Open Seat Sunday November 3rd

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

If anyone is interested in hitting upper pool 4 of the Mississippi, I have an open seat as of this exact moment in time.

Granted, not sure if I want to go if it's in the "teens"!

I plan on putting in 4-5 hours.

You can leave a way to contact here or the MIssissippi forum or the Rochester Forum.

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Cory,

These days I am very fortunate to get one day out of the weekend to fish. Yes it would have been good to hookup again. Good luck and let us know about your success!
I recommend using plastics on a dubuque rig set-up! Key in on slack water while looking, searching for shallower areas adjacent to deeper stuff. 12-19 feet of water.
They are on!!!

Lipripper,

How much per hour? Not sure I understand the question? If you mean how many fish per hour, can't guarantee that, but it is pretty good action right now and it will only continue to improve!

If your indicating cost, I might make you pay for bait??

NO TAKERS? Wow thats suprising considering the company on this HSOforum. What time were you thinking about headed out Jim? If you can't find any takers I might have to jump at the opportunity to get out on the water, especially with how slow the walleye fishing has been down here in Mankato. Forcast looks cold, but no snow at least. Might have to call it an early night on Saturday...keep me posted! thanks

jparucci,

I'll keep you posted, at least until Tomorrow afternoon. That is when I leave the "web" for the weekend!

I think beyond the Tournament and other events, hooking up with other "addicts" from FM.com should be happening a lot more.

One way to spread good fishing ethics while creating new friendships! However, I have been known to be a little competetive in the boat!LOL

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Hi Jim,

If Uffdapete hasn't confirmed going with you
& the seat is still open I would love to hook up with you on Sunday if it is still possible. I haven't fished much on the river & would be great to learn what works for the rivers & meet up with another fellow angler from FM.

You can e-mail me at work till 2:30pm Fri
at [email protected] or reach me at home after 3:15pm 952.934.BAIT

Just another Fishin' Addict. smile.gif

Fishhead,

I've always had a good reputation, in my own mind!lol Keep in touch. I don't plan on putting the boat away yet!

Sarge,
It's too bad you can't make it this weekend, the action is at least 10 fold over our last outing! Thanks again for the kind words!

Sportfishin',

I have already a couple back outs so we will have to wait and see! You never know!
Where ya from?

Jim,

I live in Eden Prairie,MN SW Suburbs of Mpls. I will be home this weekend working on putting in the new windows I made for my Ice Shack. smile.gif

Give me a call or leave me a message if anyone backs out on you.I have slotted the day with the "Better Half" smile.gif for fishing on Sunday and would love to get out.

Question: What is a dubuque rig? and What kind of plastics are you using? So I can practice the old Boy Scout Motto "Be Prepared" if I get the chance to go.

Thanks Chris

Jim -
I would love to get out sometime, although this weekend I hope to get the leaves taken care of up north. We should have some warmer weather coming up.
Where is pool 4? My sister lives in Winona, sounds like it might be down that way.
I wouldn't even care if I got outfished, although I usually can hold my own.

Thanks Jim,

Keep me posted. Always reading the posts about the pools down there & would love to try it some day. Guess I'm off to Minnetonka with my rig on Sun. to search for some eyes.

As for the 3rd annual Trout day I will plan on being there. Couldn't make it this year because the Misses planned our sons birthday party that day, but next year Him & I will be there for sure.

Later & Good Fishin' smile.gif

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
