Thank you to the 12 brave anglers who made it to the MN Summer fish-in. Heavy rain up north resulted in the water level rising 5-6 feet and the 400 yards of fishable bank space was pretty much all submerged. We had to wade out to cast and lost a ton of fish to snags and floating debris. Even in tough conditions, we landed 16 carp, 1 buffalo (and a lot of channel cats) Congratulations to Max for landing a 17.5 lb fish and taking the 1st place medal Congratulations to Nathan for landing 3 carp (and a lot of cats) in the 5 hours he fished. He got 2nd place
What a great day Sunday!- drove 3 and half hours to visit my brother and mom and just had to try the Mississppi-well, a slough off the Mississip.....caught the first, an 8lb 4ozer within 3 minutes!!!, then a 4lb 10oz, 6lb 7oz and 9lb 4 oz trading catches with my son! (see separate thread)....in two hours we caught 6 fish weighing 41lbs!!....air temp 43F and water temp 46F. Had there been ANY wind, we would have caught nothing!!!.....the second fish has a few irregular scales and is much lighter than the other three but I'd still guess it as a common, rather than mirror, ghost, or other correct
