Minnesota River Fishing Report


Recommended Posts

Pretty slow yesterday. We fished for White bass and channels with no luck. Dtro did hook up with a northern and thasts it for the evening.

Warmer water please.

Im probably going on a catfish quest tonight if the weather holds out. I'll try to get some pics if I find a camera man.

If you roll with 8-10 foot rods to the sky while on plane, watch yourself going upstream from Belle Plaine. There is a a nice cable that came off one of the big power lines that is now hanging from bank to bank. I called Scott county last night so hopefully its taken care of before too many guys have to cross under it heading into the sun.

I got the big skunkaroo last night....

I was just there as a hood ornament anyway. Thanks for having me Ed.

I'll be the beer man in your boat anytime.

We've got 55 degrees out here right now, and small channels have been willing to bite. Cut creek chub has been the bait of choice 2nite. Lost one that felt pretty good about 20 minutes after we got started today. eek

I caught some nice white bass in the Carver/Chaska area this last weekend. I didn't catch many, but they were very good size...biggest one 16" and maybe pushing two pounds...

Another on the water report-

Similar results as yesterday so far, just small channels. The top couple were at the 23" & 24" mark. Creek chub has out produced shad again. Gonna stick it out another hour or two and see what happens. Hopefully an entry worthy fish will show up here soon.

Creek chubs were the ticket tonight too. One small flatty boated with a couple of other nice runs that we couldn't got hooked up.

Yes, Dtro hooked up with a flattie, the first of the season. Seemed the cut bait got hit mich more than my live creek chub.

WWG and I are waiting for the larger ones to feed so we were skunked last evening.

Got out last night @ Black Dog....1st time out on the river this year and despite not boating anything it was a great evening. Fished from 6-10:30. Wind started to calm down around 8:15. Water temps. floated between 55-57 degrees in the main channel. A good amount of debris in the water but nothing real big. We had a few runs but couldn't connect. This was my first trip with the Surge Trophy and boy that rod is awesome! The tip is nice and sensitive with a stocky backbone...love the large diameter cork handle as well. I hope to make it out a few more times this week/weekend to get the skunk out of the boat. Nice work btw on the first flat dtro!

Yeah, that's precisely why I have been skunked the last 4 outings I've been on...no sense in catching anything under 50 lbs, I figure wink

One can make excuses, and I like that one, but the simple fact is its early in the season. Doesn't take much head scratching to figure out why a flathead won't bite right now.

I've got my eye on my Lilacs. Got 4 of them in the yard, one should be ready to bloom soon!

It may be early but they are starting to feed. One never knows when the big one will hit.

One needs to be out for that opportunity.

Its always nice to just get out and a fish is the bonus.

      I went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...
