Well, here is my report for the Morris Point area on 12-10-07. We hit the ice at around 9:30 am and was fishing in 24' of water by 10:00. We did not get a bite for an hour (we were marking fish from time to time). We moved to 21-22' for water at around 11:15 am. Talked to a few folks at that time and found the bite pretty slow for most. We fished hard but did not put one on the ice until 1:30. We picked up a few between 1:30 and 2:30 but after that the bite picked up and we finished at 4:15 with about 20 fish for two of us and kept 8 nice walleye and 6 decent sauger. The Walleye bit for the most part on larger gold or red glow jigs but you needed to be working them and sometimes pulling them 4 -6 feet off the bottom before they would bite. The sauger preferred smaller jigs but other than that did not seem to have much of a preference as to color or presentation. Ice was 12 - 14" and solid.

Been going out from there and/or Morris since a week ago Saturday. There is one good crack near shore at Graceton, other than that smooth sailing out to 26fow anyways.

      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!

      My Dad had picked up some Hellcats many years ago after hearing they were a hot walleye bait.  I'm sure I still have them in in his old tackle box in the shed.   I'll see if I can't dig one out and post a pic.
