Thanks fishin. Is the water out of the banks by the dam? Is the landing open?

Nope it does not look too bad, as far as the depth of the water, but the current is moving pretty good yet. The landing is open though.

I was down there this afternoon, talked to a few guys fishing, they all were having a tough time, I think the water is still to high and running to fast, but it's getting closer.. Least the season doesn't close like the Rainy situation, made the mistake of going up there last weekend. Won't be long now just need to string a few days of sun together

Yep It looks low enough now, so I would tell anyone that it is worth a shot now. I would say it is as low as it was before the mini_flood. Let er buck!

Yup... some Sun would = more river spring walleye Fun. They need some sun on their backs in the shallows to get things rolling again. The cooler water temps helped to clean up the clarity a bit, mixed blessings I guess.

A week of mostly sunny sure would help.

Water's still fairly high, but the fishing was decent. Nothing very big, but got walleyes between 12 and 17 inches. Not fast and furious, but decent fishing. Managed to get my three 10 year old nephews a few fish, which was fun.

Another Red report- my bro and a couple buddies fished the Red yesterday. They managed about a dozen walleyes, a bunch of goldeyes, a rock bass, and a white bass. A nice hodge podge to keep them busy. Nothing big though. We're still looking to put a big pig in our boat this Spring and I'm hoping this Fri is the day to do it! We'll see...

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
