Well, I'm all set to hit the river saturday morning, went and got ten gallons of premium in the boat, 3 more scoops of fatties to go along with the misc. redtails/ shinners, got 2 bobber rods loaded, 2 bottom bouncer rods loaded, 2 jig rods and a couple two riggen rods ready the go, batteries have been checked, GPS batteries are on the charger, I'm pumped up! The bridge area around Prescott is always a good choice this time of the year, as it also is in the spring, years past its been very good but its kind of loud around there, The river just has so many other less pressured spots that are peaceful, I will most likely be heading for them. Looks like it will be me and my dog out on saturday if he's up for it! grin.gif

Walli, perhaps we'll see you down there tomorrow. I was planning on staying away from Prescott as I'm sure there'll be more boats there than the rest of the river combined. I have 5 or 6 spots between Prescott and the Kinni that I plan to hit and if you're around I'll say hey. I'll be in a Tracker Tundra with a couple of Mercs on the back. I don't see too many of those down there so I should be easy to spot.

What types of depths/locations are you fishing with bobber rigs this time of year? Never have done much bobber fishing for river walleyes but always wanted to give it a try.

do any of the launches in that area have a dock in still? i usually put in at hastings but if there is no dock there i don't like my boat rubbing the rip rap.

My partner and I fished the Vermillion yesterday. We caught about 25 wallege, 1 sauger. Biggest fish were a 22.75, 19.25 & 18.75. A few boats were in the area catching crappies in the timber. Pitched jigs with fatty's and twister tails to shore. Did lose a couple nice fish, too.

I did talk with a gentleman at the landing when we left who had fished Prescot. He said he caught two fish all day. Hope this helps.

Alright here's the scoop on bobber fishing the river at this time of year, I've found that ice jiggen spoons under a bobber work real well tipped with a fatty also vertical jigging them works well also, bringing ice jigging techquies to the river, strange but works!

USE2BWALLEYEFANATIC Hey I'm planning on fishing between Prescott and the Kinni also. 98% of the time I fish below the kinni somewhere, I only made it above the kinni 4 times this year and there isn't anything up beyond that point that I can't find below it. I've focused below the Kinni as long as I've been fishing the river so I know that 6 miles pretty good but I got alot to learn, the AQUA VA is a great tool and it will be in the boat in the morning, see you on the water! grin.gif

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
