The limit for this winter will continue to be 2-walleye. Next summer if we are not close to quota of walleye like this year they have the option to raise the limit to 4-fish on July 1st. They had a good presentation with lots of discussion and they will continue to be cautious until they see how things go for a few years.

Did they mention how close the lake is to the quota this year? Does the DNR have any prediction how much pressure the lake will recieve this winter?

Are you sure its pounds, or fish? I work with a young guy whos family belongs to the tribe. He claims "his father and uncle have 2 gill nets out most of the summer. So far they have caught over 100 walleyes just this month."

It is my understanding that the Red Lake band members are not supposed to use any gill nets. Only hook and line with a slot limit.

      Just curious about these two landings...Heading out for pike next weekend. Any "sketchy" spots or ice ridges I need to worry about this year? I normally go out of the warroad landing and head east down the shore a little ways. Thanks

      No compression and if it is leaking fuel out of the exhaust, then it is a valve problem, fix-able, but at what cost when compared to a new one or find a used unit.

      Hello everyone last year at he end of ice season I got a clam auger plate. The one you install in place of drill chuck. I didn't have time to use it last season. This past Christmas I got a Milwaukee fuel drill and it doesn't fit. The threads for the chuck are bigger then the adapter clam includes. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

      With ice as thick as 24-30 inches and long range forecast for freezing temps, ice fishing season through March in good shape. Roads have smoothed out from the warmer weather and now freezing again.  Some snow still remains on the lake. A very active bite continues with many good sized walleyes and saugers.  Working every fish with electronics is helpful.  Some walleyes are suspended. The anglers working a jigging line with jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/ early afternoon and 17-24 before nightfall.  Best colors glow pink/red or chartreuse.    The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been spotty at times. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. The river is open from Birchdale to the east. Only some shore ice remains and some reports say anglers have already started pushing boats over the ice.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side,  walleyes are being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits.  In Ontario the crappie bite has been hot and cold as of last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.
