie minnows I had from the last time I went ice fishing, nothing but snags. River is low right now, boat access up there would probably be key to getting fish, as there aren't many low-current or breakline areas accessible from shore right there

was down at hidden falls for about 1.5 hours. shore fished from the boat launch up to the dam pretty much. nothing. one guy near me caught a small catfish & someone on the mpls side caught a decent crappie. i'm thinking about heading to nicollet island tomorrow.

On thursday I went down to the Minnehaha creek side. The creek is running muddy and very low. The water level in the river is low too in that area. You can almost walk right up to the drop off for the main channel. I was just scouting and left my gear in my truck, but I'll be back to there sometime next week.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
