Just registered on to the bulletin board and found this forum. Good discussion on smalllies and walleyes on the river. A special thanks to Navigator and others who share fishing information and techniques.

I fish the stretch between Elk River and Monticello quite a bit. Spin, cast and fly fishing. What a wonderful resouce this upper Mississippi is!! And to think that many people in this country can only dream about fishing here. I feel very fortunate to live where I do and to enjoy the river.

Thanks again for all of your posts,guys!

( Did the weatherman just say something about below zero temeratuures? BRRRRRRRRRR! I'm ready for spring! )

It is a great stretch of water!
Sunday December 1st I finally broke past the 21 inch Smallie mark.
I have been like a excited little kid, just trying to explain to others how many years it has taken me to catch and release such a fish. The wife thinks Im nuts!
This Fall has been enjoyable and the quality of fish keep getting better year after year.

Its tough to think about ice fishing when you have a river on your brain.

Welcome to FM guys! I do most of my fishing on the Minnesota River SW of the cities but I have caught my fair share of "Mississippi River North" Smallmouth. It is without a doubt a premiere fishery up there...Hope to make it up again sometime next season.

WET NETS!

Welcome - both ya'll!!
I haven't taken a boat in the Miss yet, but I've had good fun shore-fishing at Orono. I live in that area, and I intend to fish it LOTS when I have a motor that will do the job. My boy is 4, and I want to raise him on The River.
I bet one of those powerful river Northerns are a blast on a flyrod!!

      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.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      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

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
