Thanks everyone for the fishing info thus far. I'll be up on Oak Island this Thursday thru Sunday March 8-11.

Has anyone fished that area recently? I'll be fishing out of the Angle Inn Lodge day rentals.

any last minute tips would be great. Thanks!

Seven of us just got back from fishing out of Walsh's Baystore. We had excellent fishing, with some slow spots also.

We fished two and a half days, and caught enough the first day for two big fish frys. The sauger bite was very good at times in the 24 foot range. A few perch showed up, but not many.

We also caught several protected slot walleyes in the 20 to 24 inch range, along with a 27 incher. In addition, there was a 28, and a 29.5 caught, along with a 42 inch pike. Hope you have a great time!

I went out in T.C's (?) rentals out of Jerry's on 3/2 & 3/3. It was a decent bite until the skies cleared. 17 eye's/sauger the first day & 15 the 2nd. Large red glow frostees were our best option followed closely by a large perch jigging spoon ripped aggressively. Many small ones but still enough eaters. We also had a northern over 40".

Good luck!

Hey Gissert, Frank emailed me the pics of the big hogs you guys got. What a rush that had to have been!!! My wife and I will be fishing with Baystore Camp 3/11 and 3/12. Hopefully we will have some of that luck that your group had. Any chance you would share what types of bait you were using. If so you can email me at tjsweep at hcinet dot net

LuckBites - You must have been fishing out of RC's houses. We have fished with him before - first class all the way.

sweept - We just used Frank's minnows, plus Go Devil/Angel eye type jigging lures. Pink, blue/white and gold were best. On the dead sticks, we used either plain hooks, or a gold kahle/lead head combo.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      Bumping this one up as a reminder - end of the month is not far away!!!  March 1st - you need a 2018 license.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
