Heading up this weekend, wondering how things are going. Was up last weekend north of Duluth and turnover had happened and most of the weeds where brown. It was some hard fishing looking for bass tips.

its that time of year when most locals are starting to get into hunting mode and have put the rods away. Jason might still be fishing, i would say the bass and pike should be biting up shallow the eyes will still be on the weededge i would imagine. Jonah

Yes, I've still been out. I had three guide trips last weekend and success was varied dependent upon the lake. In terms of bass, the smallmouth are insane. Potato was good for the big smallmouth, especially last Sunday morning when it warmed up a bit. Largemouth have been active as well. However, Eighth Crow Wing was very bad, the water looked like chocolate milk. But many lakes have been doing pretty well.

Not the best weekend for fishing, 30 mph winds kept us off the lake most of the weekend but still got a good 10 hours+ out there. 2 pike, 1 bass, 2 sunfish, and 1 perch. I tried spoons, spinners, dt's, floaters, shad raps, bobber and sucker, the best comb I found and caught all the fish was a chartreuse 1/4oz. jog with a fathead or leech. Most fish where coming out of 10 - 12 fow and the weeds where brow on most parts of the lake except for the drops. Also the weeds had what looked like barnacles on them not sure what that is. All in all not a bad weekend would have liked more fish but the weather wasn't helpin.

Good luck on the water!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
