I've got a buddy with a cabin in that area...

Not sure if you're talking about the lake in Backus or just the area... But there's a lot of small lakes around there... Hard to find a strong Walleye bite in many of them... But there's some good piking, and some decent pan fishing...

If you're into Bass, a lot of day can be spent chasing them on the small lakes in that area.

Our cabin is on pine mountain lake, but we are going to jump to a few lakes in the area. We are going to be mainly looking for bass, but might try for some walleye's also. I mainly fish the mississippi river near Winona, and I have never caught a musky before! So that would be an added bonus. ty for the report

There are many good lakes in that area. Birch,pleasant, webb, leech is a short trip of maybe 30 minutes. Mille lacs is on fire for both wallys and smallies. Check the lake finder on the DNR website for lake surveys in the area. We tried a lake east of hackensack after we check out the lake survey. We caught wallys at 12 noon , bright sunny sky.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
