Had a great time today fishing with Chris his father Don and son Mitch. Caught a mixed bag northern pike, bass, walleye& sauger and even a few sheephead imagine that! Caught fish casting rat-l-traps, chatterbaits, and where some spots were getting weedy swim jigs too. Caught some walleyes & saugers drifting with jigs/crawlers. Lots of badgering one another, lots of BS, lots of fish, lots of fun, despite the constant liquid sunshine!

See ya on the river

Report for last few days fishing. Perch are eluding me, just can't find any bunch of em anywhere, a lone fish here and maybe a lone fish there. That'll get better as the river continues to drop and the weeds continue to grow up. Walleye trip today---much better! Boated 13 eyes in a variety of ways. Caught fish dragging jigs/crawlers, casting rat-l-traps, trolling cranks, & casting chatterbaits. Very enjoyable morning on the river.

See ya on the river

The fishing is really slow and spotty! NOT! Bass have to eat or starve. Water goes up! fish go up!

The fishing is really slow and spotty. There was 1 or 2 boats below the dam. Those on shore would either fish for hours and leave with a few perch or maybe a couple of walleyes. Most of the time, people would leave for better fishing grounds. Word was that fishing will pick up when the river stabilizes, probably when the fishing barge reopens. I would use that as the return signal. Until then, I wouldn't waste the time.

I called this morning Monday, the barge is closed because of high and raising waters. The river has not crested yet. Folks are getting fish from shore.

This is our 5th year to fish Pool 9. We have made the trip each spring, summer and fall. Fished Monday thru Wednesday and experienced our least successful trip ever. We generally will target whatever the river is offering. This year it offered great weather, good fellowship, high and rising dirty water and very few fish. I've fished from Texas to Canada and Pool 9 is one of my favorites. We will be back but not until the river has stabilized.

Just wondering if anyone has been out after some LMB's. Wondering how it was and if anything worked better than others.

Fished all day yesterday targeting walleyes. Fished from below the dam to Hwy 82. No walleyes. Caught LMB, Perch and was bit off by a few northerns. The water is going up at least a foot per day and is up over many of the islands. The river is full of debris as well as very dirty. Only 3 boats at the mouth of De Soto Bay instead of 40. Fished hair jigs and Keitech Swing Impact paddle tail worms. The 3" model is a great perch lure, the 3.5 and 4 have caught lots of walleyes but not this week. Water is going to keep coming up for a couple weeks w/o rain, if we get storms it's going to get ugly.
