5/12 report

Hit the water at roughly 6:00 a.m. Fished one of my good early season spots, bite was on right away but shut down about 8:00, We were wishing we got out there earlier. Managed 4 walleye/sauger and a few accidental smallies. And a couple of lost fish. One nice eye at 24" and the others around 16". Fished south of the Kinni a ways on a steep sand break, leeches on a 12" snell did the damage.

There were ALOT of boats heading up to the Kinni narrows and points north. About 8:00 alot of those boats were moving around and back south towards P city.

Hoping to jump out there again during the week. Maybe Thursday?

We hit the river around 8:15 and we were one of those boats that headed north of the Kinni. Trolled cranks up through the Kinni with no success and then headed up to Hudson. Tried crawlers, spinners, cranks and jigs and the only things we could muster were some sheepies and a big ol silver. Gave up there and headed down to a rock pile that produced nothing trolling cranks. One more stop south of Afton where we finally got to see what a walleye looks like. We ended up catching three in about 5 minutes in an area the size of the boat (one was 19" and the other two were short). By this time I figured catching a pile of fish was not in the cards so it was as good of a time as any to head home. Still a great day to be on the river. Ran into Riverdancer and it sounds like they hadn't done too poorly that morning.

I headed to the franconia access in hopes of catching some pike in the backwaters...couple more weeks with no rain and the backwaters are gonna be completely high and dry. I would say the river was about 2 ft low from normal levels, so it'll be really tough going in the summer. Action was really slow, between 3 people we caught 5 fish total...2 pike, 2 smallies, 1 white bass.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
