Friday Night on the River


Recommended Posts

Just wondering who all is going to be out and about Friday night? I've got a couple places in mind to try with all this water in the river. I'm guessing there will be a couple of boats full of people out there so who's all going to be on the river.

I'll be out there this afternoon and evening. Fishing the new ulm area. Two boats and 5 people tonight. I'll be out checking the area by myself this after noon.

Yeah, Flashman.....I should have sent 'em out for some bait. I don't think I'll be out tonight in the boat. But I know where Dennis got his monster flat this afternoon. I might trade you that info for a pair of carhart's.

But ya can't tell Dennis I told ya. Remember where PJ wanted to fish last week and I told him there wasn't any water there.........

Jim,

I think there is plenty of water that most of us still can't get too.....

I am pretty sure I didn't give away any secrets there. PJ and Flashman have both been seen fishing that spot in the past already.

I keep all the REAL secrets under lock and key.

Don't catch MY fish; catch YOUR fish.

Just got off the phone with Dennis....

He said he just got a 45 pound flat on a Ring'n Grub and light line.

I'll let him tell the story when he gets off the river. He was on his way home to get his camera....

With WWG around why would anyone hire a guide?It does't take him more than an hour to give up the location of a good spot! grin.gif
Of course I am joking.I don't mind letting freinds know the exact spots where I am getting fish.
I am curious where you guys are getting fish too.A good angler never stops learning.

Dennis,

we tried your most well known spot Friday night, with now luck at all, not even one bite. We fished the top until 12:30 or so then moved down stream and started fishing snags...Perch Jerker had one in the boat before I could get my bully out of the live well. We ended up with a 25, 15, 12, and a couple under 10lbs. plus 2 shovelnose sturgeon. I found a colvert yesterday that is just black with Bullies if anybody needs some.

I was only able to fish for about 30 minutes Friday night in New Ulm. Found some good looking spots down stream a couple miles from the landing. Tossed out some cutbait for a few minutes and got a couple channels in the 5-8 range. Tossed some twister tails behind an island just downstream from the cottonwood and got a couple hits but never got a hookset.

Found two really good looking areas that I didn't have time to fish, but I will definitely be back down there once the river drops a few feet.

      Work has pretty much kept me from fishing since late May😕 Did have the chance to hit the water for a few hours yesterday. I opted to hit the river for some smallie action with my limited time. The Sippi didn't disappoint, the brown bass had the feed bag on big time!. I hooked over 30 fish in 3 hrs, most being 15-17inchers with a few bigger and a few smaller mixed in.   Weightless stick baits rigged on a 1/0  is all I needed to throw.

      Hi all - new to the forum.  I live in NE Wyoming and am an avid fly fisherman.  While I love fishing for trout out west, warm water species on the fly is a blast.   Me and a buddy are headed out this coming weekend for a BWCA trip.  We have a couple of days on the front end of the trip to fish.  I'm planning on towing my drift boat from NE Wyoming and have spot picked out in North Dakota to float for smallies on the fly.  I'm looking at trying to get an additional float in somewhat near Ely before our entry into the Boundary Waters.  It's a 16' drift boat and doesn't really draft much.  I'm planning on having a small trolling motor just in case I need some additional power.  Looking mainly to target smallmouth and pike.   I've looked at a few areas to float, but wanted some advice.  I have a few options that I think meet what I'm looking for:   1) St. Louis River near Hoyt Lakes.  Looked like there are couple of access points to launch and take out below Hwy 110 2) Cloquet River - Hwy 7 to the mouth. 3) Bigfork River - From Ivan Crawford to Reedy Flats   Can anyone provide any advice these or provide any other recommendations?   Thanks in advance!

      I have been doing pretty good bass fishing locally.  A lot of numbers, but lacking in really big quality fish that I have caught the last two seasons.  Biggest I could catch this season so far is 18 inches.

      Welcome to the forum. Downriggers work best for suspended fish in deep water. Most river's are shallow and rocky. If you want to fish the bottom in a river a bottom bouncer might be best to not lose a lot of expensive gear. Imo. Good luck. 
    • DeEon
      I have a Cannon Optima and Iam anxious to try downriggers for walleye.  There is a bottom tracking feature on Optima.  I think most walleyes are close to bottom so I think it is a good tactic.  I am, however, nervous about using Fishhawk XD4 with on river.  A screwup would really be expensive!

      i'm not real involved yet. my first meeting. long story but my parents belonged to it years ago. after the cabin lake had the 2 consecutive years of severe winterkill i dogged the heck out of the fisheries people in grand rapids.🤭 i found out through the watershed assoc they talked them into restocking sunfish and bass into the lake. they did that this past june. so i figured for the 15 bucks join!!!!!   my next battle is with the township......🤣 trying to get them to grade part of our road going into the cabin!!!!! i already sent the letter but havent heard from them yet. since i've retired from being a union thug.......i gotta pick a few battles to keep my skills sharp!!!!!!!!🤪🤭👍
    • Kettle
      That's awesome that you are involved in that! I hope you have a good trip up!
    • smurfy
      I'm heading up sometime the last week in Aug . I joined the Jessie lake watershed assoc and they have a meeting on the 27 I want to attend.

      Definitely in the dog days of summer. Catching a few walleye here and there on the river. Hasn't been too hot which makes me hopeful for an early fall fishing season. I'll post more when the fish turn their feed bags on and the leaves start falling. Until then I'll just work more and get winter gear ready
