Probably heading up to there on Friday mid-day. How have the muskies been biting? Any suggestions? I have only fished there 2 or 3 times. Mainly Vineland bay.

Big fish are moving on the weed beds on the north end and also on many of the reefs on the east side. Look for buoys and start casting...it can't get any easier.

Just like Paul said. This is a great time to be on the Pond as the entire lake is alive with activity. There are literally fish everywhere. Weeds, rock and sand all hold fish right now. Get adventurous and troll some of the sharper breaks on the flats.Shhhh.If it's "Africa" hot, get off the water for awhile and fish into the night.Fish are eating bucktais, topwater and 'Dawgs.Prepare for success and have a blast.

Jim,

My 2 best Dawg colors are pearl white and walleye.I'm throwing strictly Mags with the occassional Pounder.We use a lot of straight retrieve but as the water has warmed, ripping over, through and around cabbage has produced fish. Make contact with the cover if possible. Good luck and have fun!! Steve

Fished from noon-midnight on Friday. Fished vineland bay, 3 mile roof, big point, flamingo reef, wahkon bay, spirit island, and a couple of bars on the south side. Had 1 follow on vineland bay. East winds and clear skies. This is probably the worst weather to fish in, isn't it? confused.gifVineland bay was very dirty. The east side was pretty clean. Maybe I will try again some other day.

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2017 expire Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Licenses for 2018 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2018 fishing licenses become effective Thursday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2017 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. This year license fees increase by $3 for a resident individual angling license, and fees also increase for other license types including deer hunting licenses, sports licenses and lifetime licenses. License fees support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. “Thank you to all who purchase a license. License fees pay for the work we do and the dollars go directly toward improving fishing and hunting opportunities in Minnesota,” said Steve Michaels, DNR licensing program director. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. Customers are encouraged to update their customer record online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Adding an email, while not required, allows the DNR to send important hunting and fishing information, and gather input through surveys. More information about how the DNR spends license dollars can be found at mndnr.gov/LicenseDollarsAtWork. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      A youth paired with an adult can join other youth-adult pairs to learn the basics of fly fishing from experienced instructors from evening on Friday, April 27, to afternoon on Sunday, April 29, near Lanesboro.  “Youth and adults in these classes are both beginners so they can learn to fly fish together,” said Deb Groebner, a regional specialist with MinnAqua, an educational program of the Department of Natural Resources. “When they finish the weekend, they’ll be ready to take on more fishing adventures for a variety of species.” To participate, youth must be 11 to 17 years old as of April 27, and adult and youth must each have less than 5 hours of fly-fishing experience. The registration fee is $130 per pair and includes meals, lodging, guiding services, equipment and additional materials. Sponsorships to offset registration fees may be available from angling and conservation organizations. This event is limited to 20 youth-adult pairs. Apply online. For more information, contact Groebner at 507-359-6049 or deborah.groebner@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
