What a way to end the open water season!  Caught this 8.40 beauty yesterday around 1:00 vertical jigging a hair jig tipped with a minnow.  She's still swimming!  We kept a few nice saugers and smaller walleye for a fish fry.  The water temperature is now right at 32 degrees and ice is forming in the backwaters.  Some floating ice on the main river and navigation areas.  Not sure how many more times we'll be able to get back out in the boat, so this might be my last report until ice fishing starts, which shouldn't be too long now.  

I am offering my gift certificate special again this year.  Give me a call or email for information.  Thanks for reading my reports, and have a great Thanksgiving!

No fishing report or comments. Just offering up a survey to fill out for the DNR. If you don't like a limit proposal you can vote no. If you really don't fish that species I think you can vote that way as well. There is also a spot for comments as well under each species. Please fill it out. Probably more than 100,000 fishing licenses sold along the river basin and only around 200 filled out so far(heard on radio). You can see how bad percentage that is. Take 2 minutes fill it out. Paste link if your on other sites.

Not sure if link is working here. Might have to Google Minnesota Wisconsin fishing proposal changes or Lake City fishing survey or someone smarter than me post it please!

Still getting walleye and sauger,  but slower yesterday. Still some nice stringers the last few days. More perch caught yesterday but high water really messed up our perch fishing this fall.

I have always hugged (10 feet away) the barges/power plant.  When I pass the large smoke stack by 100 feet you can veer towards the middle of the river to get up to the dam.

When leaving the power plant ramp, is it best to go north and hug the barges to avoid the rocks, or go south of the island and go to the navigation channel?

I'll agree with Scloop the perch fishing has been tough. Man it's been hard to stay on them this fall with the river going up and down like a yo-yo. Went looking for perch today, fished LOTS of spots caught 3. Walleye fishing on the other hand has been good! Yesterday I had 7 legals, kept a couple eaters for a meal released everything else, including a 22"er & a 24"er. Sure hope this weather holds for a while.

See ya on the river

I was out a few times this week and it's been tough. The water is still high, muddy and dirty. It's funny that last year everybody was loading up on perch when the water was tame and the fishing was easy. Where are those people now? Waiting for someone to find the fish and post a report so they can come here when the fishing is easy, that's where.

I made the trip to Clements barge yesterday. Brought home 5 fish(2 saugers and  3 walleyes), but took all day. Pretty slow overall for most guys, but did see a few really nice stringers put together. Tito
