      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Nice Places to see?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am heading up to the lakes in a few weeks with some family and friends. I have been fishing the lakes for years but never spent much time site seeing.

I was hoping someone could give me some pointers on scenic locations on kab/nam/sand pt/little vermil etc. I want to show my family a good time and enjoy the scenery of the park.

Thanks

Got to the end of Lost Bay on Kab and take a hike on the Eks trail. You might be able to find some lake blueberrys.

Just got back Sat. & with the weather as it is you should stop by a wonderful beach in Little Vermilion. It's a mile or two into the lake. The beach faces North with a large rocky point to the left. There are two small camp sites there. Pure sand & shady for much of the day. Just beach your boat & wade in.

In addition the above mentioned, take a trip to Namakan Narrows and look at the Petroglyphs on the rock walls.

Lit. Ver. - as soon as you get thru the King Williams Narrows (going N.) make a hard right & after a 1/4 mi or so make another hard right. You're then in L.V. Say hello to the fellow hanging from a tree on an island there.

Hangman's Island. Like bigtimber said, it's on your way into Little Vermilion. When going pass Hangman's Island though, keep right. There is a large reef in the middle there so stay closer to hang man's island and stay right for about 100 yards pass the island and then it's ok to go back to the middle again.

Also, as you get into King Williams narrows, heading North, you'll boat next to a large rock wall on your right (just before you get to the cabins on the East side of the narrows). In that rock wall nature created a person's face in the wall. It's a large face too, it covers the entire height of the wall. I had always thought it was just something that myself and my family had noticed until I recently saw a map that had it labeled as "Face in the Rock." Whenever I go up there with new people and point it out they all see it and are amazed. If you're not looking for it you don't see it. Kind of like seeing shapes in the clouds.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year

      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.

      Hey all, Heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow.  What has been the hot bait?  Shiners, fatheads??? Flash "Set the Hook"

      There are notes in some of the other recent LOTW posts on Knights/Bridges reefs.  I have no personal recent experience to share at this time.

      Our group is coming up March 10-13 this year instead of the typical mid-Feb trip.  We usually hit the reefs/islands in Feb with reasonable success, so I'm curious if that pattern is going at the moment.  Never fished LOW in mid-March, so we're not exactly sure how to approach things.  The current reports sound a bit slow at the moment, which probably isn't all that unusual for this time of year.  If anyone has any first hand knowledge of the reef/island bite, you can either response or PM me.  Thx.

      I like to fish a frozen shiner along with a live fathead on a single hook.  Even though the shiner is dead, I think the movement of the fathead creates the illusion that it's a live shiner.  It's worked for me many times anyway and it's usually better than either a frozen shiner or fathead by themselves.
