I thought I would start a new thread with Minnehaha Reports.

4/22/08
Went out from 4:30-7:30 and found the white bass to be very active. I brough in 4-5 myself. There were 10 or so guys fishing down there and everyone was catching white bass lure type didn't seem to matter all that much except plastic did out produce live bait. Best spot seemed to be just infront of the bridge. That spot was also producing some decent crappie action.

Couple of kids sat down with a can of corn and got into good carp action in the same spot, all the carp where between 7-10 lbs.

Quilbacks were around and 1 smallie was caught. I didn't see any walleye caught last night but my guess is that there just wasn't enough room for them in there with all the white bass and carp that were packed into the creek.

Once the water warms up alittle I think we will see increased walleye and smallie action. The action overall has picked up alot in the last 3 days.

I just walked down there yesterday (4-25). I was standing around for about ten minutes and I saw a 3 lb Walleye caught as well as a few crappie. Some other guys further down the way had a bucket with crappies and white bass. And I guess some SM bass were being caught too?

You guys eat fish from minnehaha?

Most people don't but there are always some.

I have actually considered giving the crappie a shot one of these days. (What ever doesn't kill you will only make you stronger)

Now seeing someone bring home a 10 pound carp for dinner turns my stomach but it does happen. I can't imagine how many chemicals are built up in fish that age.

Alot of people also keep the walleye and smallmouth illegally, happens all the time and it doesn't really matter how many times you tell them to throw it back.

Sounds like I might need to get out there agin this weekend.

Speaking of keeping Walleyes out of Pool 2 of the Mississippi River which is all Catch'n release and Illegal.
I was walking down the steps to fish like I always do when its rainy and crappy out and I came across Conservation Officer Thor Nelson who was carrying a 27" Walleye up the stairs he busted some knuckle-head trying hide the fish.....oops thats $300 MORON!

Anyway the fishing was slow for the 3 of us down there last night I had the only fish caught a 21" Eye......

Officer Nelson does a fantastic Job in this area often hiding in the woods with his Glass observing the area....

Thanks Thor!.... keep up the good work its greatly appreciated!

Glad to see he is out there. I figured someone was probably watching even though I never saw him. I have often looked around in the woods and bluffs around there trying to see if I could find him. My guess is that he is up on the bluffs behind you when you are facing the river.

I wonder who it was that kept the walleye? Most of the guys down there lately are the regulars and I thought most are smart enough to know better then that. I can't remember his name but there is a guy who is there every single day, he must have skipped yesterday becuase he would have made the guy release it, he is never shy about speaking up.

I haven't seen as many illegal fish keep this year but it is still a little early and the fish haven't been real active yet. When its nice a guy could hide in the woods down there and write ticket after ticket.

I thought about going down tonight but if its still slow its not worth putting up with the cold.

I'll be down probably Sunday and then most of next week.

Jerry saw him land it he went over and measured the fish he thought guy released it but he stashed it on the other side of the culvert.

He was a licensed angler who I have seen down there usually after dark with his possie and NETS!.... mad smiley mad smiley mad smiley

Me and a friend went out on saturday the 26th... throwing some rapalas.


-we caught 6 of these guys all around the same size.


Some dude tossin a jig and minnow was catching some nice eyes. A few guys were landing some small crappie. Slip bobber and minnow still looked like the most common choice.
It's a fun area that I might have never tried if it werent for my fishing pals.. Thanks guys. smile smiley

Braving the cold can pay off.

I wanted to get out there this weekend but never got the chance. Its good to see someone else got out to keep the fish company.

PB,

I wonder if that guy will be showing his face around there again? From your description I don't think I have seen him before. If people know him he might find it easier to find a new place to fish.

This is the first time I have seen or heard of someone keeping a trophy fish just for the trophy. Most people I see are keep the walleye and Smallies for food, but they also keep everything else they catch. I don't like it but I do find it far more understandable.

Hopefully this was a one time lapse in judgement.
