Well not a lot of fish but nice. Tried to get my son on a nice picture fish but I had the luck today. 19 1/2 inch smally and a 21 inch eye both on a Mepps. Cruddy day so we came home early.

All nice fish. What stretch of the river were you on? I was between the coon rapids dam and river park and only saw one other boat for the day.

I like to fish the stretch from the beaver islands all the way up to Rivers Edge north of Sartell. I hope to explore more towards Clearwater this summer.

wow those are nice fish! So do you fish on the top side of the dam? Where do you put your boat in? My friend and I fish the dam from shore and we are thinking of putting in my boat just wondering the best place to put it in.

My son got his biggest smally today. A nice 18 incher. BIG smile!! The access spots are below the dam, up by Cathedral high there is one, Wilson Park, north of Sauk Rapids, and north of the papermill. TONS of rock between Wilson park and the Sartell dam. If you go there be very carefull or it's prop time.

Well, we got out a couple of times and picked up some nice fish. But when it gets right down to it.... it doesn't matter how many I catch its this guy that is important to me. My son said after he caught this 18 incher "Well that's my first bigger one for the season" Anyway, between breaks in the rain he picked this one up on a senko rigged wacky style. We'll see if this works... Hmmm....still trying.... again??

Too much fun. Nice fish eyeguys son!! We obviously were both out there today. Amazing fishery isn't it... All 60 miles of it. We took a few more snap shots today... just had to post a few. We ended up with well over 40 fish in the boat between the three of us, what a great way to spend the day together.

      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. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      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.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
