MG - Fishin'

The lake has a lot of water on top as of yesterday afternoon. What I can tell you is that the teenage kids that just got their license are out in full affect on the ice. There was some Yahoo's on the couthouse side that decided it would be fun to whip shi**ies on the ice in his Ford Taurus. So fishing must've been slow for them since they were obviously not doing a whole lot of fishing. This is good to see when the rest of us want to fish and are there for that reason about the time of year when we're trying to concentrate on the shallower water too! Then his buddy driving Mom's PT Cruiser came out and also thought we were in Brainerd at B.I.R. This is not the time of year (there isn't a good time in my opinion) to be flying around on the ice and being an idiot about it. I'll take any over/under anyone wants on how soon someone's vehicle goes swimming out there. I'm going within the next week for Buffalo if not this weekend. I just might have to go out there this weekend with my gear, a 12 pack, and a life jacket to throw at 'em and ask if that water is cold still. Then give them a little talk afterwards that their parents obviously didn't have with them. Watch out if you go and good luck!

yeah me and a neighbor were out there last night to. those kids where probally 60 yards away from us. we ended up leaving with 12 crappies all about 9-10.5" the normal 45 min window caught bigger crappies in 10' suspended in about 20' of water. might be the last trip out in a vehicle.thanks for the reply.

I was out there on saturday 4:30-8. The ice wasn't bad. There was a lot of breaking thru ice bubbles that were about 3-4 inches deep because there was water on the ice from the snow melt. The Ice was thick and in good condition. I tried to drill thru one spot that was so thick that only the center point of the auger went thru. It hasn't gotten any thinner yet and it was good and solid.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      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!
