Took advantage of the nice day yesterday and hit the river with Chip and Dallas for some walleye action.  We did pretty good catching limits of nice sauger and walleye.  Chip got the largest fish of the day, this nice 20 incher which he released.  Might get a couple more trips in yet, but the water temp is at 34 degrees now.  Ice is forming in the shallow bays and protected areas, so ice fishing is right around the corner!  I'm getting all my ice gear out and organized, so I'll be ready for first ice!

Just to let you know, I am offering my holiday gift certificate special again this year.  Get that "hard to buy for" person in your life a fishing trip for the holidays.  

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

Delayed my fishing trip until today.  I think the front that moved through really made fishing tough. Caught a few rough fish, one white bass and one small sauger.  Tough, tough day.  Weather wasn't bad given temperature.  Not many other boats out.  Water temp was 34.5 - 35.5.  Hopefully it will warm up a little more to get the fish active, or just freeze so we can get out on the ice.

Fishing was just awful this weekend. Usually pretty good bite last couple weeks. Maybe the cold front messed it up.

Had some Veterans yesterday for free fishing. Shout out to them and big thank you for your service.

We close today. I had hoped to stay open another week but my wife had other plans. She' s right. Treatments every day wearing me out and surgery coming up...had to close. My thanks to all our customers. Good luck to everyone this winter. I'll be out a little, never took any fish home, doctor said to stock up! Thank you.

Oh couple guys getting fish today on willow cats! I've never fished them this late in the year, has anybody else?

Fished Thursday afternoon (9th), Friday and Saturday. SLOW! Temps on Friday morning were 12 degrees. Targeted around the Clements barge. Caught 3 sauger. Saturday we bugged out early after 4 hours on the water and not one fish. Saw a few fish pulled up on the barge on Friday but very far and few between. Picked a crappy weekend to take a fishing trip.

New to posting on this board.  Been reading for probably 2 years off and on.  Will be up fishing on Friday.  Cold, real cold is the forecast.  I fish the area 6-10 times a year, primarily in the fall.  Hopefully the fish are still near the areas they were 2 weeks ago.  River has dropped about a foot since then, but I'm guessing stay near the wintering holes and I should be fine.  Will try to post results as I have been the recipient of some really good information here.  Everyone stay safe out there.

Fished Clements float today and slow was the word. Saw the occasional fish caught but no large numbers. A few decent saugers, walleyes and pike.  I only caught 6 fish total with one legal walleye, a couple of decent saugers and a nice perch.
