7-15 to 17-2005 report


Recommended Posts

Well All I can say is... it's about freakin' time the water came down. Fishing is definetely picking up and getting into typical summer patterns. I went out early and late on Friday and early on saturday and Sunday With BLB. Good numbers of fish and average size was respectable (15") We managed a couple of really nice ones. My son with a nice 19" b190smb716053rr.jpg

and myself with a 24....... laugh.gif Ok actually just under 20, but a nice fish anyway.


Either way the fishing is picking up and as usual it is a blast. I will admit towrds mid day the bite was a bit tougher though. Still when you can have a 25 fish day, it beats most lakes IMO. grin.gif

And just think SH.

That fish you lost at the boat this morning was probably the infamous 22 incher that would have gotten the RiverPro free replica.... shocked.gif

That did suck. I gotta admit. I give you a lot of credit.

I woulda made a nun blush with my profanity after losing that one.

All you said was, "I wanted that fish."

Honestly, I'd rather you get those lost fish outta your system now, versus in the Sartell tourney.

Lets go win that one man!!!

Thanks again for a great day dood. laugh.gif

HAHA LOL! the juju with RR. That was rough... just glad it wasn't me! Good luck guys (any everyone else fishing the sartell tourney). I'm sure it will start to get quiet sometime soon from those fishing the tourney. "um yeah, I fished the river this weekend and we only caught 3 dinks and 4 catfish... all on flying lures" LOL

Sure blame it all on me..... sounds likely.... LOL J/K by the way me and HT did just fine in his boat...... makes you wonder LOL That was still a great day on the river I learned a new area, the weather was beautiful and at least we could both laugh at our miserable day of not catching fish! We have to make up for it sometime in that shiny purty new boat of yours though.... we'll try Elk River/Otsego area next time!

Hey Smallie,

You're gonna have to get smaller fish or bigger kids! grin.gif

What section of the river were you on. We put in at Montecello and caught mostly pocket bass. And not alot of those either. confused.gif

Thanks for the info

Well, I was out between Monti and Sartell. But the area you are fishing has nice fish. I guess it didn't hurt to be out early (Like o'dark30) and in the evening. Also, it really seems to be important to watch flow or discharges from St. Cloud Dam. When flows drop abruptly the fishing stays good..... but the catching digresses. crazy.gifcrazy.gif When flows rise or increase the catching usually improves as well. Hope this helps. grin.gif

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
