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.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
