North of Balsam

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, my bro has a place 10 miles north of Balsam on scenic 7 and was suppose to make it up there this weekend for some deer hunting. with the storm coming opted for next week. Any spearing lakes in that area to make a good combo trip? I only spear 2-4 lbs for pickling. There are alot of lakes in this area, but some/most are boggy/cloudy. Any help? Thanks, Joe

Jig, hey thanks for the info, drive by it and always wonder? Brother has had the place for about 7 years, he's retired now lives there permantly. I'm 300 miles away and so jealous, but I get free stays. We have fished a bunch of lakes in that area, trying to get to know them but most are stained. This will give us a starting point. Thanks.

That can be good, but it's pretty dirty and hard to see. I'd try wabana. Crystal clear and there's some monsters in there, along w/ plenty of 2-10lbers

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
