Miss. River for opener?

4 posts in this topic

I was thinking about the late spring and the conditions on the lakes compared to the Mississippi river for example. I would expect that the muskies might be more active in the river. Is anyone else thinking about fishing a river over a lake for opener?

I guess for me I don't have a lot of options in the St Cloud area so I was maybe thinking about hitting the river instead. It sounds like around the Blanchard Dam there are some in there. Anyway, I wanted to throw it out there and see what you guys think.

Good luck to all on opener.

The river in my area has just gone down the past few days to about normal depth. Lots of curent still move thru so im not sure if it is worth it yet. Ill be on a lake for opener. Heard thru the grape vine the the bass men have been seeing and even hooking up with a few. 3 Days and counting. Thinking about heading out after I get off work Friday night and fishing till day break. Gots to work a 2 pm on Saturday and im not going to be able to sleep anyways so I mite as well go fishing. HAHAHAHAHA

Yeah if the river is high maybe I might opt out of fishing it. I definitely want to fish it more this summer though. Wow that is dedication! Hopefully you stocked up on your energy drinks.

Up here, the river is almost impossible to fish. The water is moving fast and the clarity is little to nothing. The rain to come this week is going to make the river a torrent. In my opinion, its not even worth the time

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
