I caught a 32" channel last year spring. Weight?? I didn't know they got that big. I heard ones that are bigger per my buddy. Cut sucker, shiner, shrimp. Oh one time these 12yrs kids were schooling me using leeches and actually broke his rod on a big ol kitty. He was so ticked. I did get a leech and caught a lil one and that was it. Just wasn't my day I guess. Another time my other buddy Bill caught a 8lber on a crankbait. You just never know - but it's a nice lil chocolate river

Catching a lot of catfish, in early june up to June 10, then all catfish biting stopped and the carp and bullhead are the more dominant species now. I have caught 5, 4+ Pounders, all using nightcrawlers, that has been my best bait. Throw your bait in the middle of the river in the current and wait for a hard tug. Lester Prairie. Largest Cat at 28", 8 LBS- 100_3520.jpg

Just recently I have caught some nice fish, the catfish are still there but not in the open they are now preferring the cover. There is a fallen tree that is holding some cats but there are lots of snags. Right off the bridge on the concrete I have caught a Walleye, and a friend has caught a decent catfish, that is where I got my 8 LB fish. The Walleye was 16", and 1.5 LBS. Jigging a Nightcrawler right off the side. I'll post a picture soon.

Vexilar, What town is that near, and what time of the summer were the fish caught. It looks very wide.

Ever get any smallies? I know they aren't many in there. I did get one small smallie a few years ago. Hook and worm going for cats. I've also heard rumors of 10lb walleyes to.

I've fished the Dam in Hutch a couple times this year, and caught a Estimated 2 LB Smallmouth, surprising but before I bent down to pull it out of the water the hook came out. Also where I fish I have never heard of a Smallmouth in my part of the crow. In the fall and spring in the area I fish I've heard of anything from 13"-23" long for Walleyes, so about 1-4 LBS. I've only caught one this year, it was 16", but last fall I caught a total of 4, but all in the 13-14" area.

The river has it all, I've gotten smallies(4lbs biggest, walleyes (2-27inches in one day), northerns, even a muskie. The big cats or carp can wreck your real. I use almost exclusively a floating orange rapala.

Where I fish cats are your best bet of a gamefish, bullhead and carp can ruin my fun, unless im going for carp. A walleye is a bonus for me.

We've fished the Crow alot over the years. We used to get a ton of smallies in the river below Burnings Mill, walleye, cats, pike, you name it.

We also got a 9 3/4 pound walleye out of the Crow river near Rockford....got 2 fish that day, about a 10" walleye, (me)and my brother caught the hog. When I came across the river to see what he had, I thought he had a big carp on the stringer.

We have several fishing holes on the crow and we get walleyes now and then, although nothing as big as "The Hog" as we usually refer to it. Lots of little stuff, with a good sized eater thrown in once in awhile.

Every now and then we will get a smallie, but we haven't gotten anything big.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
    • ANYFISH2
      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
