Planning trip this weekend.

4 posts in this topic

I am planning on going fishing this weekend with my Pa, if the weather holds . I am thinking of going down to the Miss or some place on the root. Is it to early to catch suckers? I was thinking of Eagle Bluff, is it open this time of year? Any good access piont s on the root. I know it's trout opener this weekend so it will be busy eek.Just looking for a place in SE MN for some generally good action.

Been catching a few suckers lately. Most of you sucker holes should hold a few fish right now.

Thanks Tyler. I think we will either head down to lanesboro and travel 16 east to (hopefully) find a spot, or we will just head to the Alma float. I'm getting anxious for some sucker action.

Well me and my dad got out today fishing. We were on the Root from 8-1 grin. We started at the canoe landing just outside Chatfield. Unfortunately, the water was really low there. Next we headed to Rushford and found a canoe entrance next to a small 3ft dam. The river was really wide there, and it was hard to cast to the current seems. I think if I had some sandals and shorts I could have waded to a nice spot. However I had jeans and street shoes crazy. After about a 1-1 1/2 hours I had only caught 1 Shorthead. So, we decided to head to Eagle Cliff Campground. We spent the rest of the day there. I caught quite a few fish but my dad caught only two. I did get some new life listers. I caught a silver Redhorse, 2 Northern hog-suckers, and perhaps a golden. Those hog-suckers are some fascinating critters; with the black ring around their lip the look like they're wearing lipstick. I was surprised at how few people there where at EC. We did see a lot of cars on the side of the roads and plenty of fisherman on the Root. All in all a great day ;), I just wish my dad had caught more fish and I wish we had a camera frown.
