How were the fish biting on blue lake? I went up to cross lake in pine city. We caught plenty of crappies but size wasn't great. Which is unusual for up there. Went home with fish though.

I cut over 200 holes on blue yesterday and only caught some tiny crappies and perch. I fished lots of areas from 5 feet 24 feet of water. I fished for 6 hours with only two keeper sized fish caught. I was marking fish but they would not bite. I tried all my plastics and every color, wax worms, and euros. I up sized and down sized. That is three trips with the same results. Sorry guys the get together might be more bsing then catching this year.

I had the same experience on a small lake in Wright county yesterday. The barometer was all over the place yesterday. Tough bite.

Moose, you always seem to put in the most effort to get fish located for GTGs.  I wouldn’t count you out yet.

Been out the  last few nights, on local lakes. George, Linwood, Martin and Green. Pretty sad - to say the least. Had fun with this Bass, but that was about all the action I had. Froze my butt, on Green the other night- propane tank on Buddy Heater kept freezing up. Caught 2 small perch before I gave up. May go out this afternoon- but will be taking wheeler !! By the way Mr. Bass was happy to get back in the water.:)IMG_20180129_164033050_BURST000_COVER.thumb.jpg.0213ed245169188df5fcadbaa55b7536.jpgIMG_20180129_164305252.thumb.jpg.3380e1994890d5dd7a13dca8b02b46f0.jpg

Spent an evening on Long Lake ( off of 47 ) . Seems like the fishing pressure the last few years have caught up with the lake. First thing I noticed is that there weren't many houses or people fishing. Nice right ? Well there was a reason. I ended up catching a few small perch and two very small crappies. Although it may just be me !!!:(

Well - Sometimes the fish are biting close to home, so I ended up on George. Better than the night before, some perch & very small crappies but nothing to take a picture of , and still no meal of fresh fish. Looks like the week ahead has some nice weather forecast, should be nice fishing.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been really good this past week with good numbers of slot fish and a 30” walleye. We have been on the move with our houses and it is paying off.  Multiple houses producing an all day sauger bite with plenty of walleye mixed in. 20-24 feet is where we have found the most action. Glow and white/gold spoons have been the prefered color as of late. 

      Our snowmobile and marked trails are in great condition.  Thirty inches of ice is common with 24 in higher current areas.

      Up in Canada, limits of crappies are still being had in 30’ and deeper water.  Ultra light tackle and rod set up can make the difference some days, while other days crappies can be caught on Rip’n Raps and Jigging spoons.  Walleye action remains strong on reefs and points in 24-28 feet. 

      We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      In Minnesota, limits of walleye and sauger are being caught between 22 and 25 feet. Presentation changes daily from deadstick to jigging but not both. Pink and white, or gold and chartreuse have had many slot fish and lost a few BIG ones.

      The Canadian side of the lake has seen a lot of northern action, with the biggest closing in on 48.” Walleye are still plentiful off of reefs and points. Crappie action has been sporatic with the changing weather fronts. 

      We hope to see you soon!

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota walleye continue to be caught in 18-21 feet at the bottom of shoreline breaks.  Rattle baits and jigging spoons call fish to the holes, while a plain hook and minnow seals the deal. Perch and sauger are consistently found between 25 and 28 feet, walleye can be found there too for a good mid-day bite. The hottest bite this week was within an hour of sundown. 
       
      Up in Canada, walleye fishing remains relatively easy, get yourself to a spot that looks like walleye structure and start reeling them in!
      Canadian crappies are still filling freezers at 28-32 feet, with small UV colored rip’n raps or a small jig and plastic.  Depth finders have proven to be a necessity with finding a pattern in the fish, whether it be rising or falling jigging action.  

      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge

      Hello from the NW Angle!
      Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.”
      Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action.
      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      The bite remains consistent on the Minnesota side where we are fishing between 26 and 28 feet, yielding good walleye, sauger and jumbo perch. The dead stick will provide action early and throughout the day. Shallower depths are worth fishing early and late for quality walleye, a majority of which are in the slot.

      Up in Canada, big crappies are filling buckets via minnows, plastics and rip’n raps as well as, very light setups in 28-32 feet. Walleye fishing is outstanding near structure, either points or reefs. jig’n raps, buck shots or spoons have been productive.

      See you soon!

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      We have had another strong week of Walleye and Sauger fishing up in the Northwest Angle with fish being caught all throughout the day! Fish in the 24-30” class were common with pails full of Walleye over 16” coming in as well. The best approach methods have varied through out the day, from a dead stick to an actively jigged buckshot or rip’n rap. Glow red, gold and any UV colors are preferred just off structure at the bottom of the break lines between 24 and 30ft. Many football sized giant perch  were seen this week, too.

      On the Ontario side, Walleye have been active all day long. Certain reefs have been giving up fish consistently to anything that is actively presented.  Crappie fishing has been best early and late in the day with 14” fish common in 28’  or deeper.

      See you soon!

      Happy New Year from the NW Angle!
      On the Minnesota side, we are fishing walleyes in 22-28 feet. Success has been had on slender spoons, Rip’n raps and rattle baits near structure and break lines. Saugers and Perch have been more consistent in water deeper than 26’ using the same baits. This past week with the cold weather dead sticks were producing in the afternoon. We have houses placed in typical spots for the season; from the north side of Oak all the way to Shady with ice depth as thick as 2 feet. Stay to marked trails as there is a small amount of rough ice. Our biggest walleye of the week was pushing 30” with many more in the slot. 
      Crappies coming out of Canada are huge as usual, with many at or above 14 inches being caught out of 30 feet of water. Walleye and Perch can still be had off of any rock point using UV rip’n raps or a dead minnow. 
      We hope to see you soon!

      Last Thursday I got out in the Metro for a few hours with a buddy. We went out in the afternoon about 2 hours before Sunset and stayed for a few hours after it got dark. With the Sun up we punched a lot of holes, camera'd them and were able to find some thick weeds holding some good sized Sunfish. We fished those for a little bit and then pulled our shacks out a mile to a major piece of lake structure only to find that it was holding ZERO fish. On the way back to our launch point we stopped to check out a deep hole and found the larger Crappies to be roaming the edges suspended in the upper half of the water column. Big tungsten jigs with large plastics seemed to trigger their interest and get them to bite.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
