Recommended Posts

sami0115

i hope to make it to Anoka area to fish bass this summer. what should i expect to encounter while on the river. i am used to river fishing in Winona, but we have wingdams (that are usually marked) and backwaters. i hear there really arent wingdams in the river near Anoka. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. smile.gif

From Coon Rapids to the 169 bridge, you will encounter houses, boats, and recreational traffic. Plenty of deep water with no worries. North of the 169 bridge is shallow and rocky. Go early and use buzzbaits for big smallies.

Hawg, use buzzbaits in the shallow water or the deeper water?

What else might work in that area?

I don't fish a lot of deep areas, but I have caught some on buzz baits in 8-10 feet. Most of the time we're in 1-3 feet of water.

Mr Clean, hows that left handed Shimano working out for you? Hope all is well.

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.

      Couple boat  trailers sitting on 22 access this afternoon. Everyones getting the itch 
    • smurfy
      Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!

      The cheeks could be good sushi if you like the texture. Too chewy for my taste. Now I just pop them in the frying pan for about 10 seconds for a tasty appetizer
