just a note. Increased ID's is to RE-ENTER the US. It is not a Canadian thing.

Hello to all, I'm heading up to stay with Stu March 18-21st. This will be my first time up there. We are very excited about the trip. We have plans to take an enclosed trailer with sleds and a couple of otter houses behind. Just wandering if anyone would like to help me out with different lures that I should have in the box and anything I should know before we head up there. Thanks and I appreciate any info that will help us first timers out.

Dock boy i would bring lots of jigging spoons in glow reds, glow white, glow pink, and gold will be some good colors. Also if you fish the river you will need some 1/2 -3/4 oz. The lake 1/4- 3/8 oz should be ok.

Well... it's Fri and I'm still at home. I've got a sick little boy and we had a pretty rough day and night. His fever is much better, but he's developed a cough that sounds like a barking seal and it's obviously really painful for him when he coughs. So, not sure if I'll be headed North or not. He'd have to make a pretty big turn around in the next 10 hours for me to feel good enough to take off. Bummer, but what do ya do? I hope all of you headed up there have a great trip and find some bigguns.

Isn't that the way it goes Scoot? We've had a similar sickness running through our place this week as well...

I hope he feels better soon! And even better, in 10 hours!

sorry to hear that Scoot. The crud has been going around. FWIW, I spent the last couple weeks taking care of my daughter and wife with the flu. My daughter had that nasty cough and high fever for almost two weeks. If your son has the same virus, look for a second wave. My daughter was sick for 3/4 days, got better for a day or two, then got sick again for another 4-5. It was miserable. Now of course I have a cough....

I'll think of you tomorrow while I'm trying to pull up a tullibee, hacking my lungs out.

Yep, the cruddy bugs are everywhere right now. Funny Dead, but I didn't read your post until now- wish I woulda seen it before I made the 4 1/2 hour drive North last night only to turn right around this morning when that 2nd wave set in. He seemed to be 100% better yesterday when I left for Stu's- dancing around, goofing off with Grandpa, etc. However, my parents were up all night with him, my dad got sicker than heck during the night (he wasn't feeling quite right when we showed up, so he can't blame me on that one), and my mom was really shot when I called this morning when I called to check in. Naive me, I expected to hear, "All is well... have fun fishing". She said I should just stay and fish, but I couldn't have had any peace of mind or enjoyed it one bit knowing I was ditching out on my sick little dude and sticking my parents with the task. Oh well, that's just how the ball bounces some times...

I feel a lot better now that I'm home and we've seen the Dr.- ear infection, pink eye, terrible cough. Definitely the right call for me to be home with him.

So... any and all fishing reports I give will be second hand info. I'm sure I'll get some pics and all the info I get will be accurate. I'll post what I hear on Tues or so.

Any recent reports boys. Headed North early tuesday morning for a couple of days. First timer. We are fishing the lake. How do you guys go about fishing the lake. I know thier is not much structure, so do you just head out thier and start moving around. 15-20 minutes in a spot and then move 100 yards. Thanks for the help and all other info is also appreciated. Take care and see you on the lake

I talked to my crew last night and they had a tough day yesterday. They had some equipment failures that cost them an hour or more in the morning. Then they found a tough bite throughout the day. They moved and worked hard, but didn't find a decent bite. 8 fish for 11 guys for our group. Sounds likea group a few hundred yards from one of their spots did a little better, but not great. Stu was out and it sounds like he struggled too. They'll be back out today and tomorrow and I'd guess they'll find fish at some point- they work too hard to not find some active fish. The fish are there too- reports have mostly been from decent to very good, depending on the day. Yesterday just wasn't their day though.

Scoot:

You did have Rman bring along the portable cd player and the ever popular Disco Fever cd. Should be able to jig them greenies right up while playing that.... \:\)

Hopefully Jr. is feeling better.

Well 3 of us just got back and the fishing wasnt the greatest but was ok. We ended up catching about 30 on fri, 15 on sat, and 30 or so on sunday. The biggest i caught was a 26 incher. Staying at Stus was great. We had a good time except for all the broken equipment from the rough ride on the lake. Most of the fish were 16-20 inches. If your heading up there dont forget the gold and red #6 chubby darter. We fished anywhere from 10-17 feet of water. I stopped over to visit with you Scoot but you were already gone.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54
      popped out from 730 till noon today and fun city. went to 3 different areas and did not see another person. gold with red, purple with white produced. Tried the chartreuse wishbone again and still a no go. someday maybe. 
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Awesome thanks Rick! I'll post a fishing report on how we do! 
    • Rick
      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Heading to faribault this weekend. Gonna try Fox and french lake again. Anyone been out there having any luck? Is the ice still drivable? Any information is much appreciated! Thanks again, tight lines all!!!

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2017 expire Wednesday, Feb. 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Licenses for 2018 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2018 fishing licenses become effective Thursday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2017 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. This year license fees increase by $3 for a resident individual angling license, and fees also increase for other license types including deer hunting licenses, sports licenses and lifetime licenses. License fees support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. “Thank you to all who purchase a license. License fees pay for the work we do and the dollars go directly toward improving fishing and hunting opportunities in Minnesota,” said Steve Michaels, DNR licensing program director. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. Customers are encouraged to update their customer record online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Adding an email, while not required, allows the DNR to send important hunting and fishing information, and gather input through surveys. More information about how the DNR spends license dollars can be found at mndnr.gov/LicenseDollarsAtWork. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
