Hitman. We did well on Lida last week. Clay point was producing for us pretty well, I was surprised by that they were up on top of the shelf in 13 fow more than they were on the dropoffs there. It was really a good week of fishing, the amazing thing was that it wasn't just walleye we were catching everything under the sun (walleyes, smallies, northern, largemouth, etc.) in the same spot and all on leeches and Lindy rigs. Most were in the slot, but we did catch a few to eat under the slot and we had a great time.

Nike --

I have been on Lida a few times and everytime I hit into 'eyes I also caught a number of other fish as well, sunnies, bass etc.

I wonder if that is a "thing" with Lida -- I know a MHD PD guy on this site that could provide us with some insight?

Thanks

Hit.

There are a few small lakes around here with a very hot walleye bite right now. Basically just trolling spinner rigs with leeches along the weed edges. Now it's going to get disgustingly hot out.

we went to the same lake again on the 4th and hammered em again 50+ eyes. they would bite anything we put down there but what work best was a hammered copper spinner just slowly reeling it in with a leech but a jighead did perform good also. we had to leave cause we ran out of leeches and we could start to feel the sunburn pretty well also. we would find little holes in the weeds just stacked with the fish

      South Shore.  A good bite was reported for last week with the warmer temperatures in 24-32'. In addition to traditional daytime bite, some anglers getting into some good fish after dark on structure which is not typical. Morning evening bite in 15-17' for walleyes continues to be good.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape as warm weather moving around ice. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink UV.  Small rippin raps in bright and gold colors. Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained hot. Good walleyes in 18-28' with saugers and perch in deeper water. Set dead stick a bit higher than jigging line.  Resorts guiding for crappies on the Ontario side of lake, best bite in 30' or deeper, morning best. Crappie mortality rate high when releasing in 25' or deeper thus move on to walleyes or another species when you have your fish.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Jerkin, you are absolutely onto something. Back when I used to put a permanent out in the south metro, I made sure to fish as many weekdays as possible. Weekends were always worthless, no matter the conditions. Luckily vermilion is big enough to get away from it all!

      Clifford, how is the slush out there? I have slush in front of my home and looking at sled tracks they are turning color also.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.
