Navigational Update - Montissippi down to Hospital

Recommended Posts

Guest

A friend of mine, and myself, were out in his new RiverPro on Sunday, fishing just south of your location.The smallies were a bit sluggish, but we managed a couple nice ones on buzzers. We traversed the river just fine in that boat, no problems at all.That has to be the funnest boat for the river I have ever had the pleasure to fish in.Water levels seem normal- I have seen the river a lot lower than it is right now.

While I was at the Montissippi Park pier I saw a few folks launch, go downriver for 30 or 45 minutes, and come back - looking p.o.ed or nervous or both. Three small prop boats and 2 jet-skis all came back saying that the areas up and down river from the hwy.25 bridge was unpassable (worst report) or very tricky (best report). There's a park by the hospital in monticello that a person could launch at to go upriver and possibly make it to the bridge. People who went upriver from the park had no complaints upon returning, about navigation, that is.

We towed a small prop back up river to 'sippi park, Sat AM. Seems the rocks were hungry. The river seems to drop Friday PM and rises Mon AM.

Rman, You must have been with Dave, in his LoPro?

Kevin, yep, I was with Dave for a couple of hours. He told me about someone he knew of fishing the tourney, but didn't mention your name. What a small world it is.I think the hull of Dave's boat is a steel blue color.That boat sure is a blast to fish out of.You will be seeing me fishing with Dave for sure in the near future. Aquaman, we didn't go that far up the river where you were at. I should of said we were downriver from you,rather than south( not too many fish in the parking lot of the high school) grin.gif. I stopped by Montisippi Park today, and the fishing pier is under water up by the shore. It looked like the water is rising from all the rain up north.

      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.

      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.

      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.
