We will be arriving in the Winni area early on Friday morning and plan to fish all day on Fri, Sat, and early on Sunday morning. I've been watching the forum for almost a month now in anticipation and it seems the reports have really slowed down (I'm really hoping this is because the fish are biting and they are trying to keep it quiet wink.gif) With the warm weather coming this weekend I hope the perch bite turns on. I don't need to hear any spots or lures or anything, pretty much know what I'm going to be doing, but it's always nice to sit here at work and check reports and see that the bite is on!! Good luck to all.

p.s. We are staying at the hotel in Deer River and plan on hitting up the Wagon Wheel while we are up there for the weekend if anyone's going out in that area, we'll be there.

Are you staying at bahr's or the other hotel (the one I wish I would've stayed at)?...be sure to try the "big'un" at the outpost bar & grill.

We are staying at the newer hotel, I forgot the name of it but I know it has a hot tub and a pool and a heated fish house grin.gif Just hope the fish are biting because we are only bringing food to grill out during the day and planning on catching our dinner! However, if we must eat out I will have to give your recommendation a try. I'm really hoping the wagon wheel has some karaoke going on Friday and Sat night! Any word on if people are catching some perch?!

$40 a night at bahr's. I believe FSN was 1 of only about 5 channels that worked.

I believe where we are at is 79 bucks a night for Two queen beds, and they pack you a lunch and everything for during the day. Not to mention there is nothing better than having a few beers in the hot tub after a long day of fishing! (and the bar is within walking distance)

I would've totally spent the extra money to NOT be at bahr's! Luckily the fishing was good so we weren't there much. However, if you like a place with a 1920's feel, then bahr's is your place.

I've stayed at Bahr's once about 5-6 years ago. It felt like something staight out of the twilight zone. There's better places that's for sure.

      Being a kayak angler I have to be careful going to the big pond because of wind. With calm winds Saturday I had to make a trip. I found a nice gravel spot to park and drag my yak to the water and avoid the madness at public launches. It sure was nice. The pic is from right before I launched, nice and quiet.    Smallies all over in a few feet of water on beds. They didn't want to eat though. Some guys would drop an anchor and pester the same fish for 20 minutes until she ate. That's not my style so I moved on. Eventually I got this football to slam a stick worm fished weightless, texas rigged, like a jerkbait. I didn't sight fish her, just casted into the pencil reeds after missing a blowup on topwater. She slammed it instantly. She was in the slot so she had to be released. I also got a handful of pike, nothing big enough to want to eat except one which jumped right at my kayak and spit the spinnerbait right back at me.    This lake is so awesome and so different from anything I've seen being from TN. It's going to take some time to learn, that's for sure.

      Haven't heard any reports but I'd suggest spots like Ottertail River by Frazee or Wymer Graham lakes for panfish if you can legally park around them any more.  Otherwise you have some bridges like near Zorbaz on Little Pine or Long Bridge by DL, I haven't fished Zorbas but if you don't catch something at Long Bridge your doing something wrong it wont be big but it'll be action.  Otherwise look for public fishing piers, last night saw a bunch of people fishing the one by Long Lake in Vergas.  Can usually catch something off of them.

      Fished Big Pine.  Caught perch lol  Not one walleye.  Fish flies are hatching and the wind kept us off of the lake a lot.  Finally yesterday we fished NW corner of the lake aka calmest spot we could find and we got a few pike.  Otherwise we picked up some decent perch 8-11" on the south side in about 6 feet.  Only saw one walleye being caught all weekend and it was a 21" while fishing for perch next to me.

      While coming home from Big Pine this weekend I lost my tackle box lid which had my 3 Northern Jigs within it.  It is VERY noticeable since it has a huge 3 Northern Jigs logo sticker on the top of it.  I drove from Big Pine's public access to Vergas down through Dunvilla and when I got west of Dunvilla it was not there.  I hit some terrible cross wind on Hwy 10 coming up to the Vergas road but sadly I don't know where it went.  If anyone finds it there is a reward being offered.   Thanks  Cody!

      The key for catching those big eyes is to be a Delta member and wear your hat!

      Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

      They look like they were fun.    15 boats on one spot, eh?  That's a ton!

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.
