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!

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️
