Couple Vids....

I've been having a little fun with some eater size fish the last few days. Moving a lure slowly just off the bottom and getting that "bink" as the fish grabs is great!...Just like a little electrical shock coming up your rod and into your fingers. I'll never get enough grin.gif

Upstream or downstream of Belle Plaine? wink.gif

I was out Fri and Sat and found a bunch of hungry sauger and eyes.

Tried down by Shakopee this morning and caught just about everything but a golden one.

31" channel sure is fun on walleye gear though wink.gif

I do like that rock! Went down there again yesterday...a little windy but they were hungry. I wish I could have made it tonight but it wasn't to be. Now its gonna be "beat the clock" after work from now on. There's been some action near the bridge in Le Sueur too and I get off at 3 o'clock (hopefully)

Some more teasers Jim grin.gif.....

Jim, If I remember right, last time we took a walk I (Did) suck! You outfished me three to one easy!.... Course that was trout and smallmouth. Neither one of us got that really big brown that took a look at both our lures for just a second then disappeared back into the dark water. I can still see that fish coming out to take a look......Next year for sure!.

Hey Bumble we're not far apart grin.gif

Well I've been out the last two afternoons...with not even a bite!! Tried three different spots including the "rock". Can I blame the barometer? I'm sure things will get back into shape but in the meantime........

I got the chance to go perch on my rock this afternoon. Fished for about an hour before it got dark. Got two more nice saugers, one little wally and missed three or four. The bait is still there but the fish aren't feeding like they were (at that spot anyway) Took a little trip last week with da Fishhead and we did real well out of the boat.

I don't think we'll get much more casting weather now

Dude, this is fun video! You catch around Belle Plaine? (Bad luck, I'm thinking, for that little walleye, as the sauger swims away.)

Hi Larry! Unreal 1 is way cool. Unreal 2 is OK...I beat them both (without cheats) Playing your buddies online is hilarious. On UT 04, enter DARK30 in your "buddies" area and you can follow me to any server I'm on. Rob is "buzzbomb". I'll be on tonight off and on. You can e-mail me (in profile) and we can hook up.

Lock n Load!!

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • JBMasterAngler
      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.
    • Jarrid Houston
      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH
