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!

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
