Unfortunately the bite I was on has fizzled quite a bit since my last report. Iíve only managed a few mid-sized walleyes, some northerns, and some smaller crappies.

On the plus side, I found this prime Chicken of the Woods my last time down. Thatís why I love fishing the river; you never know what you might come across down there.

The Minneapolis Chain of Lakes is a good best for Bass and Muskie. Not the easiest lakes to learn but worth the time invested.

I'm guessing you're talking about the blade baits with 2 treble hooks like the B3 Blade Bait from Custom Jigs & Spins.

I've had my best luck with those styles of baits in Spring and Fall, but I honestly haven't tried them much in the Summer months. I don't see why they wouldn't work in certain situations. If you try it and have any luck I'd be interested to hear about it for sure.

Ryan nice fish.. I'm a river rat myself. What kind of crankbaits are you using and color? I typically use jigs.


I was primarily using SR5's and SR7's. Colors were all over the place but the most productive were clown, chart/white, perch, UV green & UV pink. We also got a few on Husky Jerks, natural patterns.

We also did well on a jig with both purple/chart tail and green/orange core 2.45" & 3.45" Pulse-R's.

Thanks man. The bluegill fishing in my area hasn't been half bad either.

I stand by my MN River suggestion. These fish were all caught from shore. It can be the dead sea out there, but if you figure out the right pattern it can be dynamite.

With the dropping water over the last week, the fishing on the MN River has been extraordinary. Cranks and jigs/plastics have both been producing good numbers and sizes of walleye and crappies on mid depth to shallow rock.

I fished a "new to me" shore spot that I've wanted to try during a high water period and it didn't disappoint. Over 3 evenings myself and a few friends landed 15 eyes between 19" & 29" and about a dozen crappies (black and white) that hit the 13" mark with numerous other smaller fish of both species. Peak times were 5:30pm to 8:30pm with very few fish coming after dark.

I've had some great outings on the MN in the past but I've never encountered these numbers and sizes from the bank.

Pictured - 29", 26", 24", 20" & 19" eyes plus 3 13" crappies.

Can someone explain how to post multiple pictures in a new thread? I can't seem to figure out how to post more than one at a time.

Also, is there a max number of pictures you can post?

Thanks for any help.

Here's an A-Z list of shore fishing locations from the DNR.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing_piers/statewide_list.html

A decent option in your area would be the Bass Ponds down by the river. It's a little bit of a walk but can have some decent fishing.

You could also go to the MN River launch off of Lyndale. There are trails going through the woods that you can use to access the river in various locations. It might be a little high/fast and muddy for decent shore fishing now, but when it drops a bit and the shoreline dries out its a good multi species location.
