Half day panfish trip with Dave, 11yr old grandson Gavin, and son-in-law Andrew this morning. Dave wanted to get his grandson into fishing. Panfishing really picking up, we caught a ton of fish kept 28 for a fry for the gang. A few gills, a couple slab crappies, the rest perch. Had real nice fish biggest gill 9", crappie 13" and perch 14". Along with the incedental sheephead redhorse small walleyes, and catfish. Somebody catching a fish nonstop. Absolutely perfect day to be on the river.

See Ya on the river

Went out looking for perch for an upcoming trip. Humminbird said they were still there. River fly carcasses said they wouldn't bite. they didn't. Caught several short eyes and called it a day

mike wanted to cross pike off of his species bucket list, so we headed out at first light for a half-day snot rocket quest. First couple spots produced only LMB, one was a very fat 18 1/2"er. Third spot produced two small pike. Three hours gone. Went to the ACE-- a protected arc just off the main channel with good visibility and secondary weed patches out from the shoreline weeds. In the last hour he caught a limit of 24-33"ers. No monsters, but a good pull. Did see an upper 30s fish come up and look at the Northland spinnerbait and skulk away. With River levels pretty much stable she'll probably be cruising near there for a couple days...or not. Few boats out this morning. Cool temps 60 degree ambient when we got off the River at 10. Hammock is calling my name, and it ain't even noon. Sleepy

Got almost 2" of rain in less than an hour last nite. Figured this would impact the fishing but wanted to check my trolling motor to ensure seals were intact. Spent about an hour figuring out everything was okay--and caught 6 LMB, 1 17" eye and 2 pike in the process on a swim jig. Guess I was wrong about the rain impacting the fishing! biggest pike about 24", biggest bass just 16". Visibility in Mn. slough about 10" in the clearest spots key was finding this slightly clearer water.

Fished with Tom this morning.River looking real good and most fish back in predictable patterns. Started off with a few SMB, then caught a few pike. Then went after eyes. Caught a half dozen shorts in 20 minutes on the Josh pork crawler, then finished up with some more SMB. All went well until i loaded the boat and headed home. Trolling motor deployed when crossing the railroad tracks. Bent the skeg and jammed up the deploying mechanism. Went straight to J-Man's MinnKota repair in Harpers Ferry. He met me with a socket wrench in one hand and a screwdriver in the other. had me fixed and back on the road in less than 30 minutes. J-man probably could have finished in 20 minutes but his superhero cape kept getting in the way. Glad it was the rocker mechanism and not the pivot pin! Big Smile

Half day perch trip this morning with Dan. Started out in some shallow weeds where I caught some big perch the other day. First bite an 18" walleye-- jigging in weeds in 2FOW-- go figure. Had to really work for em but did end up with some nice perch to 14" al9ng with one lonely bluegill. Fishing should get better every day now with the river slowly dropping and the summer heat coming on.

See Ya on the river

The river level contiues to slowly fall and water clarity is improving. Went on a search for perch yesterday. They are starting to show up in their summer areas. Didn't catch any huge fish, but ended up with a decent mess for a couple of meals. Caught them in about 4 FOW both on the bottom and using a slip bobber.

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a good weekend!

Bass/pike trip with cousin Johnnie today. Caught about 25 SMB/pike. No big SMB but Johnnie had a pig snot rocket come running at the boat and jump off. Upper 30s fish.he was throwing an oxbow Trap. Caught a few SMB on the senko,the rest throwing cranks & spinnerbait.Location a key. There are some parts of the pool on the main channel with >2' vis. --this is where we caught the most fish.

channel cat trip with cousin Johnnie yesterday. Fish just coming off of the spawn. Water clearer on upper east side of pool. Weeds a problem already! amazing! Used Sonny's regular tweaked with a couple of secret ingredients. Frosting lickers outnumbered biters 3 to 1. Unsure if these were fiddlers or just disinterested due to the spawn. Biggest cat only about 4 lbs., but johnnie will take home enough cat to get him through the summer. Today i think we'll chase pike/bass. Subject to change as the River speaks.

Often promised long overdue trip with brother-in-law John yesterday. Seems the only time we get to fish together is February when fishing is tough and it's 10 below zero. Targeted panfish cause he wanted enough fish for a fry. Thought sure I could wow him with some of those 13" & 14" perch I found the day before, Nope they were GONE! Searched around till we found another bunch of perch. Had to settle for 10"ers though. Had a few gills & crappie mixed in. Along with a bonus flathead, pike, and a 19" largemouth that I had to work quickly to get a photo of before John chucked it back. Seems he doesn't like bass. Had great day on the river and ended up with plenty of fillets for a good fry.

See Ya on the river

catfish slayer; think of the Miss as many smaller rivers rather than one big one! Most of the action now is in these smaller channels, trib entry points and similar habitats.

Does anyone know good spots to catfish either from shore or boat. I'm from northeast wi and I plan on coming here in July for a weekend. Fox river cats aren't big enough. Thanks in advance.

Went looking for some panfish today. Upper Iowa doesn't even look like water it's rolling MUD! That'll screw up a good portion of the pool for a while. Took a lot of searching before I finally found some fish. Got into a few nice gills & crappies and a bunch of big perch. Rewarding after looking for so long without success. Kept a couple perch for supper.

See Ya on the river
