Hows the fishing?


Recommended Posts

Me and my buddy went out both yesterday and today all day. NOTHING! Im not even sure we had a legit bite in about 16 hours or so of fishing. I had caught a bunch of sucker and even a couple sheepshead last week that we were using as cutbait, and we were also using bullheads. We tried every type of cover or bottom structure that the mississippi has and still couldnt even get a bite. From 5 foot shallows to 80 some foot drops by the dams, logjams, rip rap, bridge pillars, barges, holes, and current seams. Now u would think u would accidently come upon a hungry fish. Hows everyone else doing or do i just have this good of luck?

About the same. The only answer is to keep your hooks in the water. Sooner or later you will catch one. Quit complaining - put some bait on your hooks and keep fishing. You are getting closer to your next fish - don't stop now.

I guess it's been slow lately, so don't feel bad.

But expect it to pick up. We're really at the beginning of the season, remember that. This week's 80 degree temps will help, and the lack of rain for a few days will be great. I'd say by mid-week the fish are going to be snapping pretty well again.

Last night we had 2 very solid "flathead-ish" runs, but one of them gave up before we had a chance at a hookset, and one was lost due to swing-and-miss (not by me).

Wasnt by any means trying to sound like i was complaining. Any amount of time fishing is usually better than anything else. Catching them or not. I was more or less just trying to get the low down on how everyone else was doing. Hooks will be staying wet, thats for sure!

we had similar luck this weekend here in S. MN. spent about five hours sat. night and three last night with only two decent channels. i'm still skunked on the flatheads, but agree with the others in that it won't be long now.
