Gervais hasn't been a topic for awhile. Others have been out there once or twice though.

G-man, glad to see you are still out there and hit the forum. We still need to hit some open water together before the hard water season is upon us.

I would like to hit our ice fishing lake for some open water pannies, pike, and bass one of these nice fall days.

With fall upon us many of the anglers start getting in hunting mode and fall bite can be fantastic.

Hey Mr Pike. I've been to one of the ice fishing lakes last weekend for the first time out in several weeks and did very well on numbers...only a few decent size. Give me a shout sometime soon!

Mykal, glad to hear from you !!!!!! I can not believe the summer is almost over and we have spent limited time on the water together.

I hope you have all your spots marked on Mille acs to get old man pike on the lake for some fall pigs pulling the cranks.

Hey Andy is getting married. The wedding is next weekend. He and his wife to be bought a nice place just outside of St. Cloud. He now has all the space he needs for all his fishin and hunting toys. One really neat feature at there new place is a gazebo that is built into the deck. It is fully wired for watching a game or playing poker.

I have been fishing a lot more local this year then in years past with a few trips to the cabin and few weekends on mississippi chasing smallies.

Andy also has discovered this great little walleye lake for ice fishing a little North of St. Cloud for ice fishing. There is one piece of sturture in the middle of the lake and the eyes come up at dusk and attack.

Anyway we need to hook up my friend and catch up. I assume you have been hitting Mille acs quite a bit and getting close to guide status on the mud and sand smile.gif

I hit the lake the other night from 330-930 targeting muskies most the night and never even saw a fish. Before calling it I took a couple trolling passes and picked up a little walleye.

I'm still around. My wife is almost ready to pop. Any time now.

I got out this weekend with my father. He came up and visited for the weekend and brought his boat. We hit Minnewashta twice. Did alright, mainly around the rockpile. Caught a nice variety. Nothing huge.

I'd second the 'we still need to get out together'.

Mykal- I still got checking out your boat on Mille for fall walleyes in the mind. I just hope I can make it work.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
