We are glad to help. Keep posting and asking questions.

If your'e thinking about trolling cranks this Fall for Eyes, check on the Mille lacs fishing report. Probably starting in the next week or so,(and carrying on into Nov). you will see a ton of questions/tips that will work on any lake. It is worth your time to check this out grin

Basically you are trolling / casting shallow water 2-12 ft or so. Using husky jerk-baits 10's 12's, maybe 14's. Some popular colors, clown, firetiger , perch, purple perch, tenn. shad,rainbow .

Also you will probably be using Shad Raps. Sizes 5 & 7's.

There is a book called Precision Trolling that tells you how much line to let out for a particular crank bait. It takes alot of the guesswork out.

That was very short , and you will see in the next month or so how many anglers do this. It's a blast. grin

I do the same for spring walleyes. Some days its almost to easy catching them on raps.

Could you any of you give me some ideas on where to find when the current speeds up on a river?

or some good places to look?

It sound's to me like you just asked how to read moving water. This is an important skill to cultivate but one that's a little difficult to explain to someone that hasn't learned it yet. I'll try to do my best. The next time you are out on a river, spend your time scanning the surface of the water carefully. You will probably notice certain area's where the smooth surface of the water is interupted. That mean's that just above the swirl or ripple's that you see, there is a rock or boulder or an ol;d tree limb on the bottom that is causing the disruption. That's a good place to start looking for some fish that will probably be holding nearby. The fish are not going to be holding out in the stiffer part of the current. They will always be looking for some slack water to hold in, which enable's them to fart out and snatch any juicy looking tidbit's floating by in the current. Fish would have to expend too much energy feeding if they spent all their time in the fast current so that's why they always look for some slack water. A certain amount of slack water will always be found behind any obstruction on the bottom or laying in the water. A good example would be a tree that had blown down and was laying in the water. These are a dead giveaway and usually easy to find. Another way you can read the water is to study the direction's a river flow's. For example, if you are drifting downstream and the river curve's to the left, be sure to check the outside part of the curve because that's where the deeper part of the water will probably be. Always check the outside part of any curve in the river. Well I hope I don't have you completely befuddled YFG. If you have any more question's, don't be afraid to ask! That's what Auld Phart's like me are here for, eh? laugh Good luck and good fishing! grin 1DIRTBALL wink

Verry well said 1DIRTBALL. The things a person forgets when you dont use them often. Its awsome to have people like the FMrs, as you are, to refresh our memories and to teach the new stuff to us also

    • 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.
