Every year, same area. If you are venturing down near Hunters Point on the south end of Gull, be careful. Clarence told me last night that someone from St. Cloud put one through and he was trying to figure out how to get it out.

Be safe,

Just curious, but if it happens in the same spot every year, why doesn't the sheriff put up some signs in that area like they do for lakes with aerators?

The problem area isn't hidden. It is all heaved up along the mouth of the bay. It is the same every year. The truck that went down was off track and ended up with the front end on the bottom of the channel. Sounds like Clarence is trying to figure out how to get cables to it to pull it out. I think it is more about just respecting the ice. It is unfortunate but we all need to use caution out there.

Tippman,

People are driving out of Ernies...mainly to the first break. Where I fish the was a truck 200 feet away, he came over and asked me how things were going. I asked him how much ice was over there, he said 15 inches, and I told him to look in our holes, to his surpise we were on 8-9 inches. I'm still taken my sled. this was 1-12-08

Oh. Man, people were driving that last weekend. I have always heard that spot is iffy. I'm still running the sled back and forth. Wilson Bay has always been great and I have always wanted to go in there but ice freaks me out....

Thanks Dan.

Is that spot safe to traverse by snow machine/atv?

I learned about Hunters Point the hard way, and I'm definitely not the only one. I wouldn't mind seeing a thin ice sign placed there, since it's a trouble spot every single year. Darwin has had enough fun with that spot. I'm sure Clarence doesn't mind the business though.

      Rebuilding the shoreline.

      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.

      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!
