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.
gte

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

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
