I spent four days with my brothers on Lake Pepin, Pool 4, Mississippi River from June 14-15. We fished the central part of the Lake from Maiden Rock to Pepin, WI. as well as the bays on the MN side near Lake City, MN. We trolled lead line with mainly chartreuse and fire tiger shad raps in 11 to 14 feet of water and caught our limits of mainly sauger with a few walleyes mixed in. We fished white bass as well one afternoon and did well chasing the gulls to the schools of white bass near the surface. Used light colored plastic twister tail type baits on light lead heads. Caught a couple of large freshwater drum in 7 - 10 lbs. range and a few 5 - 7 lb. northern pike while fishing the walleyes as well. Had a good trip and fishing was good between rain showers. Fishing has picked up well recently according to the locals.
