Not much to put on expect for the water is high. It is going to start to recede now though. The 9 should have it's first drop today and they are predicting a 1 foot drop by Saturday. Fish are being caught, you just have to go looking for them a little bit. 

We are having our Grand Opening Open House this Saturday. Stop in to see us. We will have a lunch available starting at 11am and it will run until 2pm or until we run out. We will have some give prizes to sign up for also. KQ98 will be here also. Hope to see you this Saturday.

River remains exceptionally high. had to launch at Green Lake. Lansing, Blackhawk, new Albin others still out of the question. although River is high, it is not excessively muddy. found fish relating to water with at least 3 ft. visibility where bait was present. Gonna go out again this evening with my new Croix Legend Extreme LXS 63MXF--it is one truly amazing wand-- for a little fun fishin'. An amazing amount of duckweed coming down the main channel today.

After giving the fish a break yesterday took the boys fishing again this morning. Hit a couple walleye spots first with no success. Went back to fishing weed edges. The boys caught bluegill, perch, short eyes, lots & lots of bass. Reid even caught this 34" northern. Quit when the sun broke thru the clouds and really started to heat up.

See ya on the river

Customers coming through the door this morning are telling me the fishing isn't all that bad. People been catching pan fish in big lake and the Walleyes are on the wing dams good right now. The only issue I am hearing at the store is that the grass is an issue getting hung up on the line a little bit. Sounds like the river will crest on Sunday or Monday here in the 9. Looks to be a pretty rapid drop after that.

The boys wanted fish for supper. So we targeted panfish this morning. Did surprising well under the conditions. Fished weed edges in 5 fow. The boys caught walleyes 1-legal, SMB, LMB, sheephead, and enough perch and gills for a good fry. A little jig with a chunk of crawler did the trick. Looks like grandpa's frying fish tonight.

See ya on the river

Have grandsons Garrett & Reid on the river with grandpa this week. Boy they picked a lousy week. High water and lots of HEAT! Got a late start this morning. The boys wanted to catch a northern. Did get a couple small ones and a few bass. We'll hit it earlier tomorrow to beat the heat.


See ya on the river

Army road boat launch at New Albin is closed.  River high and getting dirtier by the hour. Struggled to catch a half-dozen nice gills for supper.

glad your daughter's pretty face appears when you click on the foto to enlarge it! My two biggest regrets in life are when you didn't listen to me about buying that Trump suit and enrolling in the Dick Neefe School of Creative Photography. With the high water and hot weather this week I'm gonna start teaching an art class. Since we're Buds, will offer you half-off on tuition;just $42.76! Was gonna kick it off with landscapes, but will start you at the advanced level:painting my deck.   Think I'll go out and catch a few gills in Mn. slough before water gets too outrageous. new Albin ramp will likely be closed soon. Main channel is full of junk.

Stoddard kids tourney was yesterday.  This tourney is one of the best in the area for kids under the age of 11.  Very well organized with awesome door prizes which is attributed to local businesses.  Had to be on the ball diamond by 10am for a game so the fish'n time was cut short.  My daughters first year in the upper age group.  Asked her what she wanted to fish for cuz her older brother elected to stay home and rest for the ball game.  "Just a big fish" turned into a "Pike" cuz that is older brother's favorite species to fish for.  

Main channel was tough to troll with in flux of free floating vegetation.  East side a little cleaner than west.  Running sloughs off the main channel still in good shape with rising water.  We were trolling smash shads in 8 to 10 feet of water off weed lines.  Orange out did purple.  In the end her biggest pike was good enough to take the Pike category and she drew a nice rod and reel as a door prize.  Big smiles all the way around.
