Two weeks my man. Give it two more weeks. Those fish that spawn on the points and feeder creek deltas in the lake will be putting the feed bag on shortly.

Thanks Tom.

It's one of my Dads favorite spots and since he's somewhat computer illiterate,I told him I'd put the question out.I knew I could count on you.

A neighbor went down to Lake City this morning to shorefish. The word is all small so far, but then its still early.

Years ago I fished just north of lake city. I believe it was one or two turns before you get into the city. I fished a little backwater area where the road crosses the backwater channel. There was alittle bridge there.

Say tons of northerns and several massive crappies. Just wondering when is the best time to hit that area again.

Hopefully someone knows where I am talking about. I might come down on Saturday to give it a shot. What is the regulations on what you can keep in that backwater area? Can you keep anything but panfish?

With the water levels decent now the backwaters should be firing up pretty quick. Along with the toothies and the crappies/sunfish, you can keep the waldos and sauger you catch year round, but I'm not certain on the bass as I do not fish them much.

Are there any good spots to try other than the spot I mentioned in my previous post? Do you know where i am talking about in that post? Any new reports?

This is my second time down to fish the backwater first being this winter down by wabasha, didn't catch much that time but am looking to improve on my luck.

I have not been to the backwaters of late, but some other sources with good repute are saying they are quiet in the Wabasha area. They should be heating up pretty quick.

Was on the the lake looking for smallies the other day and it was pretty slow. Caught 4 and that was it. Water temps were around 60 in the marinas.

Fished the Redwing dam area Saturday afternoon. The dam was open so the current was pretty wild. Boat control was out of the question. Probably should have spent more time away from there looking for current breaks in calmer waters. Oh, and it was windy. Really windy..

On the way, Pepin looked like a mad sea.

      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.
