Fished a ton over the last weekend and 4 guys managed 3 little walleyes and a few crappies and perch. Overall the fishing was slow. Rock bass and tulibees were fun to catch.

I fished over the weekend and did very well. We caught several perch and some crappies. The crappies were on the smaller side 10 inch range, we threw them back. We did manage to catch one 13 incher. It seems the fish bit well from 10am - 12pm, good luck.

Beerfish, Where were you guys getting the tullies. Ran out fish for smoking. Were they biting good enough to make a run just for them??

Funny you ask loadmaster....We got tullies all over the main basin from 16ft to 35ft. We thought it was strange getting them in 16ft of water but whatever. They seemed to be eating mayfly larvea that is coming up off the bottom. We had four guys and we fished all day and we got maybe 20 fish total including some small ones but we did get a couple huge ones. We werent fishing for them either. So I think you could do better than that. I don[t think they were any whitefish that we got but I can barely tell the difference. I dont fish them enough to know. Hope that helps.

Optimax, you aren't who I think you are, BARRRRR! I am ready to go pretty much any weekend. One weekend a month I have school, but any other weekend works! We should plan a weekend this march, it seems to get really good as the snow is melting off the ice, a guy can catch some nice hogs!

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
