Bemidji Area
January 28, 2010

We were on the North end yesterday and were on fire for overall perch numbers, for two hrs we were catching them fast and furious, we had to sort a bunch but left the lake with 10 real nice keepers, and put back a lot that some guys would have kept. The only limiting factors were that we didn't start fishing until 2:30, and our bite slowed at about 4:30.

Blackduck
January 28, 2010

The guys that hit it yesterday said that they were measuring approx. 15-16" of ice. The access is opened up and there are some vehicles that are going out of there, although there is no real plowed roads; just a couple folks plowed to their fish houses. On the southside of the Duck, Beaver Creek has plowed again this year and our folks have liked his roads. On the north end of the lake, Dunrovin is plowing this year; both of these are a pay access.

Brainerd
January 28, 2010

Deeper has been better. 18-21 Fow has been the best where we've been fishing. That's also the deepest water in this spot. Been finding them just out from the bottom of the break, near the reeds, in the deeper basin areas.

BWCA-Duluth-Ely
January 28, 2010

Went out on Island this past saturday (1-16) and had a great time. I have been fishing Island pretty hard this winter with little results, so sat. night I decided to just put tip-ups out close to my dad's house and sit on shore and have a cold one.

Cass Lake
January 28, 2010

Crane-Kabetogama-Namakan
January 28, 2010

We were up over New Years. There is about a foot of snow on the lakes with very few slush pockets. It would be kind of border line for ATV. Snowmobile would be the preferred route.

Crookston-Thief River Falls
January 28, 2010

I ran out of minnows at about 2:00am, losing a majority of them to missed fish and the others to poor casts in the dark...

Deer River-Marcell
January 28, 2010

We were on Bowstring on Friday, one crappie for four people. Tried four differant spots and couldn't mark anything.I saw three other vehicles out there so either very slow or the cold scared people away.

Detroit Lakes and Pelican Rapids
January 28, 2010

Spent last night in the house with the family, even the wife!!!! Watched the game, ate chili, and pounded on crappies. Only sore spot was the Vikings giving away the game and getting stuck in the house until 3:30 pm when a buddy with a V plow came and saved us. I lost count but we caught at least 35 crappies and a nice 16.75" walleye.

East Central Minnesota
January 28, 2010

Prior to this little cold snap I finally found a few walleye willing to bite in 16-18'. When looking into the stomach contents upon cleaning it appeared that they were eating fatheads, crappie minnows and one had a small crappie in its belly

Grand Rapids
January 28, 2010

I've fished a bunch of smaller lakes in the area for crappies for the past week and the bite has been as hot as first ice bite. The fish have been extemely aggressive all day long even on the clearer watered lakes when ya usually have to get em at low light.

Hutchinson
January 28, 2010

Me and a friend fished in the rain Saturday morning. The weather was miserable, but the fishing was great. In an hour we caught about 30 crappies and three sunfish. It was a blast. They weren't huge. The biggest was about 10.5 inches. They were suspended at 10 feet over 16 foot.

Lake of the Woods
January 28, 2010

Leech Lake
January 28, 2010

Unfortunately I didn't have a map/gps or my vexilar, so I decided to just grab some fatheads and head out on walker bay. I drilled myself two holes and told myself I was just going to fish in this one spot and if I didn't catch anything, fine, not any skin of my back. Well I set up and sent down my spoon and it just kept going down and down, I asked some fellows near me and they said 55 ft of water, not an ideal depth for icing some walleyes.

McGregor-Aitkin-Crosby Area

Things were fast and furious for first hour or so, then had to work them. Caught about 50-60, most of which were in the first two hours. Kept some for the pan, but threw most back. 18FOW

Metro Area
January 28, 2010

Was out on Waconia early Sunday morning (got to the lake around 4:30am). Quantity of fish was pretty low, but the quality was better than I typically experience, with a couple crappies a bit over 11" and one gill that was just over 9". Got back home around 10:30am and had fresh fish for lunch. Great start to the day

Mille Lacs
January 28, 2010

The lake ice is in great shape. You should be able to drive anywhere you like. Just use some common sense and bring a shovel in case you do get yourself stuck.

Minnesota River
January 28, 2010

While the sun was out the bite was pretty good. As soon as the sun dipped below the tree line it was over. I missed a couple eyes that shredded my minnows and landed 8 scrappy smallmouth. All caught on jigs and minnows. Water temp at 41. Beautiful afternoon.

Mississippi River North
January 28, 2010

If you can find an area with not much current you'd probably be alright. I can think of a couple areas but even around those areas it can be kind of shaky. I used to fish a few areas but the river ice just varys so much. On the river if you fall through its gonna be that much harder to get out with the current.

Ottertail-Perham-Battle Lake
January 28, 2010

Ended up fishing the south access near "the lodge" I think?....drilled some holes on a hump from 11-29 feet(prolly 100 or so feet from the houses close to the access) and fished the deeper side for several hours w/ only a perch biting, didn't mark any fish. About 1pm I drove a little further out and went inbetween two groupings of houses(prolly 400 feet or so from the closest house) and found 19' of water...

Rainy Lake
January 28, 2010

Rainy has been slow, somedays you can go out & do ok, my last 3 trips I have caught 1 walleye each trip, a 26", 16" & a 16.75", so nice walleyes...just not many., I did hear a report where some guys had sledded east of bushyhead and did well on big walleyes. What is nice about living up here, is if the fish aren't going one place, there are endless fishing spots & lakes.

Rainy River
January 28, 2010

We had two different groups that came on our "Bring your own gear" lodging special this weekend. What was really neat is how they worked together to produce some big fish. Many were caught in the 20's with the biggest being 29". Rainy is a big lake and when people work together great things can happen. People are driving out to Birch Point. We have great ice and a great winter ahead of us.

Red River-Otter Tail-Bois de Sioux
January 28, 2010

Warmer than normal early fall weather has made the weather very pleasant for early fall fisherman. Lack of cooling temps has held off the feverish fall bite, yet we can expect it to be on schedule again very soon.

January 28, 2010

South Central MN
January 28, 2010

got out yesterday and the fish were active again. after i got my friends truck pulled out of course. lots of gills to be had with a few nice ones my buddy could keep. the crappies were pretty touchy but there was some very nice size to them. chartruese plastics were working excellent along with tiny glow jigs and minnows. a few of the big gills pounded the minnows we had down which was kind of suprising.

St. Croix River
January 28, 2010

Woke up early this morning to go out and went back to bed because it was nice and cozy. After running a few errands through the morning, I finally made it out just before 1pm. I only drilled two holes because I was going to set up my portable and try to stay warm. I wasn't expecting much for the day.
