    I am new to the site and just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am pretty new to targeting cats in MN. I Grew up catching them in Montana but haven't found many spots yet to shore fish for them here. I have been out on the upper st.croix quite a few times and have had some success with smaller channels. I am hoping to plan a trip to the MN river to try for a big ol" flathead. Any tips would be great as i am not to familar with any areas south of the cities. Thanks guys and happy fishin!

    Welcome to the site. Not much shore to fish from along the Minnesota this year. Water levels have been so high.

    Shore spots are starting to open up...however the elusive flathead is being very camera shy for me the past couple trips out.

    Channels have been hungry lately tho...

    Ya might try around the New Ulm area, there is a park on the south side the river, and also South of Hiway 14 there is a boat launch on the county road that runs between hiway 14 and hiway 15 as it heads west into New ULm. I've heard Rapidan Dam is good too.

    Thats a shame for Justin.... looks like my season channel lead will continue to grow.... with you three on the battleship. :)
    Lets hope the river keeps dropping.

    I couldn't resist on the smart remark.... I don't want to look like a complete fool and talk smack when I'm at the bottom of the standings.
    Your rig is sweet. I would be most interested in a trip swap sometime soon.
    its gonna be a close run with channels this season in league. Justin can take it back pretty easy.

    lol...yea...it does. However I was able to run from shako all the way to belle plaine on 10 gallons the other day...I think once I learned how to drive it and play with the trim its gotten alot better.

    But its going to get a 4stroke or Direct Injection at the end of the year...so I shouldnt have to worry about that any longer.
