Are you coming back this weekend? I'll be doing some fishing on Saturday for sure. The river is way too high right now, so I'll prbly be hitting up the old reliable crappie spots.

Hey, just wondering if anyone else has done good on the Le Sueur in the past. All I've ever caught are Channel cats under 10 lbs. and small walleyes. Lots of carp and sheephead as well mad.gif.

I have lived on Main St in St. Clair with the river in my backyard for 4 years. I've never wet a line, but I have waded with my bow and shoot a few carp.

Three and a half years ago my wife and I took my canoe from the backyard all the way out to the park north of town. That river never runs straight! There was a huge log jam that looked like a good spot to fish behind, but the couple portages we had to make to get around log jams were difficult due to the steep banks and I haven't ventured down the river since.

A few years before that a couple guys I know found a bank with a sharp drop that supposedly produced several decent walleyes...no clue where it was though.

try wildwood park where the creek runs in to the river when the water goes down some for walleyes. Under alot of the bridges will produce channel cats.

Thanks for the info. I'll get out after the cats as soon as the water drops just a little further. If it only wouldn't rain for a few more days mad.gif...

It was a beutiful day yesterday. I tried by a few bridges and came home with a nice meal of Channel Cat. I caught quite a few between 2 and 4 pounds. I also caught a few other fish that were of other species as well wink.gif.

Glad to hear you found some cats.If you dont mind me asking what where you using? My dad and I are thinking about giving either the Le Sueur or the Big Cobb a try for some cats this week.

I'm just using a 2 foot snell with a medium sized red hook on the end of it and crawlers for bait. The river is still moving a little fast- an ounce doesn't really cut it, but its all I had and I still got into the bite. Good luck PDOGG!

I'm done with finals on the 11th, then I start turkey hunting on the 12th. When are you done? The bite on the river should be a lot better by the time you get back. We'll have to try it out one of those days. The water is still a little too high now.

I wish I could make it out there this weekend! I have to work at HMC and I can't get out of it. I have to pull a double shift on Saturday (8-10:30). Well it sounds like a good time. Next year I'll be sure to make it there if you do it again. Well, give me a call when you get back and we can do some serious fishing!

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
    • Bryan P
      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
