glenn57, portage is between Winni and Leech. Decent sized lake with Portage river flowing into Portage Bay on Leech. Mn DNR lake map shows promising numbers but where to start? ole

That was our exact thought. I am heading up there with the pig next weekend. This weekend I do believe he is up in that area fishing Winnie.

I'm guessing he meant Portage that is in between Bowstring and Sand being he mentioned Bowstring, but not positive. I was on Bowstring Friday and we had four crappies between six of us. We went off the west access and buried our four wheelers in slush pulling trailers. Did manage to get through it but it was a little rough going. The north end looked better and there was one truck out on that end. Marked very few fish where we were. Good luck!!

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
