No rain at all last night and the wind switched to the N NW and calmed so it was a beautiful night. We struggled with only one 20.5 from 7pm until 11:30pm and then found fish trolling on a very specific spot on the rocks until 1:00 when we left. Ended up missing a few but pulled in 5 fish between 20.5 and 23 including a 34 inch Pike thrown in for fun. Spent alot of dead hours trolling NW weedlines to no avail. The baitfish are starting to bunch up in spots so it won't be long. Saw part of a very cool Northern light show once the skies cleared. Very cool.

i wanted to go so bad yesterday but the person i was going with was new to night trolling and hasnt had much experience fishing. he is also very prone to getting seasick. i just couldnt take him up there with the reports showing rain and wind. i should of just went but i didnt think it would be much fun by myself in the wind and rain either. if i would of had a hardcore partner too, that would of made the difference. its so exciting because we're so close to some of the best walleye fishing of the year.

We put up with the rain near isle bay all day saturday. Two boats 5 guys, one little bitty eye. The perching was great, average 11 inches if you sort a bit. Limits all around. We tried jigging/lindy rigging for two or three hours to no avail. Trolled shad raps for 2 hours until the waves got too big for my comfort. I talked to no less than 15 boatsmen at the isle landing while waiting to yank out, not one walleye going home, 4 caught in the slot. Easy day for perchers tough day for walleye guys. We had heard some sketchy reports of big crappies being caught off the 25-30ft break outside isle bay, but saw no evidence of this.

Good luck and tight lines

Hey Mykal, I think it was you we met at the gas station in Zimmerman on sat. night. We sure got lucky with the weather and northern lights. Same story on the fishing for us. We had one fish on while fishing the weeds. We moved to the point and picked up two fish on rock and weed transition and then went to the rocks at Myr Mar and picked up two fish. The biggest was 24" and the smallest was 18".

Nice meeting you and your friend and I'm sure we'll see you up there a few more times in the fall.

I'd love to go this weekend, but have to check what's happening on the homefront. I'm with you in that the fish have to be close to turning on and that its going to be a great fall. The boat launch and access worked pretty well, didn't it?

Went out Saturday out of Hunter's Point. First time I've ever fished the East Side of the lake. No way we we're going to be able to fish the West side and enjoy ourselves. Got stuck in the sand because I got to far over to the left heading out of the launch. This was before I got past the rocks. Once I got myself pushed free I followed another boat out and it was fine.

We saw a few walleyes boated on the reef we tried to do some slip bobber fishing on. My partner and I just caught one small perch.

Set up to troll before dark off of the sand at Hunter's Point. Caught 2 fish, and lost 2. One of the fish was a big one but I had the drag set to tight. We only fished until ten o'clock though so overall it seemed pretty good for us. Firetiger seemed to be working for us and for one boat around us.

My temp reading was 56.4

I couldn't say whether it was better shallow or deeper. We did mark a lot of fish around 12 to 13 fish but didn't pick up anything out that deep ourselves.

Whent out on the Twin Pines launch on the 23 with calm winds and clearing skys. It seemed to be a pretty average night but one guy up in the front of the boat caught a beautiful 30 incher. Me and my old man ended up with 4 keeper walleye(19,17.5,16,15.5) and one 12 inch perch. The trip was kinda my B-Day celebration and what made my whole trip worth is when I got two of my biggest walleyes. The fist was a 25 and the other just short of 27.Really nice.

First trip ever to Mille Lacs on Sunday. Paid for the launch at Wakun (Walleye Dundee's (?)). The park launch next door looked a little deeper, if you didn't need a dock. Fished the bouys around Twin and later Spider Islands. Two solid bites on leech and minnow on the first cast by both my wife and I. Nothing for the remaining 6 hours. Found the rock shallows near the park fishing pier. Made loud noises in the boat. No damage. Found that the dog CAN get seasick in the rollers when the wind came up late in the afternoon. Finally used up some bait on small perch around sunset.

Observing the many boats scattered around, and there was no net action all day. Was overall a nice day to be boating, but nothing to talk about for fishing.

      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.
