I believe there is a boat landing SE of Hastings about 4 miles on Ravena Trail that is referred to as DuShane's but I think the sign at the landing calls it LoveJoy landing or something like that. I have been there a couple of times and caught many bluegills and limited success on crappies (other people were doing good on crappies).

THere was good fishing a few weeks ago... alot has been taken out of there already. Way to many people hit that spot, way to easy to get to.

I live in hastings but have never been to "dushane" is this the truedale slough? There is a DNR boat ramp there on to the vermillion river off of Ravenna trail at the slough. Other than that, not sure of any water big enough to hold fish except the river. Any info would be appriciated as my wife has limited ability to walk far and we like to pan fish.

most people fish just to the left of the public access. very shallow, fish very spooky. every where else is a pretty good walk from that parking lot.

Has anybody fished DuShane's lately. I'm think about trying it again this weekend and was wondering what the bite was like lately.

I was there Sunday (27th) with a few friends. We didn't pick up any fish. I was using tipups. My buddies were using jigging rods. My Buddies son had a walleye about 18" swin right by his minnow twice, but no hookups.[sight fishing in 4 ft. water)

There were about 15 other anglers to the left of the landing in shallow water, stretched out along the shore for about 300 ft. but all I saw was a few small sunnies pulled up by the guys right near the landing.

That's the best I can tell ya.

Yeah i went out there yesterday for like a half hr and nothing. Didnt see one crappie even swim by. Then the ice started getting real loud and the whole column shifted a little bit on us, that was crazy, so we called it a day. Heard of big northerns back there this time of year, is that true?

Its about 5 6 miles out i would say, you cant miss it just keep your eyes to the left and watch for the big brown DNR water access sign. You'll go straight down to a parking lot, DONT TRY DRIVING OUT lol

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011

      Going up on 6/3.     Just looking for water temps and reports for what the bass might be doing.     Thanks, Shack

        Yup, its a Joke.. i've complained many times.   some small time radio station thinks they are sooo important running it, so they can get a whopping $2500 profit off sponsors maybe.   Plus I stood at the weigh in on day 1 and watching at least 15-20 Walleyes DIE in the net.   Many 18-20inchers.  the waves were so bad that the walleyes just banged around in the live well for 8 hours.   Ban these already!    there will be 3 tournaments this year.

      Just 1?  It doesn't look like you'll need your winter boots or snow shovel but I would bring the rain gear. Forcast I seen said chance of rain for 3 days this weekend.

      Ice is out on most area lakes.

      Thanks for the report. Those 14" fish are my favorite for eating.   If I had one of those underwater cameras I'm not sure I would be able to pull myself away from watching it, that sounds like a ton of fun!
