Recommended Posts


We're back. We had a great trip! We split time between walleyes, bass, and sklunges. Smallie fishing was ok, couldn't find any biggies, but found enough to keep us satisfied. Walleye fishing was great. The most serious walleye guy on the trip kept track of the number of walleyes on the trip he put in his boat and it was somewhere over 200 with the biggest being 26.5. Muskie fishing was really good. We saw five fish on Friday evening catching one (34"). Sun we saw six fish and caught one (35"). We also had two others hooked that threw the lure. <BR>Sat was magical!!! After a slow morning we saw nine fish in the afternoon. Three hit, but we couldn't land any of the buggers. In the evening we landed three (43", 41", & 30"), had four on and lost 'em, and saw half a dozen others. Twice we nearly had a double (I've never heard of a muskie double). We got on one cabbage bed and found six very active fish on it. The bed was about half the size of a football field, so they were in there elbow to elbow! It was like a pack of wolves working an area- very cool. All in all, it was a great trip!<P>------------------<BR>Scoot<P>RodsbyEngel: custom made fishing rods

Man. . .I should have been there. Glad you guys had a good trip. Talked to your brother this morning and he was pretty fired up as well. We fished Big D on Friday and Leech on Sunday for skies. See the Muskies forum under the photos page to see the 45 incher my buddy caught. Will you have any photos to put up from your weekend, Scoot?<P>MJ

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
