Pool 2 report.......11-11-06

Recommended Posts

Nice sunny day, but don't be fooled it was cold out there today. South wind at about 15 MPH + 30 degrees = not nice. We worked wingdams pretty hard, a couple sheepies. Worked the shoreline rip-rap pretty hard, with some really nice white bass coming to the boat. Two nice smallies and one 21 inch walleye were also on the rip-rap. All in all, a pretty slow day. The only thing I can figure out is that the flow is down so much, the eyes are scattered out all over. With so little flow, there really isn't much for current breaks, and very "very" little action on the wingdams. The river is full of shad, so the feed is plentiful, and available.Things don't look good for any more water in the near future, so I would guess the fishing will stay pretty much "as is".

At least you caught some fish Joe. We blanked for the evening. We had two very light hits and no hook ups. I might have to bring some minnows and vertical jig the edges of the wintering holes and ends of wing dams next time. The wind really was not fun. I had trouble staying anchored with my 30lb river anchor at times, especially with little current to push the boat down river against the wind.

That wind sucked down there on satuday!!!! It said 5-10 mph and that could have been doubled!!! It was a little slow for us as well. Monica pulled one nice one and all I could get were them 21-22s of the wingdams. I moved up to 1/4 and even 5/16ths for Monica just to help in the wind and made a difference but you really need to be lighter for better #'s of fish out there.

We had about the same results on Saturday. Chilly, smaller eyes and another enjoyable day on pool 2.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
