eyes, i went out ftiday by the high lines. Fished crappies from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm. Finally, they put on the feed-bag. Caught and released about 30 fish. Most were small, however, 6 were in the 12" range. Will be out there early tomorrow and give it another try. Good luck

Was out on Friday all day. Caught 5 eyes in the morning, all shorts. Fished with some of the guys on here during the day and watched them pull in some nice crappies. Stayed out till dark and caught one 19 inch eye and a mud puppy.

Auggie, was wondering how you did Friday night. Me and J. got skunked just up river from you. We had one nice strike, other than that didn't mark much.

I fished the same break yesterday morning, got one dink walleye. Fished for crappie from 8am-3pm, wasn't marking much anywhere. Went through a tank of gas trying to find fish. Got two 16" sauger, a really nice Mooneye, a little smallie and a few perch throughout the day (rule seemed to be one fish for every dozen holes.) Wound up near where we fished Friday, just out a little deeper. Finally got into some crappie around 1:30, pulled out 5 that were nice and a few dinks before I had to get home.

They were biting really light, would barely even move the tip of a noodle rod...

Will be going out this weekend...this question has probably been asked a million times already, but, is the ice safe enough to drive from the MN side to WI or vice versa in the bayport area?

I'll be out tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. most likely in the same area as usual. Stop by and say hello.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
