ANYONE GOING TO BE FISHING DES MOINES BRIDGES THIS YEAR?
Bridges...in Des Moines? I fish them often in the spring, summer, and fall. Downtown is my favorite place to go.
I WILL SEE YOU IN A COUPLE MONTHS LOL.. WHICH BRIDGE? I LIKE SE 6TH
how do you fish off the bridges and how do you land your fish??? ive never fished off bridges that big...is that pretty good flathead fishing up there??
Good luck catching your little fish this year flathead steve
I do a couple - Grand and Scott Street mainly. You get a long rope attached to a big net to land em, though it can prove to be a big big challenge. I remember wanting to fish the bridges and thinking of a brilliant idea of tying a long rope to a hoop with a net in it and taking it out to a bridge in Des Moines only to find that every one and their grandma had already thought of the idea. It helps, beyond words, to have a partner when trying to reel in a hog and having to man your net.

I WILL BE GOIN EVERY DAY THIS WEEK RAIN OR SHINE! I WORK SECOND SHIFT SO I WONT BE ON THE BRIDGES TILL ABOUT 11:30 PM.. BEEN TEARIN UM UP!!!
Went out to Scott Street today and fished for a couple hours. I had a left over chub in the freezer and instantly caught a 2 to 3 pound channel on that. Then I caught about a 6 pound carp and filleted it, catching two more 2 to 3 pound channels off of the chunks of that. All in all it was ok. I can't wait till the live bait starts setting 'em off. It was nice to hear my clicker again. Let me know how you all are doing out there. Later.
I have been slaughtering the channel cats too, they all seem to be 3-4-5 lb so far..... I think its gonna be a great year... I have hooked some flathead already but nothin big....5lbers.... Its still early,
Bait ? what are you using?
