32 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

How has the action been so far in March?

Has anyone fished by Morris Point/Bostic Creek area? What about Warroad or Springsteel?

I was wondering the same thing too, I'm heading up on the 24th most likely out from springsteel. If no one chimes in sooner than that I'll let you know how I did HA HA.

Ran into a friend in the baitshop Saturday morning and he tells me he's been doing fairly well so far around the Swift ditch and Warroad areas.

I'm ready to do the tip-up thing but most of my fishing buds are all Walleye snobs!!! That and I'm still after that elusive 15 inch Perch, a tough nut to crack but I've been close!

Dredging is starting today, and according to the Corps of Eng. it will not interfere with the public access. On the other side of the coin, I also heard they were going to dredge almost all the way to the blinker, so a person might have to go a half mile or so out of the way to get to Swift. I'll check it out this weekend, and let ya know what's happening.

My brother and girlfriend just came back from nothern fishing out of warroad.Tuesday they caught 11,and had alot of flags they missed, fish would real out line and drop it.Only 1 fish under the slot with the biggest 40 in. Lots in the 36 37 range. Wednesday only caught 5 all in slot.He said the ice was really sloppy Tuesday but firmed up overnight and never warmed up enough to make a mess Wednesday,Overall good fishing for only 4 lines down. I'll be heading up Sat. morn. to show him how it's done grin.gif I'll give my report when I get back Good luck to all.

Anyone know where to get a bunch of ciscos, herring, or smelt anywhere from the cities up to the lake? Used to live in Bemidji and local grocery stores had whole herring that worked good. Down here in the cities neither Cub or Festival foods had anything. Thanks. Coming up this weekend.

Bait shops up here have Herring in stock this time of year. Supermarkets in Roseau and Warroad have large whole Smelt usually.

Found some at a meat/seafood market here in the cities. I think it was a good deal too. Two pounds of frozen smelt(roughly 20 fish) for $3.59 a bag. Stocked up. Anyone ever get any fish in four mile bay where the river dumps in?

Lot's of Green and Slimeys to be caught in the bay for sure, maybe not right there where the river dumps in though. Try the back end of the 'bay hole', or the shallow water just west barely off of the river channel maybe?

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
