Fishing the Anoka stretch

Recommended Posts

Lunker

We will be fishing the anoka area a couple times in the next month, and was curious to how the fishing is around there. I am unfamiliar to that stretch of waters and was wondering if anyone wanted to lend me some pointers. #1 Target is bass, but wouldnt mind fishing for some pike, walleye, cats or whatever else is worth going for on this stretch. dreaj04@aol.com if you want to contact me there. Thanks a bunch.

I've been finding cat's everywhere there's a break or depresion of any kind. They've taken over the river!! Lately most have been small, a pound to two. Found a few walleye's last night among them but the walleye's were in the rocks. Northerns, near rocks and deeper water. smallies, every where there's rocks. Good luck.

The Metro LETS had a tourney on this stretch today, with some crappy weather some nice fish were still brought in. This was my first time out on this stretch, and between my brother and I we caught around 15-20 smallies ranging from 8-17". Most were small though, and we just managed to get our six fish limit at around 9 pounds. Caught our fish in the a.m. off docks with senkos, and p.m. up the rum with rebel craw cranks. Also caught one itty pike on the craw. Some nice fish weighed in by other teams, couple eyes, pike, and cats, but mostly smallies.

So who won the LETS event? Wasn't that the last one of the year... I guess I should just check on that forum/thread.

Bummer about the weather, but smallies sure do make for a great day!

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
