Are you camping? Just curious as I have never kayaked. This is a big piece of water, IMO. When I was there it was a beautiful crankbait bite for eyes and smallies. Lots of protected bays, current, and "big" water. Northerns are good to great. Lots of people catch muskies there. There are also lakers. Big, big variety of water. For me, it was a confusing system. Of course the last time I was there (7 years ago), I didn't have a GPS with a Navionics chip. That would have simplified the area alot. We stayed at Perch Bay Resort. The guys I went with go there every year and swear that it just gets better.

Probably one of the best fisheries (I have ever been to) for pre-dark fishing from the docks for walleyes. Every cast.

As the poster mentioned above this system, while it is a river, is more of a series of connected lakes.

As far as the fishing, I didn't get a chance to fish for much besdies Muskies, but there sure were a lot of bass and pike. Have heard good things about the walleye fishing but I have also heard it is not as good as it once was due to lackluster regs..Dont quote me on that.

I will say that THE biggest fish I have ever seen or caught was on this sytem, and for the life of me I can't understand while I haven't been back to fish there yet.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
