BlueSharp,<P>Rick, Dennis and myself will be up 10/14 and 10/15 fishing the same area. We will be at Clementson Resort. We won't be hard to find. If you see a goofy looking guy at the wheel of a RiverPro with two goofier guys hanging on for dear life all the while mainting huge smiles, you'll know that you found us. grin.gif<P>------------------<BR>Paul<BR>ProStaff Director<BR><A HREF="http://fishingminnesota.com" TARGET=_blank>FishingMinnesota</A><BR><A HREF="http://Iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><P> PWaldowski@comcast.net<BR><A HREF="http://www.drakemotel.com" TARGET=_blank>Drake Motel</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/index.aspx" TARGET=_blank>Marcum</A><BR><A HREF="http://otteroutdoors.com" TARGET=_blank>Otter Outdoors</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A><BR><A HREF="http://minnesota-lake-maps.com/" TARGET=_blank>Lakemaster Lake Maps</A><p>[This message has been edited by Paul Waldowski (edited 09-06-2004).]

Kaz<P>Whats the river level and current like like? Is the current what you would call normal or is it still down? How about the water level in the lake, last year at this time it was very low. I'll be up later in Oct and just starting to think about the trip any info you could give me would be great. I really enjoy reading your knowledge of the lake. Do you ever go across the street to Ballards for a cold one?<BR>Lund 18

Bluesharp;<BR> Just FYI, the last couple mornings I've noticed large groups of crow ducks(cormmies)on the river. The only reason I can think of for them being there this time of year is minnows(shiners). If the shiners are there the walleyes can't be far behind. This is just my theory and not anything I have confirmed, but is sure does get a fall walleye guy salivating. As far as river level goes I would say it is about normal for this time of year, decidedly higher than last year. Current is moderate, should be able maintain contact with bottom with 3/8 or 1/2 oz. jigs.<BR> Enjoy your fall fishing maybe see you on the water. Ol'Sneller

Lund: I agree with WCT, that things are pretty much back to normal. Two weeks ago I had a minimun of 5 feet in 4 mile bay. It will be good if the Shiners are coming into the river already. If the "Sky Carp" are in the river, then the Shiners have started too. Ballards, yes I do visit there, but most of the time I "water" at Riverbend or Adrian's. I did have dinner at Ballards and my neighbor, Lars Johnson, is there every morning for coffee. It sounds like you must be in the area too. I'm at 3343 Burr Oak, just down the street from Ballards. If you see a white Denali in the drive, stop in and introduce youself.... Sounds like the river may turn on early this year. If the shiners come in, they didn't seem to last year, then the Ice fishing should be good in December too. I monitor channel 82, so give me a call if your on the water this fall.... kaz

Kaz<BR>Thanks for the update. I don't live to close I'm over 400 miles from the ramp at Wheelers Point but I've been coming up 2 to 4 times a year for the past 10 years. I love the fall and March opening on the river. I'll be up in Oct if I see the Denali I'll stop in and say hi. I usually walk every morning around 5:30am but I won't stop in then. <BR>Lund 18

Riverfishermen...my wife, chocolate lab pup, and I are spending the season (June - Nov) on the Rainy River next to the Silver Creek junction. Walleye fishing and teaching some basic retrieving/pointing skills. I fish most every day..mostly on LOTW downrigging near Long Point/Gull Rock..but have spent many days walleye, pike, and smallmouth fishing on the river. The shiners are definitely here as are the cormarants..lots of both. More walleyes moving in every day, it seems. The creek out front is a good bet where it joins the Rainy as well as many other holes within a mile either up or down river. Our dock and kitchen are always open for a visit about hunting/fishing and a hot cup..on the Rainy River side at Silver Creek..single story brown cottage with big yard. Roger, Phyl, Dakota. Good fishing and tight lines.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
