Anyone headed up this weekend. I'm planning to make my weekly saturday night run. I'm hoping it won't be my last. Did anyone get a water temp. the last couple of nights. My guess is it may be back up to 40 degrees.

A guy I fish with a lot up there is going to fish tomorrow (Thursday) night, but kids and work are going to keep me at home. If I hear anything interesting I'll post it.

Nope we were all done at by 11pm. I was out the last 3 nights and have to work. This fishing wears on a guy.

As far as you guys looking for tips. We cought almost all our fish when the wind picked up and the moon was out from behind the clouds.

There have been nights when I get no fish. But by putting in your time and looking for new spots and not going where everyone else is pays off.

PieEyed - That may have been me. We were loading up about that time. Talked with someone there for a couple seconds. We had the 16' alumacraft behind the white suburban.

Amen to not catching any fish until the moon came out. We fished from 4:15 until 9:05 with one pike to show for it. Then caught 4 fish in 45 minutes. Then also found out that they only hit the bait as we traveled in one direction tongue.gif. So, we wasted a good 45 minutes before we wound up just trolling one way and then running back up and starting over. Throw that 45 minutes out and we caught 10 fish in about 3 hours. Still not great, but not bad. All ours came on clown or purple perch #10HJ's. Biggest was 27", next was 25.5". The 27" was our last fish. Hard to leave the water on that, but it was getting late and real windy.

Gerty, that was me. We were frying up our keepers at the access. It's something about eating Hot walleye in the cold, it's the best! Are you going this weekend at all?

I'm thinking of trying up by Malmo tonight? I haven't been up there this year yet, how's the access?

Anyone have another general area that they think would be worth trying?

Thanks

PieEyed - I thought that was a bag of shore lunch you had in your hands grin.gif. I should have stuck around!! I am chasing the elusive 30 pointer this weekend smile.gif. I think my fishing is done for the year except for maybe a trip to the river. Had to put a new water pump in my motor when I got back the other night. I am glad the water temp was cold to help keep her cool that night.

I have not launched by Malmo at all, so I can't help you there. Good luck if you go.

I winterized my boat Sun. Had water coming out for a while, then it stopped. Is it a big job to do??? Cost to get it done ???? (any idea??) I'll see what happens next Spring when I start it up.

Paul has mentioned on different posts that malmo was too shallow for his liking. Maybe Red Door or Barnacle Bills??

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites citizens to learn about proposed recreation opportunities in Centennial State Forest, a 3,394-acre state forest in Cass County donated to the DNR in 2013.  The meeting will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 26, in the Walker Community Center Rotary Room, 105 Tower Ave., Walker. Following a presentation at 6 p.m., there will be time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Minnesota state forests are classified into three groupings for off-highway vehicle (OHV) and motor vehicle use: In “managed” forests you may ride on all state forest roads, signed trails and non-designated routes that are not posted closed. In “limited” forests you may ride on all forest roads and trailed signed for specific motor vehicle use. “Closed” forests are open only to highway-licensed vehicles on forest roads. As part of the overall planning process, the DNR is proposing to classify Centennial State Forest as “limited.” The DNR is also proposing to designate approximately 11 miles of forest roads, to allow OHV and motor vehicle use on those roads. Comments received at the meeting will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Wednesday, July 26. For more information call: Tim Williamson, OHV acquisition and development specialist, Parks and Trails Division, 218-308-2369. Joel Lemberg, Backus Area forest supervisor, Forestry Division, 218-947-3232, ext. 223. For more information, visit the Centennial State Forest webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota United, a new professional soccer team nicknamed the Loons, has teamed up with the Department of Natural Resources to offer licensed hunters and anglers an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets to a home match Sunday, May 7, against Sporting Kansas City.  “We hear the call of the loon while we’re out on the water and exploring on land, and now it also means Major League Soccer,” said Jenifer Wical, the DNR’s Fish and Wildlife marketing coordinator. “If you have a fishing or hunting license now you can get this deal on tickets to a Minnesota United game.” This offer is made possible through a partnership between the DNR and Minnesota United. The discount is available for all price points at TCF Bank Stadium with tickets starting at $20. For information on purchasing tickets, visit the DNR-United page. For questions or orders of 10 tickets or more, call 763-476-2237 or email tickets@mnufc.com. The DNR and soccer team has also partnered on a season ticket offer that supports loon populations throughout the state by way of the Minnesota Loon Monitoring Program. The first 11,842 season ticket holders – one for every lake in Minnesota – have a portion of their season ticket support the DNR’s loon program, and all inaugural season ticket holder accounts will receive a complimentary Minnesota State Parks Day Pass. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Was out in DL area Saturday....still the same....prespawn staging 8-12 ft but did get some dandies late evening in front of an inlet pretty shallow 4-6ft and they were the most agressive Crappies I've caught this spring.  Mother Nature has dealt us another yo-yo spring up our way and that $uck$

        It's crazy people just have no respect what so ever for the environment or for other anglers.
