Which River?

4 posts in this topic

Do you guys prefer to fish? The Minnesota, or the Mississippi? I was out on the Minnesota last night, and we didn't see a fish or get a run. Should I just try putting in more time in those same 5-10 spots (between Shakopee/Savage and a little ways below the Cedar bridge), or should I try to start learning the Sippi'? We're mainly fishing for flatties, but probably hit the channels too.

I like the Snake, though I guess I'm biased since I own a place on it. I've never caught a flathead on it, and I've never caught maore than 3 channels in one day though I'm an inexperienced cat fisherman. I did get two 31"ers last year, and I caught a 27" Saturday afternoon on a leech and bobber with 6lb test in what I thought would be a good bass spot.

I have only fished for catfish on the Minnesota and have no complaints with it. I know people who do fish the Mississippi but my choice is the Minnesota.

As far as the bite of late, the last two nights we have caught and released 17 flatheads from 10-52#'s and a total of approx 350#'s. It looks that they may be just starting to spawn with some fish being marked up.

If you take the time to learn the Minnesota for flatheads and channels, it will treat you right. Some do very well on the sippi also.

I fish both, and I would have to say that I would choose the Minnesota most days, as long as the water is high enough!

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
