MGEM backwater action saturday and sunday smallies and catfish

I got out with Jack and Dave for a Gem kids outing. the only thing missing was the kids, we has a lot of last minute cancellations. oh well, we still went, and had lots of fun, with crappie, bluegill, yellow perch, and largemouth bass willing to bite jigs tipped with plastic minnows in 1 to 5 ft of water

Here is andrew with some nice slabs

Dave gets a nice bass

Mitch nails a crappie
A good gill
slab for me

we got some nice perch too!

Cow bass?

I got out sunday after watching the vikings get beat, for a little smallie action on the river. met Jim Mc"fly" bonin, and fished for about an hour. i was getting fish steady on a chartruse shad gulp alive minnow until it started getting dark, then it looked like it was done, when bang! reared into a big fish, I thought it would be a huge bass, but it turned out to be a channel catfish. got another cat, and a walleye then called it quits.

Nice! I'm up here with Pete right now; he is up for an extended stay. He is kind of a fair weather fisherman so we haven't braved the elements which really haven't been very favorable all week.

I think he's probably staying thru Wendesday, so we may get out yet. He really wants to run his boat before winter. He may have to settle for Rock Lake instead of Mille Lacs.
