How far south from camp are you? I am a couple miles south of main gates.

We don't go past 115 bridge very much, fish mostly between the bridge and the park. They have been starting to hit topwaters pretty good lately. I don't use buzz baits much, mostly pop-r's and chug baits. Today my wife was using leechs and caught a few really nice ones.

We have a red 14 Lund with a muskie sticker on the side, if you see us out there give a holler.

I tried wading from the Nokassippi access. Caught an 18 inch smallmouth 2nd cast that was about it. A bit too deep and mucky for wading look forward to coming back in my canoe. The backwaters must be a blast in the spring.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
