The river continues to be high and current flow strong, but current river forecasts show a good drop this week.  We've been out this past week with decent catches of Northerns, channel cats and panfish.  Not knocking them dead, but some nice fish daily.  The last couple of trips produced some big bluegills and perch, with a few crappies mixed in.  The "legend", my buddy Ted is in the photo with a 9 inch gill he caught yesterday.  

Lots of good fishing ahead of us!  Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week.

How is the dirty/high is the water in Lansing?  Thinking about coming up tomorrow?  Don’t need spots just conditions. Thanks everyone

Another non fishing post.  If there is anyone out there who is interested in getting their 6- pack (OUPV) pilots license that is required to carry passengers on the Mississippi River, here is a great opportunity.  They are going to hold a class right in Genoa the first and second weekends of August this year.  Gary at www.explorersguidellc.com is great at answering any questions or concerns.  He will walk you through how to get license and to do it right.  Pretty good opportunity to get it now, it will save you some $$$.  If you have any questions give him a call.

Once again, the link might not work, but if you go to www.explorersguidellc.com you will find all the information there including the class for Genoa(Lacrosse).

There is an online questionnaire for the Mississippi River.  The DNR is looking for anglers to give their input to a series of questions regarding the river.  I encourage everyone to do this.  I often see how many people give out their opinions, including myself, and this is the opportunity for you to do so.  Please take the time to find this survey.  I included a link but with my computer expertise it could very well take you to a site in Alaska.  Perhaps someone else will post the correct site for us.

Panfish trip this morning with Ernie. They didn't bite as good as they did Saturday when we had a big mayfly hatch, and pretty strong NW wind this morning. Still ended up with enough for a fry. River still dropping but very SLOWLY.

Took my boys out with Cap'n Ted on 7/14 and, as always, had an absolute blast.  The boys both mentioned on the ride home that this was their best trip with him yet.  They really get a kick out of all his great stories, and his patience as he continues teaching them.

Despite the massive mayfly hatch that occurred right before our trip, we were on fish all day.  Both boys landed a mix of LM, SM, 'eyes and Northerns. 

There were very few other boats on the river and the scenery and conditions were spectacular.

Can't wait to book another trip with Ted.

Jeff got his dad Jerry a half day birthday present to fish the river. The boys wanted to target bluegills. I was a little worried because until yesterday I was struggling to find many. The big mayfly hatch yesterday gave their location away. Could see em slurping flys at the surface. Ended up with a nice mess of bluegills, a few perch, SMB, LMB, a sauger, a walleye, and some channel cats. Lots of action!
