Take a peek at some of the recent posts here on the forum.

Temps started dropping around noon on Wednesday afternoon. Pretty cold thru the day yesterday and I woke up to 1 below here in Roseau. Slush and water on the lake road last weekend was froze up solid yesterday.

Gonna be a while yet???

The weather man is forecasting highs in the 40's this week and temps in the 50's this weekend, so we might be fishing open water very soon. If we could get a little rain and run off it would really speed things up...

I've been making regular trips up and down the river and there are promising spots opening between Loman and Birchdale. Loman to the Falls is open pretty good. The little snow makes it easy this year to get some good photos for the website. From Birchdale to here is pretty tight yet. Today was pretty chilly, barely made 10 degrees. Tomorrow we rebound and looks like 50 by the weekend. I'll keep checking because it won't be long now!

Take Care

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
