The morels are the first thing in the morning as I never forget about them. Then off to the river for a evening of fun.

Labor Day weekend with the kids on the Minnesota near Mankato. 

My first sturgeon and a couple of cats. Great day to be on the river. Still high but manageable however the landing was muddy 

Finally got out fishing, been a busy summer at work. Spent Saturday and today in the Mankato area. Amazing to show up at a boat ramp on Labor Day weekend and be the only person at the launch! Caught a

No doubt about it. I would much rather be on the water trying to get one to bite than sitting at home wondering what if.

There are Flats biting right now. That I know for sure.

Not only that, but there are some bruiser channels being caught in the meantime, and those are a blast! I just saw another picture of 15lber that was caught yesterday.

Yes the channels are on! In the past 4 days I've seen 3 over 12 lbs and a bunch between 8-10. The little ones are out there too, and even a few "rough fish" thrown in for fun.

I got a report...the boat landing at Henderson looked like a mini Mille Lacs Garrison boat landing tonight when I drove over bridge...wow. A lot of lines in the water out there tonight. Good luck.

We were targeting walleyes acouple nights ago with 7" bullheads around Henderson and Manchu got a nice 28 incher.

The river temps have climbed some this past week, and the flathead bite I would expect to turn on this week with the warmer weather. I was out last night and had several good runs, but I couldn't set the hook into any of them. Hopefully we get some rain here soon, or the river will be extremely low come July and August. It is almost at the mid summer stage right now. I have noticed places in the main channel around Henderson in the 3 foot range already. Not good when your boat is as big as mine.

Good luck to those who can make it out there!

It's dropping fast. It could be tough out there by june this year. Lots of trees starting to show themselves too as the water is dropping.

It was the middle of July last year before the water got as low as it is right now.

It's making it a little tough to key in on locations that are normally good this time of year.......just not enough water in some of those spots right now though.

It'll keep the Riff-Raff off the river.

Was that you with Riverhog last night that stopped and chatted with us just before dusk? With the glare, I couldn't tell.

No, Riverhog was out with one of our other buddies. I went out of the next launch downstream. They got a couple small channels and sheepshead. RH and I will be out over the next couple days and hopefully all weekend.

Overall it was slow for us last night and we couldn't stay out as long as we wanted. Did.you and Life get into any?

I didn't think that was you.

No fish to show for us. We fished till 11:00 and headed for home.

We could really use some big thunderstorms and heavy rain to slow the recession of the river level. Can't believe how low the river is for being May...just imagine what late summer will look like.

It really doesn't go a whole lot lower. It just keeps slowing down. We do need some rain.

I would expect to see it drop close to 4 more feet in the areas I usually fish. It will be a tough year even with jets if it doesn't rain.

All I can say to this talk about low water is PATIENCE people. We have had worse than this for water levels at this time of year and then the June monsoon season hits and everyone is hitting the flood panic button grin

We got another 1.5ft to low water levels... any lower and we will be in record territory in the lower MN. I know its a little different up stream.

OR just be glad you are able to go fishing. Being stuck at home right now is worse then being in jail for me. Getting my first DUI a few weeks back has been living he11. Makes it hard to go fishing when you can't drive anywhere. I has learned my lesson that's forsure.
