Guess my catch is not a walleye... still a good sign of fish moving around

a little chilly even with the neoprenes... bumped several fish, can't say I wasn't giddy thinking it were legit eyes or pike... most likely other carp

air was 36'F water was less

Nice video update.  Looks like you had the river to yourself.  

I have been there and done the iceberg dodge before on the Mississippi.  One year, i was the first boat to lock through the Winona dam for the season.

Here is some good spot. There is a small island near the dam the holds fish. Also the river bend down from river edge. Great walleye spot but should should other fish

Jcards,

yep that area is still there. There’s a huge, lower end eating, hull smashing rock bar right there. Big sign telling rentals to turn around. If the river is up you can get past it in a couple spots. If you don’t know it best to stay away.

Thanks for the advice guys 
Also, it's been years since I've fished here and I remember there being a "cable" area. Is this still there and why was it the boundary for rental boats?

Talk to the boat rental place and the guys in the bait shop at rivers edge.  They will give you some good pointers.  But yah, look for some slack water and deeper holes down river.  Up by the dam, it is a lot of rock and a lot depends on the water flow that time of year how best to fish it.

First off if you use there boat bring and extra anchor and extra rope for the one they give you. Second if you have some kind of portable fish locator bring it. Look for current seems  near the shallows and the most important thing the sun needs to be out.  Hope this helps .
