Deer opener (fishing that is!)

Went out on Big Sand today and even though the water is on the verge of freezing, the smallies were still pretty active. We caught 7 between 17 and 19 3/4 and lost another three. The were actively feeding and had HUGE bellies, but they definitely didn't fight like the smallies of summer. They didn't make any runs and would just shake their heads until they came to the surface and then would give up.

Anyone else get out fishing over the hunting weekend?

One other boat when we got there, one other when we left. I'm hoping tomorrow will be an open water day to fish as well. Would you mind doggy paddling around the lake through the night so it's open when I get there in the morning?

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
