Mississippi river Boating

Recommended Posts

jigginjim

I have lived in Buffalo 2+ years how. Have been wanting to fish the Mississpi r. around monticello from a boat.

I would to find someone who fishes the river from a boat. Trying to learn it without trashing boat or motor.

Any help will be much appreciated. smile.gif

Hi Jim,

There are a couple of us here in Buffalo that make that run in a flat bottom with a prop. e-mail me at bassfishingnerd at yahoo DOT (Contact US Regarding This Word)

How safe it is is relative to the river depth. When it's high, it's not bad, but when it gets down to late summer, you need to watch out, since it's hard to get around anywhere then.

Sluggomaster, your e-mail looks like its missing a part. you can e-mail me at jigginjim@aol.com I also live in buffalo only a block and half from the fire station. Maybe we could hit the river some i'll bring all the minnows we need, if you want to use jig-minnow for walleyes.

thanks

Hi Jim,

I'm not much for chasing the "mutant perch" but this weekend is looking pretty ugly anyway. I chase smallies on the river.

Sluggomaster, Smallies are a lot of fun to catch. I chase the mutant perch just for eating. Smallies are play fish, catch, play, photo the biggies, and release them to be caught another day.

JigginJim,

I found a good Mutant population by accident yesterday, They dont like minnows though... you need a RATTLE TRAP, ORANGE. Those mutants are messin up my Smallie hole, Sluggomaster and I can help you catch them. I'm hoping for warm weather through December so you can thin the Mutant herd. I must warn you though, once you fish the river there is no going back. You may be Assimulated...

Thanks Dan, That sounds good, I would like to help thin the mutants so we can have more room for smallies. Can i reach this area from shore or with waders? My ranger can't float in the shallows of the river.

I dont think I would try wading that part of the river right now. There are some deep holes. You are more that welcome to jump in the boat and do some fishing. I'm going to try and make a few more trips to the Monti section this year. I can't go this weekend because I'm going to get me a deer, but I hope to wet a line the following weekend.

Dan, Good luck on your deer hunt. I decided not to go this year. I'm going fishing with my son. Last season i bagged my first buck, a dandy 10pt. now waiting for taxidermist to finish it. If you have an open seat let me know.

well guys how the river bite going? I didn't go deer hunting this year, still paying for last years hunt. I see the river is almost down to normal. I would like to catch some smallies for a warmer-upper. May be some glow in the dark perch (walleyes) for a couple dinners. If the bite is real good, I can being my propane stove, and cook some a lunch break. grin.gif I was on pulaski today temp was 45. Buffalo was 38. Only got 1 bass and 5 small pike. released all.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
