I kept 5 between 11-12 inches. The wind was blowing pretty good so I just drifted the lake and pickup a few every drift. Any where from 11 feet to 14 feet. The fish are usually scattered.Good luck and let me know how you did.

Well it was a b u t full day on the lake but that is all that I can say. We didn't have much luck 3 small crappies 2 sunnies 1 thern and had a few walleye bites. There were 7-10 other boats out 5 in the same area and we saw 3-4 crappies pulled in all morning. not alot of action!!! We left around noon.. used leeches, plastics, and minnows. all crappies caught on plastics, leeches got nibbled and bit off a few times and minnows not much action.... Jigged off the bottom used floats tried alot of presentations anywhere from 4-14 ft.

I was out there this evening and there was quit a crowd,craps seem to be hitting good from what I could see but I didn't have much luck as I stayed off to the side of the rest of the boats,one thing I would like to point out though is RESPECT as I didn't see a whole lot of it out,Guys arguing over fishing spots,boats pulling in on others tangling lines,now tell me is a few fish that important?let's have some courtesy for others as it's a time to enjoy ourselves!I'm new to the area and tonight was my first time on Ann.Is it like that alot out there?

I think it is like that in that area Knife/Ann/Fish. Typical selfish people who think that it is their fish and their lake. Nothing makes me as angry as those people. It goes both ways too. Some people don't want you within 100 yards of their boat and other people will work their way in to the middle of a group of boats.

On Saturday morning 5 boats cruised in and out of each other but everybody seemed friendly. We talked as other boats trolled by and they all gave pointers or updates as to what they caught or what they were fishing for.....but the fish were not biting hard either........I will leave that lake alone till winter then give it a shot again.........Good Luck and have fun!!!!

I shouldn't over generalize. But the few bad apples really make it so unpleasant.

Ive had people setup their fish house within 10 feet of where I was fishing. Dont let anyone see or know if you're catching fish on that lake.

Good luck in the winter I fished the lake many times and never did very well maybe we could get together and fish. I usually fish by myself because I work most weekends. Shoot me a email and I'll tell you the type of plastics I use. The time I was on the lake there where alot of boats and no problems with the boats Good luck everybody

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things.

      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
