Hit the water Saturday afternoon, launched from Cold Springs. First spot didn't even get a bite, so decided to try down river a bit and only found one 18" keeper walleye. Decided on Lansing for Sunday morning, in the channel in front of the Lansing bridge. Couldn't even get the jig down to bottom without getting fouled up with grass. Not to mention the Hotshot bass tournament boats all taking off and buzzing by so close, we had to hold on from the wake. Politely waved with one finger instead of all five. After an hour we decided to hit the Lynxville dam at where we did some vertical jigging. Started off with plastics but after two drifts no bites we switched up to 3/8oz hair jigs with meat. Game on! Ended up with 4 nice walleyes and 4 wind chime Saugers. 12-18' of water was the ticket. Not as cold as predicted so that helped, overall a beautiful day on Old Man River. I'll be back next weekend, hoping I get the HotHand next time as my Brother got me on this rip.

I got out with guide Ted Peck this week. I was pressed for time so we only got a little over an hour in. 11 pike all over 27, the largest was 36. Rat L Trap was the hot bait, blue/purple. 

Thanks for accommodating my schedule Ted.  Always a good time and educational. 

Go Hawks.

Gonna be hitting the river this weekend and was wondering if anyone has current conditions on the river. I know levels are low, but how is the clarity and how much grass is coming down if any. How has the fishing been with the colder temps coming in now?

Couldn't wait to leave work on Friday in hopes of getting to a spot on the river that is notoriously good right before dark. But was disappointed and missed my window and watched the sunset from the launch. Only had Friday and Saturday to fish, so hit the water at daybreak. First spot was one that produced last week, but after three drifts and not a sniff. On to #2. A spot that has a 30' close to some rocky shore in 14-16' with less current. No one home there too. Spot #3 is a good transition area in spring and fall and was holding fish, but after an hour only one keeper and bunch of shorts we moved. Spots 4&5 were holding fish, just all too small. Fish had gizzard shad in their mouth and our jigs. 6th spot of the day is another staging area for fall transition, deep water with slack shoreline. First drift had 3 fish hit the live well. Fish were in the 18-23' depth. Using 1/2" jigs with plastic swimbaits that matched the longer minnows these fish were spitting up. Different than the shorter gizzard shad. After two hours we had 10 keepers and threw back a bunch of shorts. Keep moving till you find em. It's a humbling river but if you like the challenge of putting the pieces together, it can be very rewarding. Get out there and you too can get the Hothand.
