Ike,

When you mean the bite is transitioning from the "lake" to the "river" what do you mean. Sorry if this is a dumb question. Can you give me some general coordinates. what do you mean by "lake" and "river". Thanks.

Ike, can you also comment on the time of day? Has there been a time of day that seems to be the most productive?

ill try to answer your questions.every fall when the water temp.drops the sauger and walleye move up river towards the dam.we beleve the warmer water attracts alot of bait fish and the fish like to put on some wait before winter.morning is probly the best time.but when the bite is real strong like spring and fall ive had great luck all day long.try a brite colored ikes hair jig tipped with a minnow.im going out saterday ill give you a up date then.good luck IKE

Lake = Lake Pepin

River = Mississippi River up to the Red Wing Dam

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
