Now the castoff timber appeared like sodden strands of spaghetti tossed helter-skelter against the Mississippi’s eastern shore.
As Griz positioned the boat, I dropped my jig and minnow to the bottom in perhaps 18 inches of water.
“River fish love structure like this,’’ Griz said. “You might find a good smallmouth here, too.’’
Not far from where we fished, Griz once bet me he could catch a walleye weighing 8 pounds or more in less than an hour. He did it in 23 minutes and the weight was almost 9 pounds.
So I figured yes, all right, maybe a smallie will be here.
Which is when my rod doubled over as a slab-size smallmouth bass took my jig and ran with it.
We would catch other fish in the half-day we spent on the water Thursday, including more walleyes, some medium-sized, some big.
But already in three hours we were at 30-plus in the boat, a lot of action in a short time.
“A good morning,’’ Griz said.
And it was.
Coming Sunday: Fly fishing for smallmouth bass from a drift boat on the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis.

Poll: Should the lake where the albino muskie was caught remain a mystery?
