Fished with my eight year old daughter and a friend at the dam in Crookston. Fished the left side of the dam as Wiskers had a guided trip on the right. Fished 5-8 feet of water and had a great time. Boated over 40 fish in 2 1/2 hours. Like Wiskers said earlier, lots of small ones but enough decent sized fish to bring home for the pan. As always fished chicken liver but we are always looking for eating sized fish. Caught three that went 4 pounds.

Wiskers, that was me on the other side of the dam. Very nice River Pro. Hope the clients appreciated the day.

Oh was that you in that small boat across from us.??? Cool.. I seen you boating fish... We were watching that small girl in the boat pulling like there was no tomarrow on a few LOL...

It was real good fishing.. if you dont mind 2-4#ers.. It kept us busy..Was realy hoping for a fatty or two though..

Lan.....

there is a landing out on the bypass but you have to have a small boat to get up there over the shallow water and rock dams or just carry it over the dike. Timmer has a 14' with a 15 hp on it and made it just fine for now until the water drops even more..

Rusty: You will have have to speak to your partner and Rod and his lady friend. I THINK they had fun except for a few kitties doing damage to their equipment. But that can be expected when U play with the big boys. I am sure they won't rub it it toooooo much.

I fished below the dam yesterday with my nephew and sister for a while. We had a hoot! Lots of goldeyes, catfish, smallies, walleye, and rock bass-- perfect for my nephew. He caught his first smallmouth and thought it was pretty cool. Used crawlwers and a jig or slip rig and had plenty of action. My sister was sure to inform us that she managed to catch the most fish. And Cody, my nephew, was also sure to point out that he caught the biggest. They both were sure to mention that I caught the least. Of course, I pointed out that I guided them to all of the fish for the day! grin.gif

Rusty, I had my eyes open for a riverpro while we were there, but you were no where to be seen. I woulda flagged you down so I could finally meet you if I'd seen you. It'll have to be next time.

Scoot... I was out all day sunday. I was up in the dam till about 11:00, then went down river and spend the rest of the day till 7:30 way down river hunting for Eyes.

Had Clients out till 1:00 then it was the family till the weather started to look bad. Too bad I missed ya.. Next time.

We found an awesome sandbar that had only about 3 inches of water over it for about 200 feet.. We set up and took some vids of the RP going over it like it wasn't even there with the kids standing in it up to their ankles. No matter how many times I do that I am still just amaized it can do that... It's just something you have to see for your self I guess...

Canuck...

He called me yesterday.. had to rub it in a bit.. LOL... He is now heading out to get some heavy rods and reels.. and some good TuffLine for the Reels.. He was saying they only got about 40 fish..Guess I spoiled him on opener.. LOL... Of course they had a great time anyhow.. What other time could you have up there.. Jamie and I got signed up for that Selkirk tourney also...

Wiskers, I figured you were somewhere on the water. I'd have liked to meet you. Oh well, it'll happen soon enough I'm sure.

I bet I know the exact sandbar you're talking about. I remember on year, the river was so low that it was only about six feet wide in that section- the rest was just sand. Not too far from there there's a deep hole, right?

Did you find any fish?

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.

      I will also add to my above post that the discoveries of this disease in new areas like crow wing co. should not become a panic in that area and the whacking of deer in these areas is truly nonsense. What if one deer survives the mass killing that happens to be infected ,, well then what ? In a herd that annually is around one million in our state , having a handful of sick deer from CWD is not the end to our herd .How many deer actually do test positive from these stupid massive killings when all the bullets are done flying ?? Sooner or later with the now implementation of CWD testing , ,it’s gonna pop up  in new areas either naturally or by the existence of poor oversight and improper management of deer farms . So if this time it’s a deer in Crow Wing Co . So the DNR says let’s whack them all in that area , how bout when one happens to test positive next month in Lake of the woods co  , well let’s whack them all there too , and when one happens to test positive in Itasca or Hubbard co , well let’s whack them also . Before long we won’t have any deer left in our state with this stupid thinking , it won’t be the he disease itself that eliminated our deer herd , it’s the DNR that just eliminated our herd .. killing as many deer in a positive test area does nothing to help the problem..  on another note our DNR management of deer is terrible and many times quotas for upcoming seasons are determined by auto  insurance companies who pressure the state that these areas are carrying to many deer and the herd needs to be thinner in these areas , and thus lowering  the payouts to insured motorists who happen to hit a deer and make a claim. So then the state ups the permits and harvest in these areas to thin out the deer , ahhhh money the root of all evil. Nothing to do with a Biological stance whatsoever. And when these numbers don’t fall within quotas by permits to harvest these extra deer , well then find a deer in those areas that has CWD and kill them all , then the state says “there now we lowered those numbers “ and the insurance companies say thanks . Nooooooo dat don’t happen , does it ??? Hmmmmm !!
