A STRONG AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND THEN SLOWLY LIFT NORTHEAST INTO SOUTHEAST IOWA BY SUNDAY MORNING...

I get to fish on Friday... will be interesting to see what happens...

One thing nice about being local... If I don't like the way the day is going... I just go home... no big deal.

I can relate though... nothing worse then planning a trip (like I do for muskies on soft water) and seeing a good old cold front showing up right on the money... If you think a cold front walleye is tough to catch... Try to get a muskie to open up on a cold front....Tougher then trying to get a hotspot from Fisky anymore... grin.gif

Well will see what happens, we are going to fish red on the way up on Friday, but what ever happens it's just fun getting away for the weekend but. We normally have a little to much fun, Monday will be a long day.

Thanks for the advice and replys.

Lip RIPPER!

WT, that was good. He hasn't given much out for secret spots anymore. Maybe he quit fishing?

Quit fishing? Me, never! Maybe when I quit breathing!

I tend to slack off a bit in February but I've been out a few times over the past couple weeks. Twice to URL.....Fun, Fun. Twice out on 5mile....so-so. Couple days ago out from Rocky area....Darn good. Last weekend way North to the "wifes hole" waypoint.....Slow and crowded! Yikes, there's a bigger pack way out there then there is on some of the Muskeg spots!

Wanted to go today but buddy can't do her. Darn it anyways as the fish will plain be a snappin good today!

On a side note......Can you guys keep your ears open for any LX3's for sale cheap. My cousins hut got broken into out there on Muskeg and a couple of these units were swiped as well as some other stuff. Darn Vermin!

Regards all.....fiskyknut

P.S.....Ripper thanks for that frozen Shiner info too man.

      South Shore.  A good bite was reported for last week with the warmer temperatures in 24-32'. In addition to traditional daytime bite, some anglers getting into some good fish after dark on structure which is not typical. Morning evening bite in 15-17' for walleyes continues to be good.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape as warm weather moving around ice. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink UV.  Small rippin raps in bright and gold colors. Auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained hot. Good walleyes in 18-28' with saugers and perch in deeper water. Set dead stick a bit higher than jigging line.  Resorts guiding for crappies on the Ontario side of lake, best bite in 30' or deeper, morning best. Crappie mortality rate high when releasing in 25' or deeper thus move on to walleyes or another species when you have your fish.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Jerkin, you are absolutely onto something. Back when I used to put a permanent out in the south metro, I made sure to fish as many weekdays as possible. Weekends were always worthless, no matter the conditions. Luckily vermilion is big enough to get away from it all!

      Clifford, how is the slush out there? I have slush in front of my home and looking at sled tracks they are turning color also.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.
