Is there any eye action on the river as of late?

Not much going on the river right now. The lake is starting to give up some crappies near the clay banks. There have been some big walleyes caught lately. The bite isn't fast and furious but they are getting some.

The 'eye bite is still slow huh? Spent the last couple weekends out there and got 2 total... Hoping to have the bite warm a little as we end out the season... Are the crappies coming thru at nite or are people picking them up throughout the day? We saw a couple schools of 3 during the day that wouldnt even look at our minnows... :-/

Was out on LQP this past weekend both days from 10:00am till 7:00pm with not much to show for it. Moved around alot from Ingrebretsons south to the eagle nest. Only caught 3 striped bass. Water was like green peas soup. Seemed like most people didn't show up until after 5:00 but couldn't stay for the night bite. crazy.gif

I'm headed out this weekend hoping to snag a few crappies.

What has recent snow done? Hoping to drive to Engebrettsons at least and maybe on the lake or south of the landing?

thanks for any info!

well, I found out why there wasn't any posts!

No body driving south of Ingebrettson's on shore.

Looked like I maybe could have made on the road but stuck in the middle of no where seemed like a poor option

If the water levels remains too high and low levels are flooded, I won't be able to get to the Marsh dam.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
