3/29 Pool 2 Report

We unloaded at Lilydale ramp last night and fished from 4-7:15. A lightning show and some rain took us off the water a bit earlier than we wanted. We caught 6-8 eyes with the biggest being 15" We also boated 1 channel that went something like 6-7lbs.

Jig and minnow took most of our fish with only 1 coming on a ringworm plastic. Most of our fish were caught in 15-20FOW and during the daylight. We did see one fish that was about 3lbs, but that was the biggest we saw caught.

Might give it a go again on Sunday if the weather permits.

Thanks for the postings Tyler. I was down checking out the Lilydale ramp today and there were sure a lot of trees going by. The Army Corps web site has it up 2.5 ft in the last 3 days. The water I saw was very stained. Anyone care to share successful stratedies? I did see 2 boats come fishless! I'll be there this week for the first time. Same old story, trying to avoid the crowds.

See you on the River...

Nice to meet you tonight LuckBites,

We never even caught a single fish tonight. The water was dirty and fast. The rain was cold. We fished from 4:30-7:30. Snagged 1 small channed cat and that was it. Tough night

Tyler, I believe I met you down at the ramp while you were meeting up with the crew. We had about the same results that night. 5 fish on jig and minnow and 2 on ringies the biggest was about 20" Also caught a quillback. First one I have ever caught so that was the best part!

Went down friday with the girlfriend and we olny caught 3 eyes and missed one nicer one at the boat. The river was up about 2 feet then and it has to be up about 5 feet now from last wendsday so that area may not be the best choice for a bit. Anyhow good to hear you guys got into a few also!

Yes, nice to meet you as well. I saw you guys out there and I did see you guys boating a good number of fish. I'm sure I saw you hit 3-4 yourself and then the older gentleman got ahold of a decent looking fish. I'd like to get back out there on Thursday, but the weather is looking crappy. Keep in touch ratherbefishn

Let us know how ya do. I will be south in the backwaters the next week or so but will be back that way once the water comes back down a bit. Olny a couple weeks away from LOW !

FYI - The log jam @ Lilydale ramp is on it's way to New Orleans. Hopefully it crest this weekend. With all these lake open now it shouldn't be a problem finding alternative until the river is back down.

Good luck if you get out. The MN is expected to crest Sun...

      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. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
