Minnesooootan looking for local advise

5 posts in this topic

Will be visiting the relatives in Plattsmouth for the 4th. I have never fished Nebraska and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to haul the 14' Lund down?

I usually target pan fish and northerns.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance !

Where is Plattsmouth located? I've heard of it but not sure where it's at. What lakes are around the area? I will do some research and see what I can come up with.

It looks like 30 or so miles south of Omaha. I just found out they are on Beaver lake which is a few miles south of Plattsmouth. Maybe it is worth a try.

I used to live at Beaver Lake and worked some at the marina. It is a private lake so the only boats allowed on the water must be registered to the property owner. That being said there are several access lots around the lake most with docks that lot owners and guests can fish at.

It is a good crappie lake, but in July they will probably be suspended in deeper water. Largemouth fishing is also pretty good. I have talked to some guys down there that would go out on the morning of the fourth and do good using topwaters which is always fun. If you find a good hole or brush pile you can get into some good catfish my PB down there was a 29lb flathead caught off a dock. And I've seen and heard of several in the 50 lb range caught in the evenings on access lots. There are walleye that you can catch when targeting other species, but I don't think the eye population is enough to get a good pattern going. They put a bunch of perch in a few years ago, and some are getting to be big enough to make a good meal out of, but for every one big perch you will probably get 10 that are under 8 inches.

The lake gets real busy on holiday weekends, so if you plan on fishing you may want to try early morning. The night of the fourth the lake looks like a war zone with all the fireworks and smoke rolling around the lake, and the lake turns into a chaotic boat parking lot.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
