Fast Current??

Recommended Posts

jclymer

Fished the River on Sunday night after I put the boat away for the weekend. Fished my normal spots with little success. Caught 3 smallmouths 12"-15" and one 17" walleye. I moved from my "hotspots" and tried to hit some calm water behind some rocks. On each sides of the rocks the current was actually like rapids. It was EXTREMELY fast. I hooked a fish in the fast current, then another fish, then another and this went on until it got dark out. Caught about 10 more smallmouths between 12"-18" in current that was so fast that I could barely keep up with the lure when I was retrieving and 12" fish felt like 25 pound fish! Mu conclusion was that we just had a bunch of thunder storms pass through the area and the fish moved from the calmer, deeper holes I generally catch them inand moved to the fast rapids current because they felt safer???? I'll be back to my spot of Wednesday so I'll report where the fish have moved too now!

Nope, I am still a little father north. I have put alot of time and effort into finding a certain section of the river in the St. Cloud area that holds a TON of fish and lots of big ones. So far I never see anyone fishing it, so I really don't speak of specific location. Also you need waders to get to these location, no shore fishing.
I have been at 10th street **** a coupl;e times this year just for a few quick carp, have seen quit a few smallies caught!

      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.
