JT, I live on the big Miss just north of monticello.There are a few nice accesses around the area. The best one though that offers lots of parking, a park for playing or shore fishing and a real nice boat landing is located on the south end of the town right next to the hospital and nursing home. Just find the hospital and take the first little side road just north of it off of main street,you cant miss it. It is pretty shallow and rocky around this stretch of the river so be carefull and make sure youre boat can handle these conditions. Or there is pretty good fishing right from shore.Also make sure to check with the D.N.R about the special regulations on the fishing, If I remember right I believe any smallmouth caught between 16 to 20 inches must be immedietly released. Personally I hope you release them all like I do. The smallmouth fishing can be absolutely unbelievable!! My sons and I have caught many 18 to 20 inch fish and a few that have gone over 20 inches ,one that was actually 22---wow what a monster!! they are all still in there for somebody else to catch too! The special regs along with the tough conditions ( big rocks everywhere ) seem to really help keep the quality of fish up, and the guy who wants to cruise around in his big glass boat out! with all the new people that move out to this area daily and the increased amount of fishing pressure I just hope it stays that way!! Good Luck, Pete

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
