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

I got the same bait bucket

Not even mine. My buddy had some 17 year old kids go catch us a bunch of bullies and they came and dropped them off at the river. Bait delivery service wink I should tell them they could make money delivering bullies! They want me to use all these up so they can go catch more.

Its funny they love to catch them and sit with us on the river but they never river fish. Wierdo's!

I just have a small 1 gallon Frabil.

Fishing for me has been picking up near Jordan. No big fish but at least a fish! Caught this little girl tonight on a bullie just a bit west of the Jordan Access...

Fished Shakopee last night from 6-11:30. Absolutely nothing. I was the only boat using the launch last night which I thought was pretty odd. 3 weeks ago you would have to get there by 6:30, otherwise finding a parking spot was tough. Are things winding down already!? Still seeing surface temps at 73-75. I don't wanna hang up the cat gear just yet.

I was just told about a spot off the shakopee launch that someone who is not on the website explained to me at the bait shop here in shakopee today, he also showed me pictures of the fish they caught 2 nights ago, one was 56lbs.. only problem is I dont have a boat to get there. AH if only! So to answer the question, no theyre still biting dont put your gear away yet

We were about 2 miles downstream from the 101/Shakopee landing last night from 6-12. Brought in 3, these were the bigger two. Fishing anything from deep 30 ft holes to 5 ft along the bank. The big flat came at about 6:30.

Looks like a great spot to fish Great structure once you wade through the snags.... We will have to put that one on the books for League night this friday, She'll probably get hammered by some lurkers prior to that, but a experienced cat guy could pull some hogs........... She will probably be milked dry in the next week or two..

Might want to shop your pics and not give out specifics about locations moving forward if you have hopes hitting a spot again with out it getting raped by everyone else.... If your into sharing I know that there are lots out there that have been really struggling to land a flat and will go to great lengths to do so...

Nice fish Mates!

Thanks for sharing!

Dude, it's fishing, not gold panning! My wife is a professional photographer and I'm sure she could shop our fishing pics onto the top of the Statue of Liberty if we wanted, but it's just not worth that much work! We talked for a while with wastewaterguru and it sounds like there are a LOT of undisturbed places where the big ones are likely to be hiding. There are lots of places that will be unproductive for several trips, then all of a sudden they're filled with fish. Just how fishing goes...

AAAAnyway, best of luck with the league. Have fun, and thanks!!

Yeah those are some nice fish and congrats on catching them, but LFC is probably right. I know it sounds a little silly, but trust me, be careful with your pics--especially on FM...

A couple of years ago I found a really good unknown fishing spot and took some pics of some giant panfish and posted them on the site. Well I went back a week later and I kid you not, there were 25 dudes fishing on my spot. That winter the small lake got completely fished out. Learned my lesson though.

      There are guys on Facebook Market place selling buckets of Smelt right now.  One said "Fresh from Duluth"

      I was able to hit the chain on Saturday and cruised around a bit to see if I could find what the walleye were doing. Appears they should be spawning and did find what I think were a couple females just based on the location I found them.    50° on the river and saw as low as 47° on the main lake.

      I was out 4 different mornings.  Very difficult hunt.  I never saw a Tom.  Usually when we go out we can get the Toms to gobble to at least let us know where they are roosting but this year they wouldn't gobble to a call at all.  Most wouldn't gobble until almost shooting hour and if they did gobble it was on there own.  I didn't really want to hunt season A but I had to because of work.  I think the cold weather must of had something to do with it.

      And just a few days later, I got my first 10inch bluegill of the season.  Same body of water Royce got his from, but clearly a different shaped hen bluegill. As always, trophy size fish get released😁   VID_20210418_110303001~2.mp4

      First outing this spring turned out fairly successful.  Not consistent action yet but enough to stay interested.  Nothing bigger than 12 inches though.  All were released fully alive to complete the reproductive process.

      Last summer while doing a surgery recovery, i got into watch the canal harbor cams of Duluth. Not sure what is going on but at night there has been several people dropping what could be nets or a trap over the side of the wall.  Would like to know if these guys are catching smelt or bait?

      I probably won’t turkey hunt this spring - working way too much!  This morning before heading out I had multiple birds gobbling from the area I got mine last year. Probably would’ve been an easy score.
