The Mississippi River is stabilizing and the fish are getting into a repeatable pattern.  You'll find a mix of smallmouth and largemouth bass when fishing reed and bank edges that have good flow with ambush points that have accumulated duckweed.  Use a frog when weeds make other presentations useless.  A swim jig  will do wonders when thrown parallel to the bank keeping it in the sweet spot as you use a steady retrieve.  Below is a collaboration video I did with Wisconsin Wildman that shows situations just like that!

Changes are happening that will put the walleye spawn into high gear over the next week.  The water temperature was 44 F yesterday and will warm rapidly with the weekend sunshine.  I fished Pool 7 both Tuesday and Friday and caught female walleyes still full of eggs.  Just when you thought the river was dropping it started to rise again and water clarity became poor.  Yesterday visibility was less than a foot.  Fish were still catchable but were specifically keyed in on charteuse baits where on Tuesday it seemed like they would hit anything.  If you want to try this prespawn bite do it now.  Check out the action from Tuesday in my video below! Good luck!

If you're heading out on the Upper Mississippi River in search of panfish focus your fishing efforts on areas that have some flow and clear waters.  These conditions will provide the oxygenated waters that fish are seeking.  Don't be afraid to fish ultra-shallow waters.  If there is oxygen and food the fish will be there.  Check out some recent sight fishing action below.  Thanks!!!

Good bites can still be found despite it being the dead of winter.  Timing is key with bite windows being few and a lot of times short.  I like to get out as the barometer is falling and a front is approaching.  Check the weather forecast and plan your next outing ahead of one the many fronts that have been moving through the area lately.  The action can be fast and furious!  Of course, the best time to fish is whenever you can!  Good Luck and Be Safe!

I am looking for some help from someone willing to give me tips and locations to try.  I am a coach for a high school ice fishing team that will be in La Crosse for the state high school ice fishing tournament Feb. 16th.  We are from the opposite side of the state and have never fished this area before, so we are coming in blind.  The tournament is on pools 7 and 8 and we are restricted to certain areas.  Basically, any areas of river current are off limits. This is a 10 bluegill, 10 perch, 10 crappie, 5 northern and 5 bass tournament only.  No walleyes. We will have 10 kid team and what I listed is what each team can enter.  If someone is willing to help, please message me, I can send you maps of the areas we are allowed to fish.  And for those that have posted fishing reports, Thank You, I have gone back and read a number of posts to try and figure out what is going on.

Curious as to what the results were for the Catfish Days fishing tournament? I saw that all rollers were wide open had to have been tough boating although lots of trucks and trailers!
