Hot bite

32 posts in this topic

If the bullhead bite from this morning for the whiskered bait is any indication of how the flathead bite will be, it should be showtime tonight.

I see a 40 in the boat tonight.

Don’t worry Tom, I can pretty much guarantee you that at one point during your outing tonight you will use the phrase “That was Easy”

Hopefully the St Peter launch is in good shape.

I have heard nothing but good things from the St Peter, Mankato area. Mankato may be the hotest bite going right now. Way to many from that area being fairly quiet.

Maybe a few big KOTC fish in the next 4 days from that stretch of the river.

The St.peter Launch is golden! One caution is if your going up stream there is a very large log stuck on the inside first corner that was 6in under the water a couple of days ago. It might be showing now but just a heads up. Also as far as you guys catching fish you might just want to try lake washington! I would bet you guys could catch something there maybe. grin

Good Luck Fellas! Dont Blow away and catch a monster!

I had 71 degrees on Sakatah lake today. It shot up 10 degrees in in about 72 hours. Remember Saturday night and parkas? Feels like months ago in just a couple days...

There is NO bite in shako!!! Other than my flattie from last night. Had 2 GOOD runs on bullies this afternoon and upgraded a channel cat laugh

Good luck getting out of the wind tonight, SSW@34 gusting to 50, she was swirling BAD this afternoon. Hard to find anything out of the wind.

Be CAREFUL too. The wind makes it hard to read the water. I lost a prop today frown Luckily it was just the prop, everything else is just fine. Gonna have to get another spare though. I would post pics, but it took the prop right off the motor.

Water was up to 64-66 degrees!!!!!

Was shore fishing last night downtown St. Paul with the kids and was able to pick up a couple great channels a 7 and an 11 lber. In the excitment and trying to keep the kids from getting all tangled up in the line, I forgot to take a picture of myself with the KOTC 2009 pic. The cut sucker bite was hot!

Sounds Good! Just need to warn you! You might get stressed driving that boat of yours in a section of river where you dont have a 6ft channel everywhere you go! whistle

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
