Miss. River for opener?

Recommended Posts

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

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
