Two weeks my man. Give it two more weeks. Those fish that spawn on the points and feeder creek deltas in the lake will be putting the feed bag on shortly.

Thanks Tom.

It's one of my Dads favorite spots and since he's somewhat computer illiterate,I told him I'd put the question out.I knew I could count on you.

A neighbor went down to Lake City this morning to shorefish. The word is all small so far, but then its still early.

Years ago I fished just north of lake city. I believe it was one or two turns before you get into the city. I fished a little backwater area where the road crosses the backwater channel. There was alittle bridge there.

Say tons of northerns and several massive crappies. Just wondering when is the best time to hit that area again.

Hopefully someone knows where I am talking about. I might come down on Saturday to give it a shot. What is the regulations on what you can keep in that backwater area? Can you keep anything but panfish?

With the water levels decent now the backwaters should be firing up pretty quick. Along with the toothies and the crappies/sunfish, you can keep the waldos and sauger you catch year round, but I'm not certain on the bass as I do not fish them much.

Are there any good spots to try other than the spot I mentioned in my previous post? Do you know where i am talking about in that post? Any new reports?

This is my second time down to fish the backwater first being this winter down by wabasha, didn't catch much that time but am looking to improve on my luck.

I have not been to the backwaters of late, but some other sources with good repute are saying they are quiet in the Wabasha area. They should be heating up pretty quick.

Was on the the lake looking for smallies the other day and it was pretty slow. Caught 4 and that was it. Water temps were around 60 in the marinas.

Fished the Redwing dam area Saturday afternoon. The dam was open so the current was pretty wild. Boat control was out of the question. Probably should have spent more time away from there looking for current breaks in calmer waters. Oh, and it was windy. Really windy..

On the way, Pepin looked like a mad sea.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
