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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
