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.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
