Jim W- I'd like to thank you for all of the smallie info you have shared in the past and present. Thanks to you, I went fishing last friday at a small stream near my house. I caught 5 smallies, including my first (and hopefully not last) 18.5 incher!! I caught him on the 3" plastic weapon!! I measured and released!! That was exciting, I don't know if I'll ever be able to go back to trout fishing!! However, I need to do some exploring, because I know there are better waters out there!!! Thanks again!!!

SEwalleye,

Your quite welcome and thank you for the kind words! Give yourself some credit for trying something new, exploring and landing a piggy smally!!!!! That's what fishing is all about, I think!?

I've been blessed with the opportunity to spend many a day wading, observing, learning and catching! You should probably thank my loving wife, who continues to allow me to "get my fix", filling my prescription of fishing medication!!

Now with this wonderful dry period, get on them smallmouth! They are hungry and willing to choose you as their next partner in a wonderful fishing dance! Let us know how you do in the future!! Let them smallies bend your rod!!!!! Jim W

SEwalleye, I too have learned a lot from the various 'regulars' on this board and I am very greatful. One of my favorite thread came out this past winter and I recommend that you review it as you look for new haunts to fish smallies. Using the SEARCH function on the ROCHESTER/SE MN board enter the words Old Spots/New Spots . This is a thread worth printing and reading over and over. Good luck on your search. If you wish to learn more about smallie fishing in our area, I would also recommend that you check out the South East MN Smallmouth Alliance (SEMSA). We meet monthly and have several projects and objectives that we are working towards, all of which are aimed at improving the smallmouth fishing in our area.

Fish On!

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
