Anyone else?

Sorry to hear about any wet basements.i went thru that

in spring.For the finished ones i found out that if you really

get after drying it out with shop vac,box fans,& heat + 2 dehumidifiers,

you still have to rip up the carpet & toss the pad.it'll start to mold in

less than a week.I was able to save the carpet tho.Good luck home-owners.

Wow, I saw a picture of Morehouse on the weather channel.

I heard Le Sueur got 15-16 inches. Crocker's Creek, Whitewater Creek (Waterville), and the Cannon were FLOWING! The Minnesota will go higher than it did this spring.

Yes, not good at all. I am lucky to be on high ground, and do feel for those that are not. A very good friend of mine has been working 48 hours straight down in owatonna.

I have 2 kids here from a family in o-town that their house was flooded. They are getting a good nights sleep.

A big Shout out to my wife and her company for helping supply the OPD and OFD with food today.

We had in the neighborhood of 12". The sump pump did it's job and I left for work Thursday feeling pretty confident we would be fine but 1/2 hour after I got to work my wife called and said the sewer was backing up through a shower and the floor drains. We got all of the carpet ripped out and got fans and dehumidifiers going now and hopefully we can get it put back together so the daughter can have her room back.

Ended up just over the 7" mark in Dundas. Never seen the Cannon River flow like this, my Mom & Dad always told me about the 1965 flood, just heard this is almost like it.

jefferson didn't have any pontoons floating away. you're exaggerating

ok let me clarify, there was 3 pontoons floatin around or beached already on lil jeff as of thursday night. Big Jeff thursday night had 2 bigger aluminum fishing boats off of thier lifts.(not pontoons)(sorry for the confusion jigmaster) andd my buddy's buddy had his pontoon float away on tetonka.

Is that BETTER?

I fished there on monday and didn't see any pontoons floating around the lake. Beached is a different story. Jefferson chain came up about a foot. It'll be good for the lake in the long run. No state of emergency there. The Cannon and Tetonka of course are a different ball game.

For this time of year its to high. We will have alot of shore line that will get pushed up this winter with high water and the ice pushing the banks. The water hasn't been this high since the spring of 2003 and the summer of 1997

With the high water, I hope boats would please slow down. If not to help the shoreline, so they can see the logs, trees, landscape timbers and all the other junk thats floating around out there. I have seen one boat hit a log that it put a good size hole in the boat, that ended their day fast.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
