Make the trip up sometimes once a year and have always gone out of adrians. Have used only plowed road access, never rented. They have been good to me. Will be bringing my son, first trip with the "boys", so need to do my prep work for him. always gone past pine and found the fishing to be o.k. Maybe looking to mix it up this year with shallow early/late etc. Just seems like not as much structure over that way. Have fished Arnesons once, so been that way. Just looking for a one time hit for the kid. Long Pt, Morris, Arnesons or Adrians info would be great. I'll be bringing my perm, 350 mile 1 way. Also, should be in the area around 10:00pm, can I get on the lake. Someone please take me under their wings. \:o

You should have a great LOW adventure, I have friends that show

up in the middle of the night to set up permanent houses. It

would make me nervous but they seem to get it done.

There is no real need to pass by Pine Island, the road is fine

for big trucks and permanent houses. The bite has been real

good in the deep water (34 foot). It at 2 pm if you still need

fish, pull everything in to 12 feet of water (there should be

paths) and fish till dark. You can spend the night in shallow

and catch the morning bite shallow and move out deep again at

10 am.

Fishing is pretty good

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
