I was out at Prescott and around 8 AM I lost 2 fish and had several followers. In the afternoon I had 1 fish follow up about 3 feet, no other bites or fish marked. I will be back out there on Sunday morning.

Say guys how many vehicles have been down there lately? Are anglers consistantly hitting that area, or has it been quite?

Ok I was down in the Prescott area on Monday and I marked some fish but didn't catch anything but had a few bites. My son said he saw a walleye swim through his hole when testing his jiggin action. This seemed bizarre to me since it was just under the ice? Do walleyes do that or did he see some other type of fish.

What I'm wondering is if the Prescott area is mainly a walleye spot or is there crappies in the area as well.

Another question I have is most of my ice fishing is for panfish and I try to keep moving around to find them. I'm new to the river and ice fishing for walleyes and I was wondering if I should keep moving around or stay in one area? If to stay how long should I wait it out before considering moving?

I don't have a wheeler or snowmobile so I was wondering how far up the river does it make sense going up driving a full size truck to just get away from the community holes? Or am I better off walking?

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.

    • Thanks Don! its a good time of year to be on the water!! :)

      Oh man, I forgot about the South Switch. I haven't been there in close to fifteen years. I doubt that it's changed.....maybe I'll head there tomorrow night!

    • Not lately but a buddy got 3 in big fork yesterday... No dog just him walking

      Anyone been out lately? I normally wait until the leaves start dropping but am getting the itch to get out pretty bad.

      Prices a little high there too....   Come on down to the switch or the crescent.  

      Didn't Bayview try the upscale dining thing a few years ago?

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.
