I am coming to the willmar area this next weekend and plan on taking the boat with me. Any suggestions on an area lake, I might just end up spending the entire night on the lake so something with cats would be a plus. Thanks for any info.

For cats you'd have to go to Foot Lake,Willmar Lake or Big Kandi,Elizabeth. Willmar would be my choice lots a structure for eyes and good cat pop. cool.gif

If you want cats on foot lake fish off shore from ella ave there is a small culvert there use a phelps floater and a crawler the later the better 2-4am lots of 5 to 10 pound channels. Dont bother fishing eyes out there pop is way down. I would go out to green and pull #5 shadraps out on the edge of the flats I was out there fri night lots of fish nothing big but a few 15 inchers lots of 12 inchers and tons of bass and sunfish. yeah the sunfish are hammering the shadraps? good luck.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      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.
