As far as I know, people are going both dirrections and having luck... get away from the crowds and get to a fresh area and they are finding fish, and many of them. The last spot I was at I was seeing several hundred fish a day, Cats, Sheeep head and walleyes and pike. I still can not get the cats to bite thought or the sheep head. My goal is to find out what stimulates these cats to eat under the ice.

In town, there's public access in Central Park behind the library just off Hwy 2. Just zero in on the old Cathedral spires.

So what do you use (bait/lure) to get these river eyes?

yeah,

move away from the crowds. There are a few good spots upstream from the park. Usually catch them from 5pm-8pm on red glow jigs, or blue in 8-10 feet of water. watch for slush spots on the ice.

I like flash lures, with a tail hooked minnow.

Up-stream from the park, there a a number of rather straight sections of river that are real shallow and not worth driling holes. I own a bit of land on the river east of town on a straight section of about 200 yards. 3 feet of ice and one foot of water on Sunday. frown.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
