Rick,
I was approached by a Voyageurs National Park enforcement ranger who said when visiting this site he notes there are frequent questions regarding rules or regs in the Park that he would be happy to answer.

He wondered if there is a way this site could link to VNP, or if you would be looking for a moderator regarding Voyageurs National Park as it relates to Kabetogama, Namakan, Sand Point, Rainy Lake, the inland lakes and camping there within..
Thanks guts < ))))))><

Guts,

I think that is a great idea too.

Checked out your post about the tipup fishing on Moose Bay, keep talking like that and I'll be up there before you know it.

What else do you hear about Pike fishing on Kab., never know, might be passing thru next month.

Has your snow conditions changed, supposed to storm tonite the way is sounds.

Later,
Mike

Mike, the storm has not materialized yet, we did get a trace of snow, but its blowing good, and they suggest we may get some snow later today or later in the week.

Pike fishing on Kab is not real solid, anglers fishing for walleyes/saugers are getting Pike action, otherwise Kab/Nam or Namakan is now the best and will probably remain so throughout the season. A nice fact is Northern Pike is a continious season in Namakan, if the ice holds out its a nice option for late season/early season fishing.
Bring on the snow, guts, <{{{{{{><

guts,
I know you posed this to Rick, but as some one who boatcamps in VNP fairly regularily (@ 23 3-5 day trips on Kab/Nam the last 7 years) I think it would be great to have a park ranger help out. I am planning on a couple of 4 day trips into the east end of Rainy this year, new territory for me. Having another link to info would be great.
Just wanted to also say thanks for all that you post here, helps alot of guys out smile.gif

RICK,
I'll try to make contact with him this week and have him e-mail you with details or etc.
It could add a new demension to the page when people have National Park questions, knowing that the question is being answered by an authority rather than heresay.
Thanks Rick

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH

      Anybody know if there is a pressure ridge/ice heave out in front of the Warroad Access? I know ice conditions will change throughout the coming weeks. Looking forward to getting after some pike.  The last few years there has been a pressure ridge there, last year it went from Springsteel over to Swift. And we've been up there plenty of times when there hasn't been one at all. Just curious to find out what conditions are like in that bay. Thanks!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.
