chris63> The resort I fish out of provides all the fathead minnows we can go through. I always stop at Log Cabin bait and pick up shiners as well. Some days the fats outfish the shiners and vice versa, I just want to have both options available to me. Good luck and hang on Bill

For me it is river shiners as our choice, however, we also bring an assortment and see what works. I did get a 28" walleye on a small crappie minnow.

I'm from South Dakota, and I'm bringing up some night crawlers next weekend. I'll let you know how that goes.

Get some of each. Fatheads, shiners, & rosies (if you can find em). You never know what they want that day.

Don't stop 5 bucks short of a good fishin' trip!

Chubs were the minnow of desire for the fish this weekend out of long point. I think this time of year towards spring they like a minnow with a little more meat an scent, i dont know, its what ever they want at the time they want to bite. Today i caught to nice eye's back to back with a chub, then grabed a shinner an nothing till I put on a chub an then bamm, Kowalleski. boar

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
