6 posts in this topic

I know you can't predict what the weather is like but in general is there good sking conditions around the 20th of March? I haven't been sking for 3 or 4 years and wanted to try again when my son is off for Easter vacation.

Thnaks,

Chaff

The snow up in the Lutsen area is great right now, and should stay that way for a long time.We have a place on Caribou Lake and measured 18 inches of fresh snow while we were up there this past weekend.

Where on caribou. I have a cabin out of Grand Marais and love fishing carabou. I've been looking for an access to get to the back part of the lake in the winter, so that I don't have go all around the pennisula.

reelemin, its straight across from the access in the bay. Usually we have a snowmobile or wheeler so I cannot give you an easy way to the big side of the lake.

As for fishing, we fished hard for 3 days in various places and found them in 24 ft of water on the big side. Walleyes and perch mostly with a few bass a pike. I measured 14-17 inches of ice with the top 4-6 inches being frozen slush.We did notice that after all the snow there were some new slush areas starting so I hope it doesnt get too bad.

How often do you make it up in the winter? If you are up there often we should meet up and hit the ice some weekend we are both in the area. Unfortunately I wont be able to make it up anymore until the first week of February

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
