Went out Saturday. 1 boat in the lot and the river was rolling. Flew down river and fished a flat pulling cranks. Hoping to pick off whites and maybe some sauger hanging on the flat edge. 1 obnoxious grass cap snagged. and a dozen or so whites. Some were footballs. Biggest went 16" Good rips on the boards. Kid had a blast! chartruse was the hot color. Water stain visibility about a foot. Good conditions despite the wind. Good luck out there.

Finally was able to get out again this afternoon. Beautiful day to be on the water!

Wind light out of the NW, air temp was around 48. water temp at 43. The current was fairly strong but not a problem, water clarity was about 8-10". Didn't get on the water til around 12:30, headed in at 3:30

 tried a pass just upstream from the elevators, was marking tons of fish about 16' but between the current and just enough wind, holding bottom with jigs was pretty tough. Ran up to the clam beds caught a couple shortys and missed a couple before I was able to zero in in their location, They seamed to be holding in about 16'-18' on the channel break, caught a couple of nice males and missed a couple as well. Using hair jigs and a jig with a spoon attached, tipped with Gulp minnows.

No problem, That was my 1st time to Hennepin. Usually fish SR or Ottawa if I fish the illinois. Went back yesterday 01/01.. Tried to vert jig again and the current was just too much, along with the wind, boat control was a problem, so ran cranks again for an hour or so. Had 2 rips on a board that came unbuttoned. Could only troll up river as down river was way too fast of a speed to keep cranks wobbling. Once the water comes down some, Ill try again until we have ice again, If ever. GL out there.

Ice fished 8 days prior on 4" ice. Obviously that wasn't an option so loaded the boat back up and went looking for sauger also. Started jigging a channel break, marking fish, not biting. Tried bottom bouncing both crawlers and minnows also, nothing. So switched up to cranks on flats and found white bass biting cranks, and a mini pike. Had a blast pulling boards with my son 9-12' adjascent to deep water. Water temp 42-44 an lots a junk floating, dirty water. Managed to get him on some fish though.

Out again today, nice day to be on the water. It was warm and winds were light. 

Only problem, the fish weren't cooperating. 

Boated 2 shortys and had another 3-4 hits in 4 hours. The water was up nearly a foot, clarity was down to about 8" and the temp was 8 degrees higher than Tues
