small mouths from harriet island?

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, wondering if anybody has ever caught any small mouths down on Harriet Island. I have gone down there a few times but never had any luck. I have never really fished the river much so I'm pretty clueless. I tried tossing a heavy jig in there but the current still seemed to over power it. I thought i may have heard some talk catching them from rasberry(navy) island? Any info will help. Thanks.

instead try going upstream, like near lilydale park and upstream to the ford dam. cast some crankbaits and cover some ground, you'll get some

I don't know if you are in a boat or not but I like throwing flukes in the river from shore, they get caught up less than jigs, you can work them slow or fast, top water or closer to the bottom. Also don't be afraid to cast into brush and tree limbs. Don't rule current out altogether but look for slack water and eddys, smallmouth tend to relate to the current seams more than directly in current in my experience.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
