I've fished the Thief River north of 8th Street twice this year and picked up a few pike by the sandbar. The last 3 times fishing in TRF, I've gone up the Red Lake River to the little bay behind the mansion. A few nice 23-28" Eyes have been caught there, just not by me. I typically fish the evening from 4pm til just after dark. Was down tonight and picked up 2 eaters around 5pm in 9 fow at the edge of the current...jiggin' jiggin' jiggin'

I haven't been fishing the river too much this year. I fished on Saturday between the 1st & 3rd street bridges for a couple of hours. 1st spot "Nothing" (15' of water, muddy bottom). 2nd spot and final move of the day...IT WAS TOO COLD!!!! I fished a small rock pile and got into some Rock Bass, I know, I know...Rock Bass aren't Walleye, but hey I was having fun catching fish. Small baits, held still just on top of the rocks produced steady action. The fish were biting really light though, so electronics were very helpful.

That's my report...Good Luck.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
