Last two trips to Buf have been a bust for me. Not even marking much on the Vex. Trips before this I was catching a nice mixed bag of Walleyes and Crappies with some dinky perch to keep things interesting till the evening bite. Now I can't even catch a stinkin' perch.

went out last night to pulaski and caught only 1 little perch all night. at least we had the generator hooked up so we were able to watch TV and play cards while the fish weren't biting.

I was out last night in front of the court house. We caught 4 crappies 1 walleye and missed alot of bites. Went out this morning same four holes and pulled in 11 crappies around 10 inches each and once again missed a ton of fish. They are very finninky. the smaller the minnow the better. Waxies were a waste of time for us. We set up away from the crowd.

Went fishing tonight. I planned on spending a whole lot of time out there but I was called in to go bowling with the neighbors which was really fun. I was fishing from 4-5:30 and around 5:10 I got the only fish, a 16". I was marking a lot of them.

Caught it using a red Eye Dropper under a bobber with fathead.

went out to pulaski again. caught nothing. had the rattle reel go down below the ice once but then it came back up. its probably the cold front causing the fish to stop biting.

I had a similar experience this morning. Marked the fish, they just wouldn't commit. I was out there with my friend and he had similar results. The fish would come to the lure and just swim away. This weekend should be better with the warmer temps.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
