Those are nice PFD's you guys are wearing. They would keep you plenty warm in that 37 degree water.

Nice! I went for for my first 2021 paddle Sunday on the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland. Want to paddle again this weekend but it has turned a little chilly! Didn't fish this time, but believe it or not there are steelhead in there.


(Live webcam photo of me paddling Sunday afternoon. Cell phone screen grab. My dad's 1993 OT Pack gifted to me in January.)

I LIKE THIS! :)

I am going in below Lock and Dam #1 (MPLS) next week.
Hopefully, the boat launch at Hidden Falls Park is launchable *fingers crossed.
Will post the most sun-shiniest pics I can manage!

HAPPY SPRING!

Nice! I've got a 50 year old 16' flat bottom I was given and I put an older Honda 50 on the back and a used Terrova 80 up front w/ remote. Nice setup for the river when it's not super choppy. I've never had it above the QC yet though. I'll have at least one of my Helix 7's on the back...maybe 2. (one for SI, one for map/DI)

I got my limit of walleyes leaving from the marina there a time or two last fall. Best days I've had down here yet. Helix said I was in 0.6' of water at the mouth of the marina....water was low! haha I have no idea how any of those bigger cruisers docked in there got in/out.

First picture is a nice slot fish that hit a big spinnerbait for some reason. Then some nice eaters that were all on purple cranks trolling

Sunset marina?

No, the little one right in Andalusia. Driveway where you're supposed to honk up and over the levee, enough slips for maybe 20 boats.
